What does Facebook know about you?

What does Facebook know about you?

The problem isn't that Mark Zuckerberg is a businessman, and an exceptionally gifted one, but that he pretends to have stumbled out of the lyrics of John Lennon's song "Imagine".

Some form of legislation is necessary, Blumenthal said. Zuckerberg unconvincingly replied, "It certainly doesn't feel like that to me". And here, the GDPR should help, because it "introduces the concept of profile portability, whereby a user can move her profile from one service provider to another, like we do when porting our telephone profile - the mobile phone number - from one operator to another".

The second and final day of his testimony to the US Congress regarding the Cambridge Analytica debacle was a travesty.

Like the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau created in the wake of the 2008 financial crisis, the new agency's central objective would be to represent the rights of consumers.

Tufekci says the targeting specificity that Facebook user data allows is chilling, giving as an example the ability to determine if a person is bipolar: "You can predict people's likelihood of entering a depressive state or a manic state in the next few months ... you can imagine the kind of manipulation that it's open to".

Fears of overcorrection or the enactment of too much regulation were shared vocally by Republicans on the House of Representatives committee. But he also flubbed simple factual questions about the consent decree. So it was a theoretical "yes" by Zuckerberg for more internal regulation; and another "yes" for more investment in artificial intelligence (AI) to detect security breaches and fake news.

Look, I'm not condoning what Mark Zuckerberg and those working in his Facebook fiefdom did in the mishandling our personal data.

"We know that drug dealers, doctors and pharmacists running pill mills and distributors in the pharmaceutical industry are responsible for the scourge of the opioid epidemic, but when it was brought to our attention that these drugs are being sold on Facebook, we needed to take steps to address it", McKinley said on Friday.

Mr. Zuckerberg spent much of past year travelling after he pledged to visit all the U.S. States that he had not previously been to.

Zuckerberg was asked about that topic again this week by several members of Congress Tuesday and Wednesday. And in 2011, Facebook settled privacy complaints by the U.S. Federal Trade Commission by agreeing to get clear consent from users before sharing their material. On Tuesday, 84-year old Senator Orrin Hatch, R-Utah, who had been a senator for almost eight years when Zuckerberg was born, asked how Facebook's business model works given that it is free.

"Just like the bug bounty programme, Facebook will reward based on the impact of each report".

But I'm certain any ad or story I view is noted somewhere and I'll get more of the same.

More recently, revelations about Facebook have entered even darker dimensions. Thomas Edison famously said that genius is one per cent inspiration and ninety-nine per cent perspiration, and Zuckerberg qualifies.

It's a situation that firmly belongs in the "this sounded like a good idea at the time" department.

Washington Post columnist Dana Milbank made this point clearly, listing more than a half dozen lawmaker questions like: How many improper data transfers to third parties have there been? He added with a smirk "Well, Senator, I try not to come to D.C". It could elect to turn off location tracking of users by default, to stop collecting information on people's activity away from Facebook without express permission, and to give people even more information that shows how advertisers target them for each Facebook ad they see.
