Facebook: Zuckerberg Apologizes, Then Refuses UK Government Request
Mark Zuckerberg has apologized for the breach via the classic full-page newspaper ad format. He then promptly refused a request from the UK parliament to speak about the breach, instead opting to send either his chief technology officer and/or chief product officer. If it’s important enough for you to take out a full-page newspaper ad, it’s important enough for you to show up when the UK government asks, Mark.
Also, fresh evidence that Facebook has been harvesting data from Android devices over a long time has popped up. Facebook says that it does not sell this data.
Truly Social will keep you updated on the breach. Don't worry.

While this won’t kill the platform, it’s definitely going to hurt Snap’s shares and add to the worsening reputation of the brand.

Social Media: Girls Usage Doubles In 4 years
The number of girls using social media for more than 3 hours a day has doubled in just 4 years. In 2011/2012, 8.7% of 10 - 15-year-old girls used social media for more than three hours a day. In the 2015/2016 period, this number has leaped to 17.4%. While social is a great way to meet and interact with people your age, it can also be harmful or potentially dangerous for those who are too young. The best way to manage your child’s social media usage is to have open and honest conversations with them.
