Facebook Deleted Zuckerberg's Messages From Inboxes

Facebook Deleted Zuckerberg's Messages From Inboxes

According to multiple reports, Facebook sent a doctor to several usa hospitals in the hopes of convincing them to share patient data with the social media giant.

In reply to a comment on his post, Zuckerberg stated, "Yes - 2018 has important elections across the US, Mexico, India, Brazil, Pakistan, Hungary and many other countries". Facebook's subsidiary and instant messaging platform WhatsApp rolled out a similar feature called "Delete for everyone" in November 2017.

He also said that Facebook has built a tool to let anyone see all of the ads on a page for greater transparency.

Facebook Messenger now offers a Secret Conversation mode where users can set a timer on when messages will be destroyed.

Sandberg also said, in a different interview, that Facebook could not conduct such an audit because it must wait for the United Kingdom information commissioner to finish its investigation of Cambridge Analytica's election activity. The company didn't quite explain.

"We will study the letter (from Facebook) in more detail, but it is already clear that this will need further follow-up discussions with Facebook", spokesman Christopher Wigand said. "And people using our secret message feature in the encrypted version of Messenger have the ability to set a timer - and have their messages automatically deleted", a Facebook spokesperson was quoted as saying in the report. Challenged with the evidence, Facebook confirmed that it had deleted some messages from the inboxes of the recipients, without disclosing it was doing so.

As to why Facebook "took so long" to address the Cambridge Analytica data breach, which was first reported in 2015, Sandberg told NBC "we thought that the data had been deleted".

Facebook has claimed that most of the affected users more than 70 million are based out of the United States.

"Protecting your Information" will include a link to the apps they've used and what information they've shared those applications. That is, unless you are Mark Zuckerberg. "There don't seem to be any rules - and if there are, they don't apply to Mark", Justin Hendrix, executive director of the NYC Media Lab, who is leading a public push to discuss social media regulation, told BuzzFeed News.
