Zuckerberg's notes show he was prepared for senators to ask about resigning

12 Abril 2018, 09:55 | Bibiana Flor

Though several of the prepared defenses in the notes were used by Zuckerberg during Tuesday's Senate hearing, some never came up. By the time today's hearing began, Facebook had done what it could to ensure the day would feel light on news.

The company moved so quickly that Zuckerberg didn't always have time to think through potential negative consequences of product upgrades and changes. "The stock is running up on his comments".

Zuckerberg answered "yes" when asked if Facebook had been served any subpoenas from Mueller.

"(It) suggests that a: "users are not in control, and b: "Facebook itself has lost control of the data", the former NSW deputy privacy commissioner told AAP on Thursday.

And, of course, it was something that was picked up on by social media. "It's not like the question is, 'was this thing good or not.' This is one building block and we need to build other building blocks".

In 2010, Zuckerberg said privacy was simply no longer a social norm. How do we deal with the next step? Mr Zuckerberg said it was 'a clear mistake' to take the company's word it was not harvesting data. It posits that Facebook surreptitiously records audio using the microphones on users' smart phones, then uses voice recognition software to turn it into searchable terms that the site can use to place ads in the user's news feed.

The social media company revealed last week that 65,009 Facebook users here had their information shared inappropriately with Cambridge Analytica, which exploited the data for commercial and political use.

"In retrospect, that was clearly a mistake. I am going to suggest to you that you go back home and rewrite it".

But it still bothered West, who directs the Center for Technology Innovation at the Brookings Institution in Washington.

Zuckerberg will appear before Congress again this evening at 4pm to testify further.

Facebook is reeling in the aftermath of a pair of controversies.

On Tuesday, Zuckerberg promised to better protect Facebook users.

"So this is an arms race".

The CEO hesitantly named Google, Apple, Amazon and Microsoft as other big tech companies that "overlap" with Facebook in a variety ways.

"This is a serious matter, and I think people expect us to take action", Cornyn told reporters after his speech. From how the man of short stature used a booster seat while addressing the questions to hilariously changing the closed captions of Zuckerberg and senator Chuck Grassley, meme makers seem to have had gone to town.

Asked if Facebook executives have been interviewed by Special Counsel Robert Mueller, who is investigating Russian interference in the US election, Zuckerberg said: "Our work with the special counsel is confidential".

"I believe in what we're doing", he said.
