Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg Testifies At Joint Senate Commerce  Judiciary Hearing

Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg Testifies At Joint Senate Commerce Judiciary Hearing

Facebook is looking to know basically as much as possible about its users.

"It's clear now we didn't do enough", Zuckerberg said on the protection of private user data and to prevent the hijacking of data on millions by Cambridge Analytica.

Facebook's CEO repeated the company line defending its introduction of a messaging app for very young children: It just wants to provide a way for parents to keep in touch with their children.

So Zuckerberg, who owns more than 401.4 million shares in Facebook, got almost $3 billion richer in the past few days.

Still, Facebook's stock remains 10 percent below where it stood before the scandal, a decline that has wiped out about $50 billion in shareholder wealth.

Zuckerberg confirmed that his company was cooperating with special counsel Robert Mueller in his investigation into Russia's meddling in the 2016 US Presidential election.

The ad, which featured a crucifix, was rejected by Facebook over Easter on the grounds that its content was "excessively violent" and "sensational". I started Facebook, I run it, and, at the end of the day, I am responsible for what happens here.

The company's data collection practices are a huge focus of the current debate-and the scandal that led to Zuckerberg's appearance in Congress. "Let's say I take a photo and I share it with you". "Things like hate speech, or conspiracy theories".

The 33-year-old techie was grilled by US Congressmen and Congresswomen more closely for around five hours but he answered the tough and "silly" questions alike bearing a smile on his face.

Lirot said he will file a motion as soon as Thursday asking Gievers to lift the stay. He denied that NY is behind other states.

On regulation, Zuckerberg said he was open to it.

"It is inevitable that there will need to be some regulation" of internet firms, Zuckerberg said on Wednesday, but he again steered away from any specifics. Ben Lujan, Mark admitted that Facebook occasionally collects data from people who have not signed up to the platform "for security reasons".

Johnson, R-Ohio, and McKinley, R-W.Va., are members of the House Energy and Commerce Committee.

Zuckerberg responded that there were a number of areas in which Facebook needs to improve regulation of its service.

In his opening statement committee chair Greg Walden quoted the company's early motto to "move fast and break things", asking whether the company had "moved too fast and broken too many things".

"We heard feedback from thousands of parents and they want control over their communication with kids", Zuckerberg said. Cambridge Analytica then obtained the data and was said to have used it to try to influence elections around the world.

California Democrat Anna Eshoo asked Mr. Zuckerberg: "Are you willing to change your business model to protect users' privacy?"

Long continued, however, and asked for further clarification regarding the goal of FaceMash, "You put up pictures of two women and decided which one was more attractive of the two, is that right?"

The company does this by using different techniques integrated into pages around the web.

The 33-year-old CEO said Facebook was in a constant struggle to guard against Russian manipulation of the Facebook platform to influence elections in the U.S. and elsewhere.
