Facebook may be under scrutiny from privacy regulators, and its CEO in the hot seat in front of Congress, but the social network doesn't expect any of this outrage to affect its bottom line. Even Zuckerberg said regulation of his industry is "inevitable".

A spokesman for Facebook told the New York Post that it was "the committee's standard practice" for comfort, and had not been brought along by either Facebook staff or Mr Zuckerberg himself to enhance his height.

Zuckerberg: I'm not - I'm not familiar with that. Why doesn't the government start there, and implement similar rules in the U.S.? "You need to save your ship". "It was my mistake, and I'm sorry", Zuckerberg said in his written testimony released by the US Congress.

Fraser said Facebook's 2.2 billion users worldwide should have an expectation of privacy.

While Democratic congressional members seemed to focus mostly on who controls the data and how it's shared with other entities, Republicans in the House seemed particularly interested in discussing Facebook's so-called bias against conservative views.

It's important that Facebook now makes efforts to communicate more strongly with users about their rights and responsibilities on the platform, as well as the responsibilities that Facebook owes them. Facebook recently moved to label all political and issues ads. Congress is unlikely to get it done during this session.

Zuckerberg himself said regulation could hurt its smaller rivals.

With controversy surrounding Facebook's collection of users' information, it is possible to find out exactly how much they know.

It's no coincidence that Parakilas has been speaking out about the issue since the matter of user data on Facebook came to light.

Facebook has been making changes to the way it allows third-party apps to access data. If true, Facebook may be subject to significant fines. Even so, the US FTC made a decision to open an investigation.
