Facebook Announces New "Clear History" Feature To Delete Your Browsing History

Facebook Announces New

Facebook is launching a feature dubbed Clear History and perhaps the most shocking item is that it wasn't there before.

"This is going to be for building real, long-term relationships, not just hook-ups", Zuckerberg said as he unveiled the plans at Facebook's annual developers conference.

British lawmakers may issue a summons ordering Facebook chief executive Mark Zuckerberg to answer questions before Parliament about the Cambridge Analytica data scandal, the chair of U.K. House of Commons' Digital, Culture, Media and Sport Committee said Tuesday. This feature will enable you to see the websites and apps that send us information when you use them, delete this information from your account, and turn off our ability to store it associated with your account going forward.

"We designed this with privacy and safety in mind", said Zuckerberg. Tinder users, for example, weren't able to sign into the app after Facebook updated its developer frameworks in the name of data privacy last month.

Atlantic Equities analyst James Cordwell said there was "significant potential for Facebook to be a big problem for Match", but one that was dependent on execution over the long term. But he added the goal is to put more power into its users' hands to determine what they want to share.

"What happened with Cambridge Analytica was a major breach of trust", said Zuckerberg.

He also said that the company was slow to identify the ways Russian Federation had used the platform to interfere in the 2016 elections, but that his team would never be unprepared again.

On the virtual reality front, Zuckerberg announced that the Oculus Go, a standalone VR headset, starts shipping Tuesday.

With the proliferation of dating apps and the amount of information it has on users, it's no surprise that Facebook, after 14 years in existence, is jumping into the pool of helping people connect. romantically.

Several developers decided against attending the F8 conference this year to boycott Facebook's latest changes, according to The New York Times.

Following a hard year Mark Zuckerberg took the opportunity at the F8 Developer Conference to lay down the Facebook's plans to tackle serious problems like fake news and data security.

The founder of the network has told that will make to increase security. As Facebook's recent scandals have shown, the company tends to underestimate how bad actors can manipulate its service, so people will have to take Zuckerberg's word that the company built the dating service while anticipating how personal data could potentially be leaked.
