Facebook should support privacy protections

  • LOGGING OFF Shane O'Brien is not prepared to put up with the misuse of his information

Mr Zuckerberg said he's willing to fix the problems in Facebook, even if that requires a substantial investment, and he acknowledged it is "inevitable that there will need to be some regulation".

The compensation costs include the security provided at Zuckerberg's home and during travel and the expense incurred from his private air travel.

Facebook said in a statement that the security measures were quite important due to Zuckerberg's position within the company.

"I've been covering consumer attitudes and behaviours for a long time, and I don't see consumers changing their behaviour very often", said Fatemeh Khatibloo, an analyst at Forrester Research. The incident wiped off billions from Zuckerberg's wealth while Facebook's stock prices slumped in a week. While Facebook supplied the user data, firms like like Acxiom and Experian collected data from a slew of outside sources like voter rolls, credit-score data, loyalty cards, property records and consumer surveys.

Privacy concerns have swamped Facebook since it acknowledged last month that information about millions of users wrongly ended up in the hands of political consultancy Cambridge Analytica, a firm that has counted U.S. President Donald Trump's 2016 electoral campaign among its clients. The former head of the UN's global telecommunications regulator has said governments should "regard the internet as basic infrastructure - just like roads, waste and water". As was seeing co-workers deep-dive to discover whether their Facebook lives have been shared with Cambridge Analytica or other dementors buried within the recesses of the internet - in yet another reminder of how it's always the hidden dangers that feed on our pursuit of happiness.

"If, for example, a Swiss Facebook user spreads illegal propaganda through the network, that may be punishable in Switzerland, but not so in the United States due to a different legal framework", she told the SonntagsZeitung.

Two polls show Trump approval below 40%
The president said it's "hard to believe" he is at 50 percent in the Rasmussen poll , given all the "phony stories and Fake News". According to the poll, 34 percent of respondents strongly approve of Trump's performance, while 40 percent highly disapprove.

Not only that, but authorities executed a search warrant for a hair sample and blood sample from the woman, as well as the child. The Wakulla Sheriff's office didn't go into detail about the relationship between the two-year-old and Kaitlyn Ecker .


Sen. Richard Blumenthal, D-Conn., and other lawmakers tried to get Zuckerberg to change the rules of engagement between Facebook and its users. The users that populate its pages understand this fundamental bargain at some level, but, as with any relationship, there are limits and what worked while sharing photos with friends several years ago is maybe not the same as seeing news stories influenced, say, based on your facial expressions while facetiming your sick father. My profile is sparse, I rarely post anything on the site, and I seldom click on ads.

Over the past half-decade, Swiss authorities have sent 361 data requests to Facebook, mostly related to the tracking of potential terrorist activities. Facebook also faces inquiries in Europe.

This was unsettling. I had hoped Messenger would use my contacts list to find others who were also using the app so that I could connect with them easily - and hold on to the relevant contact information only for the people who were on Messenger. At the most basic level, one can imagine that algorithms are used to maximize user engagement. But the fact of the matter is, Facebook is not your friend or your babysitter. However, as users of Facebook, we understand our right to privacy.

That app was called Facebook Poke and ended up being a huge flop but since then Facebook's Instagram has gone out of its way to copy Snapchat's popular features in an effort to squeeze its rival. McNamee saw this in 2016 with both the Brexit referendum in the United Kingdom and the American Presidential election and concluded that Facebook does, indeed, give "asymmetric advantage" to negative messages.

But the questioning from members of Congress, most of whom are old enough to be the 33-year-old Zuckerberg's grandparents, was excruciating to watch.

Unfortunately, existing regulations aren't suited to deal with the privacy issues at stake and new regulations are only going to protect certain citizens in certain pockets of the world. In the end, despite Zuckerberg's protests, Facebook feels like it pretty much has the monopoly.
