Lewiston native Sandy Parakilas warned Facebook about privacy threats in 2012

Lewiston native Sandy Parakilas warned Facebook about privacy threats in 2012

Mark Zuckerberg defended Facebook's business model on Wednesday against fierce criticism of how it feeds user data to advertisers, even as he admitted his own personal information had been leaked to outside companies.

And just as everything was starting to look really gloomy, reports emerge that Zuckerberg has made $3 billion (£2.1bn) in the past two days. That problem stems from the company's unprecedented and largely unchallenged market reach. Facebook will be using AI technology to identify questionable activities and content posted.

The House hearing came a day after a five-hour questioning by United States senators, in which Mr Zuckerberg made no further promises to support new legislation or change how the social network does business.

Zuckerberg couldn't name a single competitor.

Facebook does say it expects its expenses to rise as it brings on more employees to deal with security issues and content moderation, and more costs will come with regulation in the USA, the prospect of which Zuckerberg has welcomed. However, this meant that the Facebook Events data would also include information about who else attended the event, as well as any posts shared on the event's wall.

In response to questions as to why, Zuckerberg stated that its "collects data on people who have not signed up for Facebook for security purposes".

How long will the Mark Zuckerberg testimony to Congress last today?
Zuckerberg added that Facebook's mission is to "help connect everyone around the world and to bring the world closer together". The scope of Facebook's data gathering operation was a cause of concern for a number of other lawmakers, as well.

Most people do not understand the scope of Facebook's data collection.

Kogan denied handing over the information to Cambridge Analytica for use on any of its campaigns.

"Facemash was a prank website that I launched in college - in my dorm room - before I started Facebook", he said. Facebook knows a fair amount about you. With tighter European regulation around privacy fast approaching, Facebook has been on the messaging warpath about its new data protection tools.

On Tuesday, senators also asked pointed questions about how Facebook will defend civil rights - by preventing housing discrimination in advertising, for instance - and whether the platform suppresses conservative speech, or might in the future. Seventeen percent deleted their Facebook app from their phone, 11% deleted from other devices, and 9% deleted their account altogether.

"One thing that seems to be clear from everything that has taken place is that not everybody is talking from the same script", he said. The political research firm harvested the personal information of roughly 87 million people to target American voters, using a personality quiz called "This Is Your Digital Life" that scraped the Facebook data of you and your friends.

"We have not seen wild changes in behavior", the Wall Street Journal quoted Everson as saying, "with people saying I'm not going to share any data with Facebook anymore".
