Mark Zuckerberg faces allegations that he developed a “malicious and fraudulent scheme” to exploit vast amounts of private data to earn Facebook billions and force rivals out of business.

 

A company suing Facebook in a California court claims the social network’s chief executive “weaponised” the ability to access data from any user’s network of friends – the feature at the heart of the Cambridge Analytica scandal.

 

A legal motion filed last week in the superior court of San Mateo draws upon extensive confidential emails and messages between Facebook senior executives including Mark Zuckerberg. He is named individually in the case and, it is claimed, had personal oversight (more…)

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.

Like the old saying goes, the most dangerous place in Washington is between a politician and a camera.

Expect that dynamic to be on full display this afternoon when Mark Zuckerberg appears before the Senate Judiciary Committee for his first day of testimony before lawmakers. Public hearings like these are an excellent opportunity for lawmakers to score political points and craft soundbites that can be used to pad their campaign ads – which is particularly important now, with the crucial 2018 midterms just months away.

Given the possibility that Zuckerberg’s answers to lawmakers’ questions could impact Facebook shares, it’s worth considering what (more…)

Mark Zuckerberg Explains How Facebook Will Try to Kill Alternative Media :: Breitbart

In his recent interview with the far-left online publication Vox, Mark Zuckerberg explained Facebook’ new system of favoring “broadly trusted” news sources, via a mechanism designed to favor established outlets and crush new media.

Facebook engagement on President Trump’ posts fell by 45 per cent.

In his Vox interview, Mark Zuckerberg explained these changes as neutrally as he could, talking about providing a more “meaningful experience” for Facebook (more…)

Like his tech colleagues at Google, Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg enjoyed ‘most-favored company’ status during the Obama administration.

What a difference 12 months makes.

Following a report by the Left-leaning Guardian over the weekend that a consulting firm called Cambridge Analytica, which was funded as a start-up by billionaire Trump supporter Robert Mercer, used a Facebook app to access and target some 50 million users during the 2016 election, Zuckerberg and his company have now come under intense fire — from the Left.

Seems that social media tech is a political resource by and for the American Communist Party, a.k.a, Democrats, not those (more…)
