Facebook sending users privacy notification after data breach

Mark Zuckerberg

When is Mark Zuckerberg testifying before Congress?

This week the Facebook CEO is in talks with several lawmakers before he sits in front of the Senate Commerce, Science and Transportation Committee and the Judiciary Committee tomorrow and then the House Energy and Commerce committee the say after. Zuckerberg said he has called for more investments in security that will "significantly impact our profitability going forward", adding: "I want to be clear about what our priority is: protecting our community is more important than maximizing our profit".

Facebook's CEO Mark Zuckerberg is set to testify to Congress this week to answer questions surrounding the scandal and how the company handles privacy and user data. "That goes for fake news, foreign interference in elections, and hate speech", Zuckerberg said.

"We already have a tool to do this in your privacy settings, and now we will put this tool at the top of your News Feed to make sure everyone sees it", said Mark Zuckerberg on his Facebook page. "I imagine that is going to cover a lot of ground", he said. Again, he'll explain what happened during the USA 2016 presidential election and how a Russia-led disinformation campaign used Facebook to sway opinions on a number of issues. Dianne Feinstein, April 9, 2018 on Capitol Hill. His appearance will give lawmakers the opportunity to grill him about the Cambridge Analytica episode, as well as evidence that Russian agents manipulated Facebook's network to spread false information that may have swayed the 2016 election.

He will also likely face questions about ads and posts placed by Russian operatives, in what US authorities believe was an attempt to influence the USA 2016 election.

Facebook has rolled out a series of changes on its platform in recent weeks aimed at bolstering data privacy and advertising transparency.

"Meantime, we still don't know what Cambridge Analytica and other third parties have done with the data they collected". Facebook believes about 87 million users were affected.

Companies that have been victimised by computer hacks have been accused by lawmakers of failing to take adequate security measures to protect their customers' personal information.

But Facebook's latest PR effort may still prove to be too little, too late. However, if you are not affected then you will get a notification which discusses a new feature which enables the Facebook users to control which apps can access their personal data.

In one update last week, Facebook upped the estimate for the number of people whose data may have been accessed by Cambridge Analytica and revealed that "most people on Facebook" may have had their public profile information scraped by malicious actors.

Technology industry officials said they also expected Zuckerberg's testimony to be long on political point scoring and short on legislative ideas.

Some congressional committee hearings appear divided, with Republicans and Democrats pursuing different agendas as they question witnesses.

The steps are created to deter online information warfare and election meddling that US authorities have accused Russian Federation of pursuing, Zuckerberg said on Friday. "I'm hoping that Mr. Zuckerberg won't just pull things out of his orifices, that he'll talk frankly about what Facebook can and cannot do", he told CNBC.
