    “dumb fucks.”
    Zuckerberg called users “dumb fucks.” While his language may have changed since he became a rich man and needs the “dumb fucks” as his product, his attitude toward people who use his company has not.

    Might we change the title to something like “Facebook ‘outraged’ by alleged misuse of data”? The investigation isn’t the cause of the outrage, based on the quote in the article: “The entire company is outraged we were deceived”.

      Changed, thanks. It’s going to move fast I suspect. I think it is important to take care with Facebook’s comment: gambling, here? I am shocked.

      Aside from owning Whatsapp, Instagram and others, Facebook also has tracking code on many other websites.

      All those Facebook icons on other websites are often able to track your browsing, and if you have a Facebook account, they will know exactly who you are and what you’ve been looking at online.

      Of course, Google does much the same thing.
