Told the Federal Trade Commission that social media companies need clear guidance on how they can comply with the new law and give consumers the right to transfer data without infringing on users’ privacy. < / P > < p > regulators in Europe and California have ruled that consumers have the right to collect personal information and transfer it to a new website. The law, known as the “data portability law,” aims to give people the right to choose different products, thus intensifying the market competition faced by giants such as Facebook. But on Facebook, each user’s data is intertwined with the data of their friends and family through tags of photos, posts and locations. On Friday, Facebook submitted an official comment to the Federal Trade Commission asking regulators to explain how social media companies can make data portable without violating privacy rules and penalties. The request comes ahead of the Federal Trade Commission’s September Seminar on the subject. “The last time we tried to do this on a large scale, we put Cambridge analytics on the stage of history,” said Bijan madhani, Facebook privacy and public policy manager. We want to make sure that we are very clear about our obligations. ” < / P > < p > Facebook paid a $5 billion settlement to the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) in 2019. The reason is that some users signed up for a personality test app, and then the data of users and their friends were transferred to a third-party developer, who in turn transferred it to Cambridge analytics, a political consultancy, in violation of Facebook’s privacy obligations. < p > < p > Facebook sometimes faces conflicting regulatory pressures on antitrust and privacy issues. Facebook has a huge application network of more than 3 billion users, and has become a giant in advertising with this data base. Facebook has always faced monopoly charges, and data portability is a potential solution. But privacy laws require Facebook to obtain the explicit consent of users before transferring data to a third party, which often reinforces the company’s market position. < / P > < p > Facebook is working on a project to allow users to transfer their photos to Google photo. Mr. madhani said Facebook had been discussing similar projects with other companies, but it was difficult to get the industry to agree on the infrastructure, the format and the type of data that should be transferred. Should Facebook include the date, time, and location for the transfer of photos, or will the transmission of this information exceed users’ expectations? Should people be allowed to transmit photos that have been marked for other people? If the data is leaked after transmission, whose fault is it? < p > < p > in its comments to the FTC, Facebook asked that whatever decisions regulators make, they should comply with existing laws, such as the general data protection regulations in Europe.
