    Pressure mounts on Zuckerberg to face data breach concerns
    Dave Lee
    North America technology reporter

    19/3/18



    Facebook founder and chief executive Mark Zuckerberg is facing intensified
    calls to appear in person at investigations into the social network's conduct.

    His company has been accused of failing to properly inform users that their
    profile information may have been obtained and kept by Cambridge Analytica,
    a data firm widely-credited with helping Donald Trump win the 2016 US
    presidential election.Facebook said on Friday it had blocked Cambridge Analytica
    from Facebook while it investigated claims the London-based firm did not, as
    promised, delete data that was allegedly obtained using methods that were in
    violation of Facebook's policies.

    Both Cambridge Analytica and Facebook deny any wrongdoing.Despite pledging
    that in 2018 he would "fix" his company, Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg has
    managed to avoid engaging with the site's growing number of critics - instead
    sending lawyers or policy bosses to various committee hearings.The 33-year-old's
    recent remarks on some of Facebook's controversies have been communicated in
    the relatively safe space of a blog post or video message published on his Facebook page.

    CHILLING! Corbett Report: China Banning People From Transit for Bad "Social Credit" Scores

    Quote corbettreport
    Published on Mar 18, 2018
    SHOW NOTES: https://www.corbettreport.com/?p=26449

    The slow-motion train wreck of "social credit" systems and the "gamification" of society has moved to the next stage. Now the Chinese government is going to start barring people from flying or riding trains if their social credit score is not up to snuff. China may be the test case for these ideas, but they're already being rolled out in other countries. So what are we going to do about it?
    From Forbidden Knowledge:
    Quote No sooner has Xi Jinping donned the mantle of "Paramount" Leader-for-life and ramped-up Internet censorship than the "social credit" system outlined in 2014 has been unleashed upon the Chinese public, with people now being barred from air travel or riding on trains if their social credit score is found to be lacking, under the "Once untrustworthy, always restricted" policy.

    A few months ago, I ran a story about China's new Sesame Credit-powered social rating system, with China's answer to Jeff Bezos, Jack Ma, founder of Alibaba Group Ltd. as one of its architects. The new Chinese social credit system merges individual credit and legal records and social media accounts, claiming to foster "sincerity culture" and "traditional virtues" to improve the honesty a creditworthiness of society as a whole.

    If your "citizen ranking" sinks too low, you cannot travel, buy property, send your child to a good school or even eat at a nice restaurant. Every aspect of life factors in. Online shopping habits are traced, with certain purchases dragging down your score, such as video games. The government looks at your bills, your school records, whether you jaywalk and even whether you visit your parents enough. Your social media accounts are checked for any form of dissent. Your score can tank, cutting you off from your life if your enter the wrong numbers while paying a court fee, as Chinese journalist, Liu Hu found out, according to 9News in Australia.

    The final version of this scoring system is set to be implemented in 2020. It will relay real-time data reports to government officials, law enforcement and maybe to certain private citizens. Law enforcement is currently testing eye glasses with advanced facial recognition software that pull data from national databases, to instantly recognize criminals or political dissidents and which could conceivably be plugged into this social credit system.

    This is not an Orwellian freak show reserved for an increasingly repressive Communist state. A Sesame Credit-type Carrot Rewards app was already been rolled out in Canada, in what James Corbett calls a "merger of behavioral science, gaming and government."

    Facebook's Zuckerberg admits mistakes over Cambridge Analytica

    2 minutes ago..21/3/18

    Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg has admitted the giant social network "made mistakes"
    in his first comments since a data scandal engulfed the company.Political consultancy
    Cambridge Analytica is accused of misusing data from 50 million Facebook users.

    In a statement on his Facebook page, Mr Zuckerberg admitted a "breach of trust" had occurred.
    He also pledged a series of changes, making it far harder for apps to "harvest" user information.
    The CEO said: "We have a responsibility to protect your data, and if we can't then we don't
    deserve to serve you.

    "I started Facebook, and at the end of the day I'm responsible for what happens on our platform."

    Published on 21 Mar 2018
    Zuck goes Jimmy Hoffa. After three days of being inexplicably missing from the
    public arena at a time when Facebook stock was crashing, the company was being
    sued, and shareholders were demanding answers, moments ago CEO Mark
    Zuckerberg finally broke his silence, and published a statement on Facebook,
    updating on the Cambridge Analytica situation, "including the steps we've already
    taken and our next steps to address this important issue," ZeroHedge notes.

    While we repost the full statement below, the following excerpts are key:

    We have a responsibility to protect your data, and if we can't then we don't deserve
    to serve you. I've been working to understand exactly what happened and how to
    make sure this doesn't happen again. The good news is that the most important
    actions to prevent this from happening again today we have already taken years
    ago. But we also made mistakes, there's more to do, and we need to step up and do it.

    Translation: Facebook never did audits of what apps have access to user data to
    determine if they complied with the TOS. Which is perfectly understandable: after
    all Facebook is in the "selling user data" business not "protecting user data"
    business.

    Facebook scandal 'hit 87 million users'
    5 minutes ago...4/4/18



    Facebook has said it now believes up to 87 million people's data was improperly
    shared with the political consultancy Cambridge Analytica.The BBC has been told
    that about one million of them are UK-based.The overall figure had been previously
    quoted as being 50 million by the whistleblower Christopher Wylie.

    The details were revealed in a blog by the tech firm's chief technology officer, Mike
    Schroepfer.It was published several hours after the US House Commerce
    Committee announced that Facebook's founder, Mark Zuckerberg, would testify
    before it on 11 April.

    The tech firm has faced intense criticism after it emerged that it had known for years
    that Cambridge Analytica had harvested data from millions of its users, but had relied
    on the London-based firm to self-certify that it had deleted the information.
