Europe’s parliament calls for full audit of Facebook in wake of breach scandal
techcrunch.com
The European Parliament has called for a full audit of Facebook following a string of data breach scandals —  including the Cambridge Analytica affair. MEPs are urging the company to allow European Union bodies to carry out a full audit to assess data protection and security of users’ personal data, following the scandal in which the data of 87 million Facebook users was improperly obtained and misused. In the resolution, adopted today, they have also recommended Facebook make additional changes to combat election interference — asserting the company has not just breached the trust of European users “but indeed EU law”. We’ve reached out to the company for comment on the parliament’s resolution. Earlier this month the EU parliament’s civil li [...]

Google Maps takes on Facebook Pages with new ‘Follow’ feature for tracking businesses
techcrunch.com
Google Maps has been steadily rolling out new features to make its app more than just a way to find places and navigate to them. In recent months, it’s added things like group trip planning, music controls, commuter tools, ETA sharing, personalized recommendations, and more. Now, it’s introducing a new way for users to follow their favorite businesses, as well – like restaurants, bars, or stores, for example – in order to stay on top of their news and updates.

Myspace reborn! Facebook will let you pin song clips to your profile
techcrunch.com
Facebook will let friends learn about you by streaming clips of your favorite songs from your profile in a throwback to Myspace Music. You’ll be able to choose tracks to add to a revamped Music section of your profile that now actually plays songs instead of just showing what artists you Like, and you can pin your favorites right to the top of your profile. The feature will launch in select countries later this year. While friends won’t be able to listen to the whole song to see how you express yourself, they’ll get to watch an accompanying video that collages artist photos and album art, like an algorithmic music video. Facebook could eventually strike streaming partnership with companies like Spotify or Apple Music to allow full-song streaming. The new Music section o [...]

We’re going forward on this . . . We want to see those glasses come into reality, and I think we want to play our part in helping to bring them there.” This is the clearest confirmation we’ve received yet from Facebook about its plans for AR glasses. The product could be Facebook’s opportunity to own a mainstream computing device on which its software could run after a decade of being beholden to smartphones built, controlled and taxed by Apple and Google. Fresh off the heels of its first hardware lau [...]
