Facebook stops funding campaign against Privacy Act

Facebook stops funding campaign against Privacy Act

Kane in your Corner says two things should be kept in mind while using social media: First, the more convenient a user wants their social media experience to be, the less private it will be. It's not something that you have property rights to and it can't be stolen. "Individuals continue to have an interest in their information even after it's released and that interest equals control in a lot of cases".

How much data does Facebook collect on users - and non-users?

Facebook is withdrawing its opposition to the California Consumer Privacy Act, the company confirmed earlier this week, with the move being welcomed by a number of privacy advocacy groups in the state.

Zuckerberg: Congressman, I'm not, I'm not familiar with that. "I should reasonably expect that that's going to work as it is presented to me".

■ Remember when you had to be a college student to use Facebook? "What we know now is that Cambridge Analytica improperly obtained some information about millions of Facebook members by buying it from an app developer that people had shared it with", he said. There are multiple articles showing you how to change your privacy settings and even delete Facebook altogether.

And if you're anxious Facebook might be listening to you through your phone, you might not like what the company has in store. If Facebook stopped collecting this data, it would undermine its entire business model.




A new Gallup poll, which was conducted in the lead-up to Zuckerberg's trip to Capitol Hill and released Wednesday, found that 43 percent of users are "very concerned"-a 13-point jump from the last survey in 2011-and 31 percent are "somewhat concerned" about privacy on the platform. They're trustees and take care of our information online and from that flows certain regulatory expectations", Laidlaw said".

Zuckerberg also didn't rule out the possibility that Facebook might eventually offer a version giving people the option of paying a monthly fee in exchange for not having their personal information mined for advertising.

Before many people join a network, it may not be so useful. "Some of the questions asked of Mark Zuckerberg didn't suggest to me a level of understanding of the nuance of privacy by some of the senators". For those of us who have been paying attention to Facebook and its litany of scandals over the past few months, Zuck's testimony in front of committees from the Senate and a (distinctly more lucid) one from the House told us nothing new. It's data that made Zuckerberg a billionaire.

Fraser said it's not clear if more regulation of social networking is necessary.

For all of Zuckerberg's claims that Facebook users own their data, users - and non-users - have no way of determining the full trove of data that the company stores on an individual.
