Mark Zuckerberg forgot to apologize because it’s not important
After the scandalous Cambridge Analytica controversy, Facebook is facing its worst nightmare where people are pointing its existence including WhatsApp co-founder Brian Acton and encouraging users to delete the account from the social media giant for an alleged data leak that had been used for political influence. A controversy that destroys the image of both the company and its founder that forced him to come in front of media for an apology for enabling the data breach which helped the British agency and the company is open to “the right” government regulation. By suspending the British firm’s account from the database- Facebook took the strongest action according to the company dictionary. They forgot to say sorry for the alleged leakage because it’s a least important factor for them; after all, this is how they do their business, so no need to say sorry and privacy becomes a bunch of jokes and irony is we will share it on Facebook. The privacy mode of the social network is just farce, whereas in reality, there is nothing like private and anytime they can read and sell the user data to anyone by agreeing with their dubious policies and the moment we join, we lose our private life. The disturbing fact is users don’t pay much attention the agreement and wonder how they get all the information that ultimately gives benefits to the company to grow their business.
Though, the recent controversy forced him to come forward but seems that he has no regret for stealing the user data, and the company doesn’t give any guarantee because he is still trying to understand what exactly happened by putting all the blame on Cambridge Analytica, whereas a normal user can say what is happening. Controversy is not new for him, and he knows how to deal with from the beginning of the company because he made it by breaking all the promises with his former colleague Dibya Narendra and Winklevoss twins and we should not expect anything from him. We all know that how these social media sites are playing a major role in our life but at the same time we should remember that the moment we come here, our privacy has gone and it would be our foolishness to complain about it and expecting honesty from them is like doing peace agreement with a terrorist organization and the latest no sorry statement of Zuckerberg shows the non-accountability of the silicon valley giant, but we should not blame him alone as everyone has the same role when it comes to deal with data and privacy. No matter how many times they come forward and express regret, in the end, they have to run their business, and without selling the users data, it is impossible to continue. It would be a book; if we write the controversies related to Facebook and the recent activities just adds another chapter. While other companies make a little effort to keep the data private, Facebook seems to be ignorant, and that’s why it becomes the favorite child of controversy.
