Over the last couple of weeks, Facebook has been trying to fix its image and has been doing this by offering a number of explanations on how it collects and uses data.
In its blogpost, the company said it believes that "once a story is rated as false, we have been able to reduce its distribution by 80 per cent, and thereby, improve accuracy of information on Facebook and reduce misinformation". "Furthermore, it is important for us to tell people if and how their data may have been accessed via This is Your Digital Life". This possibility was not lost on Donato, who stated in his ruling that damages could "amount to billions of dollars".
Facebook, in return, helps those websites serve up relevant ads or receive analytics to study how people use their services.
Zuckerberg said on Wednesday under questioning by US Representative Ben Luján that, for security reasons, Facebook also collects "data of people who have not signed up for Facebook".

A different regulatory approach would involve taking on Facebook for its power and size, but while I could envision Facebook being prevented under a more aggressive antitrust enforcement regime from buying more Instagrams and WhatsApps-or even being forced to spin off the ones it already owns-it's hard to envision how the core Facebook network could reasonably be broken up. The post also avoided completely the topic of the data that it doesn't give out in its "download all your data" feature - yes, there is some - which is still being closely guarded by the company even in Europe, where heavier privacy regulations are about to go into effect. The company gets this data from websites and apps that let people share or like posts using Facebook plugins, or log into the website with their Facebook accounts. "I can have our team get back to you afterwards".
Facebook Chief Executive Officer Mark Zuckerberg has announced a crackdown on who buys ads about divisive issues, saying this month that the company would require every such advertiser to confirm their identity and location.
Facebook says it can match that data to a Facebook profile, if the person has one.

He acknowledged mistakes and outlined steps to better ensure that third-party app developers and malefactors don't obtain unauthorized access to personal data or spread fake news.
He added: "So when a website uses one of our services, your browser sends the same kind of information to Facebook as the website receives". As well, users can opt to have their News Feeds display content chronologically instead of in the order of what Facebook predicts they might be most interested in.
