Sen. Wyden says Zuckerberg deserves potential jail time for privacy lapses


KRISTINA PARTSINEVELOS, SCOTT MARTIN AND STEVE FORD. DEMOCRAT OREGON SENATOR RON WYDEN TURNING UP THE HEAT ON FACEBOOK, DEMANDING ITS CEO, MARK ZUCKERBERG, FACE THE CONSEQUENCES OF HIS COMPANY’S PRIVACY VIOLATIONS, SAYING THIS IN AN INTERVIEW THAT’S PUBLISHED TODAY. QUOTE, MARK ZUCKERBERG HAS REPEATEDLY LIED TO THE AMERICAN PEOPLE ABOUT PRIVACY. I THINK HE OUGHT TO BE HELD PERSONALLY ACCOUNTABLE, WHICH IS EVERYTHING FROM FINANCIAL FINES TO AND LET ME UNDERLINE THIS, THE POSSIBILITY OF A PRISON TERM, END QUOTE. LET’S BRING IN FOX NEWS SENIOR JUDICIAL ANALYST, JUDGE ANDREW NAPOLITANO. JUDGE, TECH CRUNCH JUST COMING OUT WITH A NEW DATA BREACH, 419 MILLION RECORDS OF SEVERAL DATA BASES WORLDWIDE HAVE BEEN RELEASED AND THEY SAID THE SERVER ON WHICH THIS DATA BASE WAS LOCATED WAS NOT PROTECTED BY A PASSWORD AND FURTHERMORE, ANYBODY COULD HAVE FOUND ACCESS TO THE DATA BASE. THAT GIVES MORE FUEL TO THE FIRE OF WHETHER OR NOT SOMEBODY LIKE ZUCKERBERG COULD BE HELD PERSONALLY LIABLE AND GO TO JAIL AS A RESULT OF THESE RELEASES.>>WELL, THIS IS GROSS NEGLIGENCE WHICH IS A VERY EXTREME FORM OF NEGLIGENCE BUT UNFORTUNATELY FOR SENATOR WYDEN, IT IS NOT A CRIME. AS HE KNOWS, IT IS NOT A CRIME FOR HIM TO LIE AND IT’S NOT A CRIME FOR MARK ZUCKERBERG TO LIE, ASSUMING NEITHER IS UNDER OATH AND ASSUMING NEITHER IS CERTIFYING SOMETHING TO BE TRUE. RIGHT NOW, THE AMERICAN PUBLIC IS PROTECTED BY LAWS THAT REQUIRE, BECAUSE OF A CONTRACTUAL RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN FACEBOOK AND ITS CUSTOMERS, REQUIRE FACEBOOK WHEN IT RECEIVES CONFIDENTIAL INFORMATION TO SECURE IT. THEY OBVIOUSLY HAVEN’T. THESE BREACHES YOU ARE TALKING ABOUT ARE EGREGIOUS AND OVER THE TOP BUT THEY ARE NOT CRIMINAL. IF SENATOR WYDEN — YET. IF SENATOR WYDEN WANTS TO MAKE THEM CRIMINAL AND APPARENTLY HE DOES, YOU SENT ME EARLIER TODAY LEGISLATION THAT HE’S INTRODUCING THIS WEEK WHICH WOULD MAKE THIS TYPE OF THING CRIMINAL AND HOLD CEOs CRIMINALLY LIABLE — DAVID: WHY ARE YOU POINTING TO STEVE FORBES?>>BECAUSE HE’S A FAMOUS RICH CEO. OBVIOUSLY, BECAUSE OF THE CONSTITUTION, YOU CAN’T MAKE SOMETHING CRIMINAL RETROACTIVE BUT IF HE CAN GET THE VOTES IN THE SENATE AND THE PRESIDENT TO GO ALONG WITH IT, HE CAN DO IT LOOKING FORWARD.>>IS THIS LIKE WHAT THE GOVERNMENT DID IN THE LATE 1800s WHEN THEY SAID — WHEN THEY BROUGHT IN THE FIRST DEEP STATE ADMINISTRATIVE AGENCY, NEARLY WRECKED THE RAILROAD INDUSTRY?>>YES. YES.>>IS THIS THE SAME KIND OF THING? THIS IS THE SAME KIND OF THING. I HAVE TO BE A LITTLE SNARKY HERE. FOR THE GOVERNMENT TO COMPLAIN THAT A PRIVATE ENTITY IS FAILING TO SAFEGUARD PRIVACY, THE HYPOCRISY. NOTHING VIOLATES PRIVACY MORE THAN THE GOVERNMENT. YOU ARE EXACTLY RIGHT. THIS IS PROBABLY THE LEFT PERSONIFIED BY SENATOR WYDEN WANTING TO GET THEIR HANDS ON SOMEBODY WHO, IN THEIR OPINION, GOT TOO RICH TOO FAST, TOO BIG, AND THEY DON’T LIKE SOMETHING THAT’S BIGGER AND RICHER THAN THE CONGRESS IS.>>THIS IS IN ADVANCE OF CIVILIZATION THAT HE’S NOT PROPOSING TO BURN THEM AT THE STAKE LIKE WITCHES.>>THANK YOU FOR BEING HERE. I DON’T LIKE FACEBOOK. I DON’T HAVE A FACEBOOK ACCOUNT, BELIEVE IT OR NOT. ONE OF FEW PEOPLE IN AMERICA WHO DOESN’T. WHAT I DON’T UNDERSTAND ABOUT THIS IS WHY WOULD ANYONE GIVE THEIR PHONE NUMBER TO FACEBOOK? WHY WOULD ANYONE GIVE INFORMATION THEY WANT TO BE PRIVATE TO FACEBOOK? IN MY OPINION, THIS IS JUST PEOPLE MAKING A MISTAKE AND PROVIDING THIS INFORMATION TO FACEBOOK AND THE QUESTION I HAVE FOR YOU, IS THIS A VIOLATION OF THE CONTRACT THAT FACEBOOK HAS WITH THEIR USERS? BECAUSE IF IT’S NOT, I DON’T SEE, YOU KNOW, HOW FACEBOOK COULD BE HELD LEGALLY OR CRIMINALLY LIABLE.>>YOU KNOW, YOU AND I MIGHT BE OF THE WRONG GENERATION, FORGIVE ME FOR SAYING THAT, BUT THERE’S SOMETHING SO ADDICTIVE TO YOUNG PEOPLE, MAYBE KRISTINA CAN TELL US IN A FEW MINUTES, WHO WANT TO REVEAL EVERYTHING THROUGH FACEBOOK SO THEIR FRIENDS AND EVEN STRANGERS CAN KNOW EVERYTHING ABOUT THEM. IS YOUR QUESTION TO ME, DO YOU LOSE THE RIGHT TO PRIVACY IN INFORMATION YOU GIVE TO FACEBOOK, YES AND NO. IF FACEBOOK CONFINES IT TO THE PEOPLE FOR WHOM YOU INTEND IT, YOU DO NOT LOSE YOUR RIGHT TO PRIVACY BUT IF YOU INTEND TO GIVE YOUR PHONE NUMBER TO YOUR 1500 FOLLOWERS AND FACEBOOK EXPOSES IT TO 150 MILLION PEOPLE, THEY HAVE VIOLATED THEIR CONTRACT WITH YOU. IT’S A CIVIL VIOLATION AND YOU HAVE A CAUSE OF ACTION AGAINST THEM IF YOU CAN QUANTIFY THE DAMAGES. IT IS ABSOLUTELY NOT CRIMINAL.>>MY POINT IS I WOULD NEVER GIVE MY PHONE NUMBER TO ANYBODY, IF I DIDN’T WANT IT TO BE PUBLIC INFORMATION. SO TO SOME EXTENT, PEOPLE ARE CRYING ABOUT INFORMATION THEY VOLUNTARILY HANDED OVER TO FACEBOOK.>>THEORETICALLY, IF SOMEONE SUED FACEBOOK BECAUSE THEIR PHONE NUMBER GOT OUT TO 400 MILLION PEOPLE, THE DEFENSE WOULD BE WHAT DID YOU THINK WAS GOING TO HAPPEN WHEN YOU GAVE IT TO FACEBOOK? YOU KNOW WHAT FACEBOOK DOES. SORT OF AN ASSUMPTION OF THE RISK ARGUMENT.>>WE ARE FOCUSING ON PHONE NUMBERS AND STEVE MOORE COMPLAINING HE DOESN’T UNDERSTAND THE YOUNGER GENERATION. I WOULD LIKE TO POINT OUT SCOTT IS CLOSER IN AGE THAN MOST –>>WHY DID YOU GUYS LEAVE ME OUT OF THAT?>>TO THAT POINT, EVEN AIRLINES, YOU GIVE YOUR PHONE NUMBER TO AIRLINES TO RECEIVE NOTIFICATIONS. IT HAPPENS ACROSS THE BOARD. MOST OF THE PEOPLE, OLD OR YOUNG, DON’T READ THE FINE PRINT. THE ISSUE HERE IS NOT JUST THE PHONE NUMBERS. WHAT ABOUT THE FACT OF FACIAL RECOGNITION? FACEBOOK WAS CONDUCTING FACIAL RECOGNITION AND STORING THAT INFORMATION ON 60 MILLION PEOPLE WITHOUT THEIR CONSENT. ISN’T THAT SOMETHING, TOO? AND TO YOUR STATEMENT, WHICH I FIND VERY INTERESTING, WE CAN’T GO BACK IN TIME, BUT WE CAN GO FORWARD. SO IF FACEBOOK, IF THERE’S ANOTHER DATA BREACH IN THE COMING MONTHS, IF MORE PHONE NUMBERS ARE REVEALED, ISN’T THAT A CASE FOR CRIMINAL LAW AND NOT CIVIL?>>WELL, THAT’S WHAT SENATOR WYDEN WANTS IT TO BE. IF MARK SUCCEE IF MARK ZUCCEE IF MARK ZUCKEE IF MARK ZUCKERBERG CERTIFIES NUMBERS, EARNINGS, TO BE ACCURATE AND HE KNOWS THEY’RE INACCURATE, HE’S COMMITTED THE CRIME OF PERJURY BY PUTTING HIS SIGNATURE ON IT. SENATOR WYDEN WANTS IT TO BE IF ZUCKERBERG IN ONE OF HIS MEETINGS IN SILICON VALLEY SAYS SUCH AND SUCH A THING DOESN’T HAPPEN AND IT DOES, HE WANTS TO MAKE THAT CRIMINAL. HE WANTS TO CRIMINALIZE THE TYPE OF CORPORATE PUFFERY AND LANGUAGE THAT IS TYPICAL OF CORPORATE EXECUTIVES AND MEMBERS OF CONGRESS, SENATOR WYDEN, AND HE WANTS TO MAKE THAT A CRIME. THE GOVERNMENT’S NOT GOING TO WANT TO PROSECUTE THAT. THE DOJ DOESN’T WANT TO GO THERE.>>DON’T YOU THINK IT’S A PROBLEM? IT’S CONSTANTLY HAPPENING. GOOGLE TODAY GOING AFTER CHILDREN ON YOUTUBE. IT’S CONSTANTLY HAPPENING. I DON’T THINK IT’S NECESSARILY A POLITICAL THING. MAYBE THE SENATOR HAS INTENTION, BUT ACROSS THE BOARD, COMPANIES ARE DOING THAT. DAVID: LET’S HEAR FROM THAT YOUNG MAN IN CHICAGO.>>I THINK TO THAT POINT, GUYS, THESE FINES, WHAT DO WE HAVE, A RECORD FINE FOR FACEBOOK, $5 BILLION. ONCE UPON A DAY. THE STOCK RALLIES, I MEAN, THE FINES ARE FALLING ON DEAF EARS. I’M WONDERING IF THIS IS ALMOST BEST HANDLED IN THE BOARDROOM BY SHAREHOLDERS WHO EVENTUALLY WOULD VOTE OUT ZUCK OR SHERYL TO PUT THEM ON A FIRST OR LAST-NAME BASIS IN THE SENSE THE SHAREHOLDERS WILL EVENTUALLY TAKE OVER THESE COMPANIES AND REALIZE THESE EXECUTIVES ARE BAD FOR THE COMPANY VERSUS THE GOVERNMENT DOING IT.>>THAT WOULD DEPEND ON HOW MUCH VOTING STOCK, I DON’T WANT TO GET TOO INTO THE WEEDS HERE, SHERYL AND ZUCK HAVE. ZUCK CONTROLS THE VOTING STOCK. THAT IS CERTAINLY A FREE MARKET SOLUTION, SCOTT. THE IDEA OF CRIMINALIZING SPEECH, SPEECH WHICH IS TYPICAL OF CORPORATE EXECUTIVES FOR WHATEVER PURPOSE, NOT UNDER OATH, IS A VERY VERY DANGEROUS SLIPPERY SLOPE. DAVID: ONE OTHER QUESTION. SARBANES-OXLEY IS ONE THING WE CAN DO FOR THE TECH INDUSTRY, THAT CRIMINALIZES ACTIVITY IF PEOPLE, BOARD MEMBERS, MISREPRESENT THE FINANCIAL DATA THEY COME OUT WITH. HOWEVER, WE HAD THIS TERRIBLE FINANCIAL CRISIS AND WE HAD ALL OF THESE LIAR LOANS BEING PACKED IN –>>TALKING ABOUT ’08. DAVID: CORRECT. THEY WERE BEING PACKAGED BY BANKS. NOBODY WENT TO JAIL FOR THAT. SO YOU HAVE A LAW THAT IS NEVER ENFORCED.>>RIGHT. THAT IS CALLED PROSECUTORIAL DISCRETION. THE BUSH ADMINISTRATION HAD FOUR MONTHS TO GO. PRESIDENT OBAMA WAS ELECTED TO OFFICE TWO MONTHS AFTER THE ’08 CRASH. HE HAD EIGHT YEARS IN OFFICE. A LIBERAL DEMOCRAT DIDN’T PROSECUTE ANY OF THESE PEOPLE FOR CAUSING ’08. WHY? THE GOVERNMENT HAD A LOT TO DO WITH IT. FANNIE AND FREDDIE.>>JUDGE, HOW ABOUT THE LIES WE HEARD ON HEALTH CARE? THE LIES WE WERE TOLD ON HEALTH CARE FOR YEARS AND YEARS AND YEARS, NOBODY EVER PAID FOR THOSE. DAVID: VERY GOOD POINT.>>WHEN ROGER CLEMENS WAS PROSECUTED FOR LYING ABOUT THE CONTENT OF HIS URINE –>>SAMMY SOSA?>>HIS LAWYER SAID TO MEMBERS OF CONGRESS BUT YOU GUYS ARE ALLOWED TO LIE WHEN YOU ASK MY CLIENT QUESTIONS.

  1. All these pampered public servants/ beauracrats & down the line get to experience the Hardy FEDERAL Brigg security life up close & personal WITH ALLL ITS LIMMITATIONS ,OH YEAH & IN COURT WHEN THIER (ONE) ATTOURNEY STARTS ACTING LIKE HE DOES'NT KNOW WHERE HE IS THE PRESIDING COURT OFFICER MAINTAINS SENTENCE STRUCTURE RIGHT THROUGH (DON'T EVEN ASK – THAT DOES'NT EXIST HERE !) REGIMENTED PROCESS – ALONG WITH THE MILITARY' CORRECT DEFINITIONS OF EVERYTHING IN THE WORLD – OH ! THIS IS SOOO INTERESTING-YOU DID'NT KNOW YOUR ATTOURNEY WAS SUCH A DUMB SHT – & GETTING PITTYLESSLY- INCOHEARANTLY STEAMROLLED THROUGH THE ALARMING PACE OF CORRECT IN RESPECT TO FACT MILITARY PROCEDURE ! DOOOOOOOMED🥺!

  2. IT WOULD MAKE MORE SENSE FOR OUR GOVERNMENT TO COMPLAIN TO FACEBOOK FOR THEIR CENSORSHIP WHICH IS ILLEGAL ALREADY. THEY HAVE NO RIGHT TO CENSOR WE THE PEOPLE…NOT EVEN IF THEY WANT TO SAY IT IS IN THE RULES…IT IS ILLEGAL NO AMOUNT OF CORPORATE RULES CAN OVERRIDE AMERICAN LAW!

  3. Simple fix, we already have a DO NOT CALL REGISTRY and all Congress has to do is add to this Act wording that also says that any entity that supplies phone numbers to a third party is also guilty of a crime and will pay the maximum $16,000 for EACH phone call made and pay the receiver a $10,000 fine for each call made. The phone companies know who is making the call and to who it was placed to along with what time it was made whether you answer it or not.

  4. It would be nice if Justice Napolitano actually knew what he was talking about. He almost never hits the mark. Congress can create or restore individual privacy laws TOMORROW if they so chose. There is no general immunity from lying. Specific people in specific situations have immunity, e.g. Congress and News Media – however, a spoken lie or written lie when acted upon to a persons detriment creates civil liability and can create criminal liability if Congress so chooses. Warranty of implied covenant of safety on Consumer goods, libel and slander, and release of private information all have remedy in civil Court. The 1st Amendment nor our Founding Fathers immunizes any person (with the exception of Congress and Courts) from deliberate lies the nature of which are relied upon by a person or set of persons. There is no impairment at law – Fraud in a Contract allows a contract to be rescinded, failure to advise of work related hazards under OSHA creates civil/criminal liability, representing false data on a drugs safety and effectiveness..the wholesomeness of food, etc. is all illegal. I believe one of the fundamental issues with America today is the concept that 'no one' is subject to punishment for lying to American citizens, persons, etc. Isn't that what the whole deal is with the Trump cooperated with Russia is all about ? Are those Congress people who endorsed this in no way responsible – what in the case of an actual attempted coup ? We need more truth from Politicians, the news and business leaders….NOT LESS.

  5. When the Senator sends a referral to the Justice Dept for James Clapper we will worry about Mark Zuckerberg. If people are dumb enough to trust Facebook with anything I have no sympathy.

  6. No Facebook ask for your phone number so they can reset your password and protect your privacy. At least so they say. It's not just people willy nilly giving them their phone numbers. So, in doing that you give your trust to them. They violate that trust by allowing that information to be leaked or sold. F Facebook.

  7. Facebook and YouTube NEED to go under !!!!!!!! And YouTube and other of these corrupt leftist media outlets as well !!!!!!!!!!
    They are too much of a monopoly…corruption !!!!!!!!!!!

  8. The monopoly is what's un- lawful ! Manipulating government with bribes ! Like the federal reserve insider information to it who it wants to bribe in government ! The rest they black mail !

  9. Your All forgetting that Zucker stole the FB Idea from his classmates the Winklevoss Brothers
    and cost him millions in compensation
    Zucker is a Thief so for him to Constantly Lie is Normal
    ohh…and your All helping him make more money if your dumb enough to use FB !

  10. Facebook always did and probably always will, leak like a sieve. Every time Zuckerberg is questioned, he always acts as though they are taking new measures to prevent personal data being stolen, and that it will never happen again. Of course it always does happen again.

  11. I use to enjoy listening to Napolitano views – I pay no attention to him based on his past constant negative views on how much credibility the Mueller will have on Trump. Accordingly to him, Trump was probably on his way out the door.
    I think Fox needs a new judicial analyst.

  12. Consider how facesucks was founded, by the theft of the platform from two friends. I would love to see this arrogant prick crushed.

  13. I think that this is c***.you know that Facebook and Mark zukerberg and google and there owner seem to be free and clear to do anything they want. and they just laugh and take Congress to lunch when people say they should be prosecuted because they know that they are being paid by our own govt.

  14. Wyden deserves prison time too for standing with the guvmanure of Oregon to turn it into a sanctuary state and escorting an illegal into this Country. He doesn’t understand our LAWS ????

  15. The democrat politician is screaming to get a piece of the pie is out of the party that's why is saying all those things

  16. People "gave" their phone number to Facebook only for two-factor authentication in the hopes of better cybersecurity controls.

  17. Delete facebook app from all your devices! They log all your GPS data and every word you say, or write. You are the product not the consumer.

  18. I agree. He also lied under oath to Congress into the Senate he should be charged with perjury and Facebook needs to be dismantled. It should not have the protection that it has based on the fact that it is shown biased over and over again. They should be under the same as any news organization. However I do not believe that the government should control it our government hasn't shown to be honest in many ways such as the FBI the doj congressman senators Governor's mayors. So until we have one justice system for all the American citizens will not have faith in anything government ran. Mark Z is an arrogant lying bias paid puppet 4 the evil Elite example Soros and Clinton can name a couple

  19. One of the reasons people put their phone numbers etc into FB and other apps. Is that the apps sort of nag you to finish filling out all your profile info. Just saying…

  20. FOX NEWS needs to get rid of Nappy. He's a crooked Mew Jersey layer in a black robe. He's a Trump hater. He's a Libertarian who would wreck the Constitution if it furthered his career. that's why he works for FOX.

  21. This dude should be in jail for violating our rights and lying to us all! He stole our information and sold it without our consent!!!! He broke the contract, and it is a crime!!! I wish FB would be taken over by people who are honest and have some kind of human decency!

  22. Throw him in jail make sure Facebook is taken over by the conservative right so we can start censoring the left they are the ones pushing hate and violence and take out all accounts linked to terrorists

  23. Zuckerburg deserves to be thrown from a Helicopter screaming while his family watches for the EVIL he has done to MILLIONS of people globally.
    And if he doesn't get his commupance in this life, he will get his deserved punishment from God almighty on judgement day.
    Thay you can beleive

    UNFILTERED UNAPOLOGETIC TRUTH🕇🇺🇸

  24. "Sen. Wyden says Zuckerberg deserves potential jail time"

    IN OTHER WORDS HES TOO SCARED TO SAY 'ZUCKERBERG SHOULD BE CHARGED WITH A CRIME'

  25. The phone # is part of a 2 step security verification in which a pin # is texted to you. Also it can be used as a recovery method for forgotten pw or un

  26. I think big tech should habe to get a signature to collect private info. It shouldn't be part of using the service.written permission must be required.

  27. Toss Zuckerberg in jail⚖️⚖️⚖️⚖️⚖️⚖️⚖️⚖️⚖️⚖️⚖️⚖️⚖️⚖️⚖️⚖️⚖️⚖️⚖️⚖️⚖️⚖️⚖️

  28. FOX NEWS, SENATOR WYDEN: "FACEBOOK's CEO ZUCKERBERG SHOULD BE HELD "PERSONALLY ACCOUNTABLE" FOR LYING" (TO AMERICA)!!! "Only Under Oath a Lie is a CRIME"!!!
    SAID JUDGE ANDREW NAPOLITANO!!! 419 MILLION PRIVATE FACEBOOK MEMBER'S RECORDS WERE HACKED!!! SOUNDS LIKE A $$$ 838 MILLION CLASS ACTION!!!
    Signed AKA, wtkjr.!!! REMEMBER, OBAMA LIED "IF YOU LIKE YOUR DOCTOR, YOU CAN KEEP YOUR DOCTOR!!! YOU CAN LIE TO 330 MILLION AMERICANS, BUT NOT UNDER OATH!!!

  29. FOX NEWS, DID ZUCKERBERG LIED TO CONGRESS??? THAT IS A CRIME OR FORGET ANY FUTURE CONGRESSIONAL HEARINGS!!!
    Signed AKA, wtkjr.!!!

  30. If this technology is so scary in the hands of a corporation, how scary would it be if the USA government or a global government was openly in control of all this type of technology? We are so close to becoming a world very similar to the science fiction movies that were scary thrillers when I was a young adult. If it is in a movie, the human mind is capable of creating it in some form or another. When you set up an account and use a code texted to you on your phone (as a security feature) to allow you to enter your account as the government does for Social Security accounts, then that entity has your telephone number to use whatever way they want to use it. Once that door was opened, your personal privacy went out that door and that door is too big to close again. This is just another way the government is going to use to get money from these companies to use for their expanding and changing the government and getting control over this technology. They will try to make it look like they are protecting We the people but, in fact, they will be taking control of our lives through the technologies to which we have become addicted. When we allow some corporation or corporations to link all these technologies and a form of "Skynet" is created (as currently is trying to get government approval) We will no longer have rights or privacy. All we will have is entertainment and convenience. We will be able to talk hands free and run our lives by just speaking the words but we will be just a step away from giving up our freedom for these things.

  31. Just another crook who happens to be a grandson of the Rockefellers. so therefore, another leftist out to take people's money! He should go to jail!

  32. When Facebook first became popular and people were saying you can put all this information on it I didn't trust it then and I really don't trust them now. From the very get go I thought this was such a bad idea.

  33. how do we know that it was facebook phone numbers? did facebook admit that? also since when has a CEO of a tech company been arrested for cyber breaches? does anyone have these questions or am i a lone wolf?

  34. This Guest & even Judge Napolitano, as brilliant as he is – but unfortunately – it's massively bigger than that I'm afraid, it's BIG BROTHER BIG-the FUTURISTIC sci-fy movie meets reality, big ! They are clearly missing the BIG PICTURE -& thinking on a very minuscule scale, but FB does not operate on a small scale, they are HUGE thieves & master spies of OUR info & everything we ALL do …. Facebook has been collecting info on all people, both users and NON users of Facebook – yes everyone on the internet & off … And very very little info is actually given to open an account, in Facebook… But, that info isn't what is being violated – because FB & Google have taken this & their spying, surveillance, and theft of ALL our info & this has gone to completely a different level, far beyond just a simple FB account profile, which is not much more than name, dob, & optional phone #… none of which you have to be completely honest about, if you don't want to give them your info. … But – far beyond that info – they document & record every move we ALL make – FB users & non-FB users alike, on our phones, & all devices, thru the ordinary internet & when using Facebook, also thru our smart TVS, & our wi-fi cars … yes they are all listening, GPS or VPN-location finders, & camera operated devices that record us, our locations, our voices, our activities & all our contacts – all the time by FB & GOOGLE, tracking, logging, recording all our interests, activities, contacts, what we say, where we go, & what we do… – they steal info from your private chats – messaging one on one to other FB persons…. they record – document everything you talk about get private bits of info … they record all your actions & current locations, from GPS, again – collecting interests, where you shop, what you purchase, where you drive, and everything you do or buy, your credit card info when & where you shop, online or out, everything you do & everyone you speak to & their phone #'s, what you SAY on the telephone, what you say – in your private life when not on the phone – even if your phone is off but within hear-shot … all your devices -with microphones can & do record you & your every word & action…. No one stupidly or naively GIVES them this INFO they are stealing it !!! From your devices & phone & they record you & your actions & conversations whether the device is in use or not, as the microphone is on 24/7, & collect all your photos in your phone camera, everywhere you go – recorded with GPS on your phone, tablet, or VPN on your computer, …. STEALING INFO YOU DIDN'T AGREE TO share with them -& YOU DIDN'T GIVE THEM – WHETHER A FB USER OR NOT…. & NOT just what you do or say on FB on internet .. IT'S not just info of their users, but all persons … !… If you don't believe me – watch the congressional hearings of Zuckerberg – bringing up & questioning their spying techniques & confirms not only their capability, but their use of such master mind spying. – Listen to techno experts who know 1st hand, & know how to do it too, who'll tell you all this is not only possible – but it's being done, all the time by FB, Google & probably Amazon… So, stop being complacent, stop thinking FB users are stupid-they didn't give FB anything in comparison to this scale & you are also being tracked, monitored, logged & recorded… So, Get informed – & get mad !.. I'm no lawyer, but as much as I respect Judge Napolitano – believe he'd change his mind, if he looked into this – if he realized they have no right to the info they are collecting, & stealing from us all & seems to me, There's no doubt – THIS IS CRIMINAL – it's espionage & theft of our private info, they are stealing from us in order to sell our info to the highest bidder – that's what they do – that's their business & how they make BILLIONS of $$$$$ a year…. spying on us, taking our privacy & making money on it – working against us all….not just FB users… Sorry, but Including Both of these Gentleman -who don't have FB accounts… as well – also Victims of FB/Google if they have & use a smart phone, tablet, laptop, smart TV, computer, or wi-fi car … we are ALL being personally & CRIMINALLY VIOLATED, period….

  35. FB APP spies on your conversations including those around you ..  I believe they have broken the HIPPA laws regarding 2 friends of mine who had medical conditions and neither used a computer or FB… they were very old and had cell flip phones for phone calls, as they didn't text message either …….They were both  neighbors of mine and I used to drive them to medical appointments , shortly thereafter  they started receiving phone calls and snail mail about their medical conditions and one friend had a Medical sales appear at his door, trying to sell him products/devices for his medical condition !!!!   They asked me who I told about their medial info ,  both agreed that it was only after I started driving them to their appts. that they started to be marketed for medical supplies…..sadly both are now deceased, last year while watching the congressional hearings w/ Zuckerberg, I learned that FB does pick up conversations of those around you, it doesn't matter if those individuals Do NOT have a FB account.. those individuals information is Sold and they are Marketed ..I immediately closed my FB account and will never use their site again….. Its tragic that both went to their graves and I had no idea that FB was spying on my personal conversations with them and selling the information to medical suppliers  Who at FB will take responsibility for this clear HIPPA violation — it IS criminal !!!

  36. The big tech giants have repeatedly interfered in our elections. That alone should be enough to have them wire tapped, their finances seized and be put in jail.
