  • Facebook's attempt to impact India's voting process will not be tolerated govt's stern warning to Mark Zuckerberg

Still reeling from the revelation that Cambridge Analytica stealthily acquired information about millions of Facebook users as part of a broader effort to help Donald Trump win the presidential election, Facebook has been busy reassuring users that it does, in fact, care about user privacy.

"We have a responsibility to protect your information". The social media platform's stock value has dropped almost $70 billion since the revelations were first published.

The apology appeared in plain black writing on a white background, alongside Zuckerberg's signature and only a small Facebook logo. This was a breach of trust, and I'm sorry we didn't do more at the time. "We know this is a critical moment for our company".

A Reuters/Ipsos online poll released Sunday found that 41% of Americans trust Facebook to obey laws that protect their personal information, compared with 66% who said they trust Amazon, 62% who trust Alphabet's Google and 60% for Microsoft.

Before Zuckerberg broke his silence on Wednesday night and discussed the changes Facebook would make in response to the scandal, Mozilla had proposed its own fixes. Warner added that "I think the whole industry has been reluctant to accept the fact that we're seeing the dark underbelly of social media and how it can be manipulated".

"These defendants are now fugitives of justice", USA deputy attorney general Rod Rosenstein said at a press conference. They were able to steal 15 billion pages of academic research that was then sold outside the USA for profit.


"You may have heard about a quiz app built by a university researcher that leaked Facebook data of millions of people in 2014", says the ad, which is signed by Zuckerberg and closely resembles his initial public statement on the controversy.

A Facebook spokesman confirmed the company had received the House letter and was reviewing it, but did not say whether or not Zuckerberg would agree to testify.

It found that Facebook was even less trusted than Yahoo, which lost the personal data, including passwords, of more than three billion people who used its services, and did not inform them for more than three years.

Mark Zuckerberg said he expects there are other companies alongside Cambridge Analytica which may have abused their access to large amounts of Facebook user data. When Facebook takes stronger action in how it shares customer data, specifically strengthening its default privacy settings for third party apps, we'll consider returning.
