Facebook Data Leak Has Exposed Personal Details of Over 3 Million Users

People from all over the world, from almost every country, is well aware of Facebook. All these users are continuously sharing their photos, videos, opinion and ideas to the world through Facebook. Facebook, being the most popular social media platform across the world has been linked to other social media platforms as well. If a person is connecting his facebook account with his Instagram account, the photos that are shared on Instagram can also be viewed on Facebook. Now that Facebook is using the data from different other social media platform, the data of the users are getting leaked. Data of almost three million users got leaked and this has exposed the personal details of the users. According to the analysts, these numbers may increase. This is because Facebook is still in the early stage of the investigation. Facebook is investigating thousands of apps to stop the data to be leaked out further. According to Facebook if they find any app misusing any of the data, they will immediately ban the same from any type collaboration with Facebook.

So, how did it start?

From the very beginning, since Facebook had started its journey as a social media platform, Facebook has been using personal details of the users. For example, when a person wants to sign in to Facebook and wants to open an account, he has to provide with his name, email id, phone number, date of birth, job status, profile picture and many more. However, it is not compulsory to provide all the details. It’s only that the name, email id, the phone number is compulsory to provide. If anyone wants he can keep his profile picture, date of birth, job status as a secret. But in most of the cases, it has been seen that most of the users give out all their personal details on Facebook, even if that is not mandatory. Thus many of the details of the users leak because of the negligence of the users.

Facebook Data Leak

Other possible ways for which the data leaked

Over the last few months, Facebook had been conducting a survey among the users. For this survey, the users have to answer few questions. On basis of these answers, the personality of the user is being judged. Students of the University of Cambridge had provided these answers to the researchers. However, when the answers were provided to the researchers, there were no proper security measures. Thus all the personal data of the users were leaked to the world. Highly sensitive personal details of the users, such as the psychological test results, personal information like email id, phone number, age and many more got revealed.

Steps were taken by Facebook to stop the data to be leaked

Facebook has stopped the “myPersonality” app from the platform. According to Facebook, the “myPersonality” app has violated the contract or not to make any information public. Thus to avoid the risk of the data to be leaked, Facebook has suspended the “myPersonality” app. Facebook has also removed all the data of the users so that in no way these data are leaked.

What is “myPersonality” app?

The “myPersonality” app was not only used for an academic purpose to make researches about different types of personalities, this was also used for business purpose as well. Different companies have used the information provided by the users to conduct the survey. This helped the companies to know the users and about their choice, likes and dislikes. People associated with the University of Cambridge are to be held responsible for disclosing all the data of the users. This is an act of violation of the contract.

Our Take?

We suggest that whenever you share any information on the social media platform, one must be conscious enough so that no personal data is being given out.


It is always better not to share any personal details on social media. All the information must be made visible only to the friends and not to the public.


Decoding the Changing Facebook Algorithms

On 12th January, Facebook CEO, Mark Zuckerberg announced that Facebook would be changing its newsfeed algorithm so as to favour posts by friends and family, over posts from companies. This is probably one of the largest changes to the Facebook newsfeed and will impact all businesses and force them to rethink their marketing strategies.

Zuckerberg believed that it is necessary that the time his users spent on Facebook, is worthwhile. He used this as a justification to introduce this new touch. “ You’ll see less public content like posts from businesses, brands, and media. And the public content you see more will be held to the same standard—it should encourage meaningful interactions between people”, he wrote.

It will be more challenging for companies to reach out to their audience now. Businesses will see a reduction in the organic reach, as the changes are rolled out. Unpaid promotions were never easy, and with Facebook incorporating this new algorithm, it will become all the more difficult. It is still not clear how paid ads will fare, but all in all, this is certainly not a great news for companies, to start the year with.

Yes, public unpaid content will still be available, but it needs to foster discussion among the audience. Facebook will promote content which attracts more comments. Coming up with tactics like ‘Comment on this picture for a free trial’, or in other words using ‘engagement-bait’ may seem like a viable option, but that will only be worse for your business. Facebook demotes such posts in the Newsfeed as it believes that they do not produce any quality interaction, and only lead to spamming of the user’s newsfeed.

Instead, you should look towards ways to create better, and more engaging content for your organic Facebook campaign. You can come with posts which encourage users to share their experiences or ask for their feedback. This will lead to more interaction, in the form of more comments which is exactly what Facebook is looking for. As a company, you need to start thinking from the customer’s perspective and create content which is appealing to them.

So, what are the key areas in which you should be investing your time and effort, with these changes in the Facebook algorithm? Here are some areas to focus on :

Look out for Paid Ads:  You should look towards increasing your budget on paid ads on Facebook. Zuckerberg hasn’t said anything about paid promotions, but in probability, these will still reach out to the public as before. Unpaid content will be affected.

Create engaging content: Unpaid content that you create should be creative, engaging and lead to discussion among people. This is the only way such posts show up in the newsfeed.

Facebook Live: Videos, especially live videos fare extremely well on Facebook. If you haven’t started using it, this is the right time to do so. The new algorithm will support Facebook Live videos, and these can be used to maximize customer interaction.

Use other platforms: Other social media platforms like Snapchat and Instagram if you are not getting favourable results on Facebook. These sites are also becoming popular among the youth and can be used to target your audience.

Why Outsourcing your Social Media Marketing is the Best Thing to do in 2018

With most social networking platforms reaching their all-time high figures, in terms of the number of users, Social Media Marketing has undoubtedly become one of the most popular ways of reaching out to your target audience. If done properly, it can provide very high ROI and help shape your brand’s image.

Social Media Marketing (SMM)is very important for your brand and it needs to be done in a proper manner. Many people have this notion that it is an easy task, and the basics of Facebook and Twitter will help them sail through. In reality, it is much more complicated and requires the knowledge of a professional.

SMM is more than just advertising across social channels. It requires the knowledge of various software and apps for managing your marketing campaign. It also demands an ability to create quality content which will be a hit with your target audience. You need a continuous campaign, across various social channels, curated specifically for your target audience.

All this is seldom possible with a small in-house marketing team. They may not be as well equipped with the intricacies of social media marketing. Also, social media is time-consuming and it may not always be possible for them to look into this. As a company which is just starting up, you have numerous other tasks to look after. In such a case, outsourcing your social media marketing will be your best bet. The past year was a huge year for social media, with the number of Facebook users reaching 2 billion, and these figures will continue to grow in 2018. Outsourcing your social media will have the following benefits.

Save Money

If you don’t outsource, you will need to hire a professional. This will probably be more expensive as apart from the salary you will have to look into other benefits and overheads. Working directly with a b2b agency will provide you more value for money. Also, you won’t have to spend on any software, tools or training as they will already be equipped with the same


Social media doesn’t just involve sharing posts. It also involves analysing huge amounts of data and figuring out a proper strategy based on the results. Marketing agencies catering to social media will have many experienced members who actually enjoy doing all this.Moreover, tools and technology are developing at a very steep rate and it will be difficult for you to keep up with all this. The coming year might also see newer forms of social media emerging or new advertising formats across channels. All this should be left to the professionals. As stated before, social marketing is not as easy as it appears.

Response Management

If you are busy, there are chances that the queries on social media platforms, by your customers go unattended. This will be better handled by a separate agency. So if you have a product launch or a team outing, you need not worry about your social media presence fading out. Marketing agencies like ours provide continuous solutions and ensure your presence across social channels at all times.

Targeting your audience

If you cannot answer questions like who you are targeting specifically, and where is there presence likely to be found, it is best that a third party handle your social media handles. They will research your target audience, find out how and where to target them and generate leads for your company.

If you are not convinced enough, just have a look at your social media marketing outcomes. Is your in-house marketing team or the underpaid intern able to generate enough leads? If the answer is not satisfactory, you are probably not doing it right and should look towards outsourcing your social media marketing, in the coming year.

The feminist had been paired with a man who believed in patriarchy, a climate change denier with an environmentalist and a transgender with a person who did not support this notion. They are then offered an option to walk away or have a discussion over a bottle of beer. All of them choose to do the latter. Though the ending was evident (being an advertising campaign of Heineken beer), the content kept the audience hooked. It had 3 million views, during the first 8 days of its launch and was largely praised for tackling social issues properly, something which the Pepsi ad, launched at the same time, failed to address.

Before you start advertising on Pinterest, keep in mind certain principles which will go a long way in deciding your success and growth.

When you advertise on Pinterest, remember to:

  • Be authentic
    Promote content that expresses who you really are and what you actually offer.
  • Create ads that make you proud 
    Your ads should be some of the best stuff people see on Pinterest.

Pinterest advertisements are known as Promoted Pins. They are similar to the regular Pins, except that you are charged to promote and publicize them among a bigger audience. Pinterest has three chief kinds of campaigns:

  • Awareness campaigns aim to get your Pins in front of new people who don’t know about your business yet or aren’t interacting with your brand yet.
  • Engagement campaigns seek to encourage Pinterest users to engage with your content by repining or clicking on your Promoted Pins.
  • Traffic campaigns direct visitors or potential clients from your Promoted Pins directly to your website link.

Targeted Audience

Pinterest has methods which help you select your audience in a variety of ways:

  • Interest targeting allows you to target users based on over 400 different interests some of which range from street style, sustainable architecture, clean environment and more.

How much you have to pay and how will you be charged will depend on the type of campaigns you want to run. Awareness campaigns are charged by CPM, engagement campaigns by engagement, and traffic campaigns by click.

Pinterest employs a “second-price auction model” for bids on ads.

You could be charged as per your maximum bid, but you can also pay less according to the situation.
