Fact Check: What Mark Zuckerberg Is Saying About Facebook, Data and Elections

Google mandates TLS encrypted connections for Android apps

Indeed, several senators questioning Zuckerberg seemed to take his side and expressed more anger at Cambridge Analytica than Facebook, which had such lax data sharing policies that it's developer platform essentially operated on an honor system. The Facebook founder was clad in a sharply pressed suit and tasteful light blue tie. Multiple investigations are probing the interference. Dick Durbin, D-Illinois, asking whether Zuckerberg would reveal the Washington hotel he was staying in, and Sen. Facebook has said it intends to adopt these policies elsewhere, including in the United States, but has been cagey about how it would actually do so.

Cruz then asked if Zuckerberg knew of any Facebook staffers "who have supported a Republican candidate for office".

Once you're using your Amazon Echo like a pro, you may occasionally want to clear all the personal information it records. A notification that appeared on Facebook for some users Tuesday told them that "one of your friends" used Facebook to log into a now-banned personality quiz app called "This Is Your Digital Life".

"We have different forms of opt-out", Sandberg said.

Zuckerberg said Facebook is going through "a broader philosophical shift in how we approach our responsibility as a company".

The allegations tying Facebook to the illegal trafficking of wildlife are surfacing while the company is already scrambling to recover from a privacy scandal that has wiped out $79 billion in shareholder wealth during the past three weeks. Senators, particularly Carl Levin of Michigan, kept comparing what Goldman did to gambling in Las Vegas and fixated on the idea that Goldman was betting against its own clients.

Twitter widely noted the apparent age or knowledge gap between Zuckerberg and the senators.

Not all of the questions were on topic.

In a five hour hearing Tuesday, Zuckerberg fielded questions on why Facebook hadn't done more to protect its consumers' data, accusations it was a "virtual monopoly" and threats to more heavily regulate the huge social network. Here's a look at his remarks.

Zuckerberg was testifying Wednesday in the House. That was a bit of an unnecessary clarification, though, given that the question was about surreptitious recording, not something users were explicitly recording media to share. "Guess what? There's some really passionately held views about abortion on this panel today, can you imagine a world where you might decide that pro-lifers are prohibited from speaking about their abortion views on your platform?" said Sasse.

Absolutely, Zuckerberg responded, saying later in an exchange with Sen. "There will always be a version of Facebook that is free".

Another advisable option is Privacy Badger by the non-profit Electronic Frontier Foundation. If a February deep dive by WIRED is true, Zuck and Co. are soul-searching. For example, he explained that Facebook can't see your WhatsApp messages and that it doesn't sell users' data. "Poke! It was flirting for cowards!" Just say, "Senator, that's a great question!" Platforms are generally not held legally responsible for the content posted on those platforms - so liability issues ranging from copyright violation to slander aren't serious concerns for platforms.
