Facebook suspends ties with Canada's AggregateIQ

US Sen. Ed Markey

The development immediately follows backlash against the company that it deleted messages its CEO Mark Zuckerberg sent in the past to people with whom he was communicating on Messenger.

On Friday, Facebook announced it will also require advertisers who want to run "issue ads" - not endorsing particular candidates or parties but discussing political topics - to verify who pays for them and where the advertiser is based. The Sony messages included disparaging remarks about movie stars and other people in the entertainment industry. "AggregateIQ works in full compliance within all legal and regulatory requirements in all jurisdictions where it operates".

According to multiple reports, Facebook sent a doctor to several US hospitals in the hopes of convincing them to share patient data with the social media giant. Now that Zuckerberg's secret is exposed, the social media giant is planning to appease users by rolling out an unsend feature to its platform. He said the messages were "basically telling the Muslims, 'Hey, there's about to be an uprising of the Buddhists, so make sure that you are armed and go to this place.' And then the same thing on the other side". Finally, it declined to say whether messages will disappear automatically as Zuckerberg's did or via a user-set timer.

But when the company discovered the problem, she said, executives relied on the consulting firm's assurances that it had deleted the data. Facebook didnt elaborate on how the feature would work and said the feature is still being planned. This is a one-day boycott of Facebook and its associated apps including Messenger, WhatsApp and Instagram. We started testing the authorisation process this week, and people will begin seeing the label and additional information in the United States later this spring, it said. It was only until Tech Crunch told Facebook it had proof that it deleted messages that it actually came forward with its plans to launch such a feature. Still, Facebook users will no doubt be pleased to - eventually - be able to remove messages they change their minds about.

In addition, the users could call off their applications synced with Facebook and also the third-party access to their applications totally. The social network has promised to not unsend any more of Zuckerberg's messages until the feature is available for all users. This may take some time. "We should have done this sooner - and we're sorry that we did not", the spokesperson added.
