Privacy and security are the major concerns regarding our electronic profile. Facebook owner Mark Zuckerberg says he claims full responsibilities for the actions that happened to Facebook and its users but what everyone wants to know is what he is doing to fix this problem.

He has gone in front of Congress and the House of Representatives in Washington D.C and was asked what his actions will be next. He has been under pressure and some people say the answers he gave were all the same and some questions he refused to answer. His indifference with Congress showed when asked “how does Facebook work?’’ Rather than give an account, he avoided it all together.

The data hack believed to be started during the presidential elections of 2016. Theories of how the Russians altered voting polls, hacking Facebook accounts, and getting their information in order to change people’s votes. The serious problem is when the Russians hacked into Facebook account, they have their identities and other information and can do whatever they want with it.  People are afraid and feel betrayed that a service they trusted was broken.

Facebook does not know how long it will take for them to recover. Teens who trust social media and depend on it, see this as a warning that nothing is truly safe on the internet. No one can trust Facebook or any kind of social media anymore because of what has happen to Facebook and if Facebook does not fix this then everything is going to go downhill. This is an important discussion to have, how much are we willing to give up for a social platform.
