Facebook announces new disclosure rules for political issue ads

They'll also have to show who pays for the ads. "We did so in full compliance with our legal obligations to preserve messages". In nearly the next breath, however, Zuckerberg steered clear of endorsing a bill that would write such rules into federal law, and instead talked up Facebook's own voluntary efforts on that front.

"While this may not be a true security breach in the traditional sense, the fact remains that personal information was exploited and those people whose data was exploited had no control nor knowledge" of the use of data "by anyone other than Facebook", said Ken Spinner, VP of engineering at Varonis, in an interview with CIO Dive.

Facebook is introducing an "unsend" button in Messenger, after CEO Mark Zuckerberg and other Facebook execs received backlash for having their own messages retracted, according to Techcrunch.

Facebook said Cambridge Analytica accessed the data of as many as 87 million users.

It was encouraging to learn that Mark Zuckerberg has embraced the 'spirit' of the European Union's new law on data privacy but his intention falls flat when he has not committed to this type of privacy guarantee - that would deliver much-needed assurance - to users in the United States and across the globe.

He was referring to the Supreme Court's recent ruling on the SC/ST (Prevention of Atrocities) Act, which allegedly diluted the law.

In the meantime, Facebook said it's auditing records in an effort to find any other companies that may have taken advantage of its service. The company's business model operates on the assumption that people who buy the same items and have similar interests - "the same "data points" - likely have similar personalities.

Facebook has been playing fast and loose with its users' private data since it first launched a targeted advertising program.

Chris Wylie, a Cambridge co-founder who left in 2014, has said one of the firm's goals was to influence people's perceptions by injecting content, some misleading or false, all around them.

In February, U.S. Special Counsel Robert Mueller charged 13 Russians and three Russian companies with interfering in the election by sowing discord on social media. The company said Friday it is working with unnamed third parties to come up with a list of "key issues", and that it will update the list over time.

"To get verified, advertisers will need to confirm their identity and location".
