Zuckerberg admits Facebook collects data on non-users

Zuckerberg admits Facebook collects data on non-users

Zuckerberg said the European standard, General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), to come into effect on May 25, was more stringent than what was now in place at Facebook and suggested it could serve as a rough model for U.S. rules in the future.

Zuckerberg mostly held his composure, repeating numerous same well-rehearsed answers: He is sorry for the company's mistakes.

"It is inevitable that there will need to be some regulation" of internet firms, Zuckerberg said, but he avoided any specifics. "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. And youre directing people who dont have a Facebook page to sign up for Facebook in order to get their data. That is, if we don't want to have another Cambridge Analytica on our hands.

Pallone said that if Democrats were in charge, "then we would push all the more".

Zuckerberg also repeatedly and recklessly sought to conflate the ability of Facebook users to control who sees the information they post on Facebook and their relative inability to control what data Facebook collects about them. Responding to a question, he told lawmakers that he meant to initiate legal action against the firm accused of stealing personal data and using it for political purposes in the 2016 US Presidential elections.

There is no notification on either site that a Facebook pixel is tracking your activity, but using tools such as Ghostery, a browser plug-in that scans code on sites you visit and alerts you what trackers have been added, makes it easy to determine where a Facebook pixel is installed.

Despite Zuckerberg reiterating that Facebook later reduced the amount of data developers could collect, some lawmakers still expressed concern that once any data leaves Facebook's systems, the company has no idea how it's used. "But there's more to do, and you can find more of the details of the other steps we're taking in the written statement I provided", he said.

Democrat Bobby Rush was in the process of asking Mr Zuckerberg when he learned that Facebook allowed advertisers prevent ads from being shown to certain minority groups, a possible violation of civil rights laws.

"Every time that someone chooses to share something on Facebook ... there is a control", he said.

Facebook is allowing select academics to examine its data as part of a new election research commission.

"The only way we're going to close this trust gap is through legislation that creates and empowers a sufficiently resourced expert oversight agency, with rulemaking authority to protect the digital privacy and ensure that companies protect our users' data".

Facebook's chief operating officer, Sheryl Sandberg, said something similar to NBC last week: "We don't have an opt-out (of ads) at the highest level".

Zuckerberg says he doesn't think Facebook has a monopoly. If it is, and it's being used for other commercial, privacy-breaking things, expect to see Zuckerberg answering many more questions most likely surrounded by a small army of lawyers. We do pay to help produce content. "I'm aware that there may be, but we are working with them". He said the Russian campaign of disinformation had been discovered "right around the time" of the USA presidential election, and said the company had developed "new AI tools" to identify fake accounts responsible. "We didn't take a broad enough view of our responsibility and that was a big mistake".

While Zuckerberg said he couldn't comment on why the duo's content had been flagged, the pair have become a favorite among Trump and his supporters because they regularly take aim at the president's critics (by attacking things like the Black Lives Matter movement, the Obamas, and immigration reform), while endorsing his policies - even those that cause harm to communities of color.
