The NY Post says CEO Mark Zuckerberg’s apologies didn’t cut it, while Charles Hurt uses humor in his column on the Big Dork.  The bottom line is simple, if people are truly concerned about their privacy rights, Facebook will fade away as people stop using it.  Mr. Zuckerberg won’t have to have Artificial Intelligence monitoring the content to block “hate” speech before it is posted and Congress certainly will not need to regulate, or even worse, collect the data, being collected now.  Charles Hurt said in his column, “if you post on your Facebook page all about your insatiable passion for fluffy pink unicorns, then you are very likely to become a target of the fluffy pink unicorn industry.”  There is something wrong if you haven’t figured that out.  I just hope that Mr. Zuckerberg drops the pretense of being unbiased and lets conservatives have their say.
