Speaking at the second day of a United States congress hearing into the data leak, Zuckerberg conceded that he was one of the reported 84 million people who had their data compromised, however he has rebutted suggestions that users don't have enough control over their data on Facebook.

Zuckerberg faced questions about the future of his company. Zuckerberg has said that his company was in a constant battle with Russian operators seeking to exploit the platform. That means that people who don't use the social network are "not the highest value profile for Facebook", Cardozo said. Due to the heavily influential hand FB has on its users and the world, Congress wanted answers from Zuckerberg about what he's doing to maintain users' privacy. "It actually has nothing to do with Facebook", Zuckerberg said, again rejecting persistent suggestions that Facemash was a precursor or somehow related to his $450 billion company.

"He said he's in favour of some kind of regulation, but he's not behind some kind of sweeping regulation of Facebook that some critics of the company would like to see", McCabe said.

The Facebook CEO said he is 'committed to getting this right, ' after acknowledging that it was a mistake not to notify the millions of affected users back in 2015 that their data had been compromised when the firm first learned of Cambridge Analytica's activity.

Pepper, named one of the top 50 most influential women in private wealth by Private Asset Management, dubbed the social networking pioneer a "revenue juggernaut". Michigan Democrat Debbie Dingell also requested that data be provided about Facebook like buttons, share buttons, and code on sites other than Facebook that could potentially be used to collect data on non-users. Yet several Republican lawmakers complained to Zuckerberg about what they called a bias on Facebook. These people who are tracked by Facebook in this way have never entered into agreement with Facebook for this, they never consented to be tracked by Facebook. "Even if someone isn't logged in we track how many pages they're accessing as a security measure", Zuckerberg said.

"Those are the ones we're aware of", Cardozo said.

He continued: "I want to be careful here because our work with the special counsel is confidential and I want to make sure that in an open session I'm not revealing something that is confidential".
