Your Private Lancer

Spoiler Alert: You know that story about your data being stolen? It will be followed by another story explaining that things are even worse than originally thought. And so it is with the Facebook scandal. The company now says that Cambridge Analytica accessed up to 87 million people’s data. Facebook also explained that “‘malicious actors’ took advantage of search tools on its platform, making it possible for them to discover the identities and collect information on most of its 2 billion users worldwide.”

+ But if you didn’t care about the data of 50 million people being compromised, with the 87 million number really make a difference? I’m guessing the answer is no. And the market is guessing the same thing. Facebook’s stock bounced back after Zuck say he hadn’t observed “any meaningful impact” on the company’s business.

+ I hate to say I told you so, but it’s like I explained when this scandal first broke. When it comes to privacy invasions, you don’t give a shit.
