Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg Testifying Before House Committee

Facebook alerts

"It was my mistake, and I'm sorry". "It was a big mistake".

"On today of all days, I just found out that there are two fake Facebook accounts impersonating me, and guess what?"

Both companies also say they moved to have the data deleted once they learned of the problem in 2015. "Will Facebook offer to all its users a blanket opt-in for sharing their data with third-party app developers?" she asked. He also said at least one Facebook employee had been interviewed by special counsel Robert Mueller's office as part of its investigation of Russian interference in the 2016 US presidential election. Joe Barton, a Republican representing Texas's 6th congressional district and vice-chairman of the House Energy and Commerce Committee, said to Zuckerberg; "I'm going to read you a question that I was asked, I got this through Facebook and I've got dozens like this". The UK-based firm, however, has denied the allegation saying that the company licensed data for no more than 30 million people from GSR.

"There are people in Russia whose job it is to try to exploit our systems and other internet systems and other systems as well". Some lawmakers grew frustrated at their limit of four minutes each to press Zuckerberg on specifics, and chastised the billionaire at times for offering up rehearsed platitudes about valuing user privacy.

Facebook banned the app in 2015, but the data collected was not destroyed, in violation of Facebook's personal data policy.

Overall, the testimony didn't really change our view and valuation on the company.

"Mr. Zuckerberg, do you feel its your responsibility to assess users, whether they are good and positive connections or ones that those 15 to 20,000 people deem unacceptable or deplorable?"

Zuckerberg has spent the last two days in Washington DC where he has been giving evidence to Congress.

Democrats like Nelson have argued that federal laws might be necessary to ensure user privacy.

The iconic moment from Mark Zuckerberg's Senate hearing yesterday came before he faced toothless questions from profoundly uninformed senators.

Several Democratic senators called for regulation to protect users' privacy, and to require more disclosure for online political campaign ads.

It couldn't be easier to watch Mark Zuckerberg's congress live stream.
