Things are looking bad for Facebook and Mark Zuckerberg. In the UK, he’s being called before Parliament. In the US, Congress and the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) want to chat. On Wall Street, Facebook stock is tanking. An attempt at crisis management fell flat. And irate users are talking about dropping the social media platform altogether since allegations surfaced that the personal data of 50 million members was used to help elect Donald Trump. — David Rovella, Bloomberg
Facebook Probed Over Data Allegedly Used by Trump. The FTC and members of Congress are investigating how the personal data of all those Facebook users allegedly made it to Cambridge Analytica, the firm that worked for Trump’s campaign.
Wishing you a very Happy New Year 2017 — with great health and success in all your projects! We all have some new year goals. Here’s a favorite quote on this topic.
“The greater danger for most of us lies not in setting our aim too high and falling short; but in setting our aim too low, and achieving our mark.” – General and US President Dwight Eisenhower
Donald Trump has won the election is a fairly clear way, but it was a close election with nearly same 48% of nationwide votes for each candidate, but the way electoral seats are setup in USA, Trump won with a wide margin over Hillary Clinton, who could not galvanize people in the same way Trump did on his side.
Donald Trump is now 45th President of USA.
It is clear that people have voted for change at any cost. Its the same theme as in Brexit in the UK, where majority of people outside London and in interior counties voted for Brexit and change of status quo irrespective of economic impact.
Trump has sold hope to millions of people across America, especially to those people who are struggling, and we can only hope that some of those hopes sold during election speeches come true.
