Never Facebook, the largest social network in the world, had spent such a sum of money in lobbying. According to public documents, shelled by the agency Bloomberg, and the information site Politico, the company has spent $ 3.67 million (3.14 million euros) in lobbying in the United States in the second quarter of 2018. That is 1 million more than last year over the same period.
It must be said that this quarter was one of the most difficult in the history of Facebook, caught up in the scandal Cambridge Analytica, a company that specialized in political influence that has indirectly sucked the data of 87 million users of the social network. Mark Zuckerberg, the boss of Facebook, had even ended up having to explain to the u.s. Congress, during two hearings historical.
