The Gigantic Sum Facebook Pays For Mark Zuckerberg's Personal Security

The Gigantic Sum Facebook Pays For Mark Zuckerberg's Personal Security

While this does not personally identify individuals, it does provide user demographic data to the websites and Facebook as part of its analytics service.

Facebook CEO and Founder Mark Zuckerberg found himself in the hot seat for about 10 hours on Wednesday, Apr. 11.

According to Baser, all websites and applications that use its tools have to get user permission to share personal user information.

In addition, Facebook has committed to inform ever user on the platform from 5pm on Monday, whether they are among the 87 million potential users whose data was shared with Cambridge Analytica.

This, Facebook said, will help curb the spread of "financially motivated false news".

In Kenya, NASA leader Raila Odinga, who lost to President Uhuru Kenyatta has vowed to sue Cambridge Analytica and Facebook for running "devilish" propaganda against him during the last general elections.

Facebook is quick to note that when users sign up for an account, they must agree to the company's data policy.

In an update provided on its site, Facebook (NASDAQ:FB) is filling in some of the blanks left by CEO Mark Zuckerberg's testimony last week about what data the company collects when users aren't actively using Facebook.

Baser said that Facebook uses collected data for mainly three things-providing services like Facebook plugins, Facebook Analytics, and ads; keeping user's information secure; and improving services like keeping posts about things you care (cats, your favourite TV shows, political leanings, etc.) at the top of your news feed. With a goal of 50 million users within 5 years, Pegimane is already becoming the new buzz-word among travellers and adventurers alike.

This is one reason why it sometimes seems like Facebook ads are following you.

Facebook also covers security expenses for Sheryl Sandberg, the company's chief operating officer and a popular author and public speaker.

"Whether it's information from apps and websites, or information you share with other people on Facebook, we want to put you in control - and be transparent about what information Facebook has and how it is used", Baser wrote in conclusion. "Twitter, Pinterest and LinkedIn all have similar Like and Share buttons to help people share things on their services", he said.

The company has also refuted claims that it sells user's data despite the fact that it collects every single information about you as you surf the web. Their general concern, they said, is that many of Facebook's 2.1 billion users have no idea how much data Facebook could collect about them and how the company could use it.

With Facebook now under scrutiny by the US Senate, social network sites like Pegimane are setting themselves up with users' privacy in mind. "I've been working to understand exactly what happened and how to make sure this doesn't happen again".
