Facebook is complicit, not a victim, in the abuse and misuse of personal data
I was always curious why Facebook, did not have a “dislike” button to complement its “like” button. Now we know. The Cambridge Analytica outrage is now a major scandal — both financially and morally — for the multi-billion-dollar business. Surprisingly, and disappointingly for some, the scandal is not about politics or elections. Instead it’s the massive internal breach of data; the attempted cover-up; the failure in duty of care by the tech giant and a cratering of trust. This despite Facebook spin and the ready co-operation of the anti-Trump sections of the media.
