Deep Dive: #FTC Negotiating Multi-Billion Dollar Fine For Facebook’s Privacy Scandals; Violating 2011 Accord

The FTC’s probe of Facebook began in March of last year in response to big social’s entanglement with #CambridgeAnalytica, a political consultancy firm connected to a U.S. subsidiary (SHELL COMPANY) of a UK defense contractor #SCLGroup, (Strategic Communication Laboratories)
#SCL improperly accessed data on 87 million of the social site’s users. According to reports, #Facebook knew for an entire three years that #CambridgeAnalytica was abusing and misusing user data but did absolutely nothing.
The TRUTH About #CambridgeAnalyticaScandal Is Bigger Than Just #Facebook #MyDataMyChoice

Beneath #MarkZuckerberg's crocodile tears apology to at least #50million users of #Facebook, there is a DEEPER SECRET of the mysterious firm #CambridgeAnalytica

#Facebook tried to quietly announce a bug it discovered on its platform. From Sept 13 to Sept 25, 2018, 3rd-party apps were given access to users’ photos beyond what they were supposed have. The developers got access to photos, users didn’t actually post.
The NYTimes reported a bombshell in December of last year detailing the secret relationship #Facebook had with the tech companies #Amazon #Microsoft #Spotify #Yahoo just to name a few of the 150 companies.
#Facebook stated the #hackers took advantage of a “vulnerability” in #FacebooksCode that gave the attackers access to special #DigitalKeys that keep people (50 million) logged into their accounts without needing to re-enter a password.

Facebook Gave #DeviceMakers DEEP ACCESS to Data on Users and Friends
The company formed data-sharing partnerships with #Apple, #Samsung and #dozens of other #DeviceMakers, raising new concerns about its #PrivacyProtections

Before 2011 it may come to the reader’s surprise #Facebook was embroiled in #DataScandal after scandal. In 2010 Facebook got caught giving advertisers its users’ names, ages, hometowns, and occupations simply from clicking an ad.
2007 #FacebookScandal with its forced #Beacon advert software. It was #tracking people’s web activities outside social net site to other websites. Facebook is sued in 2008 for violating #FedWiretapLaw when it began monitoring/publishing users’ activities
#Facebook said that it learned a great deal from #Beacon in 2009, but then continued these type of #DeceptiveMarketing practices selling its users’ data years later. #Facebook started partnering with #DataBrokerFirms in 2013 after the #2011FTC ordeal.
In 2013 #Facebook faced another #DataScandal, when a bug was discovered by a white hat that exposed the email addresses and phone numbers of #6millionFacebookUsers to anyone who had some connection to the person.
Although #Facebook has had a plethora of scandals in its past, recently it feels like its downfall was with the emergence of a whistleblower, #ChristoperWylie, thanks to the #CambridgeAnalyticaScandal.
Last year, Vice reported another bizarre story about #Facebook using its #microphone to #listen in on users. The author wrote they were talking about Japan with a friend, then subsequently received ads for flights to Tokyo.
Hilariously enough, #Facebook’s first president, #SeanParker, #accused the social media giant of #ExploitingHuman “vulnerability” using psychology in 2017 when he revealed all of the #CompaniesSecrets.

Turns out #WikiLeaks founder #JulianAssange was right: #Facebook is “the most appalling #SpyMachine that has ever been invented.” Or, as a CBS report written in 2011 stated, #SocialMedia Is a Tool of the CIA. Seriously.”

There is only one way to go from here for #Facebook and its #stocks — and that’s #PlungingDown to the concrete pavement.
