Zuckerberg denies knowledge of Facebook shadow profiles

For all the wrong reasons.

It is a question asked in various forms by lawmakers in both the Senate and the House, but in most cases Zuckerberg evaded it by proposing that his team follow up later. "That's under way, I imagine we'll find some things". But amid the madness, a novel idea has surfaced. In some instances, they anxious that Facebook wasn't taking down harmful content fast enough, like fake profiles of people who are stealing pictures from real people, as well as posts seeking to recruit for terrorist ideologies. This isn't the most popular proposal.

But why are there so many videos of people claiming to have proved Facebook is listening?

Set aside for a moment the technical questions about precisely how this data might be secured, and focus on the underlying assumptions here: that this is a matter of consumer choice; that the harm here is to us as individuals, and that it can be remedied by compensating Facebook for its lost opportunity of selling us to its advertisers.

Writing in The New York Times, Zeynep Tufekci gives the example of health information.

It's time to move on from everyone's favorite Facebook conspiracy theory: No, Facebook is not listening to you through your phone's microphone. It wasn't clear to me who they are and under what circumstances they got that information. "Privacy laws help ensure personal data is used only for its intended objective".

All of this data was taken and used by CA without any of the users giving their permission or even being aware. Let's round it up to $300 even.

Sen. Dick Durbin, D-Illinois, asked Zuckerberg on Tuesday during the Senate committees hearing about the company's handling of Messenger Kids data.

In 2011, a Irish privacy group sent a complaint about shadow profiling - collecting data including but not limited to email addresses, names, telephone numbers, addresses and work information - from non-members. Some of the features require more personal info than others; pictures, once posted, can potentially remain in the enormous cloud of internet data forever.

"You are the product, and people are making money out of your transactions, your data, your behavior, your preferences", Dillon said. "There is nothing that prevents a political party in Canada from using Facebook or any other advertising platform to micro-target people".

Nevertheless, I think the service you provide is valuable.

GREG WALDEN: While Facebook has certainly grown, I worry it may not have matured. You're in a tough spot.

Recent comments by Facebook executives also echo outside research conducted by analyst firms like Jefferies Equity Research. "What information have I innocently shared has become used in a way I'm absolutely uncomfortable with?" "I should reasonably expect that that's going to work as it is presented to me". Zuckerberg said he will know more when the current investigation is over. With local newspapers and independent radio stations on the decline, there aren't many ways for local businesses to reach me these days.

However, he rejected suggestions from Congress members that Facebook users did not have enough control over their data.

Zuckerberg told Senator Orrin Hatch (R-UT) that there would always be a free version of Facebook, but that a paid option might be a possibility later.
