Zuckerberg Apologises To US Congress Over Facebook Data Breach

Share

The shares fell steeply last month after it came to light that millions of users' personal information was harvested from Facebook by Cambridge Analytica, a political consultancy that has counted US President Donald Trump's election campaign among its clients.

U.S. Sen. Ron Johnson (R-Wis.), chairman of the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee and a member of the Senate Commerce Committee, questioned Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg on third-party access to user data.

MZ:: "Senator, no, I would probably not choose to do that publicly here".

Zuckerberg was testifying Wednesday in the House.

"What we learned from that hearing is that the US Senate does not understand technology very well".

We must remember that we beat Real Madrid 3-0 on their own turf and only a insane person would've believed that going in. He is a player we have generally come to associate with the big occasion.

The communications team of the social media platform disclosed that the 78 Nigerian Facebook users downloaded and installed the "This Is Your Digital Life" quiz app and impacted about 271,469 other Nigerian users. And he reiterates previous statements that his company "didn't take a broad enough view of our responsibility, and that was a big mistake". "I started Facebook, I run it, and I'm responsible for what happens here", he said.

There have been numerous instances of random users/groups spreading hate messages on Facebook or indulging in vicious verbal attacks on users.

One of the most important points he made was that they trusted Cambridge Analytica Data when it told them that it had deleted the data. Can Facebook tell us which all Indian political parties have gained access to Facebook data shared with Cambridge Analytica?

On the subject of fake news, Mr Zuckerberg said "one of my greatest regrets in running the company" was its slowness at uncovering and acting against disinformation campaigns by Russian trolls during the USA election.

"We'll review all legitimate reports and respond as quickly as possible when we identify a credible threat to people's information", Greene said of the new program.

Looking further out, Bungie says "The community has been talking a lot about some of the things we're developing for Season Four". The second expansion for Destiny 2 , titled Warmind , will be launching on May 8 , Bungie announced today.

Zuckerberg is also expected to be asked about Russia's use of USA social media during the 2016 elections - a subject of several congressional investigations and special counsel Robert Mueller's probe into Russian interference.

"They're going to keep on getting better at this - and we need to invest to keep getting better at this too".

Although he faced little direct questioning about Russian election meddling, he did claim he was in an "arms race" with the nation. Facebook had long maintained that it did not learn about how Russian agents had used its platform to influence the presidential election until the summer of 2017.

Representative Eshoo, following up on her question about Zuckerberg's personal data, asked if he is "willing to change your business model in the interest of protecting individual privacy?"

Senator Bill Nelson: "Let me just cut to the chase". Nelson said afterward that Zuckerberg was "forthright and honest to the degree he could" be in the private, one-on-one meeting.
