How could legislators hold Zuckerberg accountable if they don't understand what's going on? If you've ever used Facebook's Messenger app, you've likely given the company access to your phone contacts.

Zuckerberg squirmed when pressed about a 2011 agreement with the Federal Trade Commission that was created to force Facebook to tighten its privacy controls. Ahead of the hearings, the company announced that not only had Cambridge Analytica improperly gathered data from up to 87 million users-rather than the previously reported 50 million-but also "malicious actors" had exploited the site's search features to collect information from "most" of its two billion users.

Like many others, I checked to see if my data had been shared with "This Is Your Digital Life", the personality quiz app that allowed Cambridge Analytica to harvest the data. If true, Facebook may be subject to significant fines. He had no response when asked how a non-Facebook member could remove information without signing up for the service.

Analysts are also betting that there won't be much in the way of a user or advertiser fallout for Facebook either.

Rep. Steve Scalise, a Republican from Louisiana who is a former computer programmer, focused on how extensively Facebook tracks on users who aren't logged into the network or don't even have an account. It's data that made Zuckerberg a billionaire. This data was then used to build profiles of voters that have formed part of election influencing software. The American people are concerned about how Facebook protects and profits from its users' data, lawmakers said.

The 9% figure seems impossibly high as it would mean that of Facebook's estimated 214 million users in the United States, 19.2 million deleted their account over the past few weeks alone.
