KIYC: Finding what information Facebook knows about you

  • Didn't Get The Notification? Here's Another Way To Check Whether Your Facebook Data Was Shared With Cambridge Analytica

Their questions allowed Zuckerberg to portray himself and his company as "idealist and optimistic", giving the impression that both Zuckerberg and his 25,000 employees simply stumbled into multiple privacy debacles over the years.

Radio Sputnik discussed this issue with Vince Mitchell, Professor of Marketing at the University of Sydney Business School.

I think yes and no. Facebook is probably better at collecting so much data about everyone.

"But I think you have to be careful about putting regulation in place".

In his opening remarks at US Congress, he said: "Facebook is an idealistic and optimistic company".

Facebook does have a support page titled,"I don't have a Facebook account and would like to request all personal data stored by Facebook".

"As CEO you didn't know some key facts", Dingell said.

"But I am committed to getting this right, and that includes the basic responsibility of protecting people's information, which we failed to do with Cambridge Analytica", he said.

"The only time we might use the microphone is when you use the video, but we don't have anything that is trying to listen to what's going on in the background", Zuckerberg said.

Zuckerberg agreed: "If there's an imminent threat of harm, we're going to take a conservative position on that and make sure that we flag that and understand that more broadly".

That makes the information mostly useless if you hoped to use it to join a different social network, because it's incomplete and not organized in a way that another service could easily import.


If Zuckerberg doesn't want to talk about this issue in front of lawmakers, it may be because he fears regulation that would curb Facebook's ability to track data on third-party sites. And certainly in Europe this is happening.

Next month, the European Union countries will introduce General Data Protection Regulation.

Dingell expressed frustration with Zuckerberg's frequent promises to get back to lawmakers later in writing.

Regardless of Zuckerberg's messaging, establishment media and far-left outlets have seen a huge boost on Facebook's platform while independent publishers have dropped.

For example, the term "shadow profile" has been widely used to describe information Facebook collects about people who don't belong to the social network. With banks too big to fail Facebook is too big to fail.

"Every time that someone chooses to share something on Facebook. there is a control".

That may change in the future.

These days, an increasing number of users are complaining about Facebook, saying that it is focusing more on platform expansion than on user convenience. Facebook itself, and its Messenger app, are meant for people 13 and older. Sitting online where for some people it is true and some people don't care that privacy is dead. You can also download a copy of your Facebook data under settings. So I would encourage people to do that just to check out exactly what kind of data these companies hold on you and you will be amazed at the volume, and the detail, and the specificity.

There's a couple things you can do.

"What we know now is that Cambridge Analytica improperly obtained some information about millions of Facebook members by buying it from an app developer that people had shared it with", he said.
