Zuckerberg leveraged Facebook data to help friends

As part of these plans, Zuckerberg once considered 100 deals with app developers to figure out the "real market value" of Facebook users' data and "setting a public rate" for selling it to developers. Facebook states the posts were deleted a couple of years ago and the work needed to restore them had been extensive and might not have workedout.

Facebook paid its CEO an additional $13 million for his personal security and travel costs in 2018, according to a proxy filing on Friday.

Facebook shouldn't charge developers for access to basic data feeds, Zuckerberg wrote to software engineers in 2012.

The company also approved a "pre-tax allowance of $10 million to Mr. Zuckerberg to cover additional costs related to his and his family's personal security". The company has made multiple attempts to convince the public it's changed, including the creation of a series of pop-ups to explain Facebook's privacy practices.

Hastings' departure comes as the Menlo Park-based company beefs up its push into videos.

Facebook will nominate Peggy Alford for election to their board, which would make her the first African-American woman to hold that position.

Investors controlling roughly $3 billion of Facebook's stock support the measure but it still has little probability of gaining ground.

Facebook officials said the documents were cherry-picked from a court case involving a little-known start-up, writing, "The sets of documents, by design, tell only one side of the story and omit important context".

Zuckerberg owns roughly 75 percent of the class B stock and the chances of him being ousted are slim.

Zuckerberg draws a $1 annual salary from the company but receives other types of compensation-namely, the millions of dollars the company spends keeping him safe. Many shareholders revealed a lot of stuff against Zuckerberg.

The shareholders exposed the fact that Zuckerberg manages nearly sixty percent (60%) of the voting shares.

Facebook has also called for its investors to strike down that proposal.

The company boasts it can "find your voters and move them to action" through data-driven campaigns and a team that includes data scientists and behavioural psychologists.

In some occasions, Facebook would recompense chosen companies by providing them outflow to the data of its users. But the facts are clear: "we've never sold people's data".

Instagram's success in the face of Facebook's declining user growth was one source of friction, Wired said, with some executives believing that Instagram was cannibalising Facebook's native app.

This information is said to have been used to help the Brexit campaign in the UK.
