Marketplace Tech

with Molly Wood

Facebook seems to be doing everything wrong, but it's working for them...

February 01, 2019

A busy week in Facebook news: One report said it was paying people to use a research app that sucked up basically all the activities on their phone. That got Facebook in huge trouble with Apple. Meanwhile, two senators were demanding answers about kids buying things on Facebook without their parents' knowledge. Then, on Wednesday, the company reported its earnings and... they were fantastic. The number of users everywhere, including in the U.S., was up, along with increased ad revenue. A tech reporter for The New York Times, Mike Isaac covers all of these stories. Molly Wood asks him if it’s possible people just actually don't care about their privacy after all. Today's show is sponsored by Triple Byte_JD and Evident.
