Facebook has been blamed many times for incidents of personal data violation by its users. On Wednesday, a platform spokesman said it was not right to blame Facebook for violating the privacy of users because there is no private life in social media.
"There is no breach of secrecy, because there is no secrecy," said platform adviser, Orin Snyder. This statement did so during one pre-trial hearing, in his attempt to reject a lawsuit related to the Cambridge Analytica scandal.
Η platform admitted that third-party companies had access to user data. However, he stressed that it is unreasonable for the world to believe there is privacy protection on Facebook or on any other social networking platform.
Meanwhile, this statement comes at a time when Facebook is trying to convince the world that it is doing everything it can to protect the privacy of users. Last month, Facebook's COO, Sheryl Sandberg, said that both CEO and CEO Mark Zuckerberg are doing everything in their power to enhance Facebook security.
Many have said they have to limit Zuckerberg's control over Facebook. More and more people are starting to support this, as the platform faces problems, and particularly issues, related to security and privacy.
The Federal Trade Commission is planning to impose fine 5 billion dollars on the most popular social networking platform, for its inability to protect the privacy of users.
Facebook was in a particularly awkward position after the Cambridge Analytica, 2018 scandal, as personal information of about 87 million users was violated. Since then, the data processing policies used by the platform are constantly being questioned.
