Facebook to notify users if data was shared with CA

Facebook Messenger with open padlock

Based on recent polling, GBH Insights analyst Daniel Ives expects roughly 15 percent of users to disengage somewhat from the social network following revelations that the political data-mining firm Cambridge Analytica improperly obtained personal information from 87 million users to try to influence elections.

Facebook hasn't disclosed that some of its revenue may be tied to illegal trafficking in wildlife in regulatory filings that are supposed to outline various risks and other threats that could crimp its profits or stock price.

Facebook will begin telling users Monday whether their data may have been accessed by the consulting firm Cambridge Analytica. Indeed, Facebook COO Sheryl Sandberg said last week that even if the option were available, users who want to completely opt out of having their data used by advertisers would have to pay. Was that exclusively a failure of your leadership, or did Facebook's business model or other factors create an obstacle to change?

Zuckerberg said in his testimony that Facebook's major investments in security "will significantly impact our profitability going forward". He can't be fired, unless he fires himself.

In it, he offers a full apology writing in part, "We didn't take a broad enough view of our responsibility, and that was a big mistake".

Zuckerberg, however, has been apologizing for not doing better on privacy for 11 years. "(Facebook) happens to be the point of the spear, but all these other app sites that get your personal data, that's another way of us losing our privacy". Facebook users were then accustomed to granting apps permission to see their personal data in exchange for much less.

Who owns what is a hard question to answer, and Facebook clearly hasn't been good at explaining it.

INSKEEP: So you still don't know what the number is.

Sandberg told Today's Savannah Guthrie that given Facebook's ad-driven business model, you can't now avoid data mining of your public profile information.

According to a report in technology website Tech Crunch on Saturday, unless the "Unsend" feature is released for everyone, Facebook will not unsend or retract any more of Zuckerberg's messages. "Facebook needs to talk with us frankly about how we can fix that".

"The message I wanted to convey to him is that if we don't rein in the use of social media, none of us are going to have any privacy anymore", Nelson told reporters after the meeting. Why haven't you put similar effort into making your privacy controls equally easy to use?

The platform is also facing parliamentary investigations in the United Kingdom, renewed questioning from US lawmakers, and potential regulation in several other countries across the globe.

"Facebook is showing that they are trying to make a lot of changes fast and trying to regain everyone's trust", said Carey.

Cambridge Analytica whistleblower Christopher Wylie previously estimated that more than 50 million people were compromised by a personality quiz that collected data from users and their friends.

What's the latest on Facebook's Cambridge Analytica scandal? Neither the Guardian nor Facebook have commented further.

It's possible to imagine something like Facebook run as a nonprofit service for the global commons.

"Thanks to the European rules, he said, "there's a noose that's tightening around the necks of the Googles and the Facebooks" that will eventually force changes in their business models". An early investor in Facebook, Roger McNamee compared Facebook to an addictive substance such as nicotine and alcohol.

Meanwhile, Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak is shutting down his Facebook account.
