  • Survey claims that 9% of Facebook users have deleted their accounts

THE FACTS: That's only partly true.

In 2011, a Irish privacy group sent a complaint about shadow profiling - collecting data including but not limited to email addresses, names, telephone numbers, addresses and work information - from non-members.

Earlier this year, Mr Zuckerberg sold US$357 million worth of Facebook shares to fund his philanthropic organisation, the Chan Zuckerberg Initiative, after selling almost US$1 billion in stock last year.

If this is true, a person's data is worth more than the customized experience Facebook delivers.

House lawmakers aggressively questioned Zuckerberg Wednesday on user data, privacy settings and whether the company is biased against conservatives. Indonesia's minister for communications also recently stated that he would "deeply consider" blocking access to Facebook in the country if the company's actions relating to the recent data scandal were unsatisfactory. Any other data stealing, or privacy issues would not have brought him before Congress.

Social networking giant Facebook has chose to stop funding a campaign that aims to defeat the California Consumer Privacy Act. "Now is that my photo or is it your photo?" he said. And so, unfortunately, it's true that everyone is racing to get enormous amounts of data about us, and we don't have a huge amount of control over that until perhaps Congress maybe steps in with some of the things that they've been discussing in the past few days. For example, Facebook tracks your activity across websites outside the platform, including not just what sites you visit, but whether you've made purchases or shared information with a company-that's how it knows what ads should be targeted to you.

"Yesterday when we talked, I gave the relatively harmless example that I'm communicating with my friends on Facebook and indicate that I love a certain kind of chocolate".

Google Testing Self Destructing Email For Gmail
Users will be able to select a date when the email will expire, after which the receiver will no longer be able to see the email. Google, if rumors are right, working on enhanced confidential mode , which will allow the recording of the email as well.


"You are the product, and people are making money out of your transactions, your data, your behavior, your preferences", Dillon said.

But that doesn't stop the data collection.

There's also the possibility that legislation meant to give users more control over their data and privacy could end up benefiting a more established platform like Facebook and handicapping new services trying to build an audience and a business. Have you tried turning it off and turning it on again?

Zuckerberg replied, "When people ask us if we're a media company - or a publisher - my understanding of what the heart of what they're really getting at is, 'Do we feel responsibility for the content on our platform?' The answer to that, I think, is clearly yes".

Zuckerberg has been providing testimony this week to three congressional committees, addressing the manner in which Facebook's user data was improperly accessed by Cambridge Analytica. If Facebook stopped collecting this data, it would undermine its entire business model. That code can be embedded in browser files called "cookies", invisible screen pixels, or Facebook's familiar "like" and "share" buttons.

The sessions also featured presentations from Facebook's researchers on privacy challenges, as well as ways the company might protect user data.
