Survey claims that 9% of Facebook users have deleted their accounts

Diamond And Silk Complain That One of Their Private Facebook Posts is Not Getting Views

The site would suggest that my friends tag me in images.

It is very possible that Facebook dropping out of the fight could be the thing that tips the law over into approval: when Facebook withdrew its opposition to the FOSTA/SESTA law earlier this year - again, in response to fierce criticism from lawmakers - the law was passed, despite continued opposition from much of the internet industry.

The interesting question, however, is whether Facebook itself plans to make use of this, and here Mr Zuckerberg was less than entirely candid or open.

Facebook's success story spawned a generation of social startups that replicated its tactics for measuring user behavior, conducting user research, and mining data.

You might never join Facebook, but a zombie you - sewn together from scattered bits of your personal data - is still sitting there in sort-of-stasis on its servers waiting to be properly animated if you do sign up for the service. It's data that made Zuckerberg a billionaire.

The stakes are high for both Zuckerberg and his company. "I think that writing on the profiles of the dead is a attractive, new way to express feelings - to yourself, and to other friends and family of the person who died - that really is not the same as a note to the bereaved person, what people usually did to mark the moment", Turkle reflected.

During questioning by Rep. Michael Burgess (R., Texas), Zuckerberg added: "It's contextual. They're trustees and take care of our information online and from that flows certain regulatory expectations", Laidlaw said.

Yet, that's precisely what Facebook asks new users to do.

Analysts and investors keep close tabs on Facebook's user statistics as a way to gauge the company's financial health.

The problem is most people - politicians and public alike - are still in the dark as to how Facebook works.

Remember that all of these "connections" are known by Facebook and owned by Facebook. For instance, the permission settings are next to the "post" button when I'm ready to publish.

In the wake of the scandal, Facebook sent out automatic notifications to affected users.

After some fix work - limiting permissions to the bare minimum in most cases, deleting some apps or connections completely - I signed into my dad's more recent account to check the privacy landscape when someone who didn't pay any attention joined Facebook.

The social network is also tweaking the login process for third-party apps.

Vernal, who worked at Microsoft around the time that the company was involved in a major antitrust case in which chief executive Bill Gates also testified before Congress, said he agreed technology companies, including Facebook, need to be more cautious about the ways bad actors can attack their platforms.

Rep. Joe Barton (R., Texas) told Zuckerberg, "You can pretty well set up your Facebook account to be nearly totally private, but you have to really work at it".

The company also said it spent more than $1.5 million on private plane costs, up from $870,000 the year before. But the brief comment period for those updates ended April 12. Requiring new users to make privacy repairs that could be avoided at sign-up shouldn't be the default. The university was informed the content was too violent.
