"If I were on the board, I would want him protected 24/7". And before you do the paperwork, you have to watch an informational video. "YouTube then sends it to you", notes the blog post.

BOOM will review English language news stories flagged on Facebook, check facts, and rate their accuracy, it said. Facebook also lets users tweak their ad preferences with the option of opting out of the target and interest-based ads for better control.

A different regulatory approach would involve taking on Facebook for its power and size, but while I could envision Facebook being prevented under a more aggressive antitrust enforcement regime from buying more Instagrams and WhatsApps-or even being forced to spin off the ones it already owns-it's hard to envision how the core Facebook network could reasonably be broken up.

On Monday, Facebook revealed that about 271,469 data belonging to Nigerians on Facebook, whose friends would have installed the "This is Your Digital Life" app, were exposed to the Cambridge Analytica data breach.

He added: "So when a website uses one of our services, your browser sends the same kind of information to Facebook as the website receives". "This would apply to other services beyond Facebook because, as mentioned, it is standard to how the internet works".

There are, however, other companies too that offer these types of services and get information from the apps and sites that use them.

Amid a revamp following the breakout of the data breach scandal involving Cambridge Analytica and Facebook, the social media giant announced a facelift for its "Bookmarks" section to facilitate easy access and navigation of settings.

Baser's post notably calls out other companies that it says do similar things.

Companies like Facebook and Twitter have attempted to self-regulate political ads on their platforms, introducing new transparency measures. Following that link, users will be directed to a section where they can see which apps and websites they have used Facebook to log into, and remove any they no longer want connected to their account.

A lot of us made Facebook accounts in middle school. How were they supposed to know, either?

We aren't advocating that you go delete your account right now.

The security and aircraft costs for Zuckerberg - who is certainly one of the most recognizable and wealthy chief executives in America today - may be much higher than most CEOs, but is not unusual for companies to pay for and often require personal security expenses or private aircraft use for their CEOs.

But know that your personal information has value not just to you, but to tens of thousands of advertisers (including, apparently, the Texas Motor Speedway).

CEO Mark Zuckerberg vowed to revamp Facebook and had said the company would ensure that its platform is not misused to influence elections in India and elsewhere.
