Yes, Facebook collects data even when you are logged out

Yes, Facebook collects data even when you are logged out

Zuckerberg had told the US Congress last week that his own personal data was part of 87 million users' that was "improperly shared" with British political consultancy firm Cambridge Analytica. In many ways it was a tribute to democracy.

Tufekci says the targeting specificity that Facebook user data allows is chilling, giving as an example the ability to determine if a person is bipolar: "You can predict people's likelihood of entering a depressive state or a manic state in the next few months ... you can imagine the kind of manipulation that it's open to". He promised to rectify and improve privacy practices and put a legion of 20,000 techies to identify and clean up fake news and remove "hate" posts. The question was created to illustrate how important it was to protect individual privacy.

The filing also quoted Zuckerberg's testimony that Facebook had a responsibility to ensure that its tools were "used for good", and that "terrorist propaganda" qualified as "clearly bad activity" that should be reduced.

While Zuckerberg is okay with consenting to some vague assertions that regulation is needed, he is loathe to any specific law outlining privacy norms. The company has now tried to clarify on questions how it collects data even when people are actually logged out of the website or the app. Appearing on the "Democracy Now!" news hour, Tufekci said: "We don't really need Mark Zuckerberg to explain the very basics of Facebook to a bunch of senators who don't seem to even understand that. This is because other apps and sites don't know who is using Facebook", reads the blog post. However, as we have seen FB is in the business of hosting content of billions of users, and trading it for advertising revenue.

Mr. Zuckerberg's suggestion that Facebook's data-mishandling problems have been the innocent byproduct of a plucky, upstart website growing too fast for its creators to keep up is both a grasp at a too-convenient avoidance of accountability and a denial of Facebook's continuing inclination to remain on regulatory control's wild frontier.

"Confronted with overwhelming evidence and public pressure Zuckerberg has now been forced to admit what we have alleged all along".
