I had an app developed that 2.8 million people took in 48 hours. We got all the data.

If I had a $ :)

That aside...

"Michael Corleone: My father is no different than any powerful man, any man with power, like a president or senator.

Kay Adams: Do you know how naive you sound, Michael? Presidents and senators don’t have men killed!

Michael Corleone: Oh. Who’s being naive, Kay?"

Man with pink hair and points of view decides that the system he help built unfairly pigeon holes people and creates a video to help himself express why :)

Suppose the less rude/arrogant position is to say fair play for exposing it, but I doubt the average person is able to apply enough scepticism to what's put in front of them.

There's not going to be an overseeing ministry of truth so I guess we'll just have to put up with the noise.

Republican senator joins call for Facebook CEO to testify about data use

If Zuck watched John Kennedy question that utterly incompetent nominee for a federal judgeship, he knows he better bring his A game.

I loved the way Kennedy with an almost utterly flat, matter-of-fact tone and simple yes/no fact-based questions completely destroyed that guy.

If we follow our usual pattern, the US will end up doing little more than lip service.  We'll need the EU to kick a##.

...

Damian Collins, the chair of the Commons inquiry into fake news, accused Facebook of "misleading" the committee.
