It was my mistake, Zuckerberg admits in his testimony

These Tweets About Mark Zuckerberg Testifying In Congress Are 'Like'-worthy

A few interesting points: in a response to a question by Vermont senator Patrick Leahy, Zuckerberg said Facebook is cooperating with special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 USA presidential election.

Seemingly unimpressed, Republican Sen.

"Um... no", Zuckerberg said after pausing, then smiled as the room laughed.

The data scandal wiped away tens of billions of dollars from Facebook's market value, prompted political scrutiny on both sides of the Atlantic and even raised the once unthinkable question of whether Zuckerberg should step down as CEO.

Zuckerberg had gone through rigorous training sessions with lawyers, consultants and advisers in the days before the hearing. He'll face House questioners Wednesday.

"2018 is is an incredibly important year for elections".

Facebook said it learned of the data violation in 2015 and asked Cambridge Analytica to delete the data at the time. Still, it is notable that Zuckerberg confirmed the company's cooperation with Mueller's team.

He was also unable to say what connection Facebook had found, if any, between the Russian-linked company that purchased ads in the 2016 election and Cambridge Analytica, the data mining firm that improperly accessed up to 87 million Facebook users' private information. Zuckerberg, once press shy, also launched an apology tour as part of a rare media blitz. Politicians often chew the scenery with long-winded, self-serving wind-ups, but Zuckerberg was peppered with some fairly pointed questions that got to the heart of the issue.

Zuckerberg is no stranger to being made fun of in meme form, and this hearing was no different.

Border crossings had fallen dramatically just after Trump took office previous year , in what some called the "Trump effect". Border Patrol , which after a drop-off previous year has returned to apprehending about as many people as it typically does.

No need. "That was pretty good", he said of the exchange with Cruz. The platform is built to collect and distribute user information useful to advertisers as efficiently as possible-a model which expressly concerns business over the safety and experience of Facebook users. "We expected them to do a number of more traditional cyber attacks, which we did identify and notify the campaigns that they were trying to hack into them", he said. Last year, it was learned that Russian actors relied on the platform to foster political discord in the heat of the 2016 campaign, using Facebook advertisements and pages to disseminate misinformation.

Much of the effort was aimed at denigrating Democrat Hillary Clinton and thereby helping Republican Trump, or simply encouraging divisiveness and undercutting faith in the U.S. system.

The Facebook CEO formally apologized to Congress on Tuesday for mistakes that led to the Cambridge Analytica scandal and stressed that his company is rethinking its responsibility to users and society.

Does Facebook consider itself to be a neutral public forum? He assured senators the company would handle the situation differently today. He did. Was Facebook responsible for protecting user content?

"Facebook does not use your phone's microphone to inform ads or to change what you see in News Feed".

Zuckerberg also told the committees that his company has been alerting some of its users that their data was gathered by Cambridge Analytica.

And just in case Zuckerberg wasn't entirely clear on Kennedy's point, the Senator left him with some colorful advice. "In retrospect it was clearly a mistake to believe them", he said.

"My position is not that there should be no regulation".

Zuckerberg met Monday with Florida Sen. Dan Sullivan, R-Alaska, that "I'm not the type of person who thinks that all regulation is bad".
