  • FIXING’ FB Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg has been requested by a U.K. parliamentary committee to answer questions on fake news in the investigation into Cambridge Analytica’s alleged improper use of Facebook information

Facebook's reputation took another hit this week, with the revelation that the company sent a doctor on a secret mission to top usa hospitals, to try and convince them to share private patient data. "We did so in full compliance with our legal obligations to preserve messages".

The timing coincides with all the criticism that Facebook has gotten along with the Cambridge Analytica scandal.

Facebook hasn't announced an exact date for this functionality to become available, but said that it's hoping to role it out in the coming months. And, as TechCrunch pointed out, Facebook's terms of service don't appear to give the company the right to "tamper with users' private message threads".

In an interview on Thursday with Bloomberg television where she apologized for the handling of the data issue, Sandberg said "a few advertisers" had paused their spending. Sheryl Sandberg, the Chief Operation Officer (CEO) at Facebook and second in command after founder-owner Mark Zuckerberg, said that the company is doing audits, but cautioned that more data breaches could surface.

Trump Promises Long Term Wins Over China With Tariffs
Meanwhile, Trump said the spat with China may hurt the markets in the short term, but America will emerge stronger from it. The Chinese list included soybeans, the biggest United States export to China, and aircraft up to 45 tons in weight.

WhatsApp has already implemented a similar feature a year ago, allowing someone to erase their message within an allotted timeframe. "We are now trying to do that", Sandberg also said.

Sandberg said Facebook also should have been more proactive in dealing with Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election.

It could be a survey, a game or another application that allows users a single sign-on with their Facebook log-in. The social network has promised to not unsend any more of Zuckerberg's messages until the feature is available for all users. It already has a similar function in Messenger's secret message feature, where messages automatically delete with on a timer that users can set, the company said.

As to why Facebook "took so long" to address the Cambridge Analytica data breach, which was first reported in 2015, Sandberg told NBC "we thought that the data had been deleted". "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.
