Facebook collects the data of non-facebook users as well, Mark Zuckerberg

Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg testified in front of Congress Tuesday and Wednesday, confirming Facebook user data was collected by a United Kingdom-based analytics firm, Cambridge Analytica. Now, what this exactly means is anyone's guess, but Facebook is pretty much saying it is for "security purposes".

Just like everything else concerning Facebook, he presented this as an idealistic initiative; but questions about children form an alarming component of the broader debate on privacy and data collection.

Facebook said it has partnered with BOOM, an independent digital journalism initiative certified through the International Fact-Checking Network, for a pilot in Karnataka. But the bad news is that you can't really do anything about it for the time being, and Facebook doesn't plan to offer non-users access to the information about them that the service collects. Also, users may not be able to interact with or share content from other apps and websites on Facebook using social plugins such as the Share and Like buttons. "Facebook is not only a social media giant, but also an worldwide business".

"If I'm not a Facebook user, I ought to have a right to know what data Facebook has about me", Froomkin said.

The Founder of Facebook, Mr Mark Zuckberberg, who was interrogated by the U.S. Senate, admitted that the organisation needed to have a more secure platform to forestall further exposure of data to the public.

CCFC, along with a coalition of several organisations, complained to the U.S. Federal Trade Commission (FTC) on April 9 against Google and YouTube for violation of the Children's Online Privacy Protection Act.

It will also list a variety of active apps and websites if you have recently logged into them using Facebook. This is something that Facebook has allowed you to do for several years, but it takes on a new urgency in the aftermath of multiple Facebook data breaches by no fewer than three outside firms.

The rapper added: "Some people have to work within the existing consciousness while some people can shift the consciousness". He made his first public appearance alongside West at his February 2016 Yeezy Season fashion show release party in NY .

The company said it would review all legitimate reports and respond as quickly as possible when a credible threat to user data is identified.

Use these controls to restrict apps from accessing your Facebook data.

"When we learned in 2015 that a Cambridge University researcher associated with the academic institution that built an app that people chose to share their data with".

Goggins said policies need to be made about how ads are presented on Facebook.

Gunkel said with the controversy Facebook has been a part of, they are headed toward becoming government-controlled.

Goggins said although Cambridge Analytica claimed it has deleted Kogan's data, it might have created "a machine learning model" to continue profiling and targeting Facebook users.

Majority of the respondents, making up 39% of the study, said that they are now more careful with what they post and the posts they interact with, while 35% said they are using the platform much less than they used to.
