Zuckerberg defends Facebook business model

I could be tagged in any post, even if I hadn't reviewed it first. Think about the site's new photo montages of "friend anniversaries", wherein an algorithm culls our most liked, most commented-on photos.

"What happened to the person that took down the Franciscan University ad and didn't put it back up until the media started getting involved?"

Two local USA representatives Wednesday questioned the founder of Facebook about illegal opioid sales and pulling an ad from a Catholic college.

"We're leaving these children to the most rapacious commercial predators in the country who will exploit these children unless we absolutely have a law on the books". To regain the public's trust, Facebook has been rolling out new tools and phasing out others. Thus an annual subscription fee that matches Facebook's average ad revenue per user would be $18.75.

Some of that onus for being prepared rests on the consumer. In addition, third parties may attempt to fraudulently induce employees or users to disclose information in order to gain access to our data or our users' data. Another 35 percent had changed their settings on the platform, presumably to expose less of their personal data, while 28 percent never trusted Facebook to begin with.

It's legal. But it's not even close to enough.

Many experts in Silicon Valley attribute a growing deference to startup founders - a so-called cult of the founder - to the example Zuckerberg set when he successfully maintained control of his company and its voting shares. "So, even if we can't really measure a change and the usage of a product, or the business or anything like that, it still speaks to people feeling like this is a massive breach of trust and that we have a lot of work to do to fix that".

During questioning by Rep. Michael Burgess (R., Texas), Zuckerberg added: "It's contextual". It wasn't clear to me who they are and under what circumstances they got that information.

Yet, that's precisely what Facebook asks new users to do. The company's chief security officer, Alex Stamos, took to Twitter to complain that Facebook and other "platforms" were being held to a double standard concerning the profiles, since they may well "have been criticized as monopolists for locking them down".

Opt-in, though, is the best way to ensure people understand what they are choosing to share.

Remember that all of these "connections" are known by Facebook and owned by Facebook.

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.

Andrea Jelinek, who leads the bloc's so-called Working Party 29, also announced the creation of an organization focused on social media and privacy.

Somehow, Facebook's most recent data leak has both shocked and failed to surprise large swaths of social media users in a range of emotions that seem to fall on the side of disinterest. So how would a subscription-based, zero-ad Facebook work?

"This is a wake-up call to Silicon Valley and the tech community that if you let these things get out of hand, having grown up in a very lightly regulated environment, you could end up with a lot more regulation than you seek", he said after the hearing. Requiring new users to make privacy repairs that could be avoided at sign-up shouldn't be the default.
