Nice illustration why every thinking reasonable man just laughs about the EU - there they have Zuckerberg made to appear before their parliamentary sit-in and even needing to accept that the meeting will be broadcasted live - and then these clever dicks are more concerned about to shoot selfies with Zuckerberg and allow him to get out with substance-free phrases and prepared announcements and avoiding and dodging - instead of giving him a super-tough grilling that he should have gotten.

Big mouth + no brain: EU. The operetta where narcissists and self-actors star.

Zuckerberg must have had champagne afterwards. Plenty of it, but he probably did not need the alcohol to laugh himself dizzy. Maybe he just used it to wash off the unbearable scent of stupidity and recognition craving.

Oh, and btw, the IT sector and so-called big data, like it or not, are key business trechnolgies of the present and future, and American and Asian companies play this game to itsa fullest degree and with gloves taken off. The new data legislation by the EU which just came or comes into effect this week, is an economic self-mutilation, weakening Eurpean intersts between US and China even more.

This will of course not stop the EU to morally lecture the other, stronger players. With all trumps lying on the American table, all key technology nodes of the itnernet being under USA control, the big companies in the business all being American and Chinese ones, what has Europe to say here? Nothing but moral lecturing, trying to increase itsaelf in relative strength by talking the others into agreeing to weaken themselves in relation to Europe.

Thats the difference between just wanting to have Jedi magic skills for free, and actually being a Jedi and having these skills from hard training for sure.

Default Facebook suggests no compensation for European users affected by data breach

Quote:
BRUSSELS (Reuters) - Facebook is unlikely to compensate the 2.7 million European users whose data was improperly shared with political consultancy Cambridge Analytica because sensitive bank account data had not been shared, the company said on Wednesday.

The user growth rate for Facebook and twitter has stalled a while back and is steadily falling for both platforms.
Cant say I'm surprised given the scandals regarding personal data and censorship.

Twitter have recently admitted to 'shaddow banning'
Good video on here by Tim Pool - An Independent journalist I quite like.
