Thursday on “Closer Look with Rose Scott”:

  • 8:38: Facebook is still reeling from the Cambridge Analytica scandal, after news broke that millions of Facebook users’ data had been improperly shared with a data analytics firm that worked with the Trump campaign. Last week, Facebook Chairman and CEO Mark Zuckerberg testified before a joint session of the Senate commerce and judiciary committees on how Facebook has handled user data. How is this impacting the social media landscape and its users? What happens to Facebook now that there may be added regulations – and how would that work? We’ll speak with David Thomas, CEO and co-founder at Evident ID, an Atlanta-based cybersecurity company, as well as Yalanda Lattimore, founder of Dryerbuzz.com and regular social media contributor.
  • 35:11: Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta is expanding, with plans for a new North Druid Hills Campus and improvements across its healthcare system. Rose visited Egleston Hospital to check in with COO Dr. Patrick Frias about what the new additions will bring to their young patients, and how the nonprofit is planning for the future of pediatric care.
