Did he lie to Congress? Was he sworn in?
Yes, I suspect he lied to congress. And I doubt he was sworn in.
I don’t know for sure.
I had some raised eyebrows when requesting a 90 day fraud alert a few months ago. One of the questions asked me to verify my sisters married name who lives out of state. And by the way she only lived in that state for a short period of time. How the heck do they know that?
It is a crime to lie to or even ‘materially mislead’ Congress regardless of whether one is under oath.
When people are sworn in before hearings, its strictly for show. Questions and answers in Congressional testimony are negotiated and agreed to ahead of time and almost no straying from the script is allowed. Ask your Congressman.
Why is this a shocker though? The Zucker, going back to 2009/2010....he said all of this would be the path for Facebook to reach real profitability. He said this up front and we all seemed overcome now that he kept his promise. Or are they just upset that Trump’s team might have used this treasured private data to beat Hillary?
I maintain some presence on Facebook, but it’s a bare minimum. I can see a positive to it’s existence but people are sitting there and putting their entire life story in its full glory. You can sit and track people in life, as they divorce wife number one, marry up with wife two, and eventually get introduced to wife number five along the way. It’s probably something that we really don’t need to advertise.
“The Zucker” is not a friend of freedom. And he supports Leftist causes.
I rest my case.
owning a website means I know where you have been and where you are going when you visit me.
All of this crap is of limited effectiveness.
Marketing is big business and big business falls for it every time.
Yes, you do have to advertise (or no one knows you’re out there) but they seem to believe they can get you to do something you wouldn’t do otherwise (selling an eskimo a refrigerator).
I think the impact is more trivial than they make it out to be.
Trump won because of the state of the union, not because analytica made it so.
all that one has to do is look at one of those people finders sites that advertise on search engines. They aggregate public information.
FB knew what it was doing. They will do anything for money. suckerberg is a disgusting worm. They cut his hair for the TV appearance, put makeup on him, found him a suit and tie, and taught him how to bite his lip a la bill clinton. Didn’t convince me. Oh, and how to look down in mock repentance, and how to be on the verge of fake tears so as to win the women to his side.
I am on NO social media.
Even IF FB and Twitter were run by honest people, the whole idea of voluntarily surrendering your privacy is just plumb dumb.
FB? Really? So, if I’m on FB, hundreds (maybe, thousands) of people I have NEVER met... know ME on sight?
N O T!!!
Thanks for info. It must be accurate if the credit bureaus use it.
Yahoo email accesses your email addresses including other email programs like my Thunderbird email. I have to block it every time it pops up to ask if they can. They already stole them and sell the addresses to spammers. They also read your email. Gmail does the same. All your browser history is stolen as well.
You just have to know someone who has a Facebook account and be linked in the ever expanding “Unmasking!”.
None of my family members are connected there.
For me Twitter is about following news that I cannot find elsewhere.
Have almost 8,000 followers, have blocked more than that. My numbers are stable, but I am not interested in numbers.
I've made good friendships that span many years. Some of them are in the news business others just interested in current events.
I spend far too much time on Twitter.
I doubt I would like him if I knew him.
I certainly don’t like what he does. Not the companies he owns, but the agenda’s that he supports.
I know that can be done, but am not convinced all computers show that.
If java script is fully allowed, you may be correct.
The actual IP address can be spoofed, I never have, but the bad guys can and do spoof location. And then there are the people who use VPN to a search engine to not show original IP.
In the past, I did have a website for a couple of years. Long ago. Many websites are not data collectors. They are the ones who are not interested in click bate.
It wasn’t the site it was the metrics that collected the data.
If you own the metrics...
