Facebook continues to deal with the Cambridge Analytica Scandal. He blames a ‘bug’ for keeping copies of deleted private videos of users on their servers.
Last month, Facebook appeared to be storing deleted videos. The company says the reason for this error is a ‘bug’ and promises to erase those videos. It also verified that deleted content is never ‘everyone else’s’, although it is unclear whether Facebook uses videos in any other way.
The company apologized to Donald Trump for creating a confidentiality scandal about the sale of personal data of 50 million users by a political company affiliated with the 2016 campaign.
Facebook claimed that a ‘bug’ caused the platform to save copies of videos deleted by users. Below you can see the pictures of a video that was posted on a user’s friend’s wall but then deleted by Facebook.
The Facebook spokesman told MailOnline about the event: “We’ve searched through a report that some people saw the old draft videos when they reached the information they got from the old information tool, discovered a bug that prevented them from deleting the draft videos, and we apologize for the inconvenience.”
After that, the company did not mention in any way how widespread the problem was and did not show whether there was a way to make sure the videos were removed.
This still pending situation is really suspicious. Well, what are your ideas about this? What does Facebook do with our personal videos?
