  • Facebook chief Zuckerberg faced a two-day grilling

Baser confirmed that Facebook collects data even when you are not logged into your Facebook account.

Facebook gets some data on non-users from people on its network, such as when a user uploads email addresses of friends. Not really. Any website that uses Facebook log in or sign up option, runs Facebook ads, has a Like button alongside its posts or uses Facebook analytics sends information about your browsing activity back to the social network.

Zuckerberg says Facebook "failed" to protect people's information following the use by Cambridge Analytica of data scraped from 87 million Facebook users to target political ads ahead of the 2016 U.S. presidential election. It said some respondents were particularly upset that the company had not informed them of the CA data breach in 2015. Meanwhile, 78 Facebook users in Nigeria installed the app on their phone.

While Facebook says it will not be applying the GDPR to the rest of the world just yet, CEO Mark Zuckerberg says the company does intend to expand privacy settings around the world. Alphabet's (goog) cloud-based Google Photos service uses similar technology and Google faces a lawsuit in Chicago like the one against Facebook in San Francisco federal court. "We are putting a link at the top of people's News Feeds to make sure that everyone sees it".

Red Sox and NJ's Rick Porcello drop Yankees
For the second straight night, the Red Sox had one of their standouts leave a game before the start of the second inning. Both benches and the bullpen joined in the scrum, and three players and a coach were eventually ejected.

Baser reiterated that Facebook does not sell people's data. "Furthermore, it is important for us to tell people if and how their data may have been accessed via This is Your Digital Life". Ben Lujan, a Democrat from New Mexico, asked Zuckerberg, "How many data points does Facebook have on each Facebook user?" Even at their personal home or during personal travel, paying those expenses is often seen as a precautionary measure that outweighs the costs for the safety of such a key figure, said Jim Barrall, a senior fellow at UCLA's School of Law and former head of the executive compensation practice at Latham & Watkins.

Many people don't realize that your Apps settings on Facebook can also affect your level of privacy.

In addition, Facebook has committed to inform ever user on the platform from 5pm on Monday, whether they are among the 87 million potential users whose data was shared with Cambridge Analytica.

Facebook Analytics provides developers information on how people are spending time on their websites and apps. The election commission will continue to work with Facebook for the Karnataka assembly poll.

Over the last couple of weeks, Facebook has been trying to fix its image and has been doing this by offering a number of explanations on how it collects and uses data.

Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg testifies before a joint Senate Judiciary and Commerce Committees hearing regarding the company's use and protection of user data, on Capitol Hill in Washington, April 10, 2018.

As mentioned, the new update will also let you play as those loveable (?) scamps the Ewoks in a new limited-time mode, Ewok Hunt . Moreover, it now allows players to purchase appearance-related items with Crystals and/or Credits.

The document, according to the Intercept, describes Facebook's ability to use its vast amount of personal data to identify individual users who are "at risk" of changing to competitors' products, and then target them with advertising at the moment they would be about to switch.
