Among those expressing displeasure about the Dancing casting was host Tom Bergeron, who shared in a tweet that he had met with the show’s exec producer earlier this summer and said he’d hoped the season would be a “joyful respite from our exhausting political climate and free of inevitably divisive bookings from ANY party affiliations.” Bergeron said he left the lunch convinced they were in agreement, but, “subsequently (and rather obviously), a decision was made to, as we often say in Hollywood, ‘go in a different direction.” Hopefully, added Bergeron, fans will “enjoy the charismatic pro dancers, the unpredictable judges and the kitschy charm that has defined DWYS since 2005.”

Facebook is rolling out a new way for users to view a summary of the apps and websites that send Facebook information about their activity, and clear that information from their account if they wish. Users can also disconnect future off-Facebook activity from their accounts. “If you clear your off-Facebook activity, we’ll remove your identifying information from the data that apps and websites choose to send us. We won’t know which websites you visited or what you did there, and we won’t use any of the data you disconnect to target ads to you on Facebook, Instagram or Messenger,” said Erin Egan, Chief Privacy Officer, Policy and David Baser, Director of Product, Management, in a blog post. “We expect this could have some impact on our business, but we believe giving people control over their data is more important.”
