New York Attorney General Leticia James is leading a group of top prosecutors that's looking into Facebook's market power. In a statement, James says even the world's largest social media platform must follow the law. She adds they'll be looking into whether the company endangered consumer data, reduced the quality of consumer's choices, or increased the price of advertising. AGs from seven additional states and the District of Columbia have signed on to the investigation. Facebook has not responded to a request for comment.
