Facebook Now Says More Users Hit By Data Scandal

Facebook is on a list of 30 groups in data privacy probe

The referendum technology pledge comes after Facebook admitted that nearly 45,000 Irish people were caught up in the Cambridge Analytica data-sharing scandal, which has now affected 87m people in total, more than the 50m that were initially reported. Zuckerberg, who is scheduled to testify before two Congressional committees next week, said the company hadn't witnessed user defections or a substantial impact on its ad sales. She also sent a letter late Thursday to the European Union trying to explain the steps taken to protect data.

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

It is claimed Cambridge Analytica then used the data to target voters in the US Presidential election and push them towards voting for Donald Trump.

The episode has sparked questions over privacy on the social media platform, and led to calls for tough new regulation. Zuckerberg also was criticized for initially failing to apologize when he did break the silence. "Facebook had detected people trying to send sensational messages through the Messenger app, he said". Facebook had it turned on by default. But the error will likely do little to reassure the public in the wake of a much larger ongoing scandal.

The penalties for violating the order would be devastating, even for Facebook.

However, the groups, which have worked with Facebook to flag risky content, have revealed it took more than four days for the company to respond when the messages started circulating online during the Rohingya crisis. "And still we connect people". There was a military crackdown that caused more than 600,000 mostly Muslim Rohingya in the country's Rakhine province to flee across the border with Bangladesh by the end of 2017 and left an unknown number of people dead.

"Consumers are not in the position to know that the company passes on its data also for commercial use", he said.

The Referendum Commission says that it does not monitor social media during campaigns.

First, on Cambridge Analytica, Facebook is not incorrect in arguing that while it is accountable for what happened on its platform between November 2013 and December 2015 - the years the Kogan App was active - it does not have the means or the mandate to investigate "rogue actor" Cambridge Analytica.

"We have discussed this feature several times".

In a related development, the Facebook security team has deleted Mark Zuckerberg's messages on Facebook Messenger's recipient side of all non-company officials and ex-employees, reported TechCrunch.

If you follow these steps you will no longer have a Facebook account. "We made a number of changes to protect our executives' communications", Facebook told TechCrunch. The Sony messages included disparaging remarks about movie stars and other people in the entertainment industry. "We did so in full compliance with our legal obligations to preserve messages", Facebook said.

Facebook plans to roll out an "unsend" feature to its messaging service, after the social network was caught retracting messages sent by Mark Zuckerberg and other executives.

"The content of messages between people is not used for ads targeting", a company spokesperson said. "This may take some time", a Facebook spokeswoman wrote in an email on Friday.

Facebook stands by the measure. That is, unless you are Mark Zuckerberg. Automated tools can also do the work.

Once again, Zuckerberg came under fire this week after he told Vox's Ezra Klein that Facebook helped snuff out anti-Rohingya propaganda through the Messenger scans mentioned above.

"As we find those, we're going to notify people", she said. In chat, messages disappear after all parties have read them.
