Zuckerberg on #deletefacebook: 'You know, it's not good'
From TechCrunch - March 21, 2018

Following what felt like years of silence on a plethora of issues, Facebookfounder and CEO Mark Zuckerberg has gone on an interview rampage (but not uswas it my editorial?). Although he mainly plugs away at the points he made in todays blog post, there are a few items worth noting.

Regarding the companys acceptance at face value that Cambridge Analyticahad deleted the data they werent supposed to have (to Recode):

At the time it didnt seem like we needed to go further on that. Given what we know now we clearly should have followed up and were never going to make that mistake again.

And what about the thousands of apps that may have performed similar data grabs during the many years it was possible?

The data isnt on our servers, so it would require us sending out forensic auditors to different apps.

How many apps are we talking about here? (to the New York Times)

It will be in the thousands.

Will the 50 million estimated to be affected by the data collected by Aleksandr Kogan be notified to what extent their data was shared?

Yes. Were going to tell anyone whose data may have been shared.
