Sandberg's boss, Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg, is expected to testify on Capitol Hill next week regarding the scandal.

Facebook has been working on a secret project that asked hospitals to share anonymized patient data, according to a report from CNBC.

A new TechCrunch report states that until Facebook makes this new Unsend feature available to users, it won't unsend or retract any more of Zuckerberg's messages.

Facebook was in talks with organisations including Stanford Medical School about the data-sharing project. He said the messages were "basically telling the Muslims, 'Hey, there's about to be an uprising of the Buddhists, so make sure that you are armed and go to this place.' And then the same thing on the other side". This may take some time. It'll take some time for it to get ready, but in the meanwhile, the firm is promising not to delete any executive's communications. Further, the spokesperson said that they should have done this sooner and they are sorry that they did not.

Amid the privacy scandal, Zuckerberg said Wednesday that mistakes are inevitable when running a company as large as Facebook.

What users write in messages may also be read manually if it's flagged to moderators for breaching Facebook's community guidelines.

Facebook says it began erasing the messages of Zuckerberg and a few other top executives in 2014 after computer hackers obtained and released emails from Sony Pictures executives. "These included limiting the retention period for Mark's messages in Messenger".

Global News has reached out to AIQ for comment, but in a previous statement the company said it has worked "in full compliance within all legal and regulatory requirements in all jurisdictions where we operate".

"When the timer runs out, the message would disappear from both their and the recipients' inboxes", it reported.

But the lack of disclosure has angered some Facebook users, as has the absence of any similar tool for normal users. He said Cambridge Analytica's collection of profile data through an app broke Facebook's terms and conditions, which the analytics firm has denied.

EU spokesman Christian Wigand said Friday that EU Justice Commissioner Vera Jourova will have a telephone call with Facebook's chief operating officer, Sheryl Sandberg, early next week to address the massive data leaks.

Facebook has been in the crosshair of users and regulators worldwide since last month, when it emerged that personal information of millions of users had been improperly shared with the UK-based political consultancy Cambridge Analytica by a third party.

He was informed that their systems had blocked attempts to send inflammatory Messenger instant messages about ethnic cleansing in Myanmar. Users won't be able to do anything about it, but at least now they know that Facebook has monitored their mouse movements, nearby devices, messenger histories, and proximity to cell towers all along.

"We stop those messages from going through".
