Facebook responds to how it collects data when you are logged out

Facebook revamps 'Bookmarks' section to easily access settings

In return for that information, Facebook helps those websites serve up relevant ads or receive analytics that help them understand how people use their services.

The Facebook blogpost comes as the company faces a class action lawsuit in California over its decision to launch a facial recognition feature for US users in 2011.

Facebook shares closed 0.19% higher at $164.83, Monday.

Zuckerberg, for instance, said the collection was done for security purposes, without explaining further or saying whether it was also used for measurement or analytics, Gillmor said, adding that Facebook had a business incentive to use the non-user data to target ads.

CEO Mark Zuckerberg vowed to revamp Facebook and had said the company would ensure that its platform is not misused to influence elections in India and elsewhere.

The company argued each individual user could be "aggrieved" differently, and must prove that they suffered an actual injury beyond a privacy right.

During questioning, it was revealed by Zuckerberg that Facebook doesn't just track the data and usage of its registered users.

Romaine lettuce fingered as source of E
Health officials are investigating a Panera Bread in Phillipsburg, New Jersey after a cluster of E. coli illnesses were reported. And the CDC adds that restaurants should avoid buying and serving romaine lettuce from the Yuma, Arizona region.

In a statement BusinessDay received, Facebook said the disclosure is to encourage people to manage the apps they use.

Baser also admits that Facebook collects other crucial details also such as your system's IP address, the software that your computer uses, the type of browser you use to access the internet, and more. "Furthermore, it is important for us to tell people if and how their data may have been accessed via This is Your Digital Life". Facebook allows its users to adjust their News Feed and ad preferences for a more secure and personal experience. Users in the United States accounted for over 70 million (about 97 percent) of the data breach while 16 million of the total number of users affected came from countries outside the United States. Even at their personal home or during personal travel, paying those expenses is often seen as a precautionary measure that outweighs the costs for the safety of such a key figure, said Jim Barrall, a senior fellow at UCLA's School of Law and former head of the executive compensation practice at Latham & Watkins.

For now, Messenger users in Europe are beginning to receive a message that reads, "Please review your data settings by 25 May to continue using Messenger". Following that link, users will be directed to a section where they can see which apps and websites they have used Facebook to log into, and remove any they no longer want connected to their account.

In Kenya, NASA leader Raila Odinga, who lost to President Uhuru Kenyatta has vowed to sue Cambridge Analytica and Facebook for running "devilish" propaganda against him during the last general elections. Sites that use Facebook advertising or analytics tools also share data.

The fact that Mark Zuckerberg takes just a dollar as his salary to work for Facebook, the social media platform he co created, does not mean that $1 is the what all he takes home.

Facebook said that personal information of as many as 87 million people, a lot of them from the USA may have been improperly shared with Cambridge Analytica.
