Recently, Meta announced that they will shut down the Facebook face recognition system as well as deleting all associated data. It seems like a good move, especially since the company’s CEO Mark Zuckerberg is trying to rebrand the company and give it a better view ahead of where they’ve been threatened with sanctions. secret.
However, Facebook post Frances Haugen thinks that governments should be suspicious of the company’s claims and that they should check carefully whether Facebook did what they said they were doing.
Haugen said, “I strongly urge government oversight. When they say we have removed this, what does that really mean. It needs to be much clearer on how these processes work to make sure they are followed. ” For those unfamiliar, Haugen is a broadcaster who has shared a wealth of data on Facebook and work within the company with the SEC and the Wall Street Journal.
That said, we don’t think we can be absolutely sure that Facebook did what they promised, so unless we see evidence to suggest otherwise, that’s all we can make it hope for another group to confirm, or take Facebook to their word.
