How to tell if Facebook data was compromised by Cambridge Analytica

How to tell if Facebook data was compromised by Cambridge Analytica

Facebook shares jumped as Zuckerberg spoke to the senators, closing up 4.5% in New York trading. It will look for misuses of personal information and then alert users if it finds anything suspicious. "It was my mistake and I'm sorry", he said.

"Imagine if competition authorities forced Facebook to open its walled garden and allow third-party apps to interoperate without all the invasive properties of the Facebook app", Hoofnagle said. "When customers don't trust the source, they're probably not going to trust the content".

Yesterday, Facebook announced that users of the social media platform will finally be notified whether or not their personal data was shared with the controversy-embroiled political research firm Cambridge Analytica. You can check if you were affected by clicking this link.

That article argued that Cambridge Analytica was behind both Donald Trump's online election campaign and the successful Brexit campaign. Because they may have little comprehension of how Facebook and its competitors (if they can name a few) work, but they have a firm grasp of the effects.

Following Mark Zuckerberg's testimony on Capitol Hill, one wonders: Is Facebook trying to usurp the "too big to fail" designation for itself? People, she said, have to feel bad for you, and "that entails recognizing that you realize the severity of the damage".

The 33-year-old CEO is not a natural speaker, and he stuck closely to talking points with a somewhat robotic delivery.

"America deserves a privacy bill of rights that puts consumers, not corporations, in control of their personal, sensitive information", said Markey.

The embattled executive isn't out of the hotseat just yet.

Body language expert Patti Wood countered that Zuckerberg showed some signs of anxiety and anger throughout the grilling, particularly in how he set his mouth and looked down at his notes.

During Tuesday's questioning, Zuckerberg also disclosed his company was "working with" special counsel Robert Mueller in the federal probe of Russian election interference. "Is that still your objective?"

In Europe, plans for a consumer-oriented regulatory scheme are underway, to be implemented next month.

For more than a decade, after all, Zuckerberg has issued a series of mea culpas, commitments to do better and promises to learn from Facebook's mistakes, often related to privacy or user data.

The industry that has always projected an image of endless youth is now being forced to acknowledge it can no longer function as a perpetual adolescent.

My "interests", in order, include the Book of Mormon (the real book, not the musical, which I loathed); National Public Radio (OK, grudgingly); "Baywatch" (yes!); and Erika Harold, a lawyer and a former Miss Illinois, unknown to me, who seems to be running for attorney general in Illinois.

SELYUKH: It was a lot less fanfare but a lot more knowledgeable, concise focused questions, a more hostile environment, I would say, for Zuckerberg.

An email to a Facebook spokesperson earlier this week was not returned. "Do it three times and it's time for a divorce". Representative Joe Barton, a Texas Republican, pulled out his phone and read a constituent's question about Facebook silencing conservative commentators known as Diamond & Silk. "Offering to provide additional support offline shows that you are committed to seeing this through, and it's not just going to be a one-off where you're being cross-examined and then you're going to disappear and go back to whatever you were doing", Cohen said.
