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

Julian Knight MP Member of Parliament for Solihull and Parliamentary Private Secretary to the Ministry of Justice told Mailonline'Mr Zuckerberg's continued no show is in my opinion pretty shameful

The past several weeks have made clear that people want more information about how Facebook works and the controls they have over their information.

"It's a simple control where you can clear your browsing history", said Zuckerberg during his keynote presentation. "There's no guarantee that we get this right", he said. We can do this without storing the information in a way that's associated with your account, and as always, we don't tell advertisers who you are.

"Yes, this is an important moment", he said.

"We're building things to bring people together", the Facebook CEO said at the conclusion of his speech.

"While Mr. Zuckerberg does not normally come under the jurisdiction of the United Kingdom parliament, he will do so the next time he enters the country", Mr. Collins wrote in a letter addressed to Rebecca Stimson, Facebook's regional head of public policy.

In the wake of the Cambridge Analytica scandal, Facebook today announced plans to build a feature that will let you clear your history.

Zuckerberg did not specify whether the feature would be free of charge, in line with Facebook's core offer - but the announcement was enough to send shares in the online dating giant Match.com tumbling by 17 percent.

"We have designed this with privacy and safety in mind from the beginning", he assured conference attendees. Their regular friends won't see these profiles.

Since mid-March, when a whistleblower exposed how the London-based firm Cambridge Analytica mishandled data culled from tens of millions of Facebook profiles, Facebook has faced a slew of bad headlines.
