Survey claims that 9% of Facebook users have deleted their accounts

Zuckerberg has told lawmakers that Facebook is still investigating what happened in the past with data breaches, and will continue to inform users of their rights and what tools are available to them. "So far, we've done nothing on Facebook".

Update - Shortly after this story was published indicating that Facebook had not contacted Diamond & Silk, they tweeted an update that Facebook has now contacted them, the day after Zuckerberg's second hearing.

In response the social network boss said: "Yes, there will always be a version of Facebook that is free".

"When it comes to the stuff that prompted this discussion, the Cambridge Analytical aggregate IQ stuff, I do think we need regulation but I don't think it's directed at Facebook, I think it's directed at political parties and their operatives who are, at least in Canada, outside the scope of any privacy regulation". Marc Andreessen, the venture capitalist and a Facebook board member, doesn't tweet anymore, but he "likes" hundreds of tweets a week, a group that recently included a string that mocked the public's fear that new media forms can be turned into "weapons of total mind control".

Mets' d'Arnaud to undergo season-ending Tommy John surgery
Tomas Nido , recalled from Double-A Birmingham on Wednesday, figures to take over as the primary catcher in the interim. The Mets, however, said a follow-up MRI at the Hospital for Special Surgery in NY on Thursday revealed the fracture.

Speaking during the TED 2018 conference in Vancouver, Jaron Lanier, a New York-based computer scientist said: "What started out as advertising really can't be called advertising anymore".

Zuckerberg: Congressman, I'm not, I'm not familiar with that.

It's been another tough week for Facebook with its founder, Mark Zuckerberg, being quizzed in front of Congress. "You need freedom from surveillance to do that".

But even in this hesitant camp, lawmakers showed a willingness to do just that. "The message they received last week was inaccurate and not reflective of the way we communicate with our community and the people who run Pages on our platform", the statement read. John Thune, the Republican chairman of Senate Commerce, told Zuckerberg.

Russian Federation asks United States to solve problems at 'negotiating table'
The Russian defence ministry and the Kremlin have yet to make any comment on the strikes announced by US President Donald Trump. Any U.S. strike would probably involve the navy, given the risk to aircraft from Russian and Syrian air defences.

"Legislation in this Congress at this time is hard, but Zuckerberg's appearance certainly increased its probability", says Roslyn Layton, a visiting scholar at the American Enterprise Institute who served on President Trump's transition team for the Federal Communications Commission.

The devil is in the details.

With profiling questions coming to the fore lately, Fraser took the opportunity a couple of weeks ago to download his Facebook data. The site has been repeatedly struck with negative headlines over the past month, beginning with revelations about how it provided third-party apps with user data and allegations that such data was used to manipulate the 2016 U.S. presidential election. Zuckerberg came prepared with a data point about how most people use eight different apps to keep in touch with friends and family - a number that may include email and text messaging, which aren't direct competitors of Facebook. But part of the problem with online privacy is most people don't know when it matters, she said. Facebook recently moved to label all political and issues ads.

The 33-year-old Zuckerberg frequently argued, for example, that Facebook's 2 billion users - not the company - own the data they share via its network, and can decide whenever they wish to prevent Facebook from having it.

Jersey Day in honour of the Humboldt Broncos
Some of that support surfaced on Thursday in the form of Jersey Day at McAllister's school and at others across Cape Breton. Some students also organized Humboldt tributes in the form of banners, bake sales, hockey sticks and green ribbons.

To get there, many Congressmen and Congresswomen have some studying to do.
