Facebook says it tracks non-users but doesn't 'sell people's data'

19 April 2018

When any user visits the apps and advertisements which uses service of Facebook, it increases the database of the company as these apps revert the information to the social media site for verification. "This is an attack on the rule of law, Facebook has to answer to this Parliament". We have a society based on information but we are not protecting our data, in most cases the digital arena has not been taken into account. The numbers also do not include people who installed the app and then deleted their Facebook accounts.

The European Parliament is debating data protection and the privacy of citizens' amid the scandal surrounding Facebook and the Cambridge Analytica consultancy firm.

Mark Zuckerberg's second-in-command runs Facebook's operations and oversees its advertising business, placing her in a nearly unrivaled role of responsibility when as many as 87 million Facebook users had their data siphoned by Cambridge Analytica, a British firm with ties to Donald Trump's 2016 presidential campaign.

Kaiser continues that she was not aware of any agreement or data sharing in relation to Breitbart London, in particular, or if US data tracking tags had been set in place to collect data on what stories Brits were reading on Breitbart or other right-wing websites. "Confronted with overwhelming evidence and public pressure Zuckerberg has now been forced to admit what we have alleged all along".

According to a Guardian report, Brittany Kaiser told the parliamentary committee on Tuesday that Cambridge Analytica had a suite of personality quizzes created to extract personal data from the social network.

The firms has also been linked to Cambridge Analytica, the political consultancy firm accused of improperly accessing private Facebook data to help political campaigns, including Donald Trump's USA presidential bid and Brexit. This isn't the first time that Facebook has come under fire for privacy issues, but Facebook users are hoping it will be the last.
