Facebook Deleted Zuckerberg's Messages From Inboxes

Facebook app The Latest: UK investigates 30 groups, including Facebook
Johnnie Parks | 07 April, 2018, 06:15

Facebook had it turned on by default.

Information commissioner Elizabeth Denham said the ICO was looking at how the data was collected and used. "That, to me, was the failure".

Last month, Facebook suspended Cambridge Analytica for violating the platform's privacy policies after reports emerged that the software company had been gathering the personal data of 87 million social media users. It also faces a Federal Trade Commission probe and questions from 37 USA states and territories. Zuckerberg is scheduled to testify before a Congressional committee on the scandal next week. According to TechCrunch, this forthcoming "unsend" feature will be available within the near future, but details of how it will function remain relatively scant as of now. "But now the Cambridge Analytica scandal has awoken the FTC from its long digital privacy slumber", said Jeffrey Chester, executive director for the Washington-based privacy nonprofit Center for Digital Democracy.

When Facebook- Cambridge Analytica breach came to light, it was reported that over 50 million accounts have been violated to extract personal data without user consent and since then the company is deploying safeguards to protect user data.

Facebook has been scrambling for weeks in the face of the disclosure of the hijacking of private data by the British consulting group working for Donald Trump's 2016 presidential campaign. This restricted how many searches someone can conduct at one time from a particular IP address, a numeric designation that identifies a device's location on the internet.

Facebook this week shared a string of new previously internal information with the public. That includes full name, profile picture, and listings of school or workplace networks.

"We approached this research as we would any other scientific, medical, or clinical research - ensuring that the research protocol would be consistent with HIPAA regulations, the HHS Office of Human Research Protections regulations, and relevant Institutional Review Board decisions", Valentine said in an emailed statement.

It also more directly addresses the misinformation tactics of the Russian "troll farm", the Internet Research Agency, which was disclosed a year ago to have bought a number of Facebook adverts in an attempt to sway the U.S. election.

It's hard to understand why Facebook didn't implement many of these changes earlier, before the company found itself amid a sustained backlash about its approach to privacy. "We'll have more than 20,000 by the end of this year".

"In the secure messaging space we have a concept called transcript consistency, the idea that all participants in a conversation see and react to the same messages", says Sarah Jamie Lewis, a privacy and anonymity researcher and the executive director of Open Privacy.

"We did not follow up and confirm, and that's on us - and particularly once they were active in the election, we should have done that".
