I am surprised he has friends !

For example, Facebook gave Amazon extended access to user data because it was spending money on Facebook advertising and partnering with the social network on the launch of its Fire smartphone. In another case, Facebook discussed cutting off access to user data for a messaging app that had grown too popular and was viewed as a competitor, according to the documents.

Private communication between users is “increasingly important,” Zuckerberg said in a 2014 New York Times interview. “Anything we can do that makes people feel more comfortable is really good.”

    Looks like anti-competitive behavior to me! Where's that anti-trust hammer....

    Seriously beginning to wonder if these apps are in-your-face monitoring tools that don't need to be state-run. Which politician wouldn't be tempted?

      Beginning? You either need to be Ok with that, or delete your account.

      USCIS is now requiring many visa appliants to turn over their social media accounts for review. China has gone one further and given a social credit score based on how state friendly your social media posts are.

    Facebook is ethically moral. Has always been. Why all this fuss.
