Dem lawmaker: ‘Looks like Zuckerberg lied to Congress’

A Democratic congressman hammered Facebook and its CEO, Mark Zuckerberg, following a report that the company is sharing large amounts of its users’ data with other companies.

“Sure looks like Zuckerberg lied to Congress about whether users have ‘complete control’ over who sees our data on Facebook," Rep. David Cicilline (D-R.I.) tweeted on Sunday.


“This needs to be investigated and the people responsible need to be held accountable,” the top Democrat on the House Judiciary antitrust subcommittee continued.


Cicilline’s tweet came in response to a Sunday New York Times story that detailed “far-reaching data partnerships” Facebook has established with roughly 60 device manufacturers, including Apple, Amazon, BlackBerry, Microsoft and Samsung over the last decade.

The partnerships allowed device makers to obtain Facebook user data like relationship status, religion and political leanings from users and also allowed for the sharing of the data of users’ Facebook friends.

Facebook had started to end these partnerships in April, according to the story.

The report raises questions over whether Facebook violated a 2011 agreement with the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) that it would not override users privacy settings without first getting their expressed consent.

Throw Zuckerberg in prison and replace him with Hillary.

Is that the plan?
