David Fraser, a Halifax privacy lawyer, isn't convinced that the narrative is accurate. If somebody takes digital information, under the Criminal Code it's not theft ... "And more than 70 million small businesses now use Facebook to grow and create jobs".
Such profiling is risky because it completely exceeds individual control. Various news outlets, from CNN to The New York Times to BuzzFeed, have published reports highlighting just how much data Facebook has on its users.
When asked why the company did not immediately alert the 87 million users whose data may have been improperly accessed when first told about it in 2015, Zuckerberg said Facebook considered it a "closed case" after Cambridge Analytica said they had deleted it.
House lawmakers aggressively questioned Zuckerberg Wednesday on user data, privacy settings and whether the company is biased against conservatives. "Our bill will help protect Americans' online data fingerprint". If I post a photo on Facebook, I can choose whether it's visible to the public or to my friends or to a subset, a list of friends. The legislation is also meant to hold personal information collectors accountable for any kind of breaches and leaks that occur as a result of weak protection policies and general recklessness.
Chances are someone you have corresponded with - by email or mobile phone - has let Facebook's data spiders crawl through their correspondence, thereby allowing your contact data to be assimilated entirely without your knowledge or consent."They make nearly all of their money selling advertisements". You (or, one of your staffers) even have a verified account there.
Did we just get to the bottom of the "does Facebook listen to your conversations" conspiracy?
Because after watching lawmakers fumble their way through the questions they posed to Zuckerberg, who'd swapped his customary hoodie for what appeared to be his dad's suit, it's not clear the majority of them possess the baseline understanding of what Facebook does to responsibly regulate it.
It will be weeks before Facebook responds to Congress and addresses this issue. Zuckerberg said he will know more when the current investigation is over. What Facebook is selling to political campaigns is the same thing Uber is selling to its drivers and customers and what YouTube is selling to advertisers who hope to reach an audience of children - namely, the right to bypass longstanding rules and regulations in order to act with impunity. Congress wants to get it right, even if they don't totally understand.
"The Internet is growing in importance around the world in people's lives, and I think that it is inevitable that there will need to be some regulation", he said.
Some of the discussion in Washington was pointing to the monopoly Facebook has which could be the biggest factor in determining how forgiving users will be. "There was a movie about this - or it said it was about this - it was of unclear truth". Others asked the CEO about Facebook's restriction of a page belonging to pro-Trump vloggers "Diamond and Silk".
A new survey by Creative Strategies, a market intelligence and strategy consulting firm based in Silicon Valley, shows that the Cambridge Analytica incident may have significantly accelerated the social network's demise.
Laidlaw suggested that Canada needs to step up and follow Europe's lead when it comes to regulation and privacy laws.
