The 5 biggest takeaways from Mark Zuckerberg's appearance before the Senate

12 Abril 2018

Zuckerberg said he's open to right kinds of regulations on Facebook and data privacy and promised Sen. All opinions expressed are those of the authors. Zuckerberg was genuinely flustered when the Illinois Democrat asked, "Would you be comfortable sharing the name of the hotel you stayed in last night?" Facebook has itself denied it on multiple occasions. And the tech illiteracy of many senators was on painful display, with Zuckerberg repeatedly having to explain basic concepts and features of Facebook: Zuckerberg explained Facebook doesn't sell user data at least three times. "We have many systems in place to prevent the sale of illegal goods, and do not allow ads around the sale of endangered animals", Facebook said in a statement. We show ads based on people's interests and other profile information - not what you're talking out loud about.

The questioning was hit-and-miss, depending on who was grilling the Facebook CEO.

Zuckerberg needs to do the opposite. "How is today's apology different?"

We have two lead stories tonight.

"It was my mistake, and I'm sorry", Zuckerberg said.

Zuckerberg said Facebook is going through "a broader philosophical shift in how we approach our responsibility as a company".

The most devastating criticism came from Sen.

The SEC declined to comment Monday on whether the whistleblower complaint triggered an investigation of the company.

In a secret complaint filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission, wildlife preservation advocates allege that Facebook's failure to stop traders using its service for illegal activity violates the social network's responsibilities as a publicly traded company. Senator Ted Cruz used his five minutes to grill the 33-year-old CEO on what Cruz called a "pervasive pattern of political censorship" on the site.

Zuckerberg's performance stood in sharp contrast to some public appearances earlier in his career, during which he stumbled with answers while perspiration glistened on his forehead.

Of course, one of the big ironies of today's Senate hearing is that if Congress did decide to get serious about privacy-yes, yes, I know. It wasn't as if senators could forget about that.

If you can't remember how to spell a word you don't need to look it up online or bother someone else in your home. "I actually am not aware of a subpoena". Executives from Facebook, Google and Twitter testified before Senate and House Intelligence Committees in November 2017 about possible Russian manipulation of U.S. social media during the 2016 election campaigns.

Negotiations over price and delivery are often initiated by Facebook Messenger.

"We knew that they had your data, but the extent of what is being breached is a concern for me. I started Facebook, I run it, and I'm responsible for what happens here".

It was revealed in March that millions of its users' information was shared with Cambridge Analytica-a firm that provided data to President Trump's election campaign in 2016. "We will fix it. We will take steps to cure the problems, to fix the weaknesses'". He alleged that because 270,000 people took the quiz, the data of some 50 million users, mainly in the US, was harvested without their explicit consent via their friend networks.
