Facebook To Reward Users Who Report Bugs And Leaks

A Facebook spokesperson declined to comment on the reason for the significant increase in Zuckerberg's security-related expenses for 2017, saying in a statement that "Facebook's board of directors believes that this investment in Mark's personal security is entirely justified".

In the worst data leak in company history, Facebook initially reported that 50 million of its users' private information was used without consent by United Kingdom -based Cambridge Analytica for critical political voting in that country and the U.S. That means that these non-subscribers haven't a clue about what information Facebook has obtained about them.

"Facebook knew about this in 2013 and 2015, but you didn't turn the feature off until Wednesday of last week, " Representative Ben Ray Luján, Democrat of New Mexico, said at one point during the hearing. Zuckerberg did not respond.

Kate Losse, who worked as Zuckerberg's speechwriter and blog writer between 2009 and 2011, claimed in an article for Vox that the Facebook CEO would "raise his fist with a slight smile and say, 'Domination!' as a way of closing out our weekly Friday all-hands meeting".

The wholesale, planet-wide exploitation of personal data has dark implications, Tufekci said: "We could enter into a phase of "surveillance authoritarianism, ' where we don't face (George Orwell's) '1984" model, where there's open totalitarianism, where we're dragged off in the middle of the night".

"Facebook needs to reveal what it is doing with all of this information".

It may turn out that Zuckerberg has an executive vice president in charge of privacy compliance, and that the Facebook CEO relies on that person to manage that area and bring only the most important events to his attention.

For most users this would have come about if they had previously downloaded the "This is your digital life" app.

Instead, his and his staff's recent conversations with Facebook employees have been business as usual - little more than routine discussions about "pulling data" to better target ads, he said.

The applications that are run through Facebook may seem like harmless fun, but tens of thousands of apps are being investigated for data misuse, as reported by New Scientist.

Dating app Bumble has changed its login system to help its 30 million-plus users avoid Facebook.

The Guardian reports that Facebook since 2015 has spent almost Rs 100 crores on Zuckeberg's security including money spent on his travels overseas in private jets.

In the wake of the scandal, many have pointed out to the irony behind the privacy measures that Zuckerberg enjoys while his company tries to collect as much data as possible on Facebook users. Bumble also used the information on Facebook - including friends, photos and "likes" - to match its users with potential partners. If we want to regulate Facebook's privacy policy, it can begin with us while we wait for Congress and Facebook to make necessary changes. A Facebook spokesperson declined to provide additional information.

That's why it might not matter if Facebook can only get 4 percent, or 1 percent, or 0.1 percent of users to pay. Facebook said on Friday that it does not do so.

"You're directing people who don't even have a Facebook page to sign up for a page to reach their data, " Luján said.

"Every time new privacy settings are put in place, we'll find new ways to innovate, ' said the GOP consultant, who asked not to be named".
