Zuck faces the EU over Cambridge Analytica flapWill Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg say anything new?
So we want to talk about Mark Zuckerberg who is heading or he'll be meeting with the EU to discuss, once again, Cambridge Analytica, the whole data breach scandal and really answering more questions from the EU Parliament. This whole saga has been very interesting considering that he turned out the UK Parliament. Yes. And then he originally wanted to turn down the EU Parliament, and then through some Conversations later he basically said yes I'm going, and then this meeting was also supposed to be behind closed doors, and then they talked about it again and it was like okay we're gonna live stream this now. It really shows that these pressures are mounting for Facebook and Zuckerberg. Absolutely, and I think the EU in particular I think they're going to be a little bit more savvy than our US counterparts. I mean they have followed this issue a lot more closely. I think the questions are a bit more pointed. I think that Zuck is not gonna be able to get off as easily as he did in the US. I have a feeling that in the EU parliament we had much more focus on the GDPR considering that that does come from the EU, they'll be more focused on that and privacy issues. I don't think it'll be as politically charged as the one in Congress was, where they were asking about, like you know, censorship of political views or anything like that. No, I think the folks in the EU will be definitely more laser focused on privacy as the main issue.
