22 Nov Ex-Facebook Privacy Manager: Company Not Interested in Protecting User Data
Ex-Facebook privacy manager Sandy Parakilas recently criticized the Zuckerberg-led company for prioritizing data collection over the protection of its user’s data.
In his New York Times opinion piece, Parakilas revealed that Facebook’s business model did not give it any incentives to police the misuse of user data. He added that the company only cares about negative press and the involvement of regulators.
Facebook’s VP of Global Operations responded to Parakilas’ accusations and said that while it was fair to criticize the company’s enforcement of developer policies five years ago, it is untrue to say that the company doesn’t care about user privacy.
