Zuckerberg mocked over 'booster seat' at hearing

Zuckerberg mocked over 'booster seat' at hearing

"Yes or no", asked Sen.

Senator Klobuchar said. "Consumers have the right to know if their personal information is being sold and they have the right to easily see what data has already been sold or distributed". "We don't do that".

His admission that even the company's tech-savvy founder was unable to protect his own data underscored the problem Facebook has in persuading skeptical lawmakers that users can easily safeguard their own information and that further legislation governing Facebook is unnecessary.

The way things are going, it looks like Zuckerberg will have to dust himself off for a progressively harder time with the US Congress in the coming months. With the first hearing on Tuesday and the second on Wednesday, Zuckerberg confessed a variety of ways Facebook has misused user data. "We have to make sure people aren't using it to harm people or spread disinformation", Zuckerberg told the Senators. This seems to be an issue women are more concerned with: 49 percent of surveyed women and 31 percent of male panelists would like Facebook to do something about toxic content. Who cares about Zuckerberg's skin-care regimen when the future of data privacy on the Internet is in question? Even Zuckerberg said regulation of his industry is "inevitable". As of March 31, Mr Zuckerberg owned 401.5 million shares of Facebook stock, now worth US$6.6 billion (AU$8.5 billion).

Cherry doesn't agree with one-game suspension for Kings defenceman Doughty
The only noticeable absence was that of David Perron (and it's unclear whether or not he'll play in Game 2 on Friday). The NHL Department of Player Safety (DoPS) assessed that the head was the principal point of contact .

Over the two days, the value of Zuckerberg's stake in Facebook grew about $US3 billion ($NZ4 billion).

In response to questions as to why, Zuckerberg stated that its "collects data on people who have not signed up for Facebook for security purposes". It was shared without authorization to third-parties, including Cambridge Analytica, the controversial data firm that reportedly worked to develop techniques to influence voters.

As of January 2018, statistics aggregator Statista reports that Facebook serves roughly 214 million users in the US.

Plan II freshman Ross Trivisonno said though he was angered about the data leak, it would take much more for him to delete Facebook, a necessity on par with email or text for him.

Movement to support the Humboldt Broncos goes worldwide
The campaign has raised more than $9 million in five days and has become one of the largest GoFundMe campaigns in history. Brons was extremely proud to be part of the Broncos team, her family said.

In the archive is a variety of information that isn't surprising to find - when a user has logged into Facebook, their posts and messages.

Facebook is working to fix its broken reputation following the ongoing investigation related to the Cambridge Analytica scandal.

On Wednesday, top European Union data protection authorities banded together to signal their full support for the British probe.

Mark Zuckerberg was in the line of fire for over two days from almost 100 senators and emerged unscathed as he gave a commendable performance, clearly well coached, helped him outperform expectations which were admittedly low.

Google's upcoming Gmail re-design will include a confidential mode
Earlier today, Google emailed G Suite customers letting them know a new version of Gmail is on the way. However, since recipients are still able to screenshot a message, it's not a guarantee of privacy.

Part of the reason we keep seeing data scares like this is that Facebook's lacklustre messaging around user rights and data policies have contributed to confusion, uncertainty and doubt among its users.
