Facebook faces tough questions over Canadian data collection

Former Cambridge Analytica director Brittany Kaiser talks Facebook, data mining, and using social media profiling for political persuasion. Only 270,000 Facebook users downloaded Kogan's app, but he was able to gather data about many of those users' contacts.

The regulation will be in force from the 25 May and enshrined into United Kingdom law through the Data Protection Act 2018, and big companies will need to take their new responsibilities seriously. She only found out about the quizzes in 2015, thanks to an article in The Guardian. Several lawsuits have been filed against both companies since then.

Facebook has said it was suspending Canadian political consultancy AggregateIQ from its platform after reports the firm may have improperly had access to the personal data of Facebook users. It requests "monetary relief" paid to Taylor Picha and, as a proposed class action, to others similarly affected. Forty-four per cent disagreed with the statement "Facebook cares about privacy" while 46% disagreed with the notion that it "protects my personal information". Additionally, these resources must include hiring more people of color across all levels of the company - an initiative that would address Silicon Valley's failure to take real steps towards embracing diversity. In his congressional testimony last week, Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg appeared uninformed about key details of the agreement, saying he did not remember if it carried a financial penalty.

"We just experienced another slice of Facebook's salami tactics", said Thomas Jarzombek, the Christian Democrats' digital policy spokesman. Instead he offered only an insubstantial "I'm sorry".

Seeking to contain the fallout, Facebook has said it would only allow authorised advertisers to run electoral ads and that these should be clearly labelled.

He went on to say it's not enough to give people control of their information. The diplomat said that this issue is too important and advised Zuckerburg to accept the invitation.

But the ACLU argues that users don't have full control over their information.

EU Justice Commissioner Vera Jourova, who recently spoke to Facebook Chief Operating Officer Sheryl Sandberg, said Zuckerberg should heed the lawmakers' call.

The results suggest that some users don't feel like they have the power to act against tech giants such as Facebook. "Members should enact comprehensive privacy legislation to ensure that consumer rights are protected".

As a whole, Americans are more tolerant of hate speech than others in the world; however, this does not, and should not, permit Facebook to turn a blind eye to the copious amounts of hate speech the Black community, and other vulnerable communities experience on Facebook.
