Democrat Senator Ron Wyden from Oregon is demanding prison term for Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg, stating he should face significant consequences for enabling his social networking platform abuse customers’ private information.
“Mark Zuckerberg has repeatedly lied to the American public about solitude. I believe he needs to be held accountable, which will be everything from fiscal penalties to — and allow me to underline that — the chance of a prison sentence,” Senator Wyden informed Portland’s Willamette Weekly paper.
“He hurt a great deal of people,” additional Wyden who introduced a bill in 2018 that could provide the US Federal Trade Commission forces to punish companies that violate customers’ information privacy, MarketWatch reported Tuesday.
Back in July, the US FTC slapped a massive $5 billion nice on Facebook over users’ privacy offenses from the Cambridge Analytica scandal, in addition to the US Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) directing the social media platform to cover $100 million penalty for producing misleading disclosures concerning the chance of misuse of consumer information.
Aside from the record-breaking $5 billion penalty, Facebook has been requested to submit new sweeping limitations plus also a modified corporate structure which will hold the company responsible for the decisions it makes about its customers’ privacy.
There have been many episodes following the Cambridge Analytica incident where Facebook acknowledged string of solitude lapses, such as the most recent entry that it mishandled countless consumers’ passwords on Instagram and”accidentally” uploaded emails of almost 1.5 million of its fresh users.
