Social media: What Mark Zuckerberg said about Facebook Messenger Kids

Facebook charge

Those complaining about the company's alleged abuses were not consumers but competitors.

"If we confirm data abuse, we will shut down the offending app and take legal action against the company selling or buying the data, if necessary". And Facebook, instead of hiding behind all that mouse print, should be required to summarize in short, simple language what we're agreeing to when we click "I agree". Cambridge Analytica quietly retrieved not only all of their information, but the data of their Facebook friends, too, who hadn't taken the test or specifically agreed to be included.

The hands-off, market-driven policy that turbocharged the megacap internet companies' growth has clearly outlived its usefulness considering the recent developments involving Facebook.

In a statement BusinessDay received, Facebook said the disclosure is to encourage people to manage the apps they use.

Lujan pointed out that, "You've said everyone controls their data, but you're collecting data on people that are not even Facebook users who have never signed a consent, a privacy agreement".

He also admitted that FB had committed "breach of trust" but there were no guarantees forthcoming it would not happen again. "Furthermore, it is important for us to tell people if and how their data may have been accessed via This is Your Digital Life".

MIT Technology Review reports Cambridge Analytica, whose parent company entered into a contract with Kogan's company, later "combined the Facebook data with other data sets to build robust, integrated profiles of 30 million U.S. voters".

The for-profit social media giant Facebook harvests vast amounts of data from each of its 2 billion users across the globe.

Facebook allows only children above 13 to have an account, but the new app allows those in the 6-12 age group to send videos and text messages, through an extension of their parent's account.

The problem Facebook faces, though, is that none of its tools, services, or products will ever be looked at in isolation again.

But the relationship brings up a serious question: How will these researchers protect those secrets - our data - especially in the wake of the Cambridge Analytica scandal? He promised to rectify and improve privacy practices and put a legion of 20,000 techies to identify and clean up fake news and remove "hate" posts.

Kogan denied handing over that information to Cambridge Analytica; it is unclear exactly what data the firm obtained and how it was used.

Facebook is required by law to notify users and get their permission before data is shared beyond their preferred privacy settings in what is known as the "consent decree".

The Fiasco in Brief: In 2014, Dr. Aleksandr Kogan developed a personality quiz app ostensibly for academic research purposes.

With congressional hearings over and no immediate momentum behind calls for regulation, the biggest hammer still hanging over Facebook in the US.is a fresh FTC investigation. "We will pay the person who reported the issue, and we will also alert those we believe to be affected". They have said in the past, that they did not know that the data was being passed on, however they have also provided features to enable the scraping of data from user profiles.

For example, a auto company could ask Facebook to identify users who might be likely to change their vehicle in the near future.
