Apple, Google have apologized for privacy issues but Facebook is just sorry they got caugh...stantheman said:I agree with the editorial 100%.

The very fact that Facebook could go up to the hill and make a mockery of your country’s government in the way it did during those hearings speaks volumes to how much respect it really has for its customers. Now, while we are on that topic, who are they exactly? Do you think for a second that it is you and me that has a a Facebook account or do you think that it is those faceless organization and social influencers that has purchased the ads? I would bet that Facebook really looks at us as a commodity to be exploited in as many was as they can get away with.
I for one would be very happy for Apple to step in and clean up this very dirty aspect of social media and the internet.
