Facebook Announces New "Clear History" Feature To Delete Your Browsing History

Mark Zuckerberg threatened with summons by British lawmakers probing Cambridge Analytica scandal

Zuckerberg recapped all the ways the site was addressing issues around election interference, fighting fake news and data privacy issues, claiming that what happened with Cambridge Analytica was a "major breach of trust".

Mr Zuckerberg also said Facebook was building a new privacy control called "clear history" to allow users to delete browsing history.

"When you're a Facebook user, and over time you became aware of a comparable service, then it's less likely that you will go on to Tinder", Mogharabi noted. The feature will be called "Clear History".

"Now you can bring your friends together", Zuckerberg said to chuckles.

Zuckerberg testified before Congress last month for about 10 hours over two days.

Facebook has a mission to connect people to each other, Zuckerberg explained, and it won't stop building tools that do so. Users can chat one-on-one with another user or with a small group and they can keep the conversation going for as long as they want.

The announcement comes on the heels of Bumble's high-profile departure from Facebook, as the dating service removed its previous Facebook profile requirement after some users cited issues with the direction Facebook has been heading lately. For instance, Facebook could use the conference to release a portable headset created to turn the so far geeky realm of virtual reality into a mass phenomenon.

On the virtual reality front, Zuckerberg announced that the Oculus Go, a standalone VR headset, starts shipping Tuesday.

Shares of Match Group Inc MTCH.O and its parent IAC IAC.O plunged, wiping some $5 billion (£3.67 billion) off their combined market values, after Facebook Chief Executive Mark Zuckerberg said his social media platform would develop its own dating app to rival Tinder, Match and others.

That is, if you want. As per the company's official blog post, now you'll also be able to see which apps and websites are sending data to Facebook.

The company has been under fire recently for possibly not considering users' privacy and security in its features.

A year ago, Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg was dazzling thousands of software developers with the prospect of augmented reality features that could let people spruce up apartments with digital art.

Concerns about privacy on Facebook have grown since the social network's admission in March that the data of millions of users was wrongly harvested by political consultancy Cambridge Analytica. In fact, after weeks of saying he's sorry to users and lawmakers alike, Zuckerberg did not apologize to the app developers in attendance at F8.

"The hardest decision I made wasn't to invest in safety and security", Zuckerberg said.

It's normally a sympathetic audience.
