Mark Zuckerberg and how to get away without really saying sorry

Zuckerberg testifies before a Senate Judiciary and Commerce Committees joint hearing regarding the companys use and protection of user data on Capitol Hill in Washington

He said he was among the almost 87 million people whose personal information was improperly shared with political consultancy Cambridge Analytica.

Yet there had been nothing on my newsfeed or notifications to suggest I was one of them. The data obtained by Kogan was then sold to Cambridge Analytic.

Besides, Vaidhyanathan said, he pays ISPs, cable companies and newspapers "hundreds of dollars a month", and "they grab as much data as they can".

"Zuckerberg's testimony demonstrated that the company has matured over the last decade, in particular in his acknowledgement that Facebook is responsible for the content shared on its platform", said University of DE communications professor Dannagal Young.

But if you haven't seen anything on your newsfeed yet, you might not be in the clear.

And yet it has been said that Facebook is the modern day equivalent of a religion and there is something in that. He cited examples of ads showing up on Facebook relating to conversations they had just had.

Your public profile, Page likes, birthday and current city.

Mark Zuckerberg's congressional testimony could have a big effect on the tech leaders of tomorrow.

In both hearings before the Senate, Zuckerberg only mentioned two kinds of data: the information that people decide to share on the platform, and the data that is automatically collected about people's behavior. That goes for fake news, foreign interference in elections and hate speech, as well as developers and data privacy, he said.

"Senator, no I would probably not choose to do that publicly here".

In the fourth quarter of previous year it had 2.2 billion active users - more than a quarter of the world's population.

During hearings on Capitol Hill Tuesday and Wednesday, Sen.

Sanda said the incident was not a "hack" or "data breach".

"The Internet is growing in importance around the world in people's lives, and I think that it is inevitable that there will need to be some regulation", he said. The government is waiting for Cambridge Analytica to respond to a similar notice before responding.

"How can consumers have control over their data when Facebook does not have control over the data?" asked Representative Frank Pallone of New Jersey, the ranking Democrat on the House Energy and Commerce Committee, at the beginning of Wednesday's hearing.

The New Zealand Privacy Commissioner John Edwards refers to the incident as "the Cambridge Analytica data breach".

Facebook tracks "certain information for ads and security".

These "skinny" mainframes-which are take up 40 percent less space than typical mainframes-also will expand the reach of IBM's stalwart systems to an "even broader center of clients seeking robust security with pervasive encryption, machine learning, cloud capabilities and powerful analytics", Ross Mauri, general manager of IBM Z, said in a statement.

Courtesy of Facebook, I am in touch with people I last saw decades ago during my American childhood.

Though the Cambridge Analytica scandal is still making headlines, it's not the only app that harvested data between 2008 and 2014. It has even officially said that it had granted Kogan permission to access the information.

If it's even possible to tot up how many buttons are out there on the web, expect a number in the hundreds of millions - that's hundreds of millions of pages with which Facebook is tracking your activity beyond its own borders.

But in following the advice, "don't invest in companies you wouldn't want to run", I'm selling my Facebook stock.
