The Massachusetts senator is calling for legislation that would designate the companies as “platform utilities” and the appointment of regulators who would unwind technology mergers that undermine competition and harm innovation and small businesses.
In “ A Privacy-Focused Vision for Social Networking ,” a 3,200-word essay that Zuckerberg posted to Facebook on March 6, he says he wants to “build a simpler platform that’s focused on privacy first.” In apparent surprise, he writes: “People increasingly also want to connect privately in the digital equivalent of the living room.” Sign up for The Download Your daily dose of what's up in emerging technology Zuckerberg’s essay is a power grab disguised as an act of contrition.
The grand bargain of the digital age, in which consumers have traded their data for free services, is coming apart. Be smart: Giving consumers more control of their data also means they'd have to take more responsibility for it and actively manage it, like managing financial accounts.
“To restore the balance of power in our democracy, to promote competition, and to ensure that the next generation of technology innovation is as vibrant as the last, it’s time to break up our biggest tech companies.” The proposal notes that major companies have tightened their grip on the digital market through mergers, but regulators have largely let those deals pass.
"People, not regulators, should decide what they see in their news feeds," Facebook wrote in an unpublished submission to the ACCC's digital platforms review.

Livestream begins Friday, March 1 at 7 p.m. ET Join Intercept senior correspondent Naomi Klein and Harvard Business School professor Shoshana Zuboff, author of “The Age of Surveillance Capitalism: The Fight for a Human Future at the New Frontier of Power,” for an engaging discussion about the unprecedented form of power called “surveillance capitalism” and the quest by corporations to predict and control our behavior.
EFF has for years urged technology companies and legislators to do a better job at protecting the privacy of every person. Californians last year took an important step in the right direction, by enacting the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA).
Zuboff, who published her first book in 1989 on the future of technology and data in the workplace, warns in Surveillance Capitalism of a “seventh extinction” that threatens to eradicate “what has been held most precious in human nature.” Given the fragility of the global political and economic order, surveillance capitalism amounts to a “coup from above,” Zuboff argues, an assault on democracy by way of subverting the very idea of what it means to be an individual.

"The sensitive vocoder and powerful neural networks represented the sounds the patients had originally listened to with surprising accuracy." Dr. Mesgarani and his team plan to test more complicated words and sentences next, and they want to run the same tests on brain signals emitted when a person speaks or imagines speaking.
We saw the experimental development of this new “means of behavioural modification” in Facebook’s contagion experiments and the Google-incubated augmented reality game Pokémon Go. Democracy has slept, while surveillance capitalists amassed unprecedented concentrations of knowledge and power It is no longer enough to automate information flows about us; the goal now is to automate us.
They just aren’t getting violent yet that we know of — internally in the US, outside is another story.” “Everybody’s afraid because all this data that’s about them, the central agencies — the intelligence agencies — they have it.” As Binney had no documents to give to the media, blowing the whistle had no consequence for NSA.
Likewise, when EFF reviews the many federal data privacy bills that have circulated since the Cambridge Analytica scandal first broke earlier this year, one of our primary goals is to ensure that these bills include a private right of action.
