Facebook releases over 450 pages of answers to Senators' questions - TechSpot

'One of the most controversial issues is Facebook’s “shadow profiles”—information it collects on non-users from other websites. '

'Many of Facebook’s other answers in the documents fail to reveal anything new or are incredibly vague. '

'In the written follow up, Snapchat, YouTube, Twitter, Pinterest, Vimeo, and others are named as rivals, though it’s hard to see any of those as real alternatives. '

'The company said that it doesn’t create profiles for non-users, "nor do we use browser and app logs for non-Facebook users to show targeted ads from our advertisers to them or otherwise seek to personalize the content they see."'

'Explaining what kind of user data it monitors, Facebook writes that it tracks “operations and behaviors” on devices, including “whether a window is foregrounded or backgrounded, or mouse movements (which can help distinguish humans from bots).” It also records every IP address when a user logs into the platform, though these are deleted “according to a retention schedule.”Facebook also said it was “generally open” to requirements that it informs users of a data breach within 72 hours but added that the situation was complicated in the US due to the lack of a central authority for reporting breaches.
