Facebook Users Not Fazed By Privacy Scandal

Will Facebook's data-scraping woes bleed into healthcare and pharma?

The CEO of Facebook Mark Zuckerberg vowed to revamp Facebook and had said the company would ensure that its platform is not misused to influence elections in India and elsewhere.

The compensation costs include the security provided at Zuckerberg's home and during travel and the expense incurred from his private air travel.

Zuckerberg repeatedly assured lawmakers that he believed Facebook is in compliance with that 2011 agreement. For being different, I salute Mr Zuckerberg.

Investigative reporter Julia Angwin says that Facebook is not the only company that collects data in this way. The incident wiped off billions from Zuckerberg's wealth while Facebook's stock prices slumped in a week.

Facebook is required by law to notify users and get their permission before data is shared beyond their preferred privacy settings in what is known as the "consent decree".

By now Facebook, users seem to finally get that they might not get charged anything for using the social networking service, but it sure isn't free, not after being subjected to ad after tailored ad.

"There's just so much stuff out there now", she said.

"If we confirm data abuse, we will shut down the offending app and take legal action against the company selling or buying the data, if necessary". For those of you who do not wish to quit Facebook but may want to protect your information and guard your privacy, there are five major things you need to take care of. How do we deal with the new public sphere as it operates?' " She added: "People mistakenly think that Facebook sells your data. "You can go back home, spend $10 million on lobbyists and fight us, or you can go back home and help us solve this problem". Any violations of the 2011 agreement could subject Facebook to fines of $41,484 per violation per user per day.

"The biggest growing segment for these social media platforms is the youth, and they grew up with this, so they know all their data is being collected, and they know they don't have privacy", said Detert.

"Now that advertisers are realising they can use this information, they are getting more aggressive about how they use it". "They are already having conversations about how they cannot only make sure their current systems better protect user privacy and autonomy, but how artificially intelligence systems they are using can have ethical alignment built in by design", said Ms McEvoy.

That structure could on the one hand end up disadvantaging less affluent users while simultaneously allowing wealthier consumers - the ones advertisers might be most eager to court - to bypass ads altogether. On account of the shadow profile, he has an instant association with Ali in Facebook's "Friend's You May Know" feature. But the fact of the matter is, Facebook is not your friend or your babysitter. In other words, we will have to live with the animal we don't like! The Facebook founder is the fifth richest person in the world - an astounding achievement for a 33-year-old (the only other person in the top ten under the age of 60 is Amazon founder Jeff Bezos). Zuckerberg stopped well short of that, but expressed willingness to work with Senators on legislation. I found this out when I clicked on the Ads section in my Facebook file, which loaded a history of the dozen ads I had clicked on while browsing the social network.

In my view as a scholar of law and ethics in the technology industry, Facebook - and other leading tech firms such as Google and Twitter - should join nations around the world and declare that privacy and cybersecurity are human rights that must be respected.
