EU senses Facebook scandal shifts privacy tide in its favour

EU to mull over social networks privacy Facebook CEO's Compensation Soars To $8.9 Million As Security Costs Jump

The testimony of Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg before the US Congress that the social media giant "will do everything possible to ensure a free and fair election in some countries including India", has come under severe criticism in India and overseas. It was obtained by the media on Friday.

The California Consumer Privacy Act requires companies to disclose the type of personal data they gather and give people the right to prevent businesses from selling their personal data. "The background on "Messenger Kids" is, we heard feedback from thousands of parents that they want to be able to stay in touch with their kids and call them, use apps like FaceTime when they're working late or not around and want to communicate with their kids, but they want to have complete control over that", Mr. Zuckerberg said in response to a question. Indonesia also allegedly saw the user data of 1 million citizens caught up in Facebook's data scandal.

Testifying before the US Congress, Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg reportedly acknowledged that he made a lot of mistakes while running the social media platform and that Facebook will do its best to protect the integrity of elections in countries like India, Brazil, Mexico and Pakistan.

There are over 67 million Facebook accounts in the Philippines, according to a 2018 report by UK-based consultancy firm We Are Social.

One of such accusations was the information that Facebook and related companies violate user privacy and listening to conversations, collect all available data about the person. Cambridge Analytica has disputed that figure.

Lascelles quite happy at Newcastle, says Benitez
His last five games have seen the England global score five goals and he can be backed at [3.3] to find the net. Nine of their 26 wins against the Magpies in the division have been by a single goal, including the last three.

The survey research was conducted on 10,000 respondents across 10 nations in January and February, prior to recent revelations that the British data firm Cambridge Analytica had improperly harvested personal data from up to 87 million Facebook users to create targeted political ads.

Those who accessed the app, did not only put their personal data in jeopardy, but also the data of all their Facebook friends.

Kogan denied handing over the information to Cambridge Analytica for use on any of its campaigns.

Meanwhile, NPC has urged Filipino Facebook users to remain vigilant and prudent with their online activities.
