Facebook CEO, Mark Zuckerberg, has finally spoken up about the Cambridge Analytica debacle, telling CNN’s Laurie Segall “I’m really sorry that this happened.”
However, Evgeny Chereshnev thinks it’s too little, too late. Evgeny Chereshnev, CEO at Biolink.Tech commented below.
Evgeny Chereshnev, CEO at Biolink.Tech:
“The reputational damage done by Facebook to its customers and partners is irreversible. The attempt to shift the spotlight by literally pointing to another entity to blame is a decent PR attempt, but it’s a low blow and wrong from a moral and commercial perspective.
“It’s too little too late, because now everyone understands that Facebook is the problem. It’s not about a third party being able to acquire people’s data. It’s obvious that this is happening, and by many third parties that we’re not even aware of yet! But meddling with elections, referendums and messing with people’s minds is unacceptable. The real problem is the amount of power Facebook has on people and the amount of damage Facebook can have on free governments.”
