It’s 11 am in Washington DC and Mark Zuckerberg is most likely in some five-star hotel shitting himself right about now.

In a few hours he’ll going to go before the the US Congress to answer questions about things like how in the hell Facebook let Cambridge Analytica, the “political research” company hired by both the Brexit camp and Trump, steal personal data on an estimated 87 million people. At least.

In fact, Facebook said that ”Given the scale and sophistication of the activity we’ve seen, we believe most people on Facebook could have had their public profile scraped.”

Well, if you’re like most people, you’re probably still thinking “Whatever, who cares.”

And if you’re like most people, while Zuckerberg goes from shitting himself in his hotel to sweating in front of Congress, you’ll flick through your Facebook feed, liking, sharing and tagging all the way. Hell, I’m going to share this blog on my own Facebook page and hope it gets shared, liked and commented on.
