Facebook: No Heads Will Roll

Facebook: No Heads Will Rollby

Yes – the Facebook scandal train appears to be ongoing this week, as it has emerged that the platform has not only been able to scan private Facebook Messenger conversations, but that there could be up to 87 million accounts impacted in the data release scandal, according to The Guardian, rather than the 50 million previously indicated. Mark Zuckerberg, Facebook’s CEO, has also come forward to suggest that ‘most’ of the social network’s users had experienced ‘data scraping’ – separate to Cambridge Analytica – though it must be stated that signing up and using certain services on Facebook requires you to agree to certain uses of your personal information.

Despite this, Facebook’s stock price is taking a while to heal from the big dip it experienced in recent days – though it does certainly seem to have some way to go in terms of regaining the trust of many users and the media. It’s been reported that Zuckerberg will appear before US politicians in the coming days, though he has refused to appear before a British Parliamentary committee – a move which has been met with some consternation. In any case, Zuckerberg has remained fairly public in the fallout of the Cambridge Analytica scandal – after having remained somewhat subdued during the early days of the story emerging.

Zuckerberg has advised that there won’t be any heads rolling in the wake of Facebook’s very public scandal – and that he effectively takes full responsibility for what has occurred. “I still think that I’m going to do the best job to help run it going forward,” Zuckerberg stated. “I’m not looking to throw anyone else under the bus for mistakes that we’ve made here.” Zuckerberg’s running of the company, as well as his reaction to the fallout of the data capture being leaked, have come under massive scrutiny – with some media outlets also running an old story on how the CEO had referred to initial joiners of Facebook as ‘dumb f**ks’ for sharing their data in a private message from considerable years ago. It seems, therefore, that all the muck that’s fit to rake – is still very much being raked.

Quite what happens with Facebook from here is anyone’s guess, though experts are confident the stock price will recover – though as the social network has been attempting to encourage their users to share more of their lives and less in the way of viral news and memes in recent years, it’s not clear where their strategy will be heading in the immediate future.
