Facebook will alert users if their data was shared in scandal

After admitting that it has been deleting CEO Mark Zuckerberg's old messages from people's inboxes, Facebook today said it plans to start letting all users retract messages they have sent on the platform.

"We know we were slow to pick-up foreign interference in the 2016 USA elections, Facebook said on reports that Russian agents bought ads or spread misinformation on its social media outlets during the presidential polls".

The Sony messages included critical remarks about movie stars and others in the entertainment industry. "We did so in full compliance with our legal obligations to preserve messages".

Instead, Facebook now says it will offer all users the ability to unsend messages in the next several months.

The social media behemoth is expected from Monday afternoon to notify the 87 million users worldwide whose data may have been unknowingly and "improperly" shared with the British political consulting agency.

The reason behind using this feature was to delete embarrassing messages from going viral around. Finally, it declined to say whether messages will disappear automatically as Zuckerberg's did or via a user-set timer.

Zuckerberg accepted responsibility this week for the failure to protect user data but maintained he was still the best person to lead the network of two billion users.

He also said that Facebook has built a tool to let anyone see all of the ads on a page for greater transparency.

At Carrara Sports Arena, Hubbard was second only to Australia's Deb Lovely-Acason in terms of crowd popularity when the athletes were introduced.

The firm used the information, without users' consent, to support the campaign for Britain's exit from the European Union, as well as the 2016 election campaign of US President Donald Trump.

Do you believe that Facebook Messenger was working on this feature and Mark Zuckerberg was essentially a "beta tester" for it? Still, Facebook users will no doubt be pleased to - eventually - be able to remove messages they change their minds about.

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", the spokesperson said.
