Facebook says Zuckerberg still won't testify in the UK

Social Networking Lifts Concerns About Data Misuse

Another app, called "myPersonality" has now been revealed to have disclosed "intimate" details of at least three million Facebook users. The users of said accounts allegedly used a popular personality app which includes answering questionnaires.

Facebook is suspending about 200 apps that it believes may have misused data.

I guess if you just leave all that personal data you collected for sale to others openly exposed on the web for years, you have to wonder how valuable it truly is. "It is disappointing that a company with the resources of Facebook chooses not to provide a sufficient level of detail and transparency on various points including on Cambridge Analytica, dark ads, Facebook Connect, the amount spent by Russian Federation on United Kingdom ads on the platform, data collection across the web, budgets for investigations, and that shows general discrepancies between Schroepfer and Zuckerberg's respective testimonies", Collins said in a statement. The data was supposed to be stored and shared anonymously, but the apparent negligence of the researchers only deanonymized those who used the application.

Mark Zuckerberg will no appear in the UK Parliament despite arrest threats being produced over data privacy breaches.

More than 6 million people completed the tests on the myPersonality app and almost half agreed to share data from their Facebook profiles with the project. This may include agreeableness, conscientiousness, and neuroticism.

Following the transaction, the director now directly owns 46,332 shares in the company, valued at approximately $8,260,532.28. The average 12 month price objective among brokerages that have issued ratings on the stock in the a year ago is $195.04.

The Social Network also offered a more detailed answer to why it changed its policies so some 70 per cent of its users - who are in Africa, Asia, Australasia and Latin/South America - no longer have Facebook Ireland as their data controller.

Facebook suspended the app on April 7, after it accessed the "Big Five" personality scores of 3.1 million users, and two million status updates from over 150,000 users, including details about age, gender and relationship status from 4.3 million people. According to New Scientist, the username and password needed to access the data were available on the code-sharing website GitHub for four years.

Anyone who wanted access to the data set could have found the key to download it in less than a minute.

Facebook already suspended myPersonality from the social networking site last month, saying the application is already under investigation for potentially violating their policies.
