Facebook may unveil 'Unsend' feature post-data breach controversies

Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg

You took your time with this one, Mark.

. Next to it we will show paid for by information. " said Facebook in a statement to TechCrunch". On Wednesday, Facebook said that the political consultancy may have obtained the data of 87 million Facebook users, rather than 50 million as previously thought. Several old messages sent from Zuckerberg to employees on Messenger have been erased.

However, soon after Facebook was found retracting messages sent by Zuck and other executives from recipients' inboxes, it said that this was done to protect Mark and their executives' communications after Sony Pictures' emails were hacked back in 2014.

EU spokesman Christian Wigand said on Thursday that the bloc's justice chief Vera Jourova would have "high-level contacts in the coming days" with Facebook officials and also reach out to data protection officials, including the British authority which is leading the European investigation. The database will include details on how much the ads cost and what kinds of people the advertisers were targeting.

The new policy comes just a few months after Facebook announced related moves after it discovered sketchy ad buys that likely came from the Internet Research Agency, a Russian troll factory. The company did not say what this number would be.

Zuckerberg, who will be testifying before the US Congress next week, said after Facebook "identified Russian interference in the 2016 US elections" they successfully deployed new AI tools before the French, German and Alabama Senate special elections helping remove "tens of thousands of fake accounts".

The company will require political and issue-based ads and pages with large numbers of followers to be authorized;advertisers will need to confirm their identity and location.


You can also prevent someone finding your Facebook account through a Google search.

"Advertisers will be prohibited from running political ads - electoral or issue-based - until they are authorized", the statement added. Neither can they opt entirely out of Facebook's data collection.

Australia is investigating whether Facebook violated national privacy laws by exposing users' information to the data analysis firm Cambridge Analytica.

It started with revelations that Cambridge Analytica improperly accessed the private information of tens of millions of users to try to influence elections around the world.

A Facebook spokesperson was quoted as saying in the report.

Last night, there were reports that Facebook Messages from Zuckerberg and other Facebook executives sent to users were mysteriously gone. Facebook also acknowledged this week that almost all of its 2.2 billion users may have had their public data scraped by "malicious actors" it did not name.
