Facebook and the hypocrisy of our Government

Watching some of the Zuckerberg testimony and it is just priceless watching the same groups of people that were okay with Lois Lerner's hard drives disappearing, Hillary Clinton's subpoenaed e-mails disappearing, spying on American citizens, taping phone calls, hiding info on who know what when on just about everything, rake this guy over the coals because he didn't know this that or the other thing about info that no reasonable person would ever expect to be kept private int he first place.


I mean talk about ****ing irony.

So all this outrage of Cambridge and election crap. Why is Obama and his people not being raked over the coals for what they knew about Russia, when they knew it and why little if anything was done?

I am not trying to pick on Obama but if we are going to go batshit crazy over Cambridge then logic says we should be going batshit crazy over anyone who knew anything about Russia and didn't do anything about it.

Watching 65-80 year old politicians grill Zuckerberg on Facebook was like me grilling a rocket scientist on data algorithms and engineering issues that helped launch the Space Station.

I did computer tech support for a straight year before things took off, and 70 percent of calls were old people who needed instructions for things like finding the power button, getting them to google.com, and putting their wireless printers on their networks.

Apparently a Senator Castor from Florida.
Only govt can spy on us. No one else. It's competition and they want a monopoly.

FB is no different than any other media. It only has one product....users. All media sells access to their users/readers/viewers. To sell it better they develop data/demographics and they sell lists and ads based on the demographics they serve. That is FB...it has a new level of demographics that has exploded the ability to target messages and know the psychographics of the user. That has great value to a marketer. Government has no place in this.

Congressmen who ask FB to help with the lack of rural broadband should be removed from the committee. The lack of Rural Broadband is not a lack of software platforms, its a lack of Broadband. Congressmen and women are clearly out of touch with any bits of understanding.

Term Limits. Must.

I don't favor regulation of FB because it's taking a hit in the marketplace already. People are moving onto other social media. I would rather encouragement of more competition.The eavesdropping is a problem though, but I would think that'd be covered under other privacy laws. I just don't know enough about those to say for sure. You can't bug someone's home or put a telescope and peer into someone's bedroom. Just because there's a digital version of the same thing is disturbing.

However, what Cruz was referring to, that you won't waste time on is such companies get shielded from certain liabilities and lawsuits if they claim to be a "open public forum" which they don't get if they're completely private. I don't know all the details, but I heard it by Cruz during another similar hearing with You Tube.

They CANNOT have it both ways. That just seems fair.

That is Facebooks business. They have data, they sell it. So does Outdoorlife, Time, NBC, and Netflix. Would you outlaw demographic media research?

Don't Regulate Facebook — That's What Zuckerberg Wants

I saw his willingness to be regulated during the hearings on TV. Plus, he said he'd work with the govt on it. Iirc, he did mention how it would reduce competition. It's no wonder he likes it.

Quote:
Zuck:I think a lot of times regulation puts in place rules that a large company like ours can easily comply with but that small start-ups can't," Zuckerberg said as he testified for the second consecutive day on Capitol Hill.
So BEWARE what you wish for.
Unlike the state, which is free to mandate that people use their "services," consumers are still free to not use Facebook.

Also, it is still the case that producers are free to create new firms that will compete with Facebook. And many have done so. Recent data suggests that Facebook users are spending less time on Facebook, and younger users are preferring to spend their time elsewhere. Facebook is expected to actually lose users in the under-25 category this year. Some will keep using Facebook-owned Instagram, but many will go to services not owned by Facebook, such as Snapchat.

For whatever reason, whether it's increased competition or a decline in social media use overall, Facebook is not bulletproof, and it is facing competition from others. True, none of Facebook's competitors are just like Facebook. But that's how competition works. Other firms offer a choice for consumers, and offer different products.

After all, we've already seen firms like Facebook be beat by competition in the past. Remember MySpace? It was once bigger than Facebook. And now it's not.

If consumers want to use social media platforms that aren't Facebook, and which offer different choices, the answer lies in greater competition. But, if greater competition is what we want, barriers to entry must be kept low, government regulations must be abolished or minimized, and consumers must be free to use or not use firms as they please. So long as this is the case, Facebook will never have a true monopoly.

Consumer preferences can always change. And sometimes they change drastically. [Remember Ma Bell?]

Get Ready for More Regulation

Unfortunately, this week's Congressional hearings with Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg suggest that things are going in a direction that will only end with increasing whatever monopoly power Facebook currently has.

But even if members of Congress had a wonderful grasp of the internet and social media, would anyone benefit from any new regulations on the industry?

Well, yes, of course some people would benefit. Those who would benefit include the government agents who will get jobs as regulators, the politicians who can score political points for passing new legislation, and the large incumbent firms that now dominate the social-media market.

Washington politicians are interested in regulating the social media world, and ultimately, this will only strengthen the big firms that dominate the industry now — while making things harder for smaller start-ups and future competitors.

Dominant Firms Control the Regulators

The other great danger in regulation exists in the fact that regulatory bodies have a tendency to be taken over by the large dominant firms themselves.

This is a common occurrence in regulatory schemes and is known as “regulatory capture.” When new regulatory bodies are created to regulate firms like Facebook and other dominant firms, the institutions with the most at stake in a regulatory agency’s decisions end up controlling the agencies themselves. We see this all the time in the revolving door between legislators, regulators, and lobbyists.

Of course you can not use Facebook or minimally use it instead of putting your whole life on it from what you had for breakfast to what you watched on TV etc.
