  • FIXING’ FB Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg has been requested by a U.K. parliamentary committee to answer questions on fake news in the investigation into Cambridge Analytica’s alleged improper use of Facebook information

Advertisers and third-party apps have flocked to the social media giant because of its vast user data, with Facebook generating profits of nearly $16 billion previous year.

News of Zuckerberg's secretive message deletion comes in the midst of widespread criticism for Facebook's role in political analytics firm Cambridge Analytica improperly accessing the private information of over 87 million users around the world.

"We're committed to getting this done in time for the critical months before the 2018 elections", he said.

The two laws require companies get affirmative opt-in permission from every user for every piece of data any company keeps or processes. It's all about cash money on this week's #GirlsWithGoals Listen in on your iPhone or Android now.

Many have found the revelation that Zuckerberg's old messages were deleted to be a breach of trust along the lines of the Cambridge Analytica debaucle that has plagued the company for weeks.

Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg is set to testify before Congress next week.

What also appears confirmed is the presence of a dual-camera setup at the back along with a dedicated fingerprint sensor. The LG G7 ThinQ will come in Aurora Black , Platinum Grey , Moroccan Blue , Moroccan Blue (Matte), and Raspberry Rose .


Facebook has been building a stricter ads policy ever since they identified Russian interference in the 2016 USA elections.

The company also said that it won't "unsend" or retract any more of Zuckerberg's messages until the feature is made available to the larger audience.

The data was collected after a Facebook app, called "This is Your Digital Life", included a personality quiz.

"They gave us assurances, and it wasn't until other people told us it wasn't true", Sandberg said. This may take some time.

Hearings are planned in the United States over the scandal and the European Union is considering what actions to take against the company. "We should have done this sooner - and we're sorry that we did not".

Asked if there are other breaches looming on the horizon, similar to this most recent one where tens of millions of users were affected, Sandberg said, "We're doing an investigation, we're going to do audits and yes, we think it's possible. The project could have raised new concerns about the massive amount of data Facebook collects about its users, and how this data can be used in ways users never expected".
