Facebook to Face Angry Illinoisans Over Facial Recognition Tech

Following a successful test in December 2010, the function rolled out worldwide the next summer, making it easier for users to tag Facebook friends in photos.

The lawsuit, which was first filed in 2015, says Facebook broke the Illinois Biometric Information Privacy Act of 2008, which says a company must obtain written permission before scanning and storing one's biometrics, including the type of face-scanning technology Facebook uses to tag users in photos.

Up to 87 million Facebook users recently had their data, including birthdays, current cities and page likes, compromised by Cambridge Analytica, a political data firm hired by President Donald Trump's 2016 election campaign. "That's because Facebook is not a social media company; it is the largest data mining operation in existence". The lawsuit was originally filed back in 2015 by users in IL, accusing the social network of violating a law in the state that prohibits the collection of biometric info.

In turn, Facebook also got some details regarding the behavior of Bumblers, which now seems more important in the aftermath of the data collection scandal.

Ms Naughton also said Facebook still has questions to answer.

A group of users created a campaign called "Faceblock" for users to boycott Facebook on the day of Mark Zuckerberg's senate hearing, arguing that the site's users deserve better.

"While third party fact checking is part of our ongoing efforts to combat spread of false news, we are working hard to improve the accuracy of information on Facebook in various ways", it added. Both Verint and Terrogence have provided surveillance and spy technology to U.S. government bodies such as the NSA and the U.S. Navy as well as many other intelligence agencies. "Facebook is not only a social media giant, but also an worldwide business".

Roque said there's nothing wrong with the DDS' decision to shift to VK, saying they are free to do anything they want to express their sentiments over the Internet. When you contemplate face recognition that's everywhere, we have to think about what that's going to mean for us.
