Facebook Is Adding an Unsend Message Tool After Controversy

"To this day, we still don't know what data Cambridge Analytica have", Sandberg told the Financial Times in a separate interview. Facebook had it turned on by default.

"But I think we got the balance wrong", she said, adding, "I think we were very idealistic and not rigorous enough and then there's the possible misuse". "That, to me, was the failure".

Cambridge Analytica said in a statement on Thursday (Australian time) it had data for only 30 million people. The company said earlier this week that it scans content in the Messenger app to track abuse.

AggregateIQ was not immediately available for a comment.

In his call with reporters Wednesday, Zuckerberg said the company had tried "rate limiting" the searches. This is important because normal users of Facebook cannot unsend messages, outside of encrypted chats (which can optionally have a message expiration timer). But Zuckerberg said the scrapers circumvented that defense by cycling through multiple IP addresses.

After facing mammoth controversy over its users' data breach via British political analytics firm Cambridge Analytica, the Facebook CEO is expected to testify before two Congressional committees next week. That includes full name, profile picture and listings of school or workplace networks. They're people who use Facebook, so are investors.

Facebook will also require those who look after pages with a "large number" of followers to also be verified, but it has not stated what this number would be.

While Facebook has revealed that it is indeed working on the "Unsend" feature, it has not described how would the feature work.

In the lead-up to the hearings, Facebook has scrambled to respond to increased scrutiny from the journalists and the public over its privacy practices.

That fallout includes lawsuits, a 14 percent drop in the Menlo Park company's shares since the privacy scandal broke in mid-March, and questions and investigations from its users, lawmakers and regulators.

The company has tried to simplify its settings multiple times over the years, most recently this week.

Some see this as a sort of cover-up where Facebook can say it was testing a feature and that it will now be given to all users. Facebook said that the feature exists for corporate security reasons related to the Sony hack of 2014, but it yet feels elitist, especially in the light of broader critiques of the privacy practices of the company.
