Facebook users fear how their private data is used (and compromised) as Facebook founder and CEO Mark Zuckerberg testifies before the House Committee. Spectrum News interviewed Sterling Technology Solutions CEO, Tom Blanchard for an IT Security Expert’s perspective on data security.
When the news broke about how Facebook mishandled users data, it came as a shock to most of us on just how much data BIG Facebook collect. What is more shocking is the level of access Facebook allows others to have for the right price. The Sterling staff immediately downloaded and evaluated what data Facebook had on us. The results were exactly as reported by the news. We too were surprised at how much data Facebook had on us.
You too can see what that data looks like. Here is a link with instructions from Facebook on how to download your Facebook Profile Archive: https://www.facebook.com/help/131112897028467
A couple things to keep in mind. First, the download may take a little while depending on how long you have been on Facebook and how much data was collected on you. Second, you should view your data via the index file but you can also navigate through the various folders and files.
