Facebook took three days to disclose this to the public because that was the maximum amount of time they could wait under the GDPR. They notified the FBI the day before.

But, y'know, they also prevented people from posting the Guardian's article about the breach on Facebook. Their super smart AI that's going to solve and automate global content moderation marked the hot news as spam because a lot of people posted it. As if it wasn't manually added to the spam filter.

Yeah, that too. BTW also Zuckerberg's and Sandberg's accounts were breached. I noticed a tweet from the head of the FTC asking for answers.

I hope they get regulated, fines are meaningless

A fine means "legal for rich people," and they're particularly ineffective against corporations. :/ Putting teeth back into our regulations is the only way forward, I agree.
