Attorney General Jim Hood Joins Bipartisan Antitrust Investigation Into Facebook
Mississippi Attorney General Jim Hood today released the following statement confirming his participation in the bipartisan antitrust investigation into Facebook:
“Over the past year, I have raised concerns of potential barriers to competition and decreases in the quality of service when consumer data is concentrated in the hands of only a few. In this investigation, we will determine whether Facebook has restrained trade, thereby reducing the quality of consumers’ choices or increasing the price of advertising.”
General Hood joins the bipartisan investigation being led by New York Attorney General Letitia James that was announced last month.
