iAfrikan Bytes - Facebook Africa's Emilar Gandhi on safety policies and data harvesting

25 April 2018

We sat down with Emilar Gandhi, Public Policy Manager at Facebook Africa for a quick interview. We discussed Facebook's safety and community #policies and tools, whether Facebook users should still be worried about Facebook third-party apps harvesting their data given the recent Cambridge Analytica saga, as well as Facebook's involvement and partnership with Digify Africa's iLizwe Lam youth safety training programme.
