Quartz: Facebook is a “surveillance operation“ in an “abusive relationship” with its users, say UK lawmakers

Quartz, on Thursday: Facebook is a “surveillance operation“ in an “abusive relationship” with its users, say UK lawmakers. “UK lawmakers visiting the US didn’t pull any punches at a Washington DC hearing on fake news today. ‘Isn’t Facebook a massive surveillance operation?’ asked conservative MP Rebecca Pow. Members of the UK House of Commons’s digital, culture, media and sport committee called US tech companies to George Washington University today, questioning representatives of Facebook, Alphabet, and Twitter, as well as academics and journalists on the general topic of fake news.”
