scientists behind the quest says he is a scapegoat. you know what their interest was no i mean that's the thing i was pretty heavily siloed as far as anything as far as funder or clients i found out about donald trump just like everybody else or to give people more options than just like facebook founder mark zuckerberg broke days of silence on the scandal admitting the company had made mistakes. i started facebook and at the end of the day i'm responsible for what happens on our platform we will learn from this experience to secure our platform further and make our community safer for everyone going forward. he promised to make it easier for users to manage their privacy settings. even so from europe to the united states lawmakers are demanding answers from the man at the helm. wouldn't it be great for him to show up like most

10:04 am
zuckerberg is the only saying this because his company got caught. i think he's quite sincere and in trying to do the right thing first of all he has a long history of having made previous mistakes of on privacy and has always come clean in many ways about what they did wrong and also what they wanted to wait i think there is this time though that the breach was so big and it happened so many years ago that the question becomes how much more damage has been done and so the question that was a lot of cleanup the facebook cassaday arrow and today is just the first step that mark a second part of that cleanup is new security and privacy measures that mark zuckerberg is promising including turning off third party apps for example do you think that's going to be enough. it's a start but i think more than anything else there's one thing that they cannot control which is what do people with that data over eighty what can they do with that the problem of the kibosh analytic is that this book tried to make sure with
10:05 am

facebook does these things because i think case book is going to have a higher standard for themselves and the faster moving than any government could ever dare the number one thing that pays for cast a repair is trust and they will do that faster and better in many ways than any government entity could be able to do it trust is important for the user surely in the delete facebook campaign does seem to be gaining some traction how much damage can it do here. i think first of all that this one is the latest in a series they've been around for many years now there have been previous campaigns everything from facebook became back in two thousand and seven two thousand and eight even to the current day so i do think that again i have many friends who have actually written to me and said i've done i know i wasn't using it very much i don't need this off of facebook but the reality is that many people still rely on it and tremendous value from it so i think you're going to see people deleting
10:07 am
facebook on the fringes and the question becomes how will that damage the way that people use it every single day will people be just a little more hesitant use it just a little bit less all that cumulative effect of people using it less will impact their business model and their practices tremendously surely leaf from the automator group in san francisco thank you so much for joining us. now it's a homecoming no one was expecting in nigeria the islamist group boko haram has freed most of the one hundred ten schoolgirls they snatched from the town of doxy a month ago but their act of clemency came with a chilling warning to parents don't try sending your daughters to school again or we'll be back our correspondent ari adrienne creech has this report. there were no limits to the jubilation and dempsey. to the complete surprise of local residents a convoy of pickup trucks and into the town on wednesday morning and released
