Zuckerberg Testifies in Front of Congress

Facebook CEO Zuckerberg aims to pacify US lawmakers

That includes Cruz (R-Texas), who reeled off a number of conservative groups whose Facebook pages had been shut down.

ANNA ESHOO: Was your data included in the data sold to the malicious third parties - your personal data? Graham pointed out that if he wasn't happy with a specific model of a car, he had many other car options, but where does one go if they aren't happy with FB?

Zuckerberg demurred that he didn't know what a shadow profile is, and to be fair, it's not a term Facebook uses, at least publicly. Web developers can control what data is collected and when it is transmitted.

Zuckerberg began his hearing with the senators by indicating he was not excited to be there. Would an ad-free, paid version of Facebook work, anyway?

CEO and founder Mark Zuckerberg was in the hot seat once again on Capitol Hill Wednesday admitting that even his data was compromised.

That data comes from a range of sources, said Nate Cardozo, senior staff attorney at the Electronic Frontier Foundation.

As with yesterday, Facebook sought to promote steps it has already taken to address the fallout of the Cambridge Analytica data privacy scandal. Useful data gets sent to Facebook whether you click on one of its buttons or not. Hardaway said, according to Fox News. On Tuesday, when he took his seat on the committee room floor, the suit was navy, and the tie was Facebook blue.

"I am optimistic that, over a 5-10 year period, we will have AI (Artificial Intelligence) tools that can get to some of the nuances - the linguistic nuances of different types of content... So, even if Facebook doesn't earn money from selling data, doesn't Facebook earn money from advertising based on that data?" "If I'm upset with Facebook, what's the equivalent product that I can sign up for?"

Grabbing those photos from Harvard's "facebooks" - the school's database of students' pictures and basic information - on a protected computer network, landed Zuckerberg on probation by the university's disciplinary board after outrage from students prompted the site's shuttering. We need to know when someone is trying to repeatedly access our services.

And, that was the crux of the whole hearing; as nervous as Zuckerberg was, no one held him accountable for his gross negligence on users' privacy. "Clearly there are issues ... that have to be dealt with".

"The GDPR requires us to do a few more things and we are going to extend that to the world", he said.

That raised questions of consent, said Laura Gowans, chief operating officer of privacy oriented tech company SpiderOak. This has made it possible for Zuckerberg to avoid tough questions, because the interviewers lack the technical knowledge to effectively challenge the Facebook CEO.

"Yes or no: Does Facebook use audio obtained from mobile devices to enrich personal information about its users?", asked Sen.
