Facebook Spends Nearly $23M On TV Ads To Combat Data Breach 05/21/2018
The TV campaign -- an apology of sorts -- shows Facebook has spent $22.9 million in national TV spots to date, some 599 airings since the beginning of April through May 17, according to iSpot.TV.

By comparison, for all of 2017, Facebook spent $12.1 million on national TV advertising.

On April 10, Mark Zuckerberg, chairman/CEO of Facebook, testified before Congress about the breach of user data, including by data firm Cambridge Analytica -- a company that filed for U.S. Chapter 7 bankruptcy on Friday.

Since April, Facebook has spent most of its money on ABC ($6.8 million); TNT, ($3.1 million); CBS, ($3 million); NBC, ($2.5 million); and Fox, ($2.4 million). Many of those commercial dollars went into NBA programming, the 2018 NFL Draft, NHL Hockey, “American Idol” and “Modern Family.”

U.K. vs. U.S.: How Much of Your Personal Data Can You Get? - The New York Times
<<The European Union will put in place one of the toughest data privacy laws in the world this week. The law, among other provisions, gives people in Europe the right to obtain the personal data that companies have on them. That is a sweeping right to data access that Americans don’t have. ... consumers in the United States do not have a comprehensive right to obtain copies of the data held by American companies. Facebook collects data about users’ activities on millions of non-Facebook sites that use tools like the service’s Like button. And those tools allow the company to amass detailed information about users’ web-browsing habits. As we all become more aware of fraudulent news and online voter influence campaigns, researchers, journalists and consumers have been seeking their personal details from companies to try to understand how we might be manipulated. The incomplete responses from tech companies do not bode well for such research efforts. ... T-Mobile... it would release her phone records only if the company received a subpoena compelling it to do so.>>

Facebook took down almost 1.3 billion fake accounts in last six months - Recode
Facebook disabled nearly 1.3 billion “fake” accounts over the past two quarters, many of them bots “with the intent of spreading spam or conducting illicit activities such as scams,” the company said on Monday.

Facebook disabled 583 million accounts in Q1 2018, down from 694 million accounts in Q4 of last year, a decrease the company attributes to its “variability of our detection technology’s ability to find and flag them.”

Most of the accounts “were disabled within minutes of registration,” Facebook claimed in a blog post, but Facebook doesn’t catch all fake accounts. The company estimates that 3 percent to 4 percent of its monthly active users are “fake,” up from 2 percent to 3 percent in Q3 of 2017, according to filings documents.

Germany Acts to Tame Facebook, Learning From Its Own History of Hate - The New York Times
As the world confronts these rising forces, Europe, and Germany in particular, have emerged as the de facto regulators of the industry, exerting influence beyond their own borders. Berlin’s digital crackdown on hate speech, which took effect on Jan. 1, is being closely watched by other countries. And German officials are playing a major role behind one of Europe’s most aggressive moves to rein in technology companies, strict data privacy rules that take effect across the European Union on May 25 and are prompting global changes.

Shady Marketplaces Selling Fake Facebook Profiles Operate In Plain Sight
Across Facebook there are countless others just like Audrey — dummy accounts with partially written backstories, a small posting history, and a photo gallery of real people taking real selfies. They trade hands in a vast web of fake-account marketplaces, where, for a small sum, any interested marketer, scammer, or troll can amass a legion of seemingly human profiles capable of outwitting Facebook’s detection.

Testifying before Congress in April in the aftermath of the Facebook election scandal, CEO Mark Zuckerberg told legislators “you’re not allowed to have a fake account on Facebook." And yet these fake profile marketplaces continue to thrive in plain sight online.
