Senate Democrats and Republicans Join Forces to Criticize Facebook's Zuckerberg


Zuckerberg also appeared willing to work with lawmakers on possible regulations, which we think may actually create a barrier to entry in the social network space and help Facebook maintain its market leadership.

What changes has Facebook made or does it plan to make regarding its use of user information and how that information is made available to third parties?

"Those questions have included whether Facebook can track users' browsing activity even after the user has logged off of Facebook, whether Facebook can track your activity across devices even when you are not logged into Facebook", she listed.

Looking uncomfortable before the cameras, the 33-year-old tech billionaire apologised for privacy failings and the platform being used to spread fake news, hate speech, and Russian interference in the 2016 elections.

NY Times took it upon themselves to provide readers with statement wise fact-checks on both sides, but here we talk about the biggest lies that came out of Zuckerberg's mouth and the half truth's that he tried to spin in order to get out of further escalation. "It was my mistake, and I'm sorry", Zuckerberg said in his written testimony released by the House commerce committee.

He said the Russian campaign of disinformation had been discovered "right around the time" of the United States presidential election, and said the company had developed "new AI tools" to identify fake accounts responsible. Cambridge Analytica disputes Facebook's estimate of the number of people affected. "I take full responsibility as the CEO of Facebook", he said.

Did Facebook allow the harvesting and sale of user data without their consent?

"I have to tell you, I am concerned about how much Facebook values trust and transparency", Sen.

When asked if any of Cambridge Analytica's data was being stored in Russia, Zuckerberg said he didn't have any indication that that was the case. "This includes the basic responsibility of protecting people's information, which we failed to do with Cambridge Analytica".

"Additionally, those potentially impacted by CA will also see the alert which will then take them to see what data might have been shared", the social media firm stated.

He added: "The nature of these attacks is there are people in Russian Federation whose job it is to try and exploit our systems".

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.
