Before senate hearing, Zuckerberg posts a Facebook message

Before senate hearing, Zuckerberg posts a Facebook message

Mark Zuckerberg, Facebook founder and CEO, will appear before congressional committees in Washington this week to face US lawmakers over privacy scandals and how the social media network harvests user data.

"In most cases, the information was limited to public profile, Page likes, birthday, and current city", it continues. "They'll give you all your data and you can go in and delete your account but if you're using that Facebook login on any other place that allows Facebook to log in, it will re-enable the account", Pugh said.

"In fact, Facebook was on notice that he could sell that user information - have you seen those terms of service before?".

Some senators of a certain age utilised posters to illustrate their questions, such as Democratic Senator Patrick Leahy, who has served in the Senate since 1975.

The company shared a preview of what the messages look like, but said the language may be tweaked during the roll out.

Zuckerberg now faces two days of congressional hearings, while Silicon Valley and much of the investment world hold their collective breath to see how lawmakers treat Facebook and its potential data security concerns.

Zuckerberg said his one of the greatest regrets was that Facebook has been slow in identifying the Russian information operations in 2016.

"Senator, I want to make sure that we get this right, so I'm going to have my team follow up with you on this afterwards", Zuckerberg responded.

Facebook has been under fire since the Cambridge Analytica news broke last month.

Earlier this year Mueller charged 13 Russian individuals and three Russian companies in a plot to interfere in the presidential election through a social media propaganda effort that included online ad purchases using USA aliases and politicking on US soil.

"What we know now is that Cambridge Analytica improperly accessed information by buying it". Previous reporting had put the number of users at about 50 million. "I've never consented to having Facebook collect my data, which can be used to draw very detailed inferences about my life, my habits, and my relationships". The FTC has confirmed it is investigating Facebook over possible privacy violations. In prepared remarks released by a U.S. congressional panel, Zuckerberg admitted he was too idealistic and failed to grasp how the platform - used by two billion people - could be abused and manipulated.
