Mark Zuckerberg Calls Tim Cook's Facebook Criticism "Extremely Glib"

"Internally, the USA and China face similar challenges on how best to manage a vast information ecosystem, but for the moment at least, China can watch the Facebook smack-down with "I told you so". I think now people are appropriately focused on some of the risks and downsides as well.

Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg thinks an independent body resembling a sort of "Supreme Court" could fix some of the social media site's content problems. Here are some of the company's most notable missteps and promises around privacy. Zuckerberg said that Cook's opinion - that Apple offers a better business model as it sells products to users rather than user data to advertisers - was "extremely glib, and not at all aligned with the truth". "One is transparency", said Zuckerberg.

The extraordinarily blunt memo by a high-ranking executive - leaked this week and quickly repudiated by the author and by Facebook - warned that the social network's goal of connecting the world might have negative consequences, but that these were outweighed by the positives. The experience is now more visual, clearer and easy-to-find.

In December, Zuckerberg apologises and enables users to shut off Beacon.

"A lot of what I think social networks can do well are, first, you connect over something that you have in common", he said. It is now used by over 100,000 people around the world.

The company received the user data from a Facebook app years ago that purported to be a psychological research tool, however, the firm was not authorised to have that information.

Facebook claims a bug was responsible for failing to delete user videos.

Beacon is officially shut down, settling Lane's class action lawsuit. "It's a civil liberty, and is something that is unique to America, this is like freedom of speech and freedom of the press and privacy is right up there for us".

The third reason Vero will share your information is similar to the ways in which Facebook shares data.

Facebook did not respond to multiple attempts by TMN to contact the company before the publication of this article.

"I'm rarely in a position to defend Facebook", he said, but the view that a technology is worth spreading even though some people will use it for bad ends "is something you could have believed about the telegraph, the telephone, email, SMS, the iPhone, etc", Benton tweeted.

Fallout continues from Facebook's privacy scandal. Thanks to this data, collected without the knowledge of users, the firm was able to influence the choice of U.S. voters, he says. This was a breach of trust between Kogan, Cambridge Analytica and Facebook.

He also had some hard words along the lines of the old adage that if you're not paying for a product or service, you yourself are the product, and it's not hard to read them as a direct critique of Facebook's ad-supported model. This also allows businesses and governments the opportunity for the secure transfer of sensitive information and data.

But his remarks seem eerie in light of the opaque functioning of Facebook's newsfeed, privacy functions and collection of personal data. To be sure, they've told us bits and pieces about this through their terms of service, in our profile settings, and in those advisory pop-ups that we see every now and then - which we, of course, don't read at all, especially the fine print that accompanies them.

Since then, Facebook has suspended the Cambridge Analytica company, watched its value drop $37 billion after the weekend reports and observed its stock price drop almost seven percent. "I think you'll see throughout Asia, South America, the African continent robust debate about Facebook and other social media".
