"The goal of this legislation is to ensure that all major platforms that sell political advertisements are held to the same rules of the road". Sandberg said in an interview to NBC. "We are not sweeping up data". It is reported that just 320 people in India downloaded the app which started collecting data not only of the downloaders but all their contacts.

The messages were originally sent to former employees and people outside of Facebook.

Australian authorities say they are investigating whether Facebook breached the country's privacy law when personal information of more than 300,000 Australian users was obtained by Cambridge Analytica, a Trump-linked political consulting firm, without their authorization.

Through a series of sting operations, Cambridge Analytica was revealed to have unscrupulously collected data secretively harvested by an app planted on Facebook users' pages.

"When we received word that this researcher gave the data to Cambridge Analytica, they assured us it was deleted", she said. "But what we didn't do was the next step of an audit and we're trying to do that now". The changes are outlined in the blog, It's Time to Make Our Privacy Tools Easier to Find.

Sandberg said Facebook also should have been more proactive in dealing with Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election.

Dr Maureen Mapp, Professor of Law said, "Assuming each one of them brought a claim for compensation for distress caused by the data breach.each individual may be awarded £12,500 (USD 17,500 approx) as damages".

In a statement provided to CNBC, Cathleen Gates, from the American College of Cardiology, said it had been "engaged in discussions with Facebook" concerning the use of anonymised data to further scientific research.

"We're doing an investigation, we're going to do audits and yes, we think it's possible, that's why we're doing the audit", she said.

If you send Mark Zuckerberg a Facebook message, in other words, he has a copy for ever.

While a common Facebook user can never delete messages already sent to friends or colleagues, Facebook reportedly did so when it came to its CEO, Mark Zuckerberg.

Perhaps the announcing the unsend feature is a way to soften the severity of deleting messages from users conversations without consent or notice by making it look like they were testing the feature.

By contrast, messages from Zuckerberg that are older than four years old seem to comprise the bulk of those deleted, according to TechCrunch.

"I can speak for myself". Our responsibility now is to make sure this doesn't happen again. Let us know in the comment section.
