Below is a rush transcript (may contain errors):

After the Cambridge Analytica scandal, it seems more Americans are ready to “unfriend” Facebook.

A new poll from Reuters, shows that only 41 percent of consumers trust Facebook to obey U.S. privacy laws. Other major online brands including Amazon, Google, and Microsoft, each have over 60 percent trust among the public.

The poll also showed that a majority, 63 percent wants “less targeted advertising” on websites and 46 percent wants more government regulation of companies that deal with private user data.

I’m glad to see people are finally realizing that social media and other online brands have too much power over their private user data because it’s an issue that should concern all of us.

If the trust in Facebook continues to decline, and it may very well continue as more people learn about how Facebook uses their data, many Americans may decide to “unfriend” Facebook, and if that happens, Mark Zuckerberg is gonna lose a lot of Bitcoins.
