What was the Facebook blog post released in March by Mark Zuckerberg about?
The blog focused on what the Facebook staff needs to do in order to make Facebook feel private and trusted by its users. This includes changes with private interactions, reducing permanence, and feel secure about their data storage and private interactions.
What triggers an ad to pop up coincidently on your social media feed of a store you just visited, even if it’s the first time ?
Katie Bindley, one of the reports, tested her theory of why ads pop up to things relevant in our lives. She started looking up random stuff outside of her targeted demographics, men's items, urns, and pregnancy. It wasn't until she downloaded a pregnancy app that she began seeing ads. Within half a day, she saw an ad about pregnancy, even when she turned off her iOS ad tracking.
What changes will need to be made for Facebook to be trusted again Will anything change?
Ultimately, Facebook doesn’t need to know or keep our data in messages to know what we say, where we’re going, or what we’re buying. All this will continue to be tracked by any app we download if we give permission. Then, that data will be ingested by Facebook ads engine.
