Here's what Facebook's Mark Zuckerberg didn't answer during first Congress hearing

Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg testifies before the Senate

In response to numerous questions, rather than offering immediate answers Zuckerberg said he'd have his "team" get back to senators with details.

Regardless of whether or not Cambridge Analytica did actually access our private messages, the fact that Facebook is only now letting users know that their intimate conversations may have been read by a data firm they unwittingly gave access to their inboxes will make the recovery even more hard for the company. Mark Zuckerberg said that there will always be a free version of Facebook. And he reiterates previous statements that his company "didn't take a broad enough view of our responsibility, and that was a big mistake". "It was my mistake, and I'm sorry", Mark said.

Facebook has started reaching out to all its account holders - including the 87 million worldwide whose data was shared improperly - to let them know whether they were affected.

A number of the questions related to whether Facebook is a monopoly and if it has too much power - of course Mark Zuckerberg denied this.

Zuckerberg said its audit of third-party apps would highlight any misuse of personal information, and said the company would alert users instantly if it "found anything suspicious".

Facebook also became the platform of choice for a stunning Russian campaign of online misinformation that U.S. intelligence says was created to tilt the 2016 vote toward Donald Trump.

After the hearing, Zuckerberg said the social media platform has been investigating data gathering apps and he wants to prevent future interference in elections. Bill Nelson (D-FL.) raised the possibility of legislative regulation to curb data hacking, telling Zuckerberg that "if Facebook and other online companies will not or can not fix these privacy invasions, then we will".

Under "Data safety", the notes read, "Made mistakes, working hard to fix them".

He added: "The nature of these attacks is there are people in Russian Federation whose job it is to try and exploit our systems".

When asked if any of Cambridge Analytica's data was being stored in Russia, Zuckerberg said he didn't have any indication that that was the case. "It will take some time to work through all of the changes we need to make, but I'm committed to getting it right". The team behind Facebook's new program will go over all legitimate reports and respond as quickly as possible when a credible threat to user data is identified.
