Facebook is Profiting from Illegal Wildlife Traffickers tweet

Zuckerberg's hearing came after the Cambridge Analytica scandal.

While there will clearly be some backlash if the company was to switch to a fee-based model, there could be some advantages as well.

On Monday, Facebook revealed that about 271,469 data belonging to Nigerians on Facebook, whose friends would have installed the "This is Your Digital Life" app, were exposed to the Cambridge Analytica data breach. A broader sustainability program, utilizing stakeholder engagement to uncover the social and environmental priorities, would have identified good governance and user data privacy as enormous areas of risk for the company. "Here is Facebook knowing this research and deliberately trying to get even younger kids to use their platform ... the last thing that kids need is to normalize this idea that relationships should take place online, that relationships should take place through a commercial product". He then went on to list several different categories of the services Facebook and other tech companies provide but Sen. Last week, in a session with the US lawmakers, the 33-year old Zuckerberg admitted that he took the blame for the data scrape and emphasized that user privacy is of utmost importance to the firm. Sullivan was at least acutely aware of the risk of regulations cementing the dominant powers when he suggested that Facebook ought to be broken up. The GDPR, aimed at bringing stronger data protection and more data privacy for citizens of the European Union, also has implications for USA firms that have a presence there. The GDPR prohibits the collection and/or use of any personal identifying data (including IP addresses) unless the user consents, and even then, the use is limited to the goal for which the data is collected in the first place.

Ben Lujan asked him whether or not Facebook collected data on users who did not have an account.

And a robust sustainability program that interacts with a company's stakeholders and reports on material sustainability risks could sure help to float issues like this before the Social Network influences another election.
