Facebook admits data failings as chiefs face questions from TDs

Facebook charge GETTYWill Facebook launch a new paid-for service

The message suggests that only a small number of people who had the app "This Is Your Digital Life" had their data shared and it was not millions of users but it is just another stunt to save face. Facebook made a move that allows the users to check if they were the victims of this scandal.

"The issues of personal data processing on the one hand and electoral matters on the other are distinct and separate from each other and my office has no role in regulating the core aspects of electoral activity, including advertising and canvassing activities, other than where personal data is deployed", she will tell the committee.

David Firth is a professor of management information systems in the College of Business at the University of Montana and a faculty fellow with Advanced Technology Group in Missoula.

While younger generations are switching to Instagram and Snapchat as their primary social media platforms, 82 percent of 18-29-year-olds use Facebook, according to a Pew Research Center study. This is a way stronger test than saying that if you show someone an ad then they will vote for a Russian, without actually seeing if the person even voted at all, let alone for a Russian.

At a minimum, "Facebook is going to have to think about ways to structure their technology to give that proper notice", said Woodrow Hartzog, a Northeastern University professor of law and computer science. The data breach incident of Facebook also triggered a furor in India with Ravi Shankar Prasad, the IT Minister of India, last month alerting the firm of "strict" action for any effort to manipulate polls via data theft and intimidating to summon Mark Zuckerberg, the CEO of Facebook.

"Social media is eroding democracy", Summers said.

The Facebook executives will say that they are "aligned with its goals". He also said users should check their settings to see what apps are accessing their data.

Though Summers said people can't expect Facebook to be "good stewards" of user data, Chang believes that others should focus on hacking and privacy in general, and not just pointing fingers at Facebook. "Major organizations have been hacked before, like the IRS, but because social media is such a new thing and it's fun, we focus on the bad things when they do happen".
