Facebook Takes the Punches While Rest of Silicon Valley Ducks

As Facebook has taken it on the chin over the way it has handled the personal information of its users, the leaders of other tech companies have demonstrated that even in publicity-hungry Silicon Valley, it is entirely possible for billionaire executives and their sprawling empires to keep a low profile.

 Senate Judiciary Committee Chairma Charles Grassley (R-IA) sent letters to Sundar Pichai, Google’s chief executive, and Jack Dorsey, Twitter’s chief executive, 14 questions. In his letter to Google, Chairman Grassley wanted to “understand how Google manages and monitors user privacy for the significant amounts of data which it collects.” The companies have until April 25 to respond.
