MS Attorney General Jim Hood joins bipartisan investigation into Facebook

Yesterday, Mississippi Attorney General Jim Hood announced that he is joining a bipartisan investigation into Facebook.

The investigation was announced just last month and is being led by New York Attorney General Letitia James into the social media giant.

Hood says the investigation should determine whether Facebook has restrained trade, in effect, reducing the quality of consumers’ choices, or increasing the price of advertising.

Hood says over the past year he has raised concerns of potential barrier to competition and decreases of quality of service when consumer data is concentrated in the hands of only a few.
