Mark Zuckerberg’s marathon testimony before the United States Congress this week has raised questions over the future of the social media platform and whether the company will be subjected to regulation. For one woman, however, the testimony raised no questions at all.
Ailish Regardo (32) has reportedly made up her mind on the fate of Facebook. “It’s all over,” she explained in a statement sent to The Obiter over Messenger. “I just cannot see anyone using Facebook anymore in light of what we now know.”
In the days preceding our several direct messages and Messenger audio calls with Ms Regardo, the engaged citizen of the web posted no less than three articles per day about the unfolding Facebook crisis. “Yep. Hate to break it to you, Mark – you’re done,” Ms Regardo captioned her latest post in which she shared a Washington Post article that outlined the testimony’s recent developments.
While some believe Mark Zuckerberg can recover from the data-breach scandal, Ms Regardo is not so optimistic. “My status about Zuckerberg breaking the public’s trust got 14 likes, 3 loves and 2 angrys. The lack of wows is really indicative that people are taking this breach seriously.”
Ms Regardo has already begun the process of disaffiliating from the platform. “I have taken the immediate measure of deleting the Facebook app from my phone,” she said in her reply to a comment on the aforementioned post.
At press time, Ms Regardo was seen logging into Facebook in Safari.
