Facebook says a Few of Mark Zuckerberg’s Articles were deleted

Facebook spends $22.6 million to keep Mark Zuckerberg safe

The documents that entail email, webchats, presentations, spreadsheets, and convening synopsis portray how Zuckerberg along with his board and management team devised methods to tap Facebook's repository of user data involving guidance about friends, relationships and photos as resistance over companies it associated with.

Mark Zuckerberg is once again on the hot seat for Facebook's handling of sensitive user data after a trove of documents were released showing the CEO toyed with shopping the data - just for kicks.

The documents show Facebook considered several ways that third-party apps could compensate it for access to user data, according to NBC News, including ad spending, data sharing and direct payments. "In other cases, it would deny user-data access to rival companies or apps", the report claimed.

News reports that Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg reportedly used Facebook user data as a bargaining chip to consolidate the social media platform's power over its competitors, while publicly proclaiming to protect user privacy.

Despite those shifts, Facebook has still been sharing heaps of data with companies like Netflix, Amazon and Spotify.

Facebook officials said the documents were cherry-picked from a court case involving a little-known start-up, writing, "The sets of documents, by design, tell only one side of the story and omit important context".


Although the new Wired details aren't much to go off, they continue to add up to the bigger storyline that Zuckerberg wanted more control over Instagram, as well as the ability to turn the app into a closer sister to Facebook.

"The objective of the platform is to tie the universe of all the social apps together so we can enable a lot more sharing and still remain the central social hub", Zuckerberg wrote in an email where he detailed his new vision.

The documents also show that changes to its policies Facebook made to "protect privacy" were really a PR stunt meant to benefit its developers who benefitted from its data, while earning some positive media coverage in the process. The story is based on 4,000 pages of documents leaked to Omidyar-funded British investigative journalist Duncan Campbell, who shared them with NBC and two other outlets.

The way Facebook shares business data has changed through recent years.

What do you think of the latest privacy and user data issue at Facebook?

A New York Times report previous year claimed for the first time that Facebook allowed large technology companies and popular apps like Netflix or Spotify access to its users' personal information. The facts are clear: "we've never sold people's data".
