In what is raising questions over possible breach of user trust, people have reported that messages received from Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg have disappeared from their Facebook inboxes, according to a media report.

The company's moderators can review any messages that are flagged by users or the automated systems.

Facebook now offers such a timer in Secret Conversations, a feature within Messenger that encrypts messages and lets users determine how long the messages are visible before they disappear.

We may never know what messages belonging to Zuckerberg Facebook wants to hide.

The EU is preparing to launch tough new data protection rules next month, under which companies could be fined up to four per cent of their global turnover for breaches.

Facebook on Wednesday issued updates of its data policy, which sheds more light on how much data it collects on users and how that information is shared with other services.

Sandberg also emphasized that the company is focused on protecting its users' data so that they may again feel comfortable connecting through Facebook.

The project appears to be another victim of Facebook's growing Cambridge Analytica data leak scandal, in which the British research firm allegedly took personal user data of some 87 million from Facebook improperly, per The Hill.

The social network admitted it began erasing the messages of Mr Zuckerberg and other top executives in 2014 after hackers got hold of and released emails from Sony Pictures executives. These included limiting the retention period for Marks messages in Messenger.

Zuckerberg plans to speak at a jpint hearing of two Senate panels Tuesday and a House panel Wednesday about Cambridge Analytica and Facebook's data privacy practices.

Culture Secretary Matt Hancock is to meet Facebook next Wednesday and will "seek further assurances that United Kingdom users' data won't be misused in future", the Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport has said.

The fallout and accompanying controversy resulting from the revelation that Cambridge Analytica stealthily acquired information from upwards of 87 billion unsuspecting Facebook users shows no signs of slowing down anytime soon.

Facebook says page administrators and advertisers will be verified by being asked to provide a government-issued ID.

Facebook users can opt out of seeing targeted ads, but cannot shut off ads altogether.

"Until today, people could enter another person's phone number or email address into Facebook search to help find them".
