Facebook: Mark Zuckerberg and United States senators inspire endless memes

Facebook has been reeling from its worst-ever privacy failure. If somebody takes digital information, under the Criminal Code it's not theft ... "And in the future, only apps we approve that agree to strict requirements will be allowed to use the Events API", said Schroepfer. Some are suggesting that Zuckerberg was not keen on actually explaining how the social network works, and a continuing lack of understanding could support that.

"As CEO you didn't know some key facts", Dingell said.

Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg arrives to testify before a joint hearing of the US Senate Commerce, Science and Transportation Committee and Senate Judiciary Committee on Capitol Hill, April 10, 2018 in Washington, DC. "I started Facebook, I run it, and I'm responsible for what happens here", he said. According to a recent survey about Facebook users and their expectations, almost 60 percent of respondents expected the company to collect some data about them. He disclosed that Facebook did not initially notify the Federal Trade commission of the Cambridge Analytica data issues because the company had "considered it a closed case". Third parties will no longer be able to make quite such free use of the unfathomable quantities of data that Facebook accumulates.

"I can't let you filibuster right now", Republican Marsha Blackburn said at one point.

Wired collated a complete list of all the questions Facebook's CEO said he would have to refer to his team.

"We're not going to share people's information except for with the people that they've asked for it to be shared". But when asked about a specific practice, such as collecting data about your location even when you're not using Facebook, almost 70 percent of people did not expect the company to do so. Alastair Mactaggart, the chief proponent of the proposed initiative, said: "We're gratified that Facebook has dropped its opposition to the California Consumer Privacy Act".

Whether Facebook tracks a user's internet browsing activity even after he has logged off of Facebook, and, if so, whether Facebook notifies users of such tracking.

Man, now is the time to sell a bridge, the everglades or snake oil on Facebook because business would be great! He also said that the firm will be increasing resources to investigate apps and take appropriate actions. Zuckerberg was seemingly prepared for questions on a range of issues from Cambridge Analytica to Facebook's default-privacy settings.

"Every single thing you do on Facebook - everything you click, every page you like, every person you interact with - becomes part of how the platform understands you", Samuel said, adding it is used to profile you and target advertisements in manipulative ways.

"I could use that information in order to send them ads suggesting that they could vote online - something that happened in the USA presidential election - in order to discourage those people from actually going to a polling place and casting a ballot".
