World’s Greatest Deliberative Body Doesn’t Understand Facebook

The Internet is a series of tubes

Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg faced 44 U.S. Senators at Tuesday's joint committee hearing about Facebook's handling of user data amid a wider discussion about privacy on the Internet.

Questions from the inquirers ranged from asking if Zuckerberg could identify hate groups under the control of Russians to demanding access to user options that already exist to wondering how Facebook makes money.

It was a terrific hearing.
