SyrupCast Podcast Ep. 165: Pumping the brakes on Facebook

Xperia XZ2

This week on the SyrupCast, telecom editor Rose Behar is joined by podcast producer Robyn Edgar and telecom reporter Sameer Chhabra, to discuss Facebook’s recent privacy issues, as well as the new Sony Xperia XZ2 Compact.

Over the course of the past few weeks major privacy issues surrounding Facebook have surfaced. This week Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg held a call with journalists to discuss the Cambridge Analytica breach. On the call, Zuckerberg said that the original number of 50 million people affected is actually more in the ballpark of 87 million, 600,000 of those being Canadians.

The team talks about what this means and what’s next for Facebook.

Back in the mobile tech space, the team gets into the pros and cons of the Xperia Xz2 Compact, the brand new flagship smartphone from SonyTune in to hear the SyrupCast team’s thoughts on all things telecom.
