Urgent: Facebook announces new measures to protect user data

On the background of the Cambridge Analytica case, which we talked about yesterday, Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg issued a statement shortly to explain the circumstances of the case, saying initially that he was late in issuing the statement to try to understand what happened and how it happened and how to ensure not to repeat it.

Zuckerberg said Facebook has a responsibility to protect users' data or not to serve them so it admits that it has made mistakes in some things but will do much to fix the error.

"What happened to developer Alexander Kogan and Cambridge Analytics is a breach of trust between Facebook and users, so Facebook will do everything in its power to try to fix what is happening and restore people's trust," Mark said.

New measures that Facebook will adopt starting today

  • Facebook will investigate all applications that it has. It will conduct a full review of any application that carries out suspicious activities. Facebook will block any application to agree to a comprehensive review. The ban includes any developer who misused user data and inform users of any platform or application.
  • Facebook will restrict data access to developers to the maximum extent to prevent any other types of abuse. For example, we will remove developers' access to your data if you do not use their application within 3 months. Facebook will reduce the data obtained by the application when you log in to the profile picture name, and the email address only.
  • Facebook will inform the user of the applications that were allowed to access its information in April. Facebook will also develop a special tool that will show the applications and platforms that you have subscribed to through your Facebook account with an easy way to unsubscribe and cancel access permissions for your account and data. Prominent for easy access.
In the end, Zuckerberg confirmed the responsibility of Facebook for what happened and apologized, stressing that what happened should not be repeated and that they learned from this experience.

Facebook is under investigation for the Cambridge Analytica case

Against the backdrop of the Cambridge Analytica case, the US Federal Trade Commission has opened investigations with Facebook to check violations of personal data of users of the network in violation of the decree issued in 2011 for privacy of users.

The story began when UK-based Cambridge Analytica obtained the personal data of about 50 million users and analyzed and used it for President Trump campaign.

How did the company get this data?

The application's founder, Alexander Kogan, took advantage of the large number of registrants and collected data such as name, age, city and stuff they liked and then sold it to Cambridge Analytica to be targeted with ads that contributed to President Trump's victory. Elections.

After discovering the matter, Facebook banned the Cambridge Analytica page and the company itself announced in an official statement that it had deleted all the data it had received after it learned that the receipt of such data was a breach of Facebook's terms of service.

The issue is still burning as Facebook shares fell on Monday by about 7% on the stock market amid demands from some members of the US Senate in the presence of Mark Zuckerberg personally to testify and clarification and the announcement of the European Union's desire to investigate this issue, which violates the rights and privacy of citizens.

In the midst of these events, everyone awaits the results of the investigation by the Federal Trade Commission, in the event that the company is guilty of this, it may incur fines up to thousands of dollars per day for each violation.

WebOS is now an Open source platform. LG Press Release.

Evolution of LG WebOS.

The WebOS  platform was originaly developed by Palm in a great effort to make new smartphones and tablets for the internet age. Palm made several Palm smartphones as PalmPre and one tablet called the TouchPad made by HP but they were not succesful. 

However the software platform is the pioneer of many features of what you see and use on any iPhone or Android smartphone at this time.

HP bought Palm WebOS and sold it to LG who started to implement it on Smarts TV until now and keep going. LG made some smartwatches with WebOS to attend some cars makers companies like Audi, but did not go out with great volumens of  them for the consumer.

Now LG wants to go beyond the Smart TVs, refrigerators  and is offering WebOS as an Open Source to the public, encouraging you to make it work on new products as smartwatches, robots,  laptops, tablets etc as you can notice on the  above picture and here below.

Press Release:

As part of a broader effort to make webOS even more accessible to today’s consumers and industries, LG Electronics (LG) entered into a memorandum of understanding (MOU) with a federal government body to more actively advance its philosophy of open platform, open partnership and open connectivity.

The National IT Industry Promotion Agency (NIPA) is the governmental body within South Korea’s Ministry of Science and ICT (Information and Communication Technology) responsible for developing the country’s IT sector.

LG will solicit webOS business proposals from hundreds of start-ups recommended by NIPA and shortlist the most viable ones to provide logistical and technical support with commercialization as the ultimate goal. With LG’s backing, startups will take part in international events such as Open Source Summit and OSCON to share their ideas and initiatives with other industry influencers.

Toward its goal of expanding the webOS global footprint, LG developed an open source version of its platform, webOS Open Source Edition, now available to the public at

Developers can download the source code free as well as taking advantage of related tools, guides and forums on the site to become more familiar with webOS and its inherent benefits as a smart devices platform. And because webOS is a Linux-kernel-based multitasking OS with support for HTML5 and CSS3, webOS will be quite familiar to even new developers.

“When LG adopted webOS for our popular smart TV lineup in 2013, it did so with the knowledge that webOS had tremendous potential,” said Dr. I.P. Park, Chief Technology Officer at LG Electronics. “webOS has come a long way since then and is now a mature and stable platform ready to move beyond TVs to join the very exclusive group of operating systems that have been successfully commercialization at such a mass level. As we move from an app-based environment to a web-based one, we believe the true potential of webOS has yet to be seen.”
