Facebook to attend Oireachtas committee over Cambridge Analytica breach

Here's how much Facebook spends on Mark Zuckerberg's security and travel Facebook to attend Oireachtas committee over Cambridge Analytica breach

Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg arrives to testify before a House Energy and Commerce hearing on Capitol Hill in Washington, on April 11, 2018, about the use of Facebook data to target American voters in the 2016 election and data privacy.

The blog was posted by Facebook product management director David Baser.

These services include Like and Share button, Facebook login details, Facebook Analytics and lastly the Facebook ads and measurement tools that enable websites and apps to show ads from Facebook advertisers. "There are three main ways in which Facebook uses the information we get from other websites and apps: providing our services to these sites or apps; improving safety and security on Facebook; and enhancing our products and services".

Whether it's information from apps and websites, or information you share with other people on Facebook, we want to put you in control - and be transparent about what information Facebook has and how it is used.

The ruling adds to the privacy woes that have been mounting against Facebook for weeks, since it was disclosed that the personal information of millions of users was harvested by the political consultancy Cambridge Analytica.

The Daily Press also asked readers in an online poll: "Are you concerned about the Facebook privacy issues and the affect it could be having on the USA electorate or information in general?" The government questioned Cambridge Analytica on whether it had been "engaged in any assignment to utilise data of Indians" pertaining to the recent breach, and also the entities that had used its services.

In June 2011, Facebook introduced a feature in certain countries - the United States being one of them - giving users the ability to automatically tag people in their photographs.

In other words, unless every site on the internet and all apps suddenly stopped using Facebook's services, there's no escape from the company, even if you go ahead and delete your Facebook account.

Bump stock maker to shut down web site, stop taking orders

Kacey Musgraves' "Golden Hour" dawns on "Saturday Night Live"
The long-running variety sketch series announced Amy Schumer and Tina Fey will be hosting the final two episodes of the season. First up is Amy Schumer , who is set to return for her second hosting stint on May 12 with musical guest Kacey Musgraves .

To understand more about how this happens, it helps to know how most websites and apps work.

Many companies offer these types of services and, like Facebook, they also get information from the apps and sites that use them.

The Indian government had questioned both the companies on the impact of the data breach, following which Facebook had admitted that almost 5.62 lakh people in India were "potentially affected" by the incident.

But the data Facebook has on people who are not signed up to the social media giant also came under scrutiny. Your browser (Chrome, Safari or Firefox) shares your IP address so the website knows where to send the site content.

Baser said the team collects information on individuals for their own benefit.

So this is the bad news: While Facebook might offer an option to pay instead of having targeted ads shown, it's also likely that people purchasing such an option will have their personal information collected anyway.

The latest submission made by Kaiser before the parliamentary panel comes several days after Facebook's Chief Technology Officer, Mike Schroepfer, wrote in a blogpost earlier this month that as many as 87 million users may have had their data taken, higher than the previous estimate of 50 million.
