It focuses on the testimony under oath Facebook general counsel Colin Stretch delivered on October 31st in front to the U.S. Senate Judiciary Committee. Facebook is known for its liberalism.
As Law & Crime reports, U.S. senator John Kennedy (R-LA) asked Stretch if Facebook had the ability to retrieve a total information profile about its two billion users. Stretch denied that.
He got cute and said that was against the rules. Kennedy pushed back. He noted he was asking about the ability, not the rules.
According to Law & Crime, it is well known that such user information is retrieved on a regular basis.
That comprehensive personal data is allegedly available to advertisers to micro-target promotional material.
The Wall Street Journal is among the other members of the media now putting the spotlight on this possible perjury.
If convicted, Stretch could face five years in prison.
Also, Facebook's brand would take another hit. Could advertisers be scared off? A competitor with more integrity could suck off a lot of market share from Facebook.
