If you want to leave Facebook because of its controversial data collection, what's your alternative? Who else offers what it does, the social media platform used by around a quarter of the world's population?
The ABC reports, Facebook chief executive Mark Zuckerberg seemed slightly bewildered by this question, posed at a hearing in Washington D.C. this week.
Australian Conservatives founder Senator Cory Bernardi says something needs to be done about “big data” collection.
Zuckerberg pointed to other technology giants — Google, Apple, Amazon and Microsoft — but while their services overlap, they don't match Facebook, data point for data point.
Senator Bernardi says the ongoing Cambridge Analytica data scandal, is prompting a review of European data privacy laws next month and he’s told Paul Murray Live on Sky News a similar review should happen here in Australia.
