Facebook updates with post on logged-out data collection

Facebook is calling it the Data Abuse Bounty.

In other words, unless every site on the internet and all apps suddenly stopped using Facebook's services, there's no escape from the company, even if you go ahead and delete your Facebook account. Facebook had admitted that almost 5.62 lakh people in India were "potentially affected" by the incident. One of the conditions that app came attached with was that its developer could save any and all data sourced from one's voluntary use of the game. "We've got to fix that", said Rep. Luján, referring to a process that forces non Facebook users to sign up for the service if they want to know what personal information the company has obtained. "We are putting a link at the top of people's News Feeds to make sure that everyone sees it".

"I don't want people to turn around and say I want to switch off Facebook", he told Trusted Reviews.

Want to find out if your data was affected? The countries listed were Philippines, UK, Indonesia, United Kingdom, Mexico, Canada, India, Brazil, Vietnam and Australia.

The company however said it is taking numerous measures.

Only one-third of Canadians trust Facebook, the poll shows.

Facebook is running similar initiatives in France, Italy, the Netherlands, Germany, Mexico, Indonesia, the Philippines and the US. Separately, the European Union commission is planning to unveil new legislation next week to set rules for how they deal with business users, part of a wave of new rules across Europe that seek to curb big internet firms, majority American. In an official blog post, published on 16 April, Facebook throws light on the objective and nature of data it is collecting from third party websites and apps which are using their various engagement tools. With the vast trough of data of 2 billion users, Facebook can efficiently train its AI and make this prediction model even smarter.


Many companies offer these types of services and, like Facebook, they also get information from the apps and sites that use them.

Facebook says many other websites and apps use its services to make ads more relevant, including social plugins (the floating Like/Share buttons); using Facebook as a login to their sites/apps; Facebook Analytics; and the company's ads/measurement tools.

The company also suspended a data analytics firm called Cubeyou ahead of an investigation.

Facebook, in a blog post, said the programme in India aims "to fight the spread of false news on our platform". However, he never explained what these reasons are, nor did he explain what Facebook is doing with the information it gathers, aside from using it for security purposes. "We will pay the person who reported the issue, and we will also alert those we believe to be affected".

While stating the above, Baser sought to clarify: "We don't sell people's data".

"Just like the bug bounty program, Facebook will reward based on the impact of each report".
