Ron Laughery: Don't just blame Facebook

Democrats and Republicans alike repeatedly cut off Zuckerberg, who appeared less composed than he did at the Tuesday hearing.

This conversation is relevant because Zuckerberg was asked twice by congress about Facebook potentially offering subscriptions.

An afternoon recap of the day's most important business news, delivered weekdays. It's certainly a wakeup call for Facebook.

The hands-off, market-driven policy that turbocharged the megacap internet companies' growth has clearly outlived its usefulness considering the recent developments involving Facebook. It would be hard for an antitrust action against Facebook to gain traction, especially in the USA where antitrust laws are created to protect consumers rather than competitors, as Facebook provides more and more services to its users for free. In its proxy, Facebook says it does "not consider Mr. Zuckerberg's overall security to be a perquisite for his benefit", but now discloses the costs as "all other" compensation in the company's proxy. Companies can also match their information on what your purchase in stores - that box of cereal at the supermarket, for example - and marry it with Facebook account information.

There are a few places to look for the stats you need: You can utilize Facebook Insights, Twitter Analytics, Google Analytics, or your blog stats. "This is essentially a tool for these malicious actors to steal a person's identity and put the finishing touches on it".

"And I'm sorry. I started Facebook, I run it, and I'm responsible for what happens here". I mean, Sen. Lindsey Graham of SC actually asked a compliant Zuckerberg to submit a list of government interferences he might embrace.

In a report from The Wall Street Journal (via Engadget), it seems that Facebook users for the most part haven't changed their privacy settings in any meaningful ways. People should log in to Facebook to find out what it's "capturing" about them, he said.

In response to questioning by U.S. Rep. Mike Doyle, D-Pa., Zuckerberg acknowledged: "I'm not familiar with all of the things the FTC said".

The announcement comes after Facebook placed adverts in U.S. and United Kingdom newspapers apologising for losing control of the data.

While I have said "beware" there is still plenty to think about.

Concern about Facebook Inc's (FB.O) respect for data privacy is widening to include the information it collects about non-users, after Chief Executive Mark Zuckerberg said the world's largest social network tracks people whether they have accounts or not.

In his testimony, Zuckerberg said AI tools were increasingly adept at "identifying fake accounts that may be trying to interfere in elections or spread misinformation".

According to Facebook, this program will reward those with first-hand knowledge and proof of cases where a Facebook platform app collects and transfers user data to another party to be sold, stolen, or used for scams or political influence.

Mr. Zuckerberg, who has famously avoided being questioned in public about Facebook's activities and mechanisms for most of the social-media site's 14-year existence, agreed to sit before the joint Senate committee hearing after controversy surrounding the unauthorized "scraping" of users' information by the data-mining firm Cambridge Analytica was exposed by former staffer turned whistleblower Christopher Wylie.

Facebook's founder, Mark Zuckerberg, said that all affected users would receive a message through their news feeds letting them know about the use of their data. The scandal erupted a month with headlines detailing how a data data business, Cambridge Analytica, was able to crop information about 87 million people.
