Facebook to launch 'unsend' feature amid growing crisis

Facebook to launch 'unsend' feature amid growing crisis

The report adds, "Facebook didn't have details about whether recipients would be notified when a message was unsent and retracted from their inboxes, whether the feature would apply retroactively to old messages sent before the launch or whether users would need to designate a message as expiring/ unsendable before they send it". Veuer's Sam Berman has the full story. Facebook said that Zuckerberg and the other executives would not use it until everyone else could.The end-to-end encrypted setting of Messenger even already has the ability to set messages to delete after a stipulated amount of time.

Washington:Some of the information improperly harvested from Facebook Inc. users might be stored in Russian Federation, said the former employee of Cambridge Analytica who blew the whistle on the data-privacy scandal involving the analytics firm's role in the 2016 presidential election.

Shah later said what he meant was political parties having no ideological similarities were coming together out of fear of Modi. Hitting out at Modi and the BJP, the Congress president said they have lost track of running the country.

That new requirement will launch alongside a set of features meant to preserve user trust in Facebook publishers: for instance, the history of a Facebook page will now be visible, and users will be notified if a page they have liked changes its name.

Google celebrates the life of Maya Angelou with new Doodle
Angelou provided eloquent commentary on race, gender and living life to its fullest in writing which brought her wide acclaim. Google also included quotes from the celebrities who narrated the video and said what Angelou meant to them.

She says "Facebook has been co-operating with us and, while I am pleased with the changes they are making, it is too early to say whether they are sufficient under the law". "This may take some time", a Facebook spokeswoman wrote in an email on Friday. And until this feature is ready, we will no longer be deleting any executives' messages. "Mark [Zuckerberg] is really sorry for that, and what we're doing now is taking really firm action". This way, a message will disappear from the sender and receiver's inboxes after a certain amount of time. Advertisers and third-party apps have flocked to the social media giant because of its vast user data, with Facebook generating profits of nearly $16 billion past year. More often than not, his apologies have followed revelations about how little regard the social media site has for user views and privacy interests. Facebook's chief technology officer, Mike Schroepfer, said in a blog post published on Wednesday that given the scale and sophistication of the activity they have seen, they believe most people on Facebook could have had their public profile scraped in this way due to which they have now disabled that feature. For instance, WhatsApp has offered an unsend feature since previous year, which lets users revoke a message within a short period of time after sending the message. The social media giant claims it could offer self-destructing messages similar to Secret chat.
