data that they gathered was used for political purposes in indonesia is facebook used as a political tool as well. well i think that we the indonesian government is taking the right first step here they need to hear from facebook some questions here facebook's answer so i think it's a good first step that we're actually getting some more some more transparency from facebook sure absolutely so. facebook has been used as a as a political tool in the u.s. which is why there's so much discussion about people's personal information is facebook used that way in indonesia as well to to to discuss you know whether it's fake news politics etc is is that use that way in indonesia. sure absolutely facebook is used for all sorts of purposes in indonesia discussing politics religion among them and these are really sensitive issues and so i actually
