By Eric Jaffe 6 minute Read The firing of Jill Abramson from the New York Times brought renewed attention to the topic of gender workplace bias, at least for a fleeting cultural moment.
Privacy issues[ edit ] Widening exposure of member information —12[ edit ] Inthe Electronic Frontier Foundation identified two personal information aggregation techniques called "connections" and "instant personalization".
They demonstrated that anyone could get access to information saved to a Facebook profile, even if the information was not intended to be made public. As soon as you visit the sites in the pilot program Yelp, Pandora, and Microsoft Docs the sites can access your name, your picture, your gender, your current location, your list of friends, all the Pages you have Liked—everything Facebook classifies as public information.
A visitor to the site copied, published and later removed the code from his web forum, claiming he had been served and threatened with legal notice by Facebook. It was not a security breach and did not compromise user data in any way. Because the code that was released powers only Facebook user interface, it offers no useful insight into the inner workings of Facebook.
The reprinting of this code violates several laws and we ask that people not distribute it further. An informative notice about this action appeared on the third party site and gave the user the opportunity to cancel it, and the user could also cancel it on Facebook.
Originally if no action was taken, the information was automatically published. On November 29 this was changed to require confirmation from the user before publishing each story gathered by Beacon.
Separately, before Facebook can determine whether the user is logged in, some data may be transferred from the participating site to Facebook. In those cases, Facebook does not associate the information with any individual user account, and deletes the data as well.
Some Facebook members still feel that the ability to opt out of the entire News Feed and Mini-Feed system is necessary, as evidenced by a statement from the Students Against Facebook News Feed group, which peaked at overmembers in Everyone, Friends of Friends, or Friends Only.
Users can now hide each status update from specific people as well. Cooperation with government requests[ edit ] Government and local authorities rely on Facebook and other social networks to investigate crimes and obtain evidence to help establish a crime, provide location information, establish motives, prove and disprove alibis, and reveal communications.
This may include sharing information with other companies, lawyers, courts or other government entities". Congress has failed to meaningfully amend the ECPA to protect most communications on social-networking sites such as Facebook, and since the U.
Facebook now reports the number of requests it receives for user information from governments around the world. Facebook agreed to comply with some, but not all, of her recommendations.
Deactivating an account allows it to be restored later, while deleting it will remove the account "permanently", although some data submitted by that account "like posting to a group or sending someone a message" will remain. A Facebook representative explained to a student from the University of British Columbia that users had to clear their own accounts by manually deleting all of the content including wall posts, friends, and groups.
This particular phenomenon has been documented at a number of schools. She used the hole to import custom CSS and demonstrate how the platform could be used to violate privacy rules or create a worm.
Facebook quitters were found to be more concerned about privacy, more addicted to the Internet, and more conscientious. National Journal Daily claims "Facebook is facing new scrutiny over its decision to automatically turn on a new facial recognition feature aimed at helping users identify their friends in photos".
Under European law Facebook Ireland is the "data controller" for facebook. Some of the information not included was "likes", data about the new face recognition function, data about third party websites that use "social plugins" visited by users and information about uploaded videos.
Currently the group claims that Facebook holds at least 84 data categories about every user. In an interview with the Irish Independent a spokesperson said that the DPC will "go and audit Facebook, go into the premises and go through in great detail every aspect of security".
He continued by saying: This report was not legally binding but suggested changes that Facebook should undertake until July A small fraction of the code that displays Facebook web pages was exposed to a small number of users due to a single misconfigured web server that was fixed immediately.
