News on Facebook…the following from the NY Times.
“Facebook has data-sharing partnerships with at least four Chinese electronics companies, including a manufacturing giant that has a close relationship with China’s government, the social media company said on Tuesday.
The agreements, which date to at least 2010, gave private access to some user data to Huawei, a telecommunications equipment company that has been flagged by American intelligence officials as a national security threat, as well as to Lenovo, Oppo and TCL.
The four partnerships remain in effect, but Facebook officials said in an interview that the company would wind down the Huawei deal by the end of the week.”
FUNNY…I don’t remember Mr. Zuckerberg disclosing this on his visit to Capital Hill. Maybe it is just me but the question could be…was those 2 days on the hill just a bunch of bull crap? Nevertheless, the powers that be who probably want jobs with the company when they are out of power…say nothing!
