Facebook error affected user data
With the acceleration of digitalization, the world’s most valuable source has become data. Therefore, user data is now more valuable to companies than many sources.
Facebook, which often came to the agenda on the grounds that it could not secure the user data, was involved in another scandal. Information about this error was shared in a new blog post by Facebook.
With the detected error, it was learned that 90 days after the users stopped using the application, the user data continued to be shared with the developers. With this statement, Facebook has acknowledged the user data violation that it claims is due to error. Sharing user data with nearly 5,000 developers even after 90 days has brought up the issue of Facebook’s reliability.
It is stated that the information shared with the developers includes basic data such as language and gender. In a statement made by Facebook, it was stated that a transparent policy will be followed to protect user data. It is also stated that developers have an important share in protecting this data.
