A comparison of the old settings menu and new settings menu

The blog post also mentioned that Facebook was introducing tools to find, download and delete user Facebook data.

The three users - one of whom lives in California - filed their suit Tuesday at the Northern District of California in San Francisco, alleging Facebook improperly collected their phone call and text message logs via Messenger and monetized the data for advertising purposes.

The Attorney General, who is actively seeking answers from Facebook regarding how and why it shared the data of some 50 million of its subscribers, has warned everyone not to share the information the Facebook scammers request. Users who wished to turn off this feature could do so via settings.

The company has faced a global outcry after a whistleblower said that data from millions of users was improperly harvested by consultancy Cambridge Analytica to target USA and British voters in close-run elections. That's why all the work we do in growth is justified.

Facebook executives are defending themselves after a leaked memo showed discussion of its strategy to grow at all costs.


Korean users have also raised their feelings of mistrust towards Facebook, with some questioning privacy policies of other local internet firms like Naver and Kakao that also collect and handle massive user data.

The natural state of the world is not connected.

According to Egan and Beringer, the new tools under the settings menu will allow users to add more layers of protection to their account, similar to the two-factor authentication that Gmail uses.

Over the next several months, as the various investigations into Facebook unfold, we're going to hear a lot about the company's privacy practices. Kakao offers only a user's nickname, e-mail and KakaoTalk profile picture.

The latest, disturbing revelation is that the social media giant has been keeping copies of users' videos even after they thought they were deleted from the site, according to New York Magazine.


"This is a Facebook problem, not a brand problem", says Josh von Scheiner, founder and creative director at social media agency VonShine Industries. However, they now do not have mechanisms to ensure that the data they had originally provided remains secure.

2013 Facebook shares two-year-old anonymized data on billions of friendships between countries with Cambridge researcher Aleksandr Kogan and co-authors a research paper with him (published in 2015).

During the almost two years that the memo remained on Facebook's internal platform, BuzzFeed wrote, employees commented on it and debated it. This was one that most people at Facebook including myself disagreed with strongly.

Facebook was also blasted with negative attention past year over criticism of how it handled Russia-linked ads aimed to sow division in the USA election and former employees such Chamath Palihapitiya saying that it had pursued growth while the "short-term, dopamine-driven feedback loops that we have created are destroying how society works". All the subtle language that helps people stay searchable by friends. "We also need to work to bring people closer together".

"All of it", Facebook Vice President Andrew "Boz" Bosworth wrote in a 2016 memo for Facebook employees titled "The Ugly", which was publicized by US-based BuzzFeed News.


"So we connect more people", said Bosworth later in the memo. They also don't really have a higher objective other than their corporate bottom line, although they like to pretend otherwise - it makes it easier for them to both attract top talent and sleep at night. Maybe it costs someone a life by exposing someone to bullies.
