FACEBOOK'S SLOPPY DATA-SHARING DEALS MIGHT BE CRIMINAL.


In the past 24 hours, the company’s services, including Facebook, Instagram, WhatsApp, Messenger, and Oculus, froze for most of a day and a newspaper revealed that a new crop of prosecutors is investigating the company for criminal behavior related to a slew of data partnerships.

The new investigation reportedly includes grand jury subpoenas for records from at least two smartphone manufacturers. Their partnerships with Facebook allegedly gave them access to the personal information of millions of Facebook users.

Coincidence that Facebook and two of its major brands: Instagram and Whatsapp experience "server failures" at approximately the same time that subpoenas are issued to some of its partner companies over their handling of customer information?


Facebook is under criminal investigation by federal prosecutors examining its data-sharing deals with other major technology companies, according to the New York Times.

Investigations by the Federal Trade Commission, the justice department and the Securities and Exchange Commission have all been previously reported.

So what really happened?

Its all speculation but some are saying that Facebook essentially carried out a "purge" of sorts and in order to do so, had to go "offline"...

Wouldn't be surprised, I also wouldn't be surprised that with a few 'payments' here and there, no-one will be jailed for it either

This would not surprise me in the slightest.

Bet they don't have a stonetear asking reddit how to modify server logs either.

Definitely not a coincidence. Burning files that’s what it was.

Those of us who work with IT knows how hard it is for a big tech company such as Facebook to have a 10-hour-more downtime.

They probably have like 5 backup servers all over the World. This was no maintenance at all.

The sword of Damocles is hanging over Zuckerbergs head.

The dream is over. What started as a genuine attempt to reconnect people and share their lives has become something sinister, now the vultures will swoop in with alternatives, Reddit already has its foot in the door, who knows what is going to take the crown.

Right...Facebook started so innocently.

...started the same day congress shut down darpa's Lifelog program that does the same thing Facebook does.


They are still activating your microphone and possibly your camera and compiling data when you install Facebook Messenger.

Even after the theatrical handslap in congress.

Zucky boy is the fake face and story behind the biggest control op ever.

Sorry, hostility not directed at your comment, just the lame super survellience state bs.

It's being used political change and not in a good way.

Looking at it from an IT point its possible that a load of police turned up at various datacentres unannounced and just started grabbing anything they wanted and leaving a trail of mayhem behind which would take a while to sort out as you'd need to possibly ship new kit to the places affected and then set it all up and then it'll take a while to re-sync while probably will take up most of the bandwidth between sites.

Probably FB's DR plans didn't include a load of police who think fire is a bit new going in yanking drives out of units while in use.

Strictly a "coincidence" that only happens one time in a Century 😎

Pretty sure destruction of evidence and hindering the authorities' investigations are crimes, Mr Zuckerberg.

Except the recent outage wasnt a server problem but rather was a BGP route leak..

One deals with servers and one deals with networks.

Recently when wells fargo had a "server failure" i suspected they were "losing" information related to a subpoena. The playbook never changes.
