Facebook wanted hospitals to share patient data

Facebook had discussions with several health organizations, including Stanford Medical School and American College of Cardiology, about signing the data-sharing agreement, CNBC said.

In a statement, a Facebook spokesperson said the company does not listen to voice or video calls.

In a post early Friday morning, TechCrunch reported that multiple users found old Facebook Messenger texts sent to them by Zuckerberg had mysteriously gone missing. Those changes included limiting the retention period for Mark's messages in Messenger. "We did so in full compliance with our legal obligations to preserve messages". "We'll have more than 20,000 by the end of this year". On the PC, his profile doesn't show a button to add him as a friend, while on the mobile the button is grayed out and disabled, notes TechCrunch.

"With this in mind, a year ago Facebook began discussions with leading medical institutions, including the American College of Cardiology and the Stanford University School of Medicine, to explore whether scientific research using anonymised Facebook data could help the medical community advance our understanding in this area". Following the Sony hack, emails of Sony's president Michael Lynton who sat on Snap Inc's board were exposed, revealing secret acquisitions and strategy. There have been a number of important elections since then where these new tools have been successfully deployed.We have also significantly increased our investment in security.

Other changes incorporate some of the restrictions Facebook previously announced on what third-party apps can collect from users and their friends.

More news: Facebook data leak impacted 87 million users

Many companies are looking for two possible steps to take in the wake of the Cambridge Analytica fiasco- whether the scandal will spark off a massive user exodus and whether the tighter and stricter data safeguard that Facebook is planning will put a limit on the advertisers' ability to effectively target users.

The permission process will come as a shock to Facebook users because it will force Facebook to tell them exactly what data it holds on them and who it shares that data with; and it will force users to examine whether they want that level of information sharing to continue.

In March the UN's special rapporteur to Myanmar Yanghee Lee said Facebook had morphed into a "beast" and had incited "a lot of violence and a lot of hatred against the Rohingya or other ethnic minorities".

Mr Zuckerberg, who will testify about the scandal next week in front of committees in the US House and Senate, may face calls from legislators for more oversight.

The Ministry of Electronics and IT (Meity) said that a notice seeking details relating to breach of data from Facebook had been sent to Cambridge Analytica particularly with regard to reports in the media about questionable practices attributed to the UK-based firm in their efforts to influence elections.
