Faceberg Gets 👎

“oops.”

The FTC has opened an investigation of The Facebook:

“The FTC is firmly and fully committed to using all of its tools to protect the privacy of consumers. Foremost among these tools is enforcement action against companies that fail to honor their privacy promises, including to comply with Privacy Shield, or that engage in unfair acts that cause substantial injury to consumers in violation of the FTC Act. Companies who have settled previous FTC actions must also comply with FTC order provisions imposing privacy and data security requirements. Accordingly, the FTC takes very seriously recent press reports raising substantial concerns about the privacy practices of Facebook. Today, the FTC is confirming that it has an open non-public investigation into these practices.”

The share price, she be plummeting:

You see, Faceberg, er, Facebook has been under a consent decree since 2011, and if they find that Faceberg violated that decree, it is a $40K Amero fine per user and at 50M users that Cambridge Analytica, well, violated, that’s a lot of Ameros.

    Faceberg shouldn’t be worried.

    Guccifer 2.0 said the check was in the mail last week.

    Honor among thieves, and all that donchaknow.

    I would dearly love to see the look on his face as all five of the houses he owns in SF, one to live in and the four surrounding it to ensure his privacy, get confiscated and sold to people who think he’s an amateur upstart shitheel. One-by-one.

    Ah who am I kidding. He’s got more money stashed in Bermuda than we could hope fantasize about.
