Despite Privacy Uproar, Facebook Users Aren't Changing Their Privacy Settings

European Commission urges Facebook to'cooperate fully in data scandal

Harris presses Zuckerberg on accountability, transparency failures

He was confident. He capably tackled numerous queries proposed last week by Bloomberg columnists. They made $40 billion past year selling ads alone and in spite of promising to not continue to work with third-party data brokers.

Perhaps the most notable admission from Zuckerberg during the second day of the inquiry was in regard to "shadow profiles", or the collection of data from individuals who do not actually have a Facebook account. But it's a loss for the rest of us.

So to add insult to injury, not only has the non-Facebook user had their data gathered without their consent, but they have to sign up to a service they don't want and "consent" to give up more information to the company in the process of requesting this data. The Data Abuse Bounty, inspired by Facebook's existing bug bounty program, will help the platform identify violations of its security and privacy policies.

It was a point that Republican Senator John Kennedy raised with Zuckerberg this week (see video).

While younger generations are switching to Instagram and Snapchat as their primary social media platforms, 82 percent of 18-29-year-olds use Facebook, according to a Pew Research Center study.

The answer, as Zuckerberg surely knows, is yes. Users' data being leaked as well as allegations of the site's algorithm promoting some voices on one side of the political fence while blocking some on the other side had CEO Mark Zuckerberg testifying before a Congressional panel this past week. If you wish to trade Facebook or Alphabet you should seek financial advice.

"[Facebook] is sitting on one of the richest, most longitudinal, quantitative data sets we've ever seen", said Khatibloo.

The hearings generated much heat but little light, as was predicted by Zeynep Tufekci, a professor at the University of North Carolina and one of the keenest observers of Facebook and our evolving digital landscape.

Would being asked to pay Facebook to remove ads make you appreciate their value or resent them even more?

Another control settings lets you manage "the privacy of things that you post using old Facebook mobile apps that do not have the inline audience selector, such as outdated versions of Facebook for BlackBerry".

Macron said it had also been France which convinced Trump that the strikes had to be limited to suspected chemical weapons sites. We are determined to completely crush ISIS and create the conditions that will prevent its return", she said.

Tufekci says the targeting specificity that Facebook user data allows is chilling, giving as an example the ability to determine if a person is bipolar: "You can predict people's likelihood of entering a depressive state or a manic state in the next few months ... you can imagine the kind of manipulation that it's open to".

Technically, Facebook's users can turn off targeted advertisements or disable sensitive features such as image recognition in photos. In 2016, Bloomberg reported that the company disclosed what it had spent on Zuckerberg's personal security for 2013, 2014 and 2015 for the first time after questions from the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission. "The profits are all based on the user's info, but the users get none of the profits back".

This conversation is relevant because Zuckerberg was asked twice by congress about Facebook potentially offering subscriptions.

In 2010, Eric Schmidt of Google noted that the world produced as much information in two days as we did from the dawn of civilisation until 2003.

Facebook gets some data on non-users from people on its network, such as when a user uploads email addresses of friends. And regardless, there is no way Zuckerberg can agree to this.
