A year ago, you probably thought Mark Zuckerberg was running for president

Senate Committee To Question Facebook CEO About Privacy Scandal

The announcement comes with Facebook chief Mark Zuckerberg set to begin testimony at congressional hearings Tuesday and Wednesday on abuse of private data collected by the social network.

Zuckerberg opened his remarks before the Senate Commerce and Judiciary committees by taking responsibility for failing to prevent Cambridge Analytica, a data-mining firm affiliated with Donald Trump's presidential campaign, from gathering personal information from 87 million users to try to influence elections.

Zuckerberg: "Senator, yes. Of course".

The Facebook founder said that the platform didn't take broad enough view of its responsibility and this was a huge mistake.

"I have to tell you, I am concerned about how much Facebook values trust and transparency", Sen. This is because Facebook has been actively fighting an IL privacy law that requires companies get explicit consent from users before they collect biometric data. "The senators in the room made it fairly clear that if they are not willing to work with them they are willing to take action whether they want it or not", she said.

"I don't want anyone at our company to make any decisions based on the political ideology of the content", he added.Asked if he was committed to ensuring that activist groups like Black Lives Matter aren't "unfairly" targeted or monitored. "Until we get it automated, there's a higher error rate than I'm happy with".

"I started Facebook, I run it and I'm responsible for what happens here - this includes the basic responsibility of protecting people's information, which we failed to do with Cambridge Analytica".

"As long as there are people sitting in Russian Federation whose job it is to try and interfere with elections around the world, this is going to be an ongoing conflict", he added.

"This is an arms race".

After we identified Russian interference in the 2016 United States elections, we successfully deployed new AI tools leading up to the 2017 French, German, and Alabama Senate special elections that removed tens of thousands of fake accounts. "I'm not actually sure what that is referring to".

Facebook users who didn't get the notice can check the platform's help page to confirm that they weren't affected. He assured senators the company would handle the situation differently today.

"There will always be a version of Facebook that is free", Zuckerberg told the hearing.

Zuckerberg vowed to "hire thousands of more people" to get the new system in place ahead of USA midterm elections in November, starting the process in the United States and taking it global in the coming months. Dick Durbin asked Zuckerberg, "Would you be comfortable sharing with us the name of the hotel you stayed in last night?" In the event of duplicate reports, we award a bounty to the first person to submit an issue.
