Facebook enables update to make data settings, tools 'easier to find'

Facebook Facebook dat abreach Mark Zuckerberg FAcebook ads privacy

Facebook on Wednesday launched a fresh effort to quell the firestorm over the hijacking of personal data, unveiling new privacy tools and settings to give users more control over how their information is shared.

Wylie emerged as a primary figure in the Cambridge Analytica scandal last week after telling The New York Times and The Observer newspaper in the U.K. that the political consulting data company used personal information of as many as 50 million Facebook users without their knowledge via a third-party quiz app.

But Facebook have said that they hope the move will make it easier for users to navigate the confusing privacy and security settings.

Are you worried about your Facebook privacy seeing the recent happenings but find it difficult to access FB privacy tools? So let's say the person I bought the couch from has my number in their contacts, they log onto Facebook, they upload all their contacts, and then my phone number ends up in there or some old phone number or some old address.

The data leak has raised investor concerns that any failure by big tech companies to protect privacy could deter advertisers - Facebook's lifeblood - and lead to tougher regulation. The letter also asked "whether Facebook or its related or downstream agencies utilising Facebook's data have previously been engaged by any entities to manipulate the Indian electoral process?"

The thinking is that Facebook has less control over where and how these firms collect their data, which makes using it more of a risk.

Founder and CEO Mark Zuckerberg apologized in person for the scandal, and outlined a host of other steps the network would also take.

He said it will continue to restrict developers' access to user information, having come under fire from politicians on both sides of the Atlantic. Facebook is facing unprecedented scrutiny following reports that a data mining firm used ill-gotten data from tens of millions of its users to try to influence elections.

"Rather than going and deleting the account, just go an update it so it has a bunch of garbage in it and it doesn't have value in it anymore", said McCully.

In addition to revamping the settings menu on its mobile apps, Facebook has also introduced a 'Privacy Shortcuts' menu that provides "clearer explanations of how our controls work".

A fresh batch of privacy measures announced today are said to be 'in addition' to those announced last week.

Wood: In your article you say, for example, a one-night stand from 2008 or a person you got the couch from on Craigslist.
