The Gigantic Sum Facebook Pays For Mark Zuckerberg's Personal Security

Facebook has spent $20M on Zuckerberg's security since 2015

Facebook comes under attack for tracking internet users who don't have a Facebook account

He gave a few tips on how to avoid losing Facebook information (contacts, messages and locations) to third party users in view of the recent Facebook data leakage of over 87 million users worldwide. Remember the firm has also been accused of meddling in Kenyans last two elections working for President Uhuru Kenyatta. 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.

Last week, Facebook CEO Mark Zucker appeared before the US Congress to shed light on this leaks. This, it added, improves the accuracy of information on Facebook and reduce misinformation. "While there is no maximum, high impact bug reports have garnered as much as $40,000 for people who bring them to Facebook's attention", Greene said. Baser said this data collection process is the same for any website or app, including YouTube, Google or Twitter, not just Facebook.

Amidst Facebook caught in the data breach scandal over mishandling its users data, which did come as a jolting shock to users, Mark Zuckerberg confirmed the social networking app collects data beyond the users imagination along with its offline data too.

"When you visit a site or app that uses our services, we receive information even if you're logged out or don't have a Facebook account", wrote David Baser, Facebook's product management director, in the blog post.

How can Facebook's troubles be good news for musicians and music marketers?

Suppose you are using any other website or app, most likely that website would be using one of the Facebook services be it the social plugins, Facebook logins, Facebook Analytics or Facebook ads and measurement tools.

The lawsuit is one of several seeking to hold companies such as Facebook liable for failing to police online speech. With rumors that Facebook was constantly listening through a smartphone microphone and adjusting advertisements based on what it overheard in conversation, the company has always been considered more than a little invasive. First: your data is being shared even when you're logged out of Facebook. "We also get information about which website or app you're using, which is necessary to know when to provide our tools". "Twitter, Pinterest and LinkedIn all have similar Like and Share buttons to help people share things on their services", he said. Unfortunately for the social network, none of those other companies admitted to letting a political data group exploit the personal information of millions of users. But under the Illinois Biometric Information Privacy Act of 2008, the companies could be fined $1,000 to $5,000 each time a person's image is used without consent. And while your friends are concerned about who got to use their profile data without permission, you gloat that your personal information is safe and remains out of the clutches of Facebook.
