    This entire thing with Facebook data and Cambridge Analytica is a non-issue in comparison to the actual depth of data being collected and used by various nefarious actors

    And the real kicker is that the entire thing is driven, at its core, by government entities with massive amounts of money and political power behind them

    Must feel mighty hypocritical for Mark to be sitting up there thinking about all the occasions where he was essentially forced to open up his back-end for the powers that be or risk being litigated out of existence

    You think like, Facebook even has gotten a NSL in the past three years? They get earmarked SAP type money for sure.

    Actually this wiki page doesn't tell you anything unless you know about it already

    This lawsuit was essentially a big signal in the sky to the tech world that once companies got big enough they would be slaves to the political nonsense of the age - that they did not have the option to set themselves aside from the world of politics.

    I have no doubt facebook is mined extensively by various political and government entities - both with and without Zucc's knowledge and consent.

    Hmm seems WaPo is really pushing the "Zucc is evil" angle

    You've completely misjudged the relationship of power that Facebook has with the US Government. The US isn't some powerful, dictatorial entity in any aspect. Look no further than any other industry: banking, manufacturing, defense; it is ludicrous to say that USG has the marionettes on any of these industries, rather the opposite is put forth, and the USG is just some nanny type system with a chief concern of filling the pockets of industry C-levels.

    Mark Zuckerberg is just the most powerful man in the world.

    This is all just a facade, the USG has no teeth and is no China for sure.

    You can post as many Obama-era NSL's as you want, but those can easily invalidated with one simple observation: the FBI under Comey was a rogue, overstepping organization and as a result, Trump fired him.

    If you really think the NSA is better at collecting data than Google/Facebook, you're delusional

    Anytime Ewiz agrees with you you can safely assume you are 100% wrong

    You're thinking that the USG is some China like entity, but they're not. China is some China type entity, and has produced the actual "tech giant slaves" you want to think that Zuckerberg is.

    Trump firing Comey is the only thing keeping us out of complete manipulative Hell.
