Zuckerberg's testimony mars case, lawyer for Israeli terror victims says

600Facebook

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.

They posted their biggest daily gain in nearly two years on Tuesday as Zuckerberg managed to deter any specific discussion about new regulations that might hamper Facebook's ability to sell ads tailored to users' profiles.

The "we don't sell data" party line was uttered several times during Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg's appearance before Congress. Not really. Any website that uses Facebook log in or sign up option, runs Facebook ads, has a Like button alongside its posts or uses Facebook analytics sends information about your browsing activity back to the social network. He cited Twitter, LinkedIn, Google, Amazon and Pinterest as only five examples of platforms known to be surveilling users.

Those willing and able to pay are probably richer than the average user, so luxury businesses pay more to advertise to them, and probably spend more time browsing Facebook than the average user, so they see more of those ads. "Many companies offer these types of services and, like Facebook, they also get information from the apps and sites that use them". The document that has been filed late on Friday, Facebook said it had spent $7.3 million in personal security costs and $1.5 million on personal use of private aircraft by Zuckerberg in 2017. "Period." Zuckerberg says Facebook "failed" to protect users' information following the use by Cambridge Analytica of data scraped from about 87 million Facebook users to target political ads ahead of the 2016 U.S. presidential election.

Allegiant Air Safety Called Into Question
On Sunday night, CBS aired a " 60 Minutes " segment on Allegiant Air that raised concerns about the low-priced airline's safety. The agency said it did a comprehensive review of Allegiant in 2016, finding no systemic safety or regulatory problems.

Another person who spoke on the matter was blockchain technology consultant Jill Carlson, who attended meetings where Cambridge Analytica pitched its services to digital currency startups.

Facebook Product Management Director David Baser reminds readers in the lengthy blog post that Facebook is merely doing what others websites also do when it comes to tracking you.

Facebook continues to suggest that users have all the control over their data. This means that if one of my friends took a quiz on Facebook, an organization would have access to all my data without my explicit consent.

Huge asteroid gives Earth surprise flyby
Asteroid 2018 GE3, an Apollo type earth-crossing asteroid, was flying through area at 66,174 miles per hour (106,497 km/h). However, at 44 to 110 meters in diameter, this asteroid is big enough to cause massive damage if it was to hit our planet.

Zuckerberg also wasn't clear on how the company would offer all users privacy protection equal to that offered by European Union regulations taking effect next month. He went further to promise that Facebook was conducting a full investigation into every app that has access to user's information from the platform.

If you want to protect your data, the obvious think to do would be to quit Facebook. "We'll keep working to make that easier".

"We do not accept Mr Nix's reason for not appearing in a public session before the Committee", he added in an emailed statement.

Lawsuit alleges Facebook gathered unauthorized biometric data
Facebook told Reuters that it "continue [s] to believe the case has no merit and will defend [itself] vigorously". Also on Monday, Facebook confirmed that it collected information from people beyond their social network use.
