  • Cambridge Analytica: did Facebook share your personal data?

U.S. tech firms are going through a moment of reckoning in the wake of Facebook chief executive Mark Zuckerberg's grilling by USA lawmakers on the social network's privacy and data practices, according to industry experts.

Stressing that social media use was now at a crossroads, the digital marketing consultant said he would support any new regulation since it was "a lot more about transparency".

There are an estimated 180,000 Facebook account holders in Barbados, which include both individuals and businesses. But Facebook's business model, as Zuckerberg repeatedly explained in his testimony, depends upon ads shown to people based on the interests they share on the network.

"I would not assume that it is private that it's not being collected and tracked by Facebook - it is", she said.

The CEO of Facebook Mark Zuckerberg vowed to revamp Facebook and had said the company would ensure that its platform is not misused to influence elections in India and elsewhere.

"Users provide every detail of their life to Facebook and".

Kim Cruz Flynn, on The Sun Chronicle's Facebook page, downplayed concerns saying people know what they are getting into when they go on the internet. "I think that clearly what's going on with Facebook is a wake-up call, and something like this was bound to happen, but Facebook as an entity is so integrated into the travel agent mindset that it's going to stick around. They just got caught", said Eric Cole, chief executive of Secure Anchor Consulting, a cybersecurity consulting firm in Ashburn, Virginia that serves enterprise companies. Facebook said it uses browsing data to create analytics reports, including about traffic to a site.

Cuckoo's Nest Director Milos Forman Dead at 86
Forman was married to actresses Jana Brejchova and Vera Kresadlova, having twin boys with the latter. Forman returned to top form three years later, however, when he released " Amadeus ".

David Vladeck, a Georgetown University law professor who headed the FTC's bureau of consumer protection when Facebook signed the deal, said in a blog post this month that Facebook's argument that it didn't violate the deal is are "far-fetched".

Zuckerberg also didn't rule out the possibility that Facebook might eventually offer a version giving people the option of paying a monthly fee in exchange for not having their personal information mined for advertising.

The apology from Zuckerberg reads "This was a breach of trust and I'm sorry we didn't do more at the time". "The limits of your right to privacy and how much you give away in modern America in the name of 'connecting people around the world'".

In Ogg's mind, the recent news about Facebook presents agents with an opportunity to start looking at other social media platforms.

"Congresswoman, I don't remember if we had a financial penalty", Zuckerberg said under questioning by Colorado Rep. Diana DeGette. "You know how many points of data that Facebook has on the average non-Facebook-user?" "I promise to do better for you".

One of the tensest moments of the hearing came on Wednesday, when Frank Pallone, R-N.J., asked Zuckerberg for a yes-or-no answer on data collection - and did not receive the answer he asked for. If the user decides to protect that information, it is more of a case-by-case process. And when we find them, we will ban them and tell everyone affected. This can including basic info such as a user's profile picture and email address, or more invasive data such as relationship status or a list of friends. It calculated the maximum number of friends that users could have had while the personality quiz app built by Cambridge Analytica was collecting data. It has pointed out practices of companies like YouTube and Google, apart from Facebook, that are potentially harmful to children.
