    "In the end, we must confront the possibility that security and privacy scandals are actually positive developments in today's world that cement companies’ dominance and lead to waves of explosive growth in their aftermath."

    Zucks and his mother hen is getting desperate if they need to paid Forbes for **** like this...

    Negative attention is still attention. Attention is the manure that fertilizes Facebook, the Venus flytrap of humankind.:)

    Privacy scandals (gigantic plaintext storage of passwords, leaky API, bargaining of user data) for me meant that even my fake accounts were too big privacy risk and I deleted them in the previous months.
    I think that I engaged in some meaningful discussions on some groups and I even bought a ticked to the concert advertised by Facebook, so FB capitalized on my fake accounts.

    Edit: On the other hand I understand that FB may have problems immediately discover and delete live streams with terrorist or violent content. There is so much content and live stream video content is unstructured data and I just understand it is hard to find using AI. I think one or two hours to discover and delete that content is not that terrible response time.

    "...Facebook’s ability once again to ride the latest wave of public outrage almost entirely unscathed suggests that in our modern era there is little the public is willing to do when it comes to actually backing up their words with actions..."

    Yes indeed,
    and so long as the public (and government(s)) remain apathetic & stand idly by, not only will Facebook/Zuckerberg continue to enrich their bank accounts and the "power" that comes with it, but other big businesses will continue doing so as well. :thumbd:

    Yes, there is a gap between stated, self reported preferences and actual behavior. Even some psychologists forgot that:

    Ridiculous. Beyond words. This guy is in a protected class few have been in. That's the only explanation this side show has gone on for this long. What a joke.

    I deleted my Facebook account some 5 years ago. Glad I did back then.
    But then again - FB users paid no money to FB, therefore it is expected that FB will use their privacy for money, one way or another.

    "Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg accused of insider trading

    MENLO PARK, Calif. (KGO) -- CEO Mark Zuckerberg and other top Facebook executives have been hit with a complaint accusing them of insider trading, according to a report.

    The suit also blames them for the privacy scandals that have rocked Facebook and its stock value since 2016, Bloomberg reports...

    The shareholder complaint was filed today in Delaware. It also names Facebook Chief Operating Officer Sheryl Sandberg, three other Facebook board members and PayPal founder Peter Thiel..."

    Zuckerberg and his buddies should be thrown in jail. "Rather" amazing doesn't cut it for this piece of work. This guy is off the scale. Tone deaf? Yes, a seared conscience. People should have left FB years ago but they don't. There's a difference between having a reasonable amount of money for the work you do, vs lying and cheating your way to billions. No one should have that obscene amount of money.
