Facebook’s getting a clear history button
« on: May 03, 2018, 09:34:11 PM »

In these days of post-Cambridge Analytica/Cubeyou privacy-stress disorder, privacy advocates, members of Congress and users have been telling Facebook that we want more than the ability to see what data it has on us.

We want a button to nuke it all to kingdom come.

Well, get ready: it’s in the works, due out in a few months. Mind you, analytics will still be foisted upon us, and Facebook will still share those analytics with apps and websites. The difference, the company says, is that it will strip our identifying information from the data.
