Senators threaten to regulate Facebook unless it makes fixes

Senators Chris Coons and Bob Corker warned Friday that Congress would impose new regulations to rein in Facebook Inc. unless the social-media company addresses concerns about privacy and the spread of misinformation on its platform.

Speaking in a joint interview on the sidelines of a development forum in Wilmington, Delaware, the two senators said that Facebook probably wouldn’t like what Congress does, so it should come up with a solution first. [Bloomberg]

Perhaps that would bring about a lot of urgently needed changes to the platform. Whether it is for the better or worse, I don't know and I don't care, I can easily exist without it.

Privacy on Facebook is a real problem, but I am afraid the the campain is another threat for freedom of speech camouflaged as fighting so called fake news.
