Facebook Can't Police Itself; Congress Must Enact Comprehensive Safeguards & Disclosure

April 10, 2018; Press Release, Status Update

Now is the time for Congress to pass comprehensive privacy legislation that gives consumers opt-in choice, not just for Facebook, but across-the-board, for those who hold our personal data.
