Facebook users 'very concerned' about invasion of privacy

Zuckerberg acknowledged that the barrage of negative press had hurt the social media giant.

Consumers have a right to know how their personal data is being used and to receive a free copy of any such information held by a business.

"We want to protect out users' data from malicious abuse of trust", the company wrote in a blog post. Facebook plans to look into whether Cubeyou collected data for academic purposes and then used it commercially, following a partnership with Cambridge University in the UK.

There are some ways you can control what Facebook ads get sent your way. It also launched the menu item "Privacy Shortcuts", where users can lock down who can view their profile or contact them. The company's never allowed the average citizen full access to the data they have on-file.

The median salary for Facebook employees, not accounting for contractors or workers employed by a third party, was $240,430 in 2017, the filing states. Again, I need to note this is the only really odd thing I found in my profile data from Facebook. Goldman Sachs reported this week that Facebook in particular could see a 7% decline in revenue as a result of the news laws. This is not a term that Facebook uses, officially - or at least it's not one they'll admit to using publicly.

A little-noticed segment of Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg's testimonies before USA lawmakers last week was that pertaining to the company's marketing tactic to enrol children.

The stolen data was so widespread that it even swept up information on Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg. One option should be "I don't have a Facebook account".

Menlo Park, California-based Facebook paid to buy, install and maintain security measures for Zuckerberg's personal residences, which include properties in San Francisco and Palo Alto, the filing showed.

Still, more of its users could unfriend the company.

"We encourage the public to exercise a new level of care about their privacy and to take part in forming the future of Facebook in the country", it said.

Mark Zuckerberg is under all sorts of pressure.

Lawmakers also got Zuckerberg to acknowledge that government regulation of Facebook and other internet companies is "inevitable", although he was vague about what kind of rules he believes are needed or what he would support. He also said that "anyone can turn off and opt out of any data collection for ads, whether they use our services or not".
