We at The Society found this article really interesting because it sets the stage very well for what we have in the works. Picture the platform that will be blockchain based to ensure your privacy and profit from all content shared on it. According to the article, Mark Zuckerberg took a break from testifying before the joint hearing of the Commerce and Judiciary Committees on Capitol Hill in Washington, in which he answered questions about the use of Facebook data to target American voters in the 2016 election Facebook Privacy Scandal Congress. During this break it seems a brave Associated Press photojournalist took it upon himself to take pictures of the notes and share their content which Times described as viral online.
The reason Zuckerberg was testifying in front of the joint committee was a bad look because it was about misuse of Facebook user data by political analysis firm Cambridge Analytica. Another great aspect of this article is the New York Times summary of Zuckerberg’s notes describing points including everything from whether he would resign to whether Facebook should be broken up as a monopoly power and how he would respond with it being a bad idea for America since U.S tech companies are a “key asset” and it would strengthen china. Tweets mentioned in the article related to the open binder photographs were very interesting and funny.
We at The Society feel bittersweet about the current matters because clearly the days of these monopoly like social media platform originators are nearing their end which is clear through articles like this one. However, the end of something is always just the start of a new which is our social blockchain based platform designed to secure your content using the latest in cryptography, meanwhile ensuring profit for you not just for us.
