Amidst possible mishandling of customer’s data, CEO under federal scrutiny

Amidst possible mishandling of customer’s data, CEO under federal scrutiny

The Federal Trade Commission has taken ’direct aim’ at Mark Zuckerberg in addition to its official investigation since March 2018 following the Cambridge Analytica scandal. On the advice of FTC veterans, investigators will target Mr. Zuckerberg digging into past statements he has made regarding customer privacy and could hold him responsible for the company’s privacy practices.

This is fine. He's more or less been warned numerous times. You can sell metadata, or you can have ads catered personally based on viewers likes, same as youtube, so long as it's done internally by Facebook, and users have the ability to opt out. But once you sell personal, individual, information without the open knowledge and permission of your users, go eff yourself. He knew it was happening, was told to stop his shit, but didn't.

A CEO being held personally responsible for failing on their watch? This is unprecedented!

He should be in jail for trafficking of personal information.

How many times does a person have to sit in front of congressional hearing for civil rights violations or negligence before they're put in front of a judge and officially prosecuted. Stop with the political show boating and prosecute him already!

Too little too late, the guy has sold the info of countless American citizens over the several years that he has been doing this. even if they slap the cuffs on him (which they won't) it wouldn't matter at all.

Wasn't the way he started FB sketchy in itself? Didn't he sort of steal it out from some other guys? I'm probably getting details wrong. It did begin as something fun and social, back when you needed a college ID to get an account. Who knew it would become this monstrosity?

The government wants to get companies in line and use them for its own benefit. These are just standard tactics to put pressure on the CEO. As soon as he complies with the wishes of the government this will all go away!
