Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg releases statement on data breach

Cambridge Analytica has agreed to a digital forensic audit of its servers and systems in an attempt to show that it deleted certain Facebook data it held on some American users Facebook said in a blog post on Monday

His plans did not represent a big reduction of advertisers's ability to use Facebook data, which is the company's lifeblood.

Facebook suspended the Cambridge academic last week for sharing data he gathered separately and passed on to data firm Cambridge Analytica, which is not linked with the university.

Facebook is also an anti-friend because you can not count on the company to keep its word.

Here's what Zuckerberg said Facebook will do: First, it will investigate all apps that had access to "large amounts of information" before Facebook changed its platform to reduce data access in 2014. "We appreciate the efforts Facebook and its employees have already made to assist our committee and will work with them to find a suitable date for Mr. Zuckerberg to testify in the coming weeks".

Fear and speculation snowballed and somewhere in the mix, Cambridge Analytica went from being a cleverly-marketed data analysis company to a digital Svengali capable of masterminding election outcomes in the United States and overseas.

Only 300,000 Facebook users responded to Kogan's quiz, but that gave the researcher access to those people's Facebook friends as well, who had not agreed to share information, producing details on 50 million users. Ditto if you log into an outside app or site using your Facebook account.

British regulators on Friday began searching the London offices of Cambridge Analytica (CA), the scandal-hit communications firm at the heart of the Facebook data scandal, shortly after a judge approved a search warrant. You can control which app has access and what type of information they can have access to.

"We just put information into the bloodstream to the internet, and then watch it grow, give it a little push every now and again over time to watch it take shape", he said.

Most recently, when Facebook was summoned to Capitol Hill to explain how Russian sources used the social network to try and influence public opinion ahead of the 2016 presidential campaign, Facebook sent its top lawyer to the hearing, not Zuckerberg.

Reps. Greg Walden of OR and Frank Pallone of New Jersey said in a brief statement that the "latest revelations regarding Facebook's use and security of user data raise many serious consumer protection concerns". "Moving forward, if we remove an app for misusing data, we will tell everyone who used it", Facebook said.

Speaking to Channel 4 news, she said: "We need to get in there". Zuckerberg issued a warning to developers of apps that don't comply with an audit. In the final option under privacy, you can opt out of allowing search engines outside of Facebook to link to your profile. Lawsuits from shareholders and Facebook users have also been filed.

He further told the Times that a "meaningful" people had not deleted their accounts in the wake of the controversy: "I don't think we've seen a meaningful number of people act on that, but, you know, it's not good". That disagreement makes it hard to believe that openness and transparency are core values of the company.

"They were telling me what they had to sell was more advanced than anything I had ever seen before", GOP strategist Mike Murphy told The Los Angeles Times.

Second, and more important, you have to know the future will get very odd.
