Facebook failed to eliminate discriminatory housing ads, lawsuit says

73% of Canadians to change Facebook habits after data mining furor, survey suggests

The ongoing scandal that Facebook is now involved in has got many people concerned about their Facebook data.

In an official blog post, Facebook said, "Facebook's bug bounty program will expand so that people can also report to us if they find misuses of data by app developers".

To see the information Facebook has on a user, the user must click on the "settings" tab on the top right of the home page then click on the "Download a copy of your Facebook data".

Similarly, many old and long-unused apps still have access to my data after I used my Facebook login to access them.

Dylan McKay, who created the script, has made the code available on Github for anyone who would like to make sense of their own Facebook data.

Facebook, with more than 2 billion users a month, provides advertisers with the ability to customize their messages and target who sees them by selecting from preset lists of demographics, likes, behaviors and interests, while excluding others.

Now, we'll go through an even more essential exercise: How to download the entire archive of information that Facebook says it has for you-in just a few quick steps. On the "General" section, select the option to "download a copy of your Facebook data". The file can be a creepy wake-up call: All those years of browsing the News Feed, and sharing selfies, engagements and birthday wishes on Facebook have taught the company quite a lot about you. In case you want to prevent Facebook from tracking your online activity then Mozilla Firefox has a solution for you. No one harvests data, it uses phone numbers rather than user accounts, and it's free and easy to set up.

So, how do you check to see whether you've given Facebook access to your call history?

Some users obviously failed to realise how much information Facebook was collecting from their smartphones, however, as users turned to rival social networks to describe their "shock". "Do I want to be on Facebook?".

You need to log onto Facebook and go to the "Settings" page. But some Android users may have granted that permission without realizing it, before Android tweaked how its permissions work. When friends can instantly pay you back for dinner with the Cash app and all you have to do is tell it your account info, is it a small price to pay? There were contacts included in the data list that I didn't talk to anymore. Prior to the approval for joining the platform these third-party apps have been evaluated by Facebook to ensure users' safety.

"Instead, the FHA aims to ensure that applicants or prospective tenants (prospects) and current tenants don't get treated differently because of certain characteristics or attributes they have", legal experts at the site write.

From a professional perspective, the young executive uses Paperless Post, which offers an email-based alternative to the typical Facebook event when trying to do something small-scale and fairly private.
