A former California startup has accused Mark Zuckerberg of ‘weaponizing’ user data to earn Facebook billions and force rivals out of business.

 

The social media company is also accused of allegedly conducting mass surveillance through its apps by gathering information from texts and photos of users and their friends, as well as smartphone microphones.

 

The allegations are from the lawsuit filed against Facebook by Six4Three – a former California startup that was behind the failed app Pikinis, which allowed users to scan their Facebook friends for bikini photos.
