Forget Facebook, Focus On Data Use

Forget Facebook, Focus On Data Use

That's the argument being made by three IL plaintiffs on behalf of millions of Facebook users in San Francisco federal court, where U.S. District Judge James Donato, unsympathetic to the tech giant, ruled on Monday that the class-action lawsuit against the company could proceed.

Last month, Facebook announced a redesign of the entire settings menu on mobile devices from top to bottom to bring in controls that are easier to find and use. He says that Facebook doesn't sell this data and uses only it only to offer suitable content to you just like how other companies do. Facebook, which pushed for the cases to be considered individually instead of as a class-action lawsuit, is reviewing the ruling.

"We are beginning small and know it is important to learn from this test and listen to our community as we continue to update ways for people to understand what might be false news in their News Feed", it said. This possibility was not lost on Donato, who stated in his ruling that damages could "amount to billions of dollars".

Among some very key benefits Pegimane offers over other popular social networking sites, it is also very clear on how it protects its users' online data. Rather, Facebook and other social media mostly shifted more eyeballs and advertising revenue from electronic and print media to their platforms. The post also avoided completely the topic of the data that it doesn't give out in its "download all your data" feature - yes, there is some - which is still being closely guarded by the company even in Europe, where heavier privacy regulations are about to go into effect. 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.

These leaks confirmed the many fears most of us have on what Facebook actually does with the data it collects from users. The company gets this data from websites and apps that let people share or like posts using Facebook plugins, or log into the website with their Facebook accounts.

Keep your eye on the Arab summit
The Arab League was founded in 1945 to protect newly-won independence throughout the region. The summit begins on Sunday in the East coast city of Dammam.

Whenever you visit other websites, Facebook, either through its services on those websites or through the cookies (basically a form of code which tracks users' activities over the internet) stored on your browser, collects location, browser information including your past activities and operating system, among others.

This is one reason why it sometimes seems like Facebook ads are following you. "If I were on the board, I would want him protected 24/7". If they don't, we can show an ad encouraging them to sign up for Facebook. That way, users can once again be Facebook's customer, not its product.

But the big increase did come the same year Zuckerberg made it a goal to "have visited and met people in every state in the U.S.by the end of the year", the latest iteration of Zuckerberg's annual "personal challenges", which have included learning Mandarin or running a mile each day.

Trust in Facebook's data handling has dramatically collapsed following the Cambridge Analytica scandal.
