Facebook Messenger Will Soon Let You 'Unsend' Messages Just Like Mark Zuckerberg

Facebook Messenger Will Soon Let You 'Unsend' Messages Just Like Mark Zuckerberg

Facebook had said that executives' messages were deleted in the name of "corporate security", but now the social network has once again been forced to apologize to users.

All 2.2 billion Facebook users will receive a notice on their feeds titled "Protecting Your Information". And if you have downloaded an app that you don't use, Facebook will send you alerts and reminders.

We've reached out to AggregateIQ and Facebook, and will update if we hear back. Restricting access to user data could make targeted ads less effective.

The company's chief operating officer told NBC's "Today" show that Facebook is now undertaking that audit.

"As Tufekci explains, Zuckerberg's first Facebook apology came in 2006 with the launch of the News Feed, the introduction of which came with little advance warning: "'This was a big mistake on our part, and I'm sorry for it, ' he wrote on Facebook's blog. Hearings over the issue are scheduled in the USA, and the European Union is considering what actions to take against the company. Though some pieces of evidence/sources are there and as per their perspective AggregateIQ has used the data gathered by Cambridge Analytica during Britain's leave campaign.

Now Facebook's decision to suspend the Canadian firm from its platform appears to give further validation to Mr Wylie's claims. Now that Zuckerberg's secret is exposed, the social media giant is planning to appease users by rolling out an unsend feature to its platform.

Despite the doomsday scenario, the Defence Committee claimed the crack pot dictator was still rational and could be reasoned with. North Korea came dangerously close to war with the U.S. a year ago as Trump promised "fire and fury" in response to Kim.

Facebook has said the data was initially collected by a professor for academic purposes in line with its rules.

Civil society and rights groups in Myanmar say Facebook has failed to adequately act against online hate speech that incites violence against the country's Muslim minority. The company said, "After Sony Pictures' emails were hacked in 2014 we made a number of changes to protect our executives' communications".

Facebook said on Wednesday that the personal information of up to 87 million users, mostly in the United States, may have been improperly shared with political consultancy Cambridge Analytica, up from a previous news media estimate of more than 50 million.

As per a Facebook insider the firm has suspended the company called AggregateIQ because according to them this firm has misused the data of users and for more Facebook is still investigating the whole matter.

It says Facebook representatives in Indonesia could face up to 12 years in prison and a fine of $871,000, if convicted. The information was later transferred to third parties, including Cambridge Analytica, in violation of Facebook's policies.
