Facebook has not fully answered data privacy questions, say United Kingdom lawmakers

Much of the concern over that company's involvement with Facebook was in how it harvested the data of users through quizzes on the site under the guise of academic research.

Earlier: Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg could be formally summoned by UK Parliament, after the company's Chief Technology Officer, Mike Schroepfer, provided "unsatisfactory" answers at an inquiry into fake news.

Facebook has suspended these apps, pending further investigations into each app developer's potential data misuse.

Their criticism follows an announcement by regulators that they are going to pursue their investigation into scandal-hit Cambridge Analytica despite the firm announcing its collapse.

"But he will the next time he enters the country".

But committee chairman Damian Collins said Facebook failed to provide "a sufficient level of detail and transparency" and complained of discrepancies between Mr Schroepfer's testimony and answers provided by Mr Zuckerberg to the US Senate.

But in a letter dated May 14 (PDF), Facebook's United Kingdom head of public policy, Rebecca Stimson, replied that Zuckerberg still "has no plans to meet with the committee or travel to the United Kingdom at the present time". It added that it had taken action against 370,000 apps in 2017.

In Cambridge Analytica's case it was more than 87 million people, so the amount doesn't sound that great.

Zuckerberg is likely to give evidence to the European Parliament according to Politico, and Collins says the committee will ask he does the same in the UK before the May 24 (UK Parliament).

But it's also worth noting the way the MPs phrased some of these questions allowed Facebook this wiggle room - and opened up the avenue for debate on what a "real" answer would be.

In 2014, Facebook revealed a policy change restricting access to client information, however, noticed that a few applications still had the information it had acquired before the modification.

This action taken by Facebook comes after CEO Mark Zuckerberg in March had promised that the company would "investigate all apps that had access to large amounts of information".

Social-media companies have come under intense scrutiny over reports that Facebook failed to protect the privacy of is users.

"It will show people if they or their friends installed an app that misused data before 2015 - just as we did for Cambridge Analytica", Archibong said. Between 9 and 16 April, the Facebook Like button appeared on 8.4 million websites, the Share button on 931,000 websites, and there were 2.2 million Facebook Pixels installed, the biz said. Were these 200 apps chosen simply because they requested or acquired user data, or because Facebook already has evidence or suspicion that they held onto and sold the data?

You can imagine what the biz will be saying about the MPs' response to today's 40-page reply.
