Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg apologises for data misuse

"I deeply regret that we didn't do enough to deal with it", Sandberg wrote. The good news is that the most important actions to prevent this from happening again today we have already taken years ago. "I wish we'd taken those steps earlier", Zuckerberg told Segall.

In 2007, we launched the Facebook Platform with the vision that more apps should be social.

The social media giant provided a dataset of "every friendship formed in 2011 in every country in the world at the national aggregate level" to Dr Kogan's University of Cambridge laboratory for a study on global friendships published in Personality and Individual Differences in 2015.

In 2014, to prevent abusive apps, we announced that we were changing the entire platform to dramatically limit the data apps could access.

User figures are now also under threat with search variations for "delete Facebook" increasing 423% since the news broke, according to internet behaviour monitor Hitwise.

The other is for log data - a record of what a user does, such as when they log in, click on a Facebook group or post a comment. Between 2007 and 2014, how many applications that accessed "friends data" did Facebook host?

Mozilla is concerned Facebook's default privacy settings wouldn't protect user data from third parties. Facebook learned of the data abuse in 2015, when it sought assurances from Cambridge Analytica and the academic Aleksandr Kogan (who harvested the data) that the data had been deleted. "They provided these certifications", confirms Zuckerberg.

Paul Ryan claims he's 'received assurances' that President Trump won't fire Mueller
The president challenged the investigation's existence and suggested political bias on the part of Mr Mueller's investigators. Mr Trump was referring to a dossier of unfavourable research funded by the Democratic Party and Hillary Clinton's campaign.

"We asked them multiple times and they told us they didn't have anything".

The firm's acting CEO, Alexander Tyler, said Cambridge Analytica was prepared to fully cooperate with the investigation. Concerns have been raised by government officials in the U.S and in the UK. He continued to say, "The reality here is that this isn't rocket science, I mean there's a lot of hard work that we need to do to make it harder for nation-states like Russian Federation to do election interference, to make it so that trolls and other folks can't spread fake news".

Secondly, Zuckerberg promised that going forward user data on apps will have an expiry date of sorts. As these developers are banned Facebook will notify all individuals affected by those apps. The only data that will remain accessible after these 3 months will be a user's name, email address and profile pic.

Zuckerberg sold 1.14 million shares in the two weeks preceding the company's latest calamity - more than any other insider at any other company.

Third, we want to make sure you understand which apps you've allowed to access your data. This tool will show up at the top of the News Feed.

"I'm not sure we shouldn't be regulated", Zickertold CNN.
