Leak of 4,000 Facebook documents heaps more trouble on internet giant – Naked Security

This week’s bold rebrand of Facebook to FACEBOOK can’t hide the growing sense that nobody is happy with the company right now.

October was particularly bad, climaxing with CEO Mark Zuckerberg being publicly beaten up by Democrat Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez during House Financial Services Committee hearings over the company’s allegedly lax attitude to policing political advertising.

All that after the company’s yet-to-launch global cryptocurrency Libra lost the symbolic backing of PayPal, followed days later by MasterCard, Visa and eBay.

And then, of course, there was the slow-motion scandal about developer access to customer data through things like the Groups API and the company’s general inability to get on top of the issue of dodgy malicious ads that hijack its platform.

Did we mention July’s record-breaking $5 billion fine by the US Federal Trade Commission (FTC) over its privacy fumbling?
