Facebook Chief Operating Officer Sheryl Sandberg said last week users would need to pay to keep the company from using their personal data, although the company does not now have a service tier for those seeking such privacy. The CEO of world's largest social media platform will be questioned by privacy advocates and lawmakers over the ongoing data leak scandal that risked the privacy of over 80 million Facebook users by harvesting their personal information without their consent. It was only a few weeks ago that Elon Musk quit Facebook, and he did it with a bang. "Or transparency", he said in the statement. In an update last week, Facebook estimated as many as 87 million people, mostly in the United States, may have had their data improperly shared.
