Facebook Reportedly Thinks There's No 'Expectation of Privacy' On Social Media

Facebook wants to dismiss a lawsuit stemming from the Cambridge Analytica scandal by arguing that it didn't violate users' privacy rights because there's no expectation of privacy when using social media. CNET reports: 'There is no invasion of privacy at all, because there is no privacy,' Facebook counsel Orin Snyder said during a pretrial hearing to dismiss a lawsuit stemming from the Cambridge Analytica scandal, according to Law 360.
