The day just passed seemed very easy for Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg (Mark Zuckerberg). He attended the VivaTechnology summit in Paris on Thursday. During the meeting, Zuckerberg enjoyed a wave of applause from the audience, and finally did not have to answer the tricky questions about the privacy of the politicians.
Although Cambridge Analytica's data leak problem is a topic that Facebook and Zuckerberg can't avoid in the near future, he did not mention the name of Cambridge Analytica at once on stage. In the past few months, all of Zuckerberg's work focused almost on issues such as CambridgeAnalytica, privacy protection, and little time to deal with other things.
During the meeting, Zuckerberg took the initiative to talk about the recent changes in data leakage to Facebook, but did not directly discuss the scandal itself. He also announced the next major personal project.
Previously, Zuckerberg's personal projects usually included learning Chinese, developing artificial intelligence housekeepers for his family, and meeting people in all parts of the United States. But now, his next plan is about the governance of Facebook.
This means that if the user's content is removed from the Facebook and they feel strongly dissatisfied with it, they can use this
Zuckerberg said he hoped he could
In fact, Zuckerberg first raised the issue in April when he interviewed Vox.
However, internal governance of Facebook is one thing, but external governance from European countries is also on the agenda. For example, the General Data Protection Regulation, a new rule of data protection (Data), which had been passed by the European Parliament for privacy protection, will be formally implemented in all EU member countries on May 25th.
The implementation of this regulation will change the operating mode of Facebook and other companies in the EU, and all companies that have contacts with EU citizens are subject to this law. If this regulation is violated, the company will face a huge fine of more than 4% or 20 million euros of global business income.
Therefore, large and small technology companies including Google and Facebook have revised their user policy clauses to meet the new regulations of the Ordinance.
Zuckerberg said it was not a big deal for Facebook to prepare for the coming into effect general data protection regulations because the company had already done his homework.
At the same time, Xiao Zai reiterated his views on the testimony of the European Parliament, saying that users should have full control over whether to delete their online data and history, but they also need to be prepared for the difference in the online experience after the data history has been deleted.
