On June 13, according to foreign media reports, social networking giant Facebook told the US Senate that the company has launched a privacy design lab and will work to improve the way people share personal data.
This laboratory is named TTC Laboratory. Mark Zuckerberg, CEO of Facebook, testified at the US Congress hearing in April this year that lawmakers allegedly raised more than 2,000 questions. In a written response to these issues, Facebook stated that the original intention of the TTC lab was to establish that Facebook “recognized the need to improve the transparency of data for all digital services”, and that it needed to collaborate with academia, design, and industry. People cooperation.
Facebook wrote on page 146 of the written reply report that the lab is “to explore new and more people-centered best practices for people to understand how their data is used by digital services and to The way they think it is easy to understand is controlled. ".
TTC is an acronym for Trust, Transparency, and Control, headquartered in Dublin, Ireland. TTC Labs was initiated and supported by Facebook. There are currently more than 60 other organizations involved, but it does not list the names of other parties.
Facebook did not immediately reply to the request for more information. The company has recently received new criticism because Facebook’s urging users to agree to the European “General Data Protection Regulations” (GDPR) steps is too hasty, which allows Facebook to easily persuade users to continue to agree that they collect data and continue to use social networking applications. .
