Facebook launches Clear History feature that should have been there all along

Atlantic Equities analyst James Cordwell said there was "significant potential for Facebook to be a big problem for Match", but one that was dependent on execution over the long term.

Today, we're announcing plans to build Clear History.

"We like this because it mirrors the way people actually date, which is at events and institutions they're connected to", said Chris Cox, Facebook's product head.

Once the update is rolled out to users, they will also be able to see information about the apps and websites they've interacted with that use Facebook's ads and analytics tools. As Facebook's recent scandals have shown, the company tends to underestimate how bad actors can manipulate its service, so people will have to take Zuckerberg's word that the company built the dating service while anticipating how personal data could potentially be leaked.

Zuckerberg did say that "this is an example of the kind of control we think you should have".

Facebook brings to the dating table a treasure trove of data on its active users, which are over 2 billion strong. That could mean reentering usernames and passwords as Facebook relearns user settings and preferences.

Zuckerberg made the announcement at Facebook's annual f8 developer conference, in which he acknowledging that 2018 has been an "intense year" just four months in. For instance, Facebook could use the conference to release a portable headset created to turn the so far geeky realm of virtual reality into a mass phenomenon.


And you get an Oculus Go, and you get an Oculus Go, and you get an Oculus Go...

It also has new sharing experiences including Oculus Venues, a way to experience live concerts and events in virtual reality. "We will keep building", he announced to applause from the audience.

"Fixing" Facebook will take three years, Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg said in an interview with Wired.

That is, if you want. "It's opt in. we have designed this with privacy and safety in mind from the beginning. you will only be suggested people who are not your friends".

While Zuckerberg repeatedly appealed to developers to join Facebook's cause to connect the world, he had one other announcement to win over the crowd: Everyone at the conference is receiving a free Oculus Go.

Shares of the company plummeted more than 9% immediately following CEO Mark Zuckerberg's comments at Facebook's F8 conference in California on Tuesday afternoon.

He also reiterated that Facebook is investing a lot in security and in strengthening its systems so they can't be exploited to meddle with elections.
