Well done Ted Cruz!


He was a jerk. You can tell he's got blinders on and was just throwing baseless accusations and questions out there.

What an idiot...and to think he was in second place behind Trump.. Reagan is turning over in his grave.


Mark, is that you?

I... don't understand.

Are people really so naive that they thought their data was private on Facebook?




Yes.

What's worse is they know FB is worth billions but no idea how.

They really are not touching on a fraction of how Facebook uses your data.

A large percentage of web sites these days automatically check if the user is also logged into Facebook. Then they combine this data with the pages visited on the web site in many ways that we probably are not even aware of. Facebook knows where you are at all times if you are logged in on your phone. The amount of ways your Facebook data is used is endless.

"log in using Facebook"

Pretty scary IMO. Like an Internet drivers licence of sorts.

If you're good and honest, you should not be taken advantage of by those who are not... even if you don't care.

Not only that, even if you've never been on FB, they still create a shadow profile of you. At the sites that you visit that have a FB share option still send your data to FB. You don't even have to opt in to have your data collected and stored under your internet profile they've created for you.

The only "smart" thing Zuckerberg has done was steal the FB idea from the group mates that came up with the idea.


Well, he has one of the most successful companies on the planet so he's apparently smarter than most people.

You nailed it....he did not steal anything ...and was smarter than he even knew (we've all been there-good or bad) he just went with it...now he has billions of $$$$ ..and folks working for him....he could just say screw this...and pass it on to another partner ...but he has not done this. So in my small brain ...right there I think he is cool


Think ...

I'm hoping for the giant pic with Z and the sealed up microphones followed up by the question why he did that. Yeah not gonna happen but you have to admit it sounds awesome.


Unfortunately Z will weasel himelf out of this and pretend he values your privacy. [spoiler]He doesn't.[/spoiler] Regulate or kill Facebook. It's the only way to be sure.
You picked the same word I did when I saw part of the testimony. Smug also comes to mind. I did enjoy Ted Cruz grilling him. Even Ben Nelson asked some hard questions. Z clearly things he's above any come uppance here. One thing I really took away from the testimony is Z's concept of how FB is responsible for controlling content, and it's clear that he knows it's full of biased censors but he's pretending it's all for the good or he thinks it's the common good any way.
