Making it clear that he doesn't care about users and that the license agreement stated how users' data would be harvested, the entire Mark Zuckerberg's Facebook hearing was an utter sham. Clearly nothing will change even with an awful UELA and Facebook now being the least trusted major tech company.
Facebook is a known behemoth corporate monopoly. It has exposed at least 87 million people’s data, enabled foreign propaganda and perpetuated discrimination. We shouldn’t be begging for Facebook’s endorsement of laws, or for Mark Zuckerberg’s promises of self-regulation. We should treat him as a danger to democracy and demand our senators get a real hearing.
The best senators understood this was a show, and used it as such. “Your user agreement sucks,” said Senator John Kennedy. “Are you a monopoly?” asked Senator Lindsey Graham. (Zuckerberg comically responded that he didn’t “feel” like it.) Senator Richard Blumenthal said we needed laws, not promises or apologies.
