Too little too late? Facebook tweaks its Privacy Settings, adds 'Access Your Information' page
Facebook has been enduring a crisis of trust since it was revealed that Cambridge Analytica, a data firm with ties to President Donald Trump's2016 election campaign, reportedly accessed information from about 50 million Facebook users without their knowledge. After surging to a 52-week high of $195 in January, shares have retreated to levels where they traded last July. "We've heard loud and clear that privacy settings and other important tools are too hard to find, and that we must do more to keep people informed".
To comply with this, Facebook is adding a section called "access your information", a secure way for users to manage data they've shared with the company, including status updates, comments and things they have searched for.
The Privacy Shortcuts menu will allow users to control their data in a few taps, including by letting them add more protection to their account, like two-factor authentication.
Of course, now that we have the tools to easily delete old posts and information, the big question is whether or not that information is truly deleted from Facebook's servers or merely just hidden from sight. New changes for privacy and data won't be available immediately, but it will be released in the coming weeks, according to Facebook. Facebook, as you might expect, doesn't actually cover that in today's announcement, so if you're wondering if Facebook holds onto your information even after you've deleted it, it's probably safe to assume it does.
"The recent news about Facebook´s alleged mismanagement of users´ data has solidified our decision to suspend our activity on the platform at this time", saida statement from Playboy.
'These updates are about transparency - not about gaining new rights to collect, use, or share data'. Facebook also will clarify what types of apps people are now using and what permissions those apps have to gather their information.
Facebook is introducing new privacy features.
Facebook knew that Cambridge Analytica was in possession of millions of user profiles as far back as 2015, but did not let users know until Christopher Wylie blew the whistle in March 2018.
Finally, expect some changes to Facebook's terms of service and data policy in the near future.
