US lawmakers to probe Zuckerberg over Facebook data-privacy contensionThis week, Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg testified before members of Congress, splitting his visit into two days of questioning. There were expected queries regarding the Cambridge Analytica data breach scandal, about whether Facebook has grown too large and could be considered a monopoly, and how to better regulate the platform, as a firestorm rocks over its data privacy scandal, with pressure mounting for new regulations on social media platforms.

And, all of a sudden, I start receiving advertisements for chocolate. What if I don’t want to receive those commercial advertisements?”Read More
