Mark Zuckerberg and US senators inspire endless memes — Facebook

Under questioning by lawmakers, the tech billionaire said Facebook users are in "full control of the majority of their data". He offered no details, citing a concern about confidentiality rules of the investigation. "They're going to keep on getting better at this and we need to keep investing on getting better at this too".

But many of the senators were skeptical.

Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg told a Congressional committee on Wednesday that his own personal information was among the large sum of data wrongfully obtained by political analysis firm Cambridge Analytica.

Frank Pallone, D-N.J., asked if Facebook would change the default settings to lessen collectible data.

Open MIC isn't the only group bringing pressure on Zuckerberg.

Facebook's CEO Mark Zuckerberg appeared in front of the US Senate to defend and explain its part in the Cambridge Analytica Scandal.

"Check below to see if your information may have been shared with Cambridge Analytica by the app "This Is Your Digital Life." the post reads". He also said Facebook does not collect information from users' verbal conversations through mobile devices' microphones.

"Senator, I think that this is a really hard question", Zuckerberg replied, "and I think it's one of the reasons why we struggle with it".

Dick Durbin, US Democratic Senator (Illinois): "If you message to anybody this week would you share with us the names of the people you've messaged". "How is today's apology different?" While we might not have gotten anything concrete out of the 33-yr old billionaire's statement, the interaction did point us to the direction Facebook might take in the coming years.

The social media service is constantly battling "people in Russia whose job is to try to exploit our system", Zuckerberg said. In testimony Tuesday to a Senate committee, Zuckerberg took the blame for the disclosure.

The crowd of cardboard Zuckerbergs, planted between the Capitol building and the Library of Congress, was designed to call attention to the fake accounts that spread disinformation on the social network, according to Avaaz, a global activist network that organized the public display.

Mr Zuckerberg said that he believes regulation of his industry is "inevitable".

"Issues about violating people's privacy don't seem to be surmountable".

CA has been accused of mining personal information of millions of Facebook users illegitimately to help political campaigns and influence polls in several countries. There's also a way to check manually.

"Your user agreement sucks", Senator John Kennedy, a Louisiana Republican, told Zuckerberg.

The site also noted that he got a boost during his the testimony. "I started Facebook, I run it, and I'm responsible for what happens here". "Congresswoman, I'm not sure what that means", he said.

The process seems to be taking its time.
