Housing ads allow bias, Facebook is told in suit

How to download your Facebook data

Facebook is encountering a tremendous pressure for sharing information with 3rd-party companies.

Facebook responded to Ars Technica in a "fact check" blog post that denies it has collected call and SMS history from anyone without their permission.

However, the good news is that Facebook gives users the option to see most of the information that's been collected so far.

It was still a little unsettling to scroll through some of the results, particularly my recent history of interacting with ads - information that Facebook says it only retains for a certain period of time. Previously, he was vice president of ads and helped create Facebook features such as Messenger, its news feed and groups.

People discovered they could request all of their Facebook data as a zip file and now they are posting the results on Twitter.

Is this the full story? Others are questioning whether users really understood what they were agreeing to when they opted in. This indicates that anybody from the group can make a custom link as well as share it with different users to invite them to join. Among other things, it narrows the scope of app permissions so they don't suck in as much user data automatically.

What I didn't realize - and you may not have realized this, either - is that the Facebook-owned chat app Messenger continuously syncs phone contacts unless you proactively turn it off.

Facebook also seems to think that I was in the 2nd Stryker Cavalry Regiment in the U.S. Army (nope), that I watch a lot of Channel 4 (which is in the United Kingdom), and that I'm a big fan of Undercover Boss (which I've seen maybe twice).

Wednesday morning First Alert forecast
Highs will be in the low 50s around lunchtime in the Denver area, with temperatures dropping into the low 40s by late afternoon. The rain will move out Thursday morning, but clouds and cool temperatures will once again linger across the area.

Much needed moisture for Colorado. Clearing skies and cool Tuesday in Denver
A modified arctic air mass is still expected to move across the divide bringing in cooler temperatures. Fog will burn off by mid-morning, leaving behind a sun/cloud mix with highs back into the mid 80s.

Facebook lists an absurd number of pages and groups that I've become a fan of and joined; 376 pages and 89 groups. "No, you agreed when you signed up to Facebook to share this data with them", says Mike Jhansson, a Senior Lecturer at RIT's School of Communications.

Here's another link that shows you how to do that.

Facebook says it learns from The Guardian and other media outlets that Cambridge Analytica did not delete improperly obtained Facebook data and suspends the company, Kogan, and whistleblower Christopher Wylie from its service. Click on download to start the process.

The American Civil Liberties Union warns people that Facebook's default settings mean that when a friend uses an app or takes a quiz, the quiz- or app-maker can peer into your profile, even if you've made it private. The data is not sold to third parties, it said.

And Facebook isn't just collecting data to figure out who you are, but also who you know and who your friends know.

Controls that are easier to find and useWe've redesigned our entire settings menu on mobile devices from top to bottom to make things easier to find.

One of the latest announcements to come in is changes to the Messenger app. Ime Archibong, VP, Platform Partnerships announced a few updates, many of which affect Messenger too. Or suggests people that you might want to be friends with? This includes photos you've uploaded, contacts you've added to your account, posts on your timeline, and more.
