Oculus Offers New Privacy Updates In light Of Recent Facebook Backlash

For privacy reasons the "tag suggestions" features in not available in most countries, and users in the US can turn it off in the social network's settings.

The outcome of the case hinges on a law in IL called the Biometric Information Privacy Act that prevents private entities from storing a person's biometrics information without their explicit consent, says Alphr.

Last month, Cook County sued Facebook and Cambridge Analytica - the data firm at the center of Facebook's most recent controversy regarding privacy and data collection - for violating an IL anti-fraud law when it gave users' data to third parties without permission.

Malacañang welcomed the initiative of social media platform Facebook to prevent the spread of false information but protested its selection of two supposed anti-Duterte entities to do the fact-checking.

Three Illinois Facebook users are arguing that Facebook has broken the state's Biometric Information Privacy Act, NPR reported. It's not used to share as many personal thoughts as it once was, but students say that, going forward, the data leak teaches a lesson about online privacy.

Facebook, in a blog post, said the programme in India aims "to fight the spread of false news on our platform".

Summers suggests that users take extra steps to protect their data so they can understand what information Facebook collects.

Roque said there's nothing wrong with the DDS' decision to shift to VK, saying they are free to do anything they want to express their sentiments over the Internet.

Next, and this is also important, is to head back to where you found your privacy settings and scroll down until you see "Apps and websites" - click on that.

"When I was asked earlier what should be done, well, the users of Facebook should make known their wishes to Facebook itself, that there should be a more partial arbiter of the truth", he said. "It certainly is scary, but you should think that hacking is bad, not Facebook".
