Facebook's new plan: allow everyone to 'unsend' messages

Facebook Cto Mike Schroepfer Speaks During the Second Day of the Web Summit in Lisbon Portugal 08 November 2016 the Web Summit Runs From 07 Until 10 November 2016 Portugal Lisbon Portugal Web Summit- Nov 2016

"We realise we won't catch every ad that should be labelled, and we encourage anyone who sees an unlabelled political ad to report it. People can do this by tapping the three dots at the top right corner of the ad and selecting Report Ad", it said.

Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg will testify before a House oversight panel on April 11 amid a privacy scandal that has roiled the social media giant, the panel announced Wednesday.

The social network, which is under fire for enabling manipulation of its platform in the 2016 election, said the new policy would require any messages for candidates or public issues to include the label "political ad" with the name of the person or entity paying for it.

Facebook disclosed in September that Russians under fake names had used the social network to try to influence USA voters in the months before and after the 2016 election, writing about inflammatory subjects, setting up events and buying ads.

Denham has said that Facebook has been cooperating with her probe, though it's too soon to say whether the social network's planned changes will be enough.

We've said it before and we'll say it again: Facebook is an advertising company.

"Advertisers that don't clear the process will be banned from running political ads on our platforms until they properly authorized", a spokesman told ABC.

Elizabeth Denham, the United Kingdom privacy regulator leading the European investigations into how user data ended up in the hands of consulting firm Cambridge Analytica, will say in a speech on Monday that the technology industry and regulators must improve the public's trust and confidence in how their private information is handled.

"Election interference is a problem that's bigger than any one platform, and that's why we support the Honest Ads Act", Mr Zuckerberg wrote in his post.
But participants unknowingly gave researchers access to the profiles of their Facebook friends, allowing them to collect data from millions more users. I didn't really have any reason to doubt their sincerity. For example, in 2014, it reduced access outside apps had to user data. The Cambridge Analytica scandal only highlighted what was already known about data privacy. Next to it we will show "paid for by" information. But Christopher Wylie - the firm's former director of research, turned whistleblower - can't say how the data was used. He said there might be other Facebook officials better positioned to appear, depending on what Congress wanted to know. But facebook has also damaged the foundations of the internet and has impacted genuine news providers and directed people to specious sites spreading false news while impacting revenues of news providers.

"We know we were slow to pick-up foreign interference in the 2016 USA elections".

The firestorm over the improper data shared has sparked calls for investigations on both sides of the Atlantic.

With losses totaling around $100 billion in market cap value since the Cambridge Analytica issue came to light, Facebook is doing everything it can to stop the hemorrhaging.
