Vote was 3-2. Reps backing and Dems opposing. Yet this doesn’t seem to have any impact on Facebook’s profitability — technology-wise. Slap on the wrist? Stock keeps rising? Short-term fall? Any insights?

    It's only $5 per user's privacy, super cheap. I will pay more than that if I wanna know about somebody's life.
