Rural Economy Technology

With Facebook and Zuckerberg making a splash in the Senate and House, sucking up congressional staff time, there has been little discussion of rural broadband. While looking for some useful information, I came across this bit of insight. If you were to take a selfie and post it on Facebook or Instagram, you would be providing the photo and any text you used to explain the photograph, plus one more facial recognition sample.
