Zuckerberg admits Facebook collects data on non-users

Exactly how many fake accounts Facebook has shut down.

One of the most talked about things after Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg's grilling by almost 100 U.S. lawmakers over two days had little to do with the congressional hearing and everything to do with how he was sitting. As they did in the Senate a day earlier, both Republicans and Democrats suggested that regulation might be needed, but there was no consensus and few specifics about what that might look like - or even what the biggest problems are. The consultancy said it did not use the data in work it did for the 2016 USA election.

"The only thing that I was surprised at was there was a listing of about 10 companies in the advertising area that had my email address". Ahead of the hearings, the company announced that not only had Cambridge Analytica improperly gathered data from up to 87 million users-rather than the previously reported 50 million-but also "malicious actors" had exploited the site's search features to collect information from "most" of its two billion users.

Facebook remains one of the strongest stocks in the market despite the grilling court hearings.

He also told senators that the special counsel who was investigating alleged Russian tampering in the 2016 USA election had interviewed Facebook staff, although he said he has not been interviewed himself. A number of the Russian ads were on Facebook.

But the company has not clarified its privacy policy yet.

He said he couldn't answer queries from Senator Roy Blunt, who asked on Tuesday whether Facebook tracks users across their computing devices or tracks offline activity.

For the most part, they consist of likening Zuck to a robot. He is working on artificial intelligence technology to weed out hate speech and at the same time ensure that they don't block people for the wrong reasons.

This will help you share the limited amount of information you want with every individual that exists on your friends list. And he's come a long way since he created the platform in his dorm room nearly 15 years ago. Meanwhile, amid fierce competition in Silicon Valley, the company is said to be closely monitoring morale at the company, though The Journal also reports that many employees appear to be mostly undaunted by the scandal.

Congress gets a visit from planet Zuckerberg.

The discussion with Sandberg had been "constructive and open", Jourova said. "We took this step in order to focus our efforts on supporting reasonable privacy measures in California", a company spokesman was quoted as saying, who later added that Facebook still found the act "flawed".

However, he rejected suggestions from Congress members that Facebook users did not have enough control over their data. Cambridge Analytica (who I'm gonna start referring to as CA because I can't be bothered to keep typing that over and over again) used this private data to then provide political advice on how to win over voters.

What happened with Cambridge Analytica illustrates how our personal boundaries for using that data in the real world are being tested.

The call lasted around half an hour and Jourova said the European Union would closely monitor Facebook's implementation of a strict new European Union data protection law which enters into force on May 25. He assured senators the company would have handled the situation differently today.
