Off your Facebook

April 12, 2018

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.
