On Monday, Facebook revealed that about 271,469 data belonging to Nigerians on Facebook, whose friends would have installed the "This is Your Digital Life" app, were exposed to the Cambridge Analytica data breach. The document that has been filed late on Friday, Facebook said it had spent $7.3 million in personal security costs and $1.5 million on personal use of private aircraft by Zuckerberg in 2017.
The way in which Facebook gets and tracks non-user data is primarily through online advertising. Facebook, which pushed for the cases to be considered individually instead of as a class-action lawsuit, is reviewing the ruling.
"We hope this update, similar to the ones we've been making recently, will help people navigate Facebook more easily so they can continue to connect with the people, Pages and Groups they log on to see". This possibility was not lost on Donato, who stated in his ruling that damages could "amount to billions of dollars". Facebook Social Plugins such as Like and Share buttons are used by third-party apps and websites to make the site appear more social and also help share the website's content on the Facebook.
"While third party fact checking is part of our ongoing efforts to combat spread of false news, we are working hard to improve the accuracy of information on Facebook in various ways", it added.

Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg had last week in a series of hearing in US Congress had answered over 500 questions from Senators over privacy and data protection at Facebook.
"Whether it's information from apps and websites, or information you share with other people on Facebook, we want to put you in control - and be transparent about what information Facebook has and how it is used", Baser said. I had hoped my questions would give you an opportunity to further clarify this critical issue.

As per the developers, the new changes are targeted at centralising a variety of controls that were earlier previously located in other places, such as Account Settings, Privacy Shortcuts, News Feed Preferences, Activity Log and Payments Settings.
One of the more troubling aspects of the scandal is that Facebook couldn't even determine how many users had their data accessed and where they were located.
Facebook does not present you with its information policies outright; you have to look for them.
These leaks confirmed the many fears most of us have on what Facebook actually does with the data it collects from users.
From the moment Mark Zuckerberg began to read his opening statement, you knew he wasn't going to change Facebook. "This would apply to other services beyond Facebook because, as mentioned, it is standard to how the internet works".
The Federal Trade Commission and British regulators are justifiably investigating Facebook's data gathering and sharing activities, but 37 states' attorneys general, who no doubt are prowling for votes and prospecting for another big tort settlement, have jumped into what should be a federal and worldwide regulatory issue.
