Facebook boss Mark Zuckerberg has revealed that his own personal data was sold to third parties during the Cambridge Analytica data scandal.

"Congressman, anyone can turn off and opt out of any data collection for ads, whether they use our services or not", Zuckerberg said.

The 33-year-old CEO said Facebook was in a constant struggle to guard against Russian manipulation of the Facebook platform to influence elections in the USA and elsewhere.

Zuckerberg testified in his first of two hearings on Tuesday, with a joint hearing of the Senate Judiciary and Commerce committees discussing how Facebook handles user data - and the Facebook CEO taking responsibility for company failures.

Besides, Vaidhyanathan said, he pays ISPs, cable companies and newspapers "hundreds of dollars a month", and "they grab as much data as they can". Cambridge Analytica's activities affected roughly 5.6 lakh users in India, after around 335 people in India downloaded an app called mydigitallife, and 87 million users worldwide, according to the tech giant. And youre directing people who dont have a Facebook page to sign up for Facebook in order to get their data.

Wedding bells for Sonam, Anand in April
Lamenting that she does not see a shift in attitude any time soon, she added, "We are hard pressed for stories, for roles". What is the song about? Interestingly, Sonam's parents Anil and Sunita Kapoor were in two minds about the wedding date.

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.

Responding to a question, he told lawmakers that he meant to initiate legal action against the firm accused of stealing personal data and using it for political purposes in the 2016 US Presidential elections. It resulted in Facebook asking non-users to sign-up for an account and therefore no data is available.

In response the social network boss said: "Yes, there will always be a version of Facebook that is free". As I have said, by the end this year, we are going to have more than 20,000 people working on security and content review across the company.

While none of these entrepreneurs' companies directly compete with Facebook, they all want that next big data idea because by 2025, the average internet user will connect with a device once every 18 seconds - upwards of eight times more per day than they do now.

Facebook has made secure browsing the default for all users. The US is famously wary of governments getting too involved in private business, and the nation has relatively loose laws when it comes to issues of data privacy.

Macron has 'proof', to decide on Syria air strikes
The West has accused Syria of attacking the town but Russian Federation insists the government of Bashar al-Assad did not do it. Syria and its ally Russian Federation have both denied involvement amid worldwide outrage over Saturday's incident.

The Facebook CEO has said before that his industry probably needs to be regulated.

Much of the effort was aimed at denigrating Democrat Hillary Clinton and thereby helping Republican Trump, or simply encouraging divisiveness and undercutting faith in the U.S. system.

"Yes, congresswoman, we run ads", Zuckerberg said. "We build planes to help connect people, and I don't consider ourselves to be an aerospace company", he said.

"But it's clear now that we didn't do enough to prevent these tools from being used as harm as well. That goes for fake news, foreign interference in elections, and hate speech, as well as developers and data privacy", Zuckerberg said.

While Zuckerberg said he couldn't comment on why the duo's content had been flagged, the pair have become a favorite among Trump and his supporters because they regularly take aim at the president's critics (by attacking things like the Black Lives Matter movement, the Obamas, and immigration reform), while endorsing his policies - even those that cause harm to communities of color. Castor asked. Zuckerberg said Facebook announced two weeks ago that it would no longer buy information from data brokers.
