Long lines protest before Facebook CEO Zuckerberg testifiesMore

In a hearing that was scheduled to last two hours yesterday, Mark Zuckerberg ended up answering questions from the US Senate committee members for over five hours about Facebook's responsibility to safeguard user privacy and the Cambridge Analytica data breach that has dominated headlines for weeks now.

Seemingly unimpressed, Republican Sen. "We're proud of the discourse and the different ideas that people can share on the service, and that is something that, as long as I'm running the company, I'm going to be committed to making sure is the case", he asserted. In it, the Facebook founder addresses the Cambridge Analytica scandal and Russian election interference, saying that the company has taken steps to prevent Facebook from being being used for "harm".

A list of applications that Facebook has previously banned because data was transferred in violation of Facebook's terms. It will look for misuses of personal information and then alert users if it finds anything suspicious.

Investors were impressed with his initial performance.

Many people have voiced concern that Facebook is listening to conversations in order better target advertising on the site. "For Google's parent company, Alphabet, the total was nearly $8 million".

Whether Facebook tracks a user's internet-browsing activity after they have logged off Facebook's platform - and if so, a detailed explanation of how. At the same time, all of this is ultimately voluntary.

Facebook faces a backlash from some consumer groups. He was too rehearsed, he did too good of a job. He began by asking Zuckerberg, "Are you familiar with Andrew Bosworth?"

For the most part, his careful but generally straightforward answers, steeped in the sometimes arcane details of Facebook's underlying functions, often deflected aggressive questioning.

So, whenever the questioning got tough, Zuckerberg made clear that he could not be trusted to give an answer. So the problem isn't an individual ruler; it's the system of rule.

Zuckerberg said Facebook had been led to believe Cambridge Analytica had deleted the user data it had harvested and that had been "clearly a mistake".

Zuckerberg's denial that he knew whether or not Palantir had scraped data from Facebook rang hollow. He assured senators the company would handle the situation differently today.

Colorado Representative Diana DeGette listed out several other infractions and lawsuits Facebook has faced, including its 2011 FTC settlement settlement to protect user privacy, and asked if Facebook has been punished financially for its past mistakes.

Zuckerberg is facing questions about Facebook's involvement in various data-privacy scandals and how it can address those issues.

Lawmakers pledged to hold separate hearings focusing on Cambridge Analytica in the near future.

The Tuesday hearing, which is set to take place at 11:15 a.m. PT, is streaming live below. I think it's time to really change the conduct.

"I'm happy to have my team follow up with you".

Zuckerberg: Senator, no, I would probably choose not to do that.
