Facebook to hire more than 5000 people

Facebook to hire more than 5000 people

That is a good question.

But it was too late to stop the mocking on social media. Harvesting the data and using it to target adsmore effectively than its competitors can is how Facebook makes the bulk of its money. And Facebook knows that as long as your 2 billion friends are online, you're probably not going anywhere. So, to put those numbers into better perspective, that means around 36.38 million people in the USA have deleted the Facebook phone app, while 19.26 million have deleted their accounts altogether.

Ironically, one of the ways the world has learned of the way Facebook collects and analyses non-members was through data breaches such as the one that hit the company in 2013.

"We are launching an investigation into Facebook to determine whether there is unauthorized processing of personal data of Filipinos", the letter dated April 11 read.

BEN RAY LUJAN: Facebook has detailed profiles on people who have never signed up for Facebook - yes or no. It included names and email addresses of friends and relatives and at least one "web bug" created to identify him to Facebook's web servers when he opened the email. "Although they might be making some changes today in response to public and regulatory pressure, this needs to be seen as an outcome of very permissive attitudes towards those companies".

"So, now, we have to go through every part of our relationship with people to make sure that we're taking a broad enough view of our responsibility", he said.

She continued: "You didn't know what a shadow profile was".

Zuckerberg responded saying: "Congressman, that is an accurate description of the prank website I made when I was a sophomore".

Whilst being grilled by Senator Orrin Hatch, Zuckerberg was asked whether Facebook would always be free.


Mr Zuckerberg was ridiculed, with some labelling it "ridiculous", and describing the tech billion-aire as a "man-child".

Yet, when asked if his data had been improperly used, he replied: "Yes". However, this meant that the Facebook Events data would also include information about who else attended the event, as well as any posts shared on the event's wall.

So, not having a Facebook account is not an effective way to avoid its data harvesting.

Still, he said, lawmakers need to be careful, noting that new rules or laws could hurt smaller businesses more than a behemoth like Facebook.

But that's not entirely true.

Multiple questions revolved around what Facebook is doing to protect user data and privacy. Check out our guide to downloading your Facebook data, and if you feel uncomfortable about what you find, here's how to delete, disable, or limit your Facebook account.

- Do you trust Facebook? "And then, about a month ago, we heard a new report that suggested that this was not true", he said.

Investigative reporter Julia Angwin says that Facebook is not the only company that collects data in this way. Along with Google, Facebook is consistently among the top three data-collectors in the field, said Reuben Binns, an Oxford University computer scientist who researches these beacons.
