Web poll: Are you going to delete your Facebook account?

Social media platform’s privacy practices have come under fire.

The Federal Trade Commission is investigating Facebook’s privacy practices following allegations a Trump-affiliated political consulting firm got data inappropriately from millions of Facebook users, including nearly 700,000 Canadians.

Facebook’s privacy practices have come under fire after revelations that Cambridge Analytica got data on Facebook users, including information on friends of people who had downloaded a psychological quiz app, even though those friends hadn’t given explicit consent to sharing.

Facebook is also facing questions over reports that it collected had years of contact names, telephone numbers, call lengths and information about text messages from Android users.
