Other tactics have also been deployed, with some voters saying they were paid and given other incentives to cast their ballots. Sisi's only challenger and al Ghad party chief Moussa Mostafa Moussa was able to get only three per cent of vote share.
The updates include easier access to Facebook's user settings and tools to easily search for, download and delete personal data stored on the site used by two billion people.
"The social media company said the Privacy Act did not apply to it and it did not have to comply with the commissioner's request to review the information requested by the complainant", the watchdog said in a statement. From the new setting page, people will be able to delete specific things they've shared or liked in the past, stopping advertisers from having access to that information. In those ads, Zuckerberg says that Facebook has "a responsibility to protect your information", that it breached users' trust, and that it is taking steps to make sure it never happens again.
