Iowa Attorney General, Tom Miller, announced Friday his office is joining eight other attorneys general in an investigation of social media giant, Facebook. “Facebook’s dominance over communications and information is concerning, and that’s why we are joining this bipartisan coalition to examine whether the company has violated antitrust laws,” says Miller. “The investigation is in its early stages and we have drawn no conclusions.” The stated goal of the inquiry is to determine if Facebook’s action have endangered user data, reduced the quality of consumers’ choice or stifled competition. Attorneys General from Colorado, Florida, Nebraska, New York, North Carolina, Ohio, Tennessee and the District of Columbia are leading the investigation. It primarily focuses on their domination of the communications industry and alleged anti-competitive conduct as a result.
