Mark Zuckerberg has finally responded to the furore over Facebook's handling of the Cambridge Analytica scandal. In a publication today, he said he is working to prevent similar abuses of the user's privacy. "We have a responsibility to protect your data, and if we can not, then we do not deserve to take care of it," Zuckerberg wrote in a publication. "I've been working to understand exactly what happened and how to make sure this does not happen again … The good news is that the most important actions to prevent this from happening again today have already taken place years ago, but we also made mistakes, There are more things to do, and we have to intensify and do it. "
It was Zuckerberg's first comments since reports in The New York Times and The Guardian revealed to what extent Cambridge Analytica data mining firm misused user data of up to 50 million Facebook users.
The data was provided by a professor of psychology at the University of Cambridge named Aleksandr Kogan, who transmitted it to Cambridge Analytica in violation of Facebook's terms of service. The measure raised new concerns about how Facebook data can be used without consent, which triggered investigations in the United States and the United Kingdom and caused the company's stock price to plummet.
Zuckerberg also presented a three-step plan to rebuild user confidence. In the most significant step, Facebook will remove the developer's access to its data if it has not been used in three months. The company is also conducting audits on applications that had access to information similar to the one Kogan had access to in 2014, before Facebook eliminated the ability of developers to extract information about their friends' profiles.
