Facebook To Reward Users Who Report Bugs And Leaks

Facebook To Reward Users Who Report Bugs And Leaks

Facebook's founder, Mark Zuckerberg, said that all affected users would receive a message through their news feeds letting them know about the use of their data. As per the filing, around $7.3 million was spent in providing security to the billionaire's home and during his travel while the company incurred a cost of $1.5 million for Zuckerberg's use of private jets for official trips.

A lot has been written about Facebook over recent weeks, with the coverage reaching a crescendo early this week following Mark Zuckerberg's ten hours of congressional testimony. "The background on "Messenger Kids" is, we heard feedback from thousands of parents that they want to be able to stay in touch with their kids and call them, use apps like FaceTime when they're working late or not around and want to communicate with their kids, but they want to have complete control over that", Mr. Zuckerberg said in response to a question.

Facebook has been embroiled in controversy after it emerged that Cambridge Analytica improperly shared data from 87 million users of the online social media and social networking service company. The incident wiped off billions from Zuckerberg's wealth while Facebook's stock prices slumped in a week. I think Facebook is doing the correct thing.

Last month, Facebook announced a redesign of the entire settings menu on mobile devices from top to bottom to bring in controls that are easier to find and use.

CCFC, along with a coalition of several organisations, complained to the U.S. Federal Trade Commission (FTC) on April 9 against Google and YouTube for violation of the Children's Online Privacy Protection Act.

Facebook also collects information on "offline" activity, as Blunt also asked, which includes information on the locations of users as they roam around the real world.

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 USA voters". The data analytics firm reportedly harvested data of over 80 million Facebook users, which allegedly was used to help President Donald Trump's election campaign in 2016.


During the hearing, Congress showed that it is not equipped to decide Facebook's user policy.

"Coming out of the Cambridge Analytica scandal as it were, I don't think it is as sinister as the media and the congress and the senate in the USA are portraying it to be". The data he transferred is utilized to make shadow profiles for both Ijaz and Sadia - so that if either goes along with, they will be recommended Ali as a companion. Revenue a year ago was $40 billion.

As I understand it, it's a tactic called "pervasive ad targeting", wherein if you happen to check out the price of a desk or a gallon of milk, the internet registers your interest and gloms onto you like a death-eater.

The social network is also facing a probe by United Kingdom data protection regulators and the European Commission. However, as we have seen FB is in the business of hosting content of billions of users, and trading it for advertising revenue.

As the prospect of regulation looms, Facebook is fortunate to have a leader who knows the Capitol corridors so well, said Michael Useem, professor at the Wharton School at the University of Pennsylvania. "People are starting to become more aware of what is going on with the ways collected data can be misused".
