Zuckerberg Finally Speaks On The Facebook Scandal

Zuckerberg Finally Speaks On The Facebook Scandal

Such a tool was deployed for the first time in the French elections in 2017. And built models to exploit what we knew about them and target their inner demons.

"We are not going to say that we're not going to have issues", Sandberg said. "We will reduce the data you give an app when you sign in -to only your name, profile photo, and email address", Zuckerberg said.

However at the weekend the New York Times and the Observer reported Wylie's allegations, and said their investigation found evidence that Cambridge Analytica not only used the data, but still possessed most, or all of it.

"I feel a lot better about the systems now".

"I deeply regret that we didn't do enough to deal with it", Sandberg wrote.

These users, which is nearly all of us, need to ask themselves, what are we really getting in return?

There are other questions as well.

"There's a big election in Brazil".

"I care deeply about the democratic process and protecting its integrity", said Facebook kingpin Mark Zuckerberg a year ago, as he performed damage control on the news that his service was used to spread false and divisive information during the 2016 campaign.

While the transfer of such data is no longer allowed under Facebook rules, Zuckerberg vowed additional measures "to secure our platform".

Reports indicate that the data firm, which allegedly has ties to President Donald Trump's campaign, reportedly accessed information from about 50 million Facebook users without their knowledge. The governing Bharatiya Janata Party and main opposition Congress Party have accused each other of using the company's services.

He also revealed he is "sure someone's trying" to meddle with the upcoming U.S. midterm elections.

"I'm open to doing [testifying]", the CEO said.

Zuckerberg said in a statement he has "been working to understand exactly what happened and how to make sure this doesn't happen again".

"And there are going to be some new tactics that we need to make sure that we observe and get in front of", he added. It says that advertising is being "paused" and that if the right steps are taken by Facebook "we'll consider returning".

Will a meaningful number of people actually #DeleteFacebook?

We look forward to Facebook instituting some of the things that Zuckerberg promised today.

Facebook, which has over two billion users globally, including over 200 million in India, had faced backlash on the data scandal issue, prompting Zuckerberg to issue an apology for the "major breach of trust", and promising to take steps to protect user data.
