Facebook's "unsend" message tool to go public


Facebook's "unsend" message tool to go public

People who'd communicated with Zuckerberg over Messenger found that their messages suddenly looked like entirely one-sided conversations - with no trace of Zuckerberg's correspondence left in their inboxes.

The two committees Zuckerberg will appear before next week were rich beneficiaries of the social media giant in the 2016 elections.

And earlier on Friday, Facebook said that it would make new retention rules around Messenger messages available to its users in the coming months. The Sony messages included disparaging remarks about movie stars and other people in the entertainment industry. We will now be making a broader delete message feature available.

Starting in the U.S., advertisers who wish to run political ads will need to confirm their identity and locations - this will expand to other countries in the months to come.

Zuckerberg on Wednesday said that most Facebook users should assume that their public information has been scraped in a call with reporters.

Every advertiser who wants to run an issue ad will need to confirm their identity and location, Zuckerberg wrote.

"Only good news", it reads. It also has a growing "Facebook health" team based in NY that is pitching pharmaceutical companies to invest its ample ad budget into Facebook by targeting users who "liked" a health advocacy page, or fits a certain demographic profile. The company did not specify what number of followers would trigger the requirement.

"The company said it plans to restrict data access of third parties on Facebook starting April 9". For example, would all traces of the deleted message disappear, allowing users to send abusive messages that they could simply "unsend" later?

The creators of 'Stranger Things' accused of plagiarizing show's concept
Kessler filed a lawsuit in Los Angeles Superior Court earlier this week and is seeking damages for "breach of implied contract". Stranger Things is available to stream on Netflix .

The hearing is "going to give us an opportunity to give the American people a clearer picture of how their private data malpractice took place and how Facebook is going to make it right", Markey said.

"If Facebook does start to monitor things, you'd have to generally welcome that", said Cora Sherlock, "but that comes with a strong caveat that any type of monitoring doesn't descend into censorship".

She says, "What we didn't do is the next step of an audit and we're trying to that now".

The firm will ask those placing political ads for a USA government-issued ID and a physical mailing address.

"With this in mind, a year ago Facebook began discussions with leading medical institutions, including the American College of Cardiology and the Stanford University School of Medicine, to explore whether scientific research using anonymized Facebook data could help the medical community advance our understanding in this area".

The EU justice commissioner Vera Jourova will hold phone talks with Facebook's chief operating officer Sheryl Sandberg to discuss what the company is doing to address the breach, which it says may have affected 87 million people around the world.

And adds that Facebook will stop deleting Mark Zuckerberg's messages until all users can do the same.
