Facebook enabled massive identify theft to occur for much of the past 14 years. Empirically, Facebook employees are incompetent for the job.
This is a company that is, in my view, likely grossly out of compliance with the FTC consent decree,” said Vladeck, now a Georgetown University Law professor. “I don’t think that after these revelations they have any defense at all.” He called the numbers “just staggering.”
Per the consent decree, at $40,000 per person times 2 billion users, the fine comes to 8 x 10^13 dollars or I think that works out to 80 trillion $s. No kidding 🙂
