“THEY’RE CERTAINLY NOT PREPARED”: WHAT’S NEXT FOR FACEBOOK AFTER ZUCKERBERG’S MEA CULPA TOUR
After Facebook’s week from hell, investors speculate about the severity of the company’s woes

Mark Zuckerberg Thinks We’re Idiots
by Jean-Louis Gassée

Surprise: Thanks to the Cambridge Analytica revelations, we’re finding out that Facebook allowed a much broader and deeper prostitution of our private data than it had previously claimed. Facebook’s disingenuous explanations call for more questions and even less trust


Jean-Louis Gassée


... The message is clear: Zuckerberg thinks we’re idiots. How are we to believe Facebook didn’t know — and derived benefits — from the widespread abuse of user data by its developers; we just became aware of the Cambridge Analytica cockroach…how many more are under the sink?

What the F*** Was Facebook Thinking?


James Allworth
Co-host @exponentFM, Co-author @MeasureYourLife, Fellow @ClayChristensen's thinktank, writer @HarvardBiz

2013 saw one of the world’s most publicized data breaches. A Target employee inadvertently clicked on a phishing email; soon after, the personal details of over a third of all American adults were released into the wild — to be used in ways that were certainly never intended when those adults gave the data to Target ...


Target got slammed for it. People stopped shopping there that Christmas. Their stock price tanked. Their CEO got fired.
