The company is now requiring the administrators of popular Facebook pages to become verified, and also extending previous disclosure rules for political ads to issues-based advertising.

Facebook published this week, explaining that beginning on Monday, April 9, there would be a new link at the top of everyone's News Feed. "We're working on rolling our AI tools out everywhere and in all these languages".

"This work has not progressed past the planning phase, and we have not received, shared, or analysed anyone's data", a Facebook spokesperson told.In the wake of the Cambridge Analyticadata breach, Facebook has reportedly suspended a research project where the social media giant was in touch with several major USA hospitals to collect data about their patients. "There's the Mexican presidential election, there are big elections in India and Brazil as well as in Pakistan and Hungary and a number of other countries and the United States midterms, of course".

With the wounds from the Cambridge Analytica data scandal still raw, Facebook has banned another third-party company from its platform over the improper use of data - this time it's Canadian political consulting firm AggregateIQ. "But they will make it a lot harder for anyone to do what the Russians did during the 2016 election and use fake accounts and pages to run ads".

Facebook, facing enormous pressure over the scandal, said Friday it had suspended AggregateIQ pending further investigation.

"We know that we did not do enough to protect people's data", Sandberg told National Public Radio. "We're trying to do that now", she said. "We should have done this sooner - and we're sorry that we did not", reads a statement by Facebook's spokesperson, cited by the media.

Social network giant Facebook is set to launch a new feature to its messaging service that will allow users to unsend and permanentlydelete messages. Last year Facebook-owned WhatsApp added the ability for you to delete your messages.

"That was something we should have caught, we should have known about", she told NPR. The creator paid about 270,000 people to take the quiz which then vacuumed up not just the data of the people who took it, but also data from people on their friends list.
