    Guys:

    Great discussion. Thoroughly enjoyed it.

    That said, I think that FB is not even a swamp, but a cesspool of floating faeces which I avoid whenever possible; hence I’m not posting this comment on your FB site. Sadly, I do have to use it, initially for kids when they were adolescents and learning how to use social media (quasi) responsibly, and now for friends and colleagues abroad who use FB and Messenger as their primary means of communicating to me.

    I do think that there is an opportunity for lawmakers to provide some oversight. In answer to the question put to MZ last night, ‘Should FB be regulated?’, and to which he equivocated, ‘Perhaps we should be…’, I would respond, ‘Correction, you need to be’. FB has demonstrated a callous, indeed sometimes near criminal, disregard for the well-being of their user base and a repeated inability to self-regulate. We do not need restrictions on freedom of speech; and users should be apprised of the terms of FB usage (all your data are belong to us) but user should have more control over such data usage, and such control should be easy to up or down regulate; and finally there should be penalties when harm is done to a user or whole communities of users through no fault of their own under normal routine usage – not unlike what we do with private sector transportation companies.

    I suspect that lawmakers are poised to snatch irresponsibility from the maw of accountability.
