Facebook Lobbied to Kill Social Networking Privacy Act

Intro: “Facebook’s California lobbying report included an expense for dinner with the majority leader of the state Assembly, Charles Calderon, at a Sacramento restaurant in June,” according to MarketWatch. Calderon, however, voted to move the bill forward. In June, Facebook hired its first lobbyist, William Gonzalez, to represent the company’s interests at the state level.

My take: Yep, privacy regulation reinforcement is a key trend I highlight in DiCoDE – the present and lobbying is a key activity to influence decision makers
