Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg
He told the Times that the company had deployed unspecified new artificial intelligence to fight bad actors in the recent Alabama Senate election: "In previous year, in 2017 with the special election in Alabama, we deployed some new A.I. tools to identify fake accounts and false news, and we found a significant number of Macedonian accounts that were trying to spread false news, and were able to eliminate those".
To audit your apps click the dropdown menu on the upper far right of your Facebookpage - then click settings.
Numerous announced changes will happen behind the scenes or in settings casual users don't visit often - or don't know exist.
To do some spring cleaning, you'll want to visit Facebook's App page under the Settings menu to see how many apps you have connected to your account. Facebook which is globally used and is it also the fifth world's most valuable brand, is now in a situation that a moment is started like #deletefacebook. It used social-media information to construct "psychographic" voter profiles, targeting users based on their personality traits. You'll have to contact the app individually and ask for your data to be removed.
The first thing you should know is that when it comes to sharing information online, that ship has mostly sailed.
Zuckerberg also emphasized steps the company has already taken, including reducing access outside apps had to user data in 2014.
Kogan, who gathered the data by running a survey app on Facebook, also said he was being made a scapegoat by Facebook and Cambridge Analytica.
Other steps to prevent potential future data breaches included turning off access for unused apps, restricting Facebook login data and encouraging users to manage the apps they use.
"I'm not sure we shouldn't be regulated", he told CNN. "So, this is gonna be an intensive process, but this is important".
Both Cambridge Analytica and Facebook deny any wrongdoing.
Over the weekend, Facebook was accused of helping British political propaganda company Cambridge Analytica obtain personal info on 50 million Facebook users. It's not clear if this is something users will have to proactively search for, as was the case with its tool to inform people who may have been exposed to content produced by the Russian troll army that exploited the platform, or if they will be notified.
"This is one part of a larger investigation by the ICO into the use of personal data and analytics by political campaigns, parties, social media companies and other commercial actors".
"What we try to do is send the person at Facebook who will have the most knowledge", Zuckerberg said.
"The latest revelations regarding Facebook's use and security of user data raises many serious consumer protection concerns", said in a joint statement Committee Chairman Greg Walden (R-OR) and Ranking Member Frank Pallone, Jr.
But you may be surprised how many apps like Airbnb or Venmo you've logged into through the social network over the years. Any restriction on collecting, storing or using that data could hurt Facebook's business. That core experience will stay the same for the time being.
Clicking "Logged in with Facebook" will show you a list of apps that you have granted permission to use your data.
