As Facebook scandals mushrooms, Zuckerberg vows to ‘step up’. Mark Zuckerberg pledged Wednesday to “step up” to settle issues encompassing information protection, as it battles a snowballing embarrassment over the commandeering of individual information from its millions of users.
Zuckerberg particularly specified India’s inevitable forthcoming elections, when answering to an inquiry on how the online networking mammoth would check the impact of outside components in the race procedures of different nations.
“We have a responsibility to do this, not only for the 2018 midterms in the US, which are going to be a huge deal this year and that’s just a huge focus for us, but there’s a big election in India this year, there’s a big election in Brazil, there are big elections around the world, and you can bet that we are really committed to doing everything that we need to make sure that the integrity of those elections on Facebook is secured,” answering in an interview with CNN.
“We have a responsibility to protect your data, and if we can’t then we don’t deserve to serve you,” Zuckerberg had previously mentioned, in his first public comments upon the harvesting of Facebook user data by a British firm linking to President Donald Trump’s 2016 campaign.
Publishing on his Facebook page, Zuckerberg declared new strides to get control over the spillage of information to outside designers and outsider applications, while giving clients more control over their data through a unique toolbar.
“This was a major breach of trust, and I’m really sorry this happened,” he said in an interview on CNN. “Our responsibility now is to make sure this doesn’t happen again.”
Anyhow, the situation is definitely not right now for the Facebook. The breach in user data and privacy has always been a concern for the users. It isn’t the first time that has happened but their has been numerous circumstances where the third party has hijacked the data.
Most importantly the continuous tampering in the user data is raising questions for the protection of privacy. Nonetheless, the matter looked to be upon and investigated for the transparency and protecting the users choice.
