I don’t know what the record is for consecutive days on which one company’s screw-up was on the front page of The Wall Street Journal, but Facebook is in the running.
“U.S., States Step Up Pressure on Facebook,” The Wall Street Journal, March 27, 2018 A1. “[F]ederal regulators [including the FTC] … and 37 state attorneys general demanding explanations for [Facebook’s privacy] practices.” Stock price up 0.4% (when the market was up 669.40 points). Demands/invitations that Zuckerberg (and Google and Twitter) testify before Congress. And Europe hasn’t weighted in yet.
There is also a pop-up that describes FB’s practice of logging some calls and texts from Android phones. Did you (we) know that? Do you know what companies are doing with “your” data? Do you care? Privacy is dead; Facebook investigated as person of interest.
I guess that answers the question of who’s in charge: the Feds and the states. I guess I missed the outrage when essentially the same data was collected and used quite effectively by the Obama campaign.
