Zuck-and-Cover Highlights

“oops,” said Internet power-user Mark Faceberg.

Faceberg got off easy yesterday as the Media was more swooning over dreamy Paul Ryan stepping down, so as a public service we’re providing highlights from the transcript…

  • Faceberg admitted that, yes, your data was sold to Cambridge Analytica. Whatchoo gonna do about it?
  • Faceberg claimed that users can download all data held about them. That may be untrue.
  • Some lawmakers asked him about tracking of non-Facebook users.
  • Representatives said that people don’t own inferences made by Facebook.
  • Faceberg refused to say that the firm would provide super-tight privacy by default.

Over both hearings, Faceberg promised to “follow up” on 43 questions he couldn’t answer there and then. Some of the answers will be YUGELY revealing.

This thing is far from over. Congress has figured out that Facebook is a monopoly, but I don’t think they know what to do about it. Yet. Generally modern-day Republicans are OK with monopolies (as long as the monopoly benefits them, and the campaign contribution envelope is returned stuffed with cash), but they put on their best VICTIM!!1! shirts and asked about how FB Rage Uncles conservative voices are being squashed on Facebook without providing any supporting evidence.

    Conservative who believe their voices are being squashed on Facebook also believe pizza joints have basements and Jesus loves him some AK47’s.

    Zuck should release the metadata that proves that Ted Cruz is the Zodiac Killer.
