NY attorney general announces Facebook antitrust probe

New York AG Letitia James said Friday that a bipartisan coalition of state attorneys general is investigating Facebook for alleged antitrust issues. The probe is expected to look into whether Facebook’s actions endangered consumer data, reduced the quality of consumers’ choices or increased the price of advertising.

Note NY doesn't care about Facebook's election manipulation... But they're whining about data sales only as they relate to Trump, a tactic employed by Obama.

If it’s anything like Zuckerberg’s trial, the people investigating won’t know what to look for or which questions to ask.

Ever have that feeling you’re being listened to? Have a great and wonderful gift idea ‘randomly’ put in front of you on your phone? We are being listened to, our data syphoned and it’s getting too much.

There’s also a bill that passed or will be passed (can’t remember) that will fine companies like amazon or google $40,000 every time one of their at home devices records someone without their consent. I never trusted Alexa. That shit was just creepy

The information generated by social network sites as well as the political,social, religious, & ethical opinions are too tempting not to use at one's advantage. Spending, purchasing preferences, & interests can also have value. The internet has created ugly & evil people to flourish. There is no way to catch and regulate the seedier side which is growing expotentialy.

Nothing will come out of this...unless it's something that restricts people who aren't Facebook.

"limiting consumer choices" - this one shouldn't be very hard. A platform that has an explicit statement regarding humor posts yet actively censors and suspends memes(even after review) and whoever posts them doesn't follow it's own rules of conduct, nor acts like a platform.

I don't know much about anything - but - I feel like the fact that we were all so deeply influenced by dopamine squirting digital stimulation - and that it happened right in front of us - that now we are looking deeper and deeper into a behemoth that we all created ourselves. the leadership and employees of a corporation must be held accountable, but we all need to equally hold ourselves accountable.
