Ousting Mark Zuckerberg from Facebook would be hard

HeraldScotland

Not very long after Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg faced Congress regarding Facebook's poor handling of users' data as a result of the Cambridge Analytica scandal, the company has now been accused of illicitly obtaining users' biometric information through the use of facial recognition technology. Once added, the code allows you to collect information on Facebook members visiting your website and the actions they take while on your site. "Many companies offer these types of services and, like Facebook, they also get information from the apps and sites that use them".

But he stressed the practice was widespread, with companies such as Google and Twitter also doing the same. Targeting travellers in South East Asia, one of the fastest-growing tourism destinations in the world, Pegimane is set to become South East Asia's answer to Facebook.

When you visit a site or app that uses our services, we receive information even if you're logged out or don't have a Facebook account. This happens for every site that you visit, or app that you use, which uses any of Facebook's services, from the more visible ones, to the ones that are running under the hood which most users will never know about.

Most of the political ads about divisive issues that ran on Facebook before the 2016 U.S. presidential election were sponsored by "suspicious groups" with no publicly available information about them, according to a study released yesterday and based on a database of five million ads on Facebook.

More than a decade ago, Internet users started realizing that most pay-per-click advertisements revolved around the cookies in your web browser's cache.

You know what you're signing up for. Zuckerberg acknowledged that Facebook put users' privacy at risk during the 2016 presidential campaign, but defended his company.

The option (which you can find by going to the lock icon in Facebook on your PC, then to Settings, then to Ads) says, 'Your Facebook ad preferences can be used to show you ads on apps and websites off of the Facebook Companies'.

Perplexed members of Congress suggesting Facebook change its business model to "fee-based" don't understand the advertising business and how many hundreds of millions of dollars and users they would lose. I merely wanted to make you aware that this ability existed so that you can begin taking advantage of this tool to improve the effectiveness of your Facebook marketing.

Most of this isn't new information, but it's part of Facebook's initiative to be more transparent with the government and its users about how the data it collects is shared.
