Facebook Advises Brazilian Politicians on Social Media and 2 More Heavily Traded Stocks to Follow
Facebook Inc. (NASDAQ:FB): Current price $52.10
Brazil may be considering the imposition of strict new regulations on American Internet firms, but Facebook is being proactive by offering free advice to some of the country’s top politicians this week on how to win “friends” and maximize “likes” on their webpages. The tips on using social media coincided with politicians getting ready for a 2014 general election, and as Brazil’s Congress prepared to vote on legislation that could severely limit the manner in which some firms like Facebook, Twitter, and Google operate there. Following revelations of the United States government spying on Brazilian citizens and companies, including President Dilma Rousseff, the country is rushing through legislation that would oblige Internet firms to store data about their Brazilian users in the country.
