f Facebook in front of the EU parliament: We accept smart regulation, GDPR umme

Mark Zuckerberg’s speech to members of the European Parliament was public. And hurry up. Mark Zuckerberg was not only interested in the scandal that most socially haunted the world in the last few months. MEPs were also interested in the GDPR, wall profiles and taxes. You could watch Penos on Technet.cz.

Zuckerberg’s speech was originally supposed to take place behind the closed two, but pressure from only the parliament and the public eventually led to a collision between the Speaker of the EU Parliament and Zuckerberg.

The questions were both on the body. Belgian MEP Guy Verhofstadt, for example, asked Zuckerberg: Is Facebook ready to pay compensation to European users for misusing their data?

Slyen was filled for the period from 18:20 to 19:30 of Central European time (it lasted until 19:50) and you could also watch it on Technet.cz. In addition to live video, we offered online commentary.

Penos lasted almost half an hour. Formt heard was somewhat neastn. All the questions of the MEPs present were put on arrest, and Mark Zuckerberg had to ask for them and then gradually commented on them at the end. .

I don’t like the new distopic world that Mr. Zuckerberg serves here, Guy Verhofstadt from Belgium was angry with you, which was clear that Zuckerberg wouldn’t be able to do his job. The chairman, Antonio Tajani, assured the Honorable Member that Mr Zuckerbergadodaten had given written answers.

Nobody wants Falen at first

A number of questions from the current MEPs were addressed at first (so-called fake news). No one wants to falen the information, it’s clear to Zuckerberg. According to it, there are three categories:

  1. Spam – An economically motivated falen at first. eenm is to take these distributors away from advertising profits.
  2. Falen you – often useful to en falench at first, including political. Facebook therefore increased the intensity and speed of the fight against the phenomena. Today, the number of falenches is in TV units, Zuckerberg thinks.
  3. Dobr mysl – Someone is untrue, but with a good mind. We want to be careful here, we don’t want to tell anyone what’s right and what’s wrong, Zuckerberg assured. However, with regard to the first, which several independent fact-checking services described as untrue, Facebook added a first warning and a link to more information (in 2016, Facebook introduced a similar measure, which it later modified).

Zuckerberg acknowledges that there must be some regulation: But this regulation must allow the emergence of new technologies and not prevent the emergence of new companies and new products, such as the one I developed as a student years ago in college.

Wall profiles remain for safety reasons

And what about wall profiles? asked Syed Kamall of Britain. What if I don’t have a Facebook profile? How can a non-Facebook user prevent Facebook from using their data.

Wall profiles are definitely technically interesting. Zuckerberg answered in the past and then had to correct his answer slightly: actually collect information about non-users, but it is for the safety of these non-users.

We have announced a tool for history, Zuckerberg replied to the strings.

Today at our F8 conference I’m going to discuss a new privacy control we’re building called “Clear History”.

In your web browser, you have a simple way to clear your cookies and history. The idea is a lot of sites need cookies to work, but you should still be able to flush your history whenever you want. We’re building a version of this for Facebook too. It will be a simple control to clear your browsing history on Facebook — what you’ve clicked on, websites you’ve visited, and so on.

However, Zuckerberg did not respond satisfactorily to the question of wall profiles – in fact, he acknowledged that, for security reasons, it was not possible for anyone who was not a Facebook user to delete data about Facebook in those wall profiles. And a very rd peel to gave the father about Cambridge Analytica, which shows how much he wanted to change the darkness.

Sorry and the public barbecue on Facebook continues

Mark Zuckerberg has made several similar appearances, including a seven-hour barbecue by American Sentors, and a few times in front of the House of Representatives.

Leaving aside the unpreparedness of some of the interviewers, Zuckerberg’s revenge robotic performance, and a certain political theatricality, this performance was quite interesting. For example, we learned more about the so-called wall profiles (that is, profiles that Facebook created for people who do not have a profile on Facebook), because because of GDPR, Facebook has changed around the world.

Members of the European Parliament have, of course, also been involved in the European legislation of the GDPR. Zuckerberg wrote in April: Nekej, eu we meet the requirements of the GDPR. So he asks a logical question: Do you, before the entry into force of the GDPR, meet the requirements of Facebook?

On Facebook, he worked hard to be fully compatible with GDPR. Also from May 25, we will be in full compliance with this legislation, said Zuckerberg. They even thought they had done more than the legislation wanted. From May 25, all European users will have to go through a question and consent in order to use the service.

Is Facebook ready to pay European users compensation for misusing their data? asked Guy Verhofstadt from Belgium. Zuckerberg did not have time to answer this – undoubtedly unpleasant – question, but he promised that the answer was written to the deputies.

Protection of choices and user data

In addition, there were a number of questions about the scandal surrounding Cambridge Analytica and other companies, which may have misused user data for political marketing and other clm (including the Czech Republic, where the day worked for the Russian oil company Lukoil). British Laborist Claude Moraes asked if the addition of blocking 200 applications due to breaches of the rules did not clearly indicate that Facebook had failed to protect the privacy of its users? So this question remained without a pm answer. Of course, Zuckerberg repeated the bag right at the arrest, apologizing: It is clear that we did not take the appropriate measures. We weren’t gotten responsible. It’s my fault. I apologize for that.

New applications that work on Facebook will be subject to much stricter rules: Now, when you use an application on Facebook, this non-Facebook application will only have access to basic data. And if you don’t use this application for msce, then the application will also lose this access, said Zuckerberg.

Dal’s problem, which Zuckerberg came up with, is the way Facebook was abused by Russian propaganda with the help of a falench profile and a website. At the time of the US election in 2016, we were not prepared for the misinforman operations that we know were taking place today. We will be much more careful in the future. We are now stuck together and responding to threats immediately. Let’s develop new technologies – including intelligence – to eliminate falpenes.

Jan Phillip Albrecht, the European Parliament’s rapporteur for the GDPR, logically asked about the protection of personal data. Tell me and other WhatsApp and Facebook users that their data will not be shared between the two services? But this question remained unanswered.

Is Facebook a neutral platform?

Philippe Lamberts, a representative of Zelench from Belgium, covered Zuckerberg with binary holes. The most interesting will probably be: is Facebook a neutrln platform, or is it a content producer? This response will have a real impact on the legislation that Facebook regulates (not only, but mainly) in the USA (so-called Section 230). So far, Zuckerberg has avoided the answer.

Nigel Farage’s questions from Great Britain then laughed at the ideological burden. He first praised Facebook for allowing other, not mainstream media, unexpected political moments, such as Brexit (Farage fought for Britain’s withdrawal from the EU) or the election of Trump. However, Farage stated that he believes that Facebook has recently discriminated against opinions to the right of the center (where Farage sweats himself, the American Republic, etc.).

Farage Zuckerberg criticizes anyone who decides what to talk about and not. Who are the aunts who offer the fact-checking?

The hunt for falen at first is now in md. But isn’t this an uiten utterance that will lead to restrictions on freedom of speech? French politician Nicolas Bay joined Farago.

Zuckerberg replied as expected: It is very important to me that we have a debate on the political spectrum. Personally, I promise that we do not judge and will not judge the content on the basis of political opinions.

As for Farag’s objection that the visibility of some sites is declining, Zuckerberg – probably the first one – pointed out that the population has declined in recent months, not just the Conservative ones: from the user. This turns out to be a glue for the user. If people use Facebook and see it only at first, they are not so happy. Overall, this has led to all the first pages and pages being displayed on Facebook.

Should there be any regulation of social networks? Zuckerberg again acknowledges yes: However, this regulation must allow the emergence of new technologies and not prevent the emergence of new companies and new products, such as the one I developed as a student years ago in college.
