Would you consider closing your Facebook after privacy breach?

Facebook may be under scrutiny from privacy regulators, and its CEO in the hot seat in front of Congress, but the social network doesn't expect any of this outrage to affect its bottom line.

However, the Guardian said that whistleblower Christopher Wylie had looked at some direct messages on Kogan's database, and concluded it was "unclear" whether they had been using by Cambridge Analytica and its associates. "What is clear, however, is that the size Facebook has reached makes this a global issue, not just a U.S. issue". Zuckerberg was seemingly prepared for questions on a range of issues from Cambridge Analytica to Facebook's default-privacy settings.

But he stiffly defended Facebook's business model that uses the data and postings of the 2.2 billion users of its free platform in order to attract the advertising revenue the US$480 billion (S$629 billion) company depends on.
