Absolutely ridiculous: Milliardbøde is our struggle for Facebook

What must it cost, if you shatter the democracies in the entire world with an algorithm that is built to push itself up among the world's richest?

What is the cost of it, if one's social network requires life and give the mass murderers and liars a platform to spread their messages to millions of people?

Facebook and its founder Mark Zuckerberg gave yourself the answer in this week, when the company presented its latest financial figures. Here, there is devoted three billion dollars to face the fine of up to five billion dollars, which Facebook expects to have in the home member state of the UNITED states.


However, as among other things the renowned tech commentator Kara Swisher explained in the New York Times, so is this amount just a 'lint' for a company of Facebook's size.

'How can I describe the fine?'

'As a p-fine. It is not a speeding ticket. Not a fine to run with the spirits in the blood. A p-fine,' she writes furious and points out that there are at least a zero behind the amount before the fine is worth talking about.

Much to suggest also that the fine is only a beginning. For while the company itself intends to get rid of paying what amounts to less than ten percent of its stock of cash, so are politicians in both the UNITED states and other parts of the world on the rampage.

it can be said that one of the senior democrats in the senate finance committee, Ron Wyden, Mark Zuckerberg is personally responsible for Facebook's many breaches of the rules governing the protection of privacy.

Listed in Denmark

While Facebook meet the demands and interventions in other parts of the world, it is fairly quiet in Denmark. Here is the official response typically to refer to the european rules.

so far There have not been specific interventions to Facebook and similar companies.


- When looking at the Zuckerbers misleading statements, his personal control over Facebook, and his role in the crucial decisions on the sharing of user data, and we must hold him personally responsible for these breaches of the law, says the high-ranking politician.

Also in Canada, there is a lawsuit on the way against Facebook for its breach of privatlivslovene and its lack of willingness to behave responsibly.

- It is very worrying when you look at the huge amount of personal data that users have given to Facebook, says the country's data commissioner, Daniel Therrien, to The Guardian.

The canadian authorities believe that Facebook is talking with two tongues.

- The promise publicly to do something, but refuses to actually address the serious problems we have found. Or to acknowledge that they have broken the law.

Facebook has declined to comment on the matter.
