Facebook’s data breach occurred between November 2013 and December 2015

Given its current predicament, no wonder it made a decision to.

TechCrunch first reported on this phenomenon yesterday, with a story that describes how several people who got access to their message history through Facebook's "Download Your Information" tool noticed their messages to CEO Mark Zuckerberg were in the archive, but his replies had disappeared-and not just recent ones, but all the way back to 2010. "We did so in full compliance with our legal obligations to preserve messages", Facebook said. Labels clearly marking these ads as political will roll out in the US later this spring, and all of these transparency features will be rolled out worldwide in the coming months, the company said Friday.

Mark Zuckerberg, Facebook's founder and CEO, is scheduled to testify before Congress Wednesday in relation to the Cambridge Analytica scandal.

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.

"When we received word that this researcher gave the data to Cambridge Analytica, they assured us it was deleted", she said. "We should have done this sooner-and we're sorry that we did not", Facebook spokesperson Elka Looks said in a statement.

From May 25, companies gathering the personal data of European Union residents will have to comply with the General Data Protection regulation (GDPR).

Boss Mark Zuckerberg recently revealed that Facebook was developing new technology in response to recent scandals over Russian interference in western elections.

Not all of Zuckerberg's messages from before 2014 have been erased by Facebook.

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.

Canada's province of British Columbia and Canada's federal government combined investigations on Thursday, saying they had launched a joint probe into Facebook and Canadian data firm AggregateIQ, while Australian authorities said they were exploring whether the social media company had breached user privacy laws. Mr Zuckerberg responded to the news by pledging stricter access from apps to personal profiles and that Facebook would notify those affected.

Facebook will be making sure that no agencies or entities, especially the Internet Research Agency (IRA) of Russian Federation, will be allowed to manipulate the people by spreading false news and misleading content to influence elections of 2018.

Users can't adjust how that data is shown to third parties, she said. "With all of the data exchanged over Facebook and other platforms, users deserve to know how their information is shared and secured".
