Facebook announces new steps to improve privacy protection

Facebook shares fell 5% Tuesday on reports that CEO Mark Zuckerberg agreed to testify in front of Congress about the company's data scandal

"The new Privacy Shortcuts is a menu where you can control your data in just a few taps, with clearer explanations of how our controls work", the company said in a statement.

While deposing before UK Parliament, Wylie said that he believed that one of the clients was Congress. Cambridge Analytica faces charges of data breach. "It could be very limited or it could be widespread". In the meantime, however, it can take some digging to find how you can change each setting - such as how to disconnect third party apps from your page.

The ministry asked a range of queries to Facebook regarding a possible leak of information about any Indian voter who is also a user of the Zuckerberg-owned site.

This comes in the wake of reports that Cambridge Analytica had used Facebook users' data to "influence" election results in several countries.

All they did was play in one of the most exciting national title games of all time , and they brought home some hardware. He returned for the NCAA tournament after missing the entirety of the Big 12 tournament because of a knee injury.

"We've also cleaned up outdated settings so it's clear what information can and can't be shared with apps", Facebook said in the announcement. Now according to a report from The Information (paywall; via Engadget), it seems that Facebook will also be further tweaking the upcoming devices to focus on privacy. But the company hopes its 2.2 billion users will have an easier time navigating its complex and often confusing privacy and security settings.

Facebook announced today (March 28) that is redesigning its privacy controls to make it easier for users to access, alter, and erase the data the social network has stored about them.

The social networking website has made some changes which includes implementation of new privacy tools that will let users delete their data forever, Skynews reported.

Among the new changes: On mobile devices, the site's settings are now accessible from one screen, instead of dotted around on 20 different places in the app.

Sessions added that he might consider a special counsel if Huber finds that "any matters merit the appointment". Huber submitted his resignation as US attorney last March to the incoming Trump administration.

Earlier this month, whistleblower Christopher Wylie revealed political consulting company Cambridge Analytica obtained profiles on 50 million Facebook users via an academic researcher's personality prediction app.

But Facebook clearly wants to be more conservative with its data. "Perhaps the most interesting aspect of Facebook's proposed privacy update is that it may make the GDPR the global standard for data privacy - which would be fantastic news for consumers".

Facebook said in a blog post it had been working on the updates for some time but sped things up to appease users' anger over how the company uses data and as lawmakers around the globe call for regulation.

"Facebook similarly lacks business incentives to engage in responsible data collection because disgruntled advertisers don't have anywhere comparable to go". The company also emphasized that the data is collected in order "to improve people's experience across Facebook", and is not shared or sold with other third-party apps.
