Zuckerberg Testimony Doesn't Change Our View on Facebook

Mark Zuckerberg Regulation ‘inevitable for social media firms

Another data privacy drama will certainly fuel calls to regulate the social-media giant.

While the future of Facebook may be uncertain, Twitter seems to be more lively than ever.

We need government oversight. We use the data that people put into the system in order to make them more relevant.

Laidlaw said this shocking Facebook scandal is specific damage but says there are other general ways that "chill" participation online. "And why should we trust Facebook to make the necessary changes to ensure user privacy and give people a clearer picture of your privacy policies?". "You need to save your ship".

Facebook said last week that almost 1.2 million of its users in the Philippines may have had their data exposed to Cambridge Analytica, more than any other country outside the United States. But he warned that lawmakers should be careful in what they propose.

"We're not going to share people's information except for with the people that they've asked for it to be shared". The company's core advertising business is dependent on its large user base. The questions from House members were more pointed than those from senators the day before, but the themes of privacy and regulation were about the same.

For the Electronic Privacy Information Centers Marc Rotenberg, Zuckerbergs statement raises significant questions.

Previously, the sisters had tweeted that Facebook had not contacted them. 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.

"Congress is good at two things: doing nothing, and overreacting", Rep. Billy Long, a Republican representing Missouri, told Zuckerberg in a hearing Wednesday.

NPC said failure of Facebook to submit the "required" documents within 15 days will prompt the privacy body to "take further corrective actions".

He also said he was not familiar with what various media reports call "shadow profiles", collections of data assembled on Facebook users that they have no knowledge of or control over.

Much like their US counterparts, European Union officials are seething over Facebook's privacy mishaps. We know from numerous studies, including one in the American Journal of Epidemiology, that the mental health of Facebook users consistently declines with increased Facebook use.

Because of this, 1.2 million more Filipinos have been indirectly affected by the data scandal - making the Philippines the second most affected country in terms of total number of data subjects.
