Tommaso Valletti est économiste en chef de la direction de la concurrence de la Commission européenne.

“Les critères d’analyse des risques concurrentiels sont-ils mauvais ? Notre analyse de ces marchés numériques était beaucoup trop étroite : pour WhatsApp, la définition de marché était la messagerie instantanée, pour Instagram, celle d’application de photo en ligne. Mais, dans son cœur, Facebook veut capter notre attention, pour apprendre sur nous et proposer de la publicité hyperciblée. Comme Google. Il faut considérer ces entreprises comme des négociants en attention.”

“In order to ensure the government is added to the conversation in secret, GCHQ’s proposal would require messaging apps, service providers, and operating systems to change their software so that it would 1) change the encryption schemes used, and/or 2) mislead users by suppressing the notifications that routinely appear when a new communicant joins a chat.”

“ The UpGuard Cyber Risk team can now report that two more third-party developed Facebook app datasets have been found exposed to the public internet. One, originating from the Mexico-based media company Cultura Colectiva, weighs in at 146 gigabytes and contains over 540 million records detailing comments, likes, reactions, account names, FB IDs and more. This same type of collection, in similarly concentrated form, has been cause for concern in the recent past, given the potential uses of such data.”

“Called Screenwise Meter, the iOS and Android app gave users who opted into Google’s Opinion Rewards program gift cards in exchange for tracking their internet usage data. The iOS version of the app relied on Apple’s enterprise program, which allows for the distribution of apps with special privileges to be used only by a company’s employees. The app has now been disabled on iOS, though it’s still available on Google’s Play Store. ”
