Zuckerberg’s Data Dump (on us)

“The FTC’s $5 billion fine for Facebook is so meaningless, it will likely leave Zuckerberg wondering what he can’t get away with.” – Business Insider

“Those are some nice facebookers,” observed Mark Zuckerberg

After the news on Friday that the Federal Trade Commission is close to finalizing a settlement with his company for a mere $5 billion, Zuckerberg has got to be feeling similarly untouchable. If, after all the privacy and security fiascos Facebook admitted to over the past two years — including, but not limited to, the Cambridge Analytica scandal — it gets off with such a small penalty, he’s got to think he probably could get away with murder.

The Wall Street Journal reports, “Saudis Weigh Saying Journalist Was Killed by Mistake.

Riyadh is considering issuing a statement saying that rogue operatives killed Khashoggi by mistake during an interrogation gone wrong

On Monday, Saudi officials were considering whether to say rogue operatives killed Jamal Khashoggi during an interrogation gone wrong, people familiar with the matter said, a move that could help the royal family distance itself from responsibility.

We don’t think Zuckerberg has retained an on-call “bone sawing” expert, yet. At least, not that we know of.

This is your ghillie suit for taking the fight to the Masters of the Universe.

From the Business Insider, “This photo shows that even Mark Zuckerberg is paranoid about his privacy.

But the photo has taken new meaning after Zuckerberg apologized on Wednesday for a scandal in which British data company Cambridge Analytica, which has ties to Donald Trump’s 2016 presidential campaign, illicitly obtained information from as many as 50 million Facebook profiles by abusing Facebook’s data-sharing features.

From the Instagram photo, it’s clear that Zuckerberg takes his own personal privacy very seriously.

Facebook’s Peeping ‘Zucks’

For anyone who watched Mark Zuckerberg’s Congressional Hearing appearances, it’s clear that Mark is clearly, well…. different.  But this latest, Mr. Zuckerberg?  Jeez!!  The Forbes headline says it all, “Facebook Wants Your Nude Photos; What Could Possibly Go Wrong?

In a bid to wrap up the race for the Tin Ear of the Year Award before June 1, Facebook has begun asking its 2.2 billion users to discreetly share their indiscreet nude photos with the company. The plan, they say, is to train Facebook to block the images you don’t ever want on Facebook, in cases such as revenge porn.
