Federal Trade Commission Audit Cleared Facebook's Privacy Policies In 2017

All of us helped create the data crisis

The app vacuumed up not just the data of the people who took it, but also - thanks to Facebook's loose restrictions - data from their friends, including details that they hadn't meant to share publicly.

"With massive changes to the way companies must handle data just weeks away, Facebook must recognise that as the world's biggest social network site it should lead the way as a responsible custodian of users" data.

Claims made by Christopher Wylie, the former employee, raised questions about how the company handled data on millions of American Facebook users and led to Facebook suspending Cambridge Analytica from its platform while it investigates. "It has now swung in the opposite direction due to a series of scandals around fake news, platform bias, foreign interference and privacy concerns, which have rightly been called the "annus horribilis" of the tech sector". The political interests of Africa's ruling class are well served by inadequacy in personal data regulation and ruthless negative social engineering, such as provided by Cambridge Analytica.

Shire Rejects $60 Billion Bid From Takeda
On Monday, Shire sold off its Oncology business to French pharmaceutical firm Servier SAS for USD2.4 billion. On Thursday, February 15 the stock of Shire plc (NASDAQ: SHPG ) has "Buy" rating given by Jefferies.

The exact number of quizzes may be moot, as CEO Mark Zuckerberg has already specified that all of Facebook's users should assume their data has been compromised by search vulnerabilities.

46% disagreed with the notion that Facebook "protects my personal information". "We will take whatever steps are required to see that this happens". Instead he offered only an insubstantial "I'm sorry".

After listening to Zuckerberg and noting the confusion at Facebook, I suggest that they hire consultants to come in and fix things.

OPCW 'enters Syria's Douma' to probe gas attack allegation
The prime minister said her decision to take part in strikes alongside the U.S. and France was in "Britain's best interest". It included a visit to the main hospital to which the victims of the alleged chemical attack where taken.

He went on to say it's not enough to give people control of their information.

Kaplan said Facebook would roll out a new "view ads" feature, created to make political advertising more transparent, in time for a regional election being held in the German state of Bavaria in October.

"We have to make sure developers they've given it to are protecting it, too", Zuckerberg said. Zuckerberg fielded 10 hours of questions over two days from almost 100 US lawmakers last week and emerged largely unscathed. It is apparent, after his testimony before Congress, that he doesn't even understand how Facebook works, much less the country. "Members should enact comprehensive privacy legislation to ensure that consumer rights are protected". Such a fine, if imposed, would only be a pinprick for Facebook, which recorded revenues of more than $40 billion a year ago. You can read her full written testimony here. "They must also take proactive steps, including auditing and facilitation independent research, to assess and protect against ad discrimination outside of these contexts".
