He just wanted to help connect family and friends on a useful media that has now exploded into a world wide scandal of modern technology. Facebook’s growth has been used by countless millions and now has been used by those who want to cause theft.

All the average user of Facebook sees is big blue square with the words”what is on your mind” but is much larger and more complex than this. Apparently Cambridge Analyze has gotten their hands on your messages and exploited them. Mr Zuckerberg is standing his ground to lay out the facts, that it was simple means of communications to your loved ones. It has gotten out of control and is now being used my criminals, ISIS and whoever else wants to use it. It easy to use and free to access, maybe too easy.
