Faceberg Speaks (finally)

Comrade Faceberg

On a Facebook post and this is the key part:

“We have a responsibility to protect your data, and if we can’t then we don’t deserve to serve you. I’ve been working to understand exactly what happened and how to make sure this doesn’t happen again. The good news is that the most important actions to prevent this from happening again today we have already taken years ago. But we also made mistakes, there’s more to do, and we need to step up and do it.”

And further down, near the end:

“I started Facebook, and at the end of the day I’m responsible for what happens on our platform. I’m serious about doing what it takes to protect our community. While this specific issue involving Cambridge Analytica should no longer happen with new apps today, that doesn’t change what happened in the past. We will learn from this experience to secure our platform further and make our community safer for everyone going forward.”

But you know what he never says in that post?

An apology.

There is also no explanation of why they didn’t disclose knowledge of this C.A. event in 2015, when they became aware of it, which of course predates the 2016 Goat Rodeo and the Russian meddling. And you know why, of course: because Faceberg’s core business function is collecting and providing access to YOUR data.

    Could it be that the reason Faceberg didn’t report the theft of data back in 2015 was because he was compensated for said data? After all fiduciary responsibility is the prime directive of a CEO. Cha-Ching.

    “It’s a sinkhole for your personal information,” I said. They laughed.

    “I value what little privacy I have left,” I said. They told me I was being silly.

    “What harm could it do?” they asked. “All that stuff’s out there anyway.”

    So to all the people who ridiculed me for avoiding Facebook:

    Told you so!! Told you so!! Nyah, nyah, nyah!!

    When you read the fine print, it says (in short): whatever you post to Facebook does not belong to you, it belongs to Facebook. Zuckerberg doesn’t give a flying fig about your data, it isn’t yours. It’s his.

    Or. How about during interviews six months ago?

    That was when they lost the invoice, for the second time.

    Or maybe when the receptionist forgot to put it in the mail.

    Sorry, broken record mode disengaged.

  6. I think legally, he can’t apologize (not that he’s crying over this), although, I think he said sorry via CNN. What a mess.
