Facebook Faces Questions Over Cambridge Analytica

Yawnnnn

She adds that managing what information can and cannot be used by Facebook is quite complicated saying, "Even if you understand the Facebook business model, you would be hard pushed to know how far your data goes".

Launched in 2014, "Bumble" initially allowed Facebook-based information to speed up and simplify the process of registration and logging in of new users.

They are expected to face questions over the recent Cambridge Analytica scandal, as well as the use of social media and its potential influence on previous and future elections and referendums.

By now I think we've all heard that Facebook was hacked by a tech genius who worked for Cambridge Analytica, which is almost always called a "Trump affiliated company", and they did this to steal 50 million user profiles which they then used to help Trump and the British Brexit campaign to psychologically manipulate voters through targeted ads.

"The issues of personal data processing on the one hand and electoral matters on the other are distinct and separate from each other and my office has no role in regulating the core aspects of electoral activity, including advertising and canvassing activities, other than where personal data is deployed", she will tell the committee.

Would Mark Zuckerberg change Facebook's business model to put users' privacy concerns first?

The company said it does not use the data to target ads, except those inviting people to join Facebook.

Facebook gets some data on non-users from people on its network, such as when a user uploads email addresses of friends. Another way to say that is, there was nothing done wrongly at all and every user accepted that their contacts and data would be harvested. "Knowing what we know now, we should have handled a lot of things differently".
