As per the recent reports revealed, Facebook clarified that it can see everything that the users post as FB community can’t be able to stop the site operators from viewing its content. Whereas, the social-networking site has given an option to the individual user to regulate the information that the other people can view.
Matt Scutari, the Facebook’s Manager of Privacy and Public Policy said, “ Most of our competitors are also using the same strategy. With the online services, it’s a common sense that when you use those services to share information, you’re also sharing information with the company providing the service. Almost every online platform gathers user information to provide enhanced service.”
While attending the Palo Alto Conference on ‘Privacy Identity Innovation’, Scutari recommended the most conscious users, who always seems worried about networks using their data; “Frankly speaking, you might not want to share information with that platform.”
The Facebook employee was responding to an audience member’s question about the availability of tools that can stop Facebook from looking at a user’s posts. In short, Scutari revealed that such tools did not exist.
“Facebook is also experimenting with the way people could make purchases. Additionally, to the buy button that Facebook is testing in certain regions to permit individuals to buy things without departing the platform, it’s also focusing on new methods to make transactions easier and secure,” Egan added.
