Guard Your Privacy by Deleting These 5 Things From Your Facebook Page

Lorie Shaull

He was confident. He capably tackled numerous queries proposed last week by Bloomberg columnists. FB, the $480 billion, 4th largest corporate giant in the world, generates $40 billion in advertising a year by trading data about the personal lives and preferences it has harvested from account holders.

The best news for Facebook the company was that Zuckerberg ably deflected any challenges to the beating heart of its economic model: its hungry data collection and the fine-tuned targeted advertising based on that data. But it's a loss for the rest of us. Although only 270,000 people completed the quiz, the app was able to exploit the way Facebook held data to get at information about millions more. Mr Zuckerberg told Congress that Facebook is planning to give its users - including those in the USA and Canada - all new rights under GDPR. On some days, it even logged my locations, like when I was at a hospital two years ago or when I visited Tokyo last year. The first was with Sen. Graham cut that line of answering short by pressing his line of questioning to urge Zuckerberg to list a single competitor when it comes to its main service. Facebook brags to advertisers that it can provide "cross device" targeting, as it is called. They've just said they're going to end that.

That means if Facebook were to establish a subscription service, there would be a two-tiered system where some pay for privacy and others pay with their data.

Several countries - as varied as France, Finland, Costa Rica and Estonia - have also taken the stance that all people should have access to the internet. Little wonder then that Zuckerberg embraced the idea of implementing "the right regulation" throughout his testimony, without hinting at what he considers the appropriate way to regulate Facebook. And, of course, Facebook seems just as far away from delivering what consumers clearly seem to want.

In the meantime, Facebook has adapted more about Sadia's group of friends - notwithstanding the way that Sadia has never utilized Facebook, and thusly has never consented to its strategies for information gathering.

If people don't even want to think about their privacy settings, one thing for Facebook to do, Clinton suggested in our conversation, is to make more of the default privacy choices "closed" rather than open. Facebook users are sharing their locations, photos of themselves and members of their families daily.

"I was 10 minutes in, and I was probably 10 percent of the way through the process of figuring out how to manage my data", Clinton said.


But whether its lack of decline in user numbers due to lack of privacy concerns or lack of competitors is very much up to debate.

Sen. Richard Blumenthal, D-Conn., and other lawmakers tried to get Zuckerberg to change the rules of engagement between Facebook and its users.

"If I'm not a Facebook user, I ought to have a right to know what data Facebook has about me", Froomkin said.

That's an overstatement. Most basic information, like my birthday, could not be deleted. Maybe consumers could use something like that to lock up their personal-use histories on technologies like Facebook's and Google's. And regardless, there is no way Zuckerberg can agree to this.

After the friend rebuffed a takeover offer he agreed to work with Facebook and shared his start-up company's road map. That Facebook is not going to change its stripes is obvious.

According to Facebook, this program will reward those with first-hand knowledge and proof of cases where a Facebook platform app collects and transfers user data to another party to be sold, stolen, or used for scams or political influence. Only a dramatic data diet can curb the worst downsides of Facebook.
