Facebook has revealed it is building a new privacy control called "clear history" to allow users to delete browsing data. "As soon as we introduce this update, you will be able to see the information about the applications and web sites with whom you interacted, and clear this information from your account", - he said. One of the most important data sets the company has relates to your browsing history - the list of websites and apps that you visit even when you are not on Facebook.
Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg might not want to visit the United Kingdom any time soon.
In written evidence submitted to United Kingdom parliament last week, Facebook revealed it had found "certain billing and administrative connections" between Cambridge Analytica and AIQ, the data firm that helped Vote Leave in the run up to the Brexit referendum and spent $2m on Brexit-related ads.
Facebook joins internet giants Amazon, Microsoft and Google in offering artificial-intelligence based translation features - most prominently Google's Pixel ear buds which promise real-time translation across dozens of languages. In response to the criticism, Facebook has streamlined its data settings interface, promised to investigate any signs of information misuse, and committed to tougher penalties for any firms or organizations contravening those policies.
In the letter, Damian Collins, Chairman of the Digital, Culture, Media and Sport Committee, said Zuckerberg can either go there voluntarily by May 24, or officials will issue a summons.
With Facebook Clear History feature, Zuckerberg is looking to give people a better control over their data.
Zuckerberg also announced that Facebook will soon re-open its app review process for third-party developers after it was paused in April following the Cambridge Analytica revelations.
The company's annual F8 conference kicks off Tuesday in San Jose, California, at the McEneryy Convention Center following a year of fake news, privacy scandals, congressional testimony, Russian Federation investigations and apologies.
Facebook has admitted up to 87 million users may have had their data hijacked in the scandal, which saw Zuckerberg grilled at length by the US Congress last month. "The hard part was figuring out a way to move forward on everything else we need to do, too".
