“Mr. Zuckerberg, would you be comfortable sharing with us the name of the hotel you stayed in last night?”
This is what Senator Dick Durbin said to Zuck, which got some laughs, of course. I'm sure you can guess what Zuck responded with.
I realize this SPlog might seem like clickbait, given that this is more of a national (eh, global) issue. However, given that it's relevant to most everyone, seeing Durbin question Facebook Overlord Mark Zuckerberg at yesterday's hearing, it feels like an OK thing to post given that he's an Illinois representative.
A few weeks back, I posted about former U of I Professor Dr. Safiya Noble discussing this issue of privacy and Facebook. Yesterday, the hearing you've all been seeing float across the internet, and be made into memes time and time again, happened.
Watch Durbin's questioning first, and then go to the quick 3 minute highlight reel to check out what you missed. The whole testimony is out there, but that's five hours long. So, have fun with that if you desire.
