Mark Zuckerberg will alert each Facebook user who had data exposed

Zuckerberg posted on his Facebook page Wednesday, March 21, 2018, that Facebook has a "responsibility" to protect its users' data.

The tech entrepreneur said the company has already taken important steps to prevent a repeat of the 2016 debacle.

Hours after releasing a statement on Facebook, Zuckerberg spoke to Wired editor-in-chief Nick Thompson about what he called "one of our biggest mistakes".

As lawmakers in the U.S. and United Kingdom have asked Zuckerberg to testify before Congress, the CEO said that he would be happy to do so.

Facebook's stock has plunged, costing the company millions of dollars, and more than 40,000 people have mentioned the #DeleteFacebook hashtag on Twitter on Tuesday.

Katarina Barley said it must be possible for users of social media sites to specify whether they are happy for their data to be used in certain ways, rather than just giving them the option to tick "yes" or not be able to use the service.

Zuckerberg wrote a blog post earlier outlining steps to make sure such a leak doesn't happen again.

Facebook will perform investigations on all apps that had access to user data before it removed developers' ability to harvest information from your friends' profiles. It will also conduct a full audit of any app with suspicious activity.

Another thing you may not know: People on Facebook who can see your information can bring it with them when they use apps such as games. It's convenient, but is also shares personal data with those third-party apps. Facebook will remove developers' access to your data if you haven't used their app for 3 months. Aleksandr Kogan, the data scientist who passed along data to SCL Group and its affiliate Cambridge Analytica, built a Facebook app that drew data from users and their friends in 2013. This tool will show up at the top of the News Feed. This isn't the first time Facebook lets down its users.

Facebook will also become more upfront about apps you are using to help you comprehend which data is being shared and to whom it is being shared. This was after Facebook started its relationship with Cambridge University Professor Aleksandr Kogan, whose decision to share data he collected from Facebook with Cambridge Analytica is now in the news. "When Facebook takes stronger action in how it shares customer data, specifically strengthening its default privacy settings for third-party apps, we'll consider returning".

What are Facebook's policies, practices, and procedures for approving any applications that collected Facebook user data?
