Facebook Stops Lobbying Against Cali Consumer Privacy Act

Facebook Stops Lobbying Against Cali Consumer Privacy Act

Everson's comments reiterate similar comments Zuckerberg made during his testimonies in which he said that Facebook hasn't noticed a significant drop in Facebook users nor a decline in current user activity on the social network.

"A version" - meaning another version might not be free.

The 9% figure seems impossibly high as it would mean that of Facebook's estimated 214 million users in the United States, 19.2 million deleted their account over the past few weeks alone.

Rep. Joe Barton (R., Texas) told Zuckerberg, "You can pretty well set up your Facebook account to be nearly totally private, but you have to really work at it". One metric that has recently come into favor is called enterprise value per monthly active user, a measurement of the company's value based on how frequently users log into a company's app. Let's do some rough math. Say you're a company that makes camping tents, you can go to Facebook and say 'hey, we're a tenting-camp company in Nova Scotia, here's our ad and we want you to show this ad to men and women between 20 and 35 who have gone to a national park, for example.

Post-scandal, as Zuckerberg finally surfaced for interviews, he was still talking about being 'too idealistic on the side of data portability.' An interesting choice of words, in the face of revelations around how that feature (not bug) may well have been used to spread propaganda, and even throw elections worldwide.

Facebook reported 2.13 billion monthly active users at the end of a year ago. But what did Facebook do to prepare me as a new 2018 user?

As a Facebook member since 2007 and a journalist covering tech and media, I know how to look for these settings and update them. If you choose to share your entire life with a platform that bundles you up as a product to offer to advertisers and analytics firms, you are essentially handing yourself over to the whims of companies who have proven time and time again their own inability to keep data secure.

Selling them is the heart of the company's business model. Facebook chief Mark Zuckerberg apologized to USA lawmakers Tuesday for the leak of personal data on tens of millions of users as he faced a day of reckoning before a Congress mulling regulation of the global social media giant.In his first-ever U.S. congressional appearance, the Facebook founder and chief executive sought to quell the storm over privacy and security lapses at the social network that have angered lawmakers and Facebook's two billion users.

Since the Cambridge Analytica scandal broke, Facebook has been under intense scrutiny and pieces of information about data policies continue to spring up almost every day, reports COMPLEX. The fact that Facebook's ad targeting is, at times, so accurate that people assume the company must be spying on them is a great endorsement of Facebook ads.

It's thought this would allow people to use the popular service without seeing adverts or worrying who might be gaining access to their personal data.

Why do people use Facebook? Skiing is an expensive hobby.

But Facebook's dropping out is a small victory for consumer groups in the lead-up to this year's ballot measure. "If so, $18.75 is an underestimate - and possibly a large one".

Lujan: It's been admitted by Facebook that you do collect data points on non-[Facebook users]. My question is, can someone who does not have a Facebook account opt out of Facebook's involuntary data collection? "Yes, we filter and lie by omission on Facebook", said University of Wisconsin-Madison professor Catalina Toma.
