John Thune of South Dakota said Zuckerberg's company had a 14-year history of apologizing for "ill-advised decisions" related to user privacy.
Zuckerberg shot down the claim, which he described as a conspiracy theory, during a five-hour congressional hearing during which he was quizzed about Facebook's role in Russian interference in the 2016 US election, and the Cambridge Analytica private data scandal.
The committee currently has 55 members, including 31 Republicans, and is chaired by Rep. Greg Walden, a Republican from Oregon.
During that privacy breach, Facebook exposed the email addresses and phone numbers of six million users, though it later became apparent that a chunk of those accounts were never handed over to the platform directly by Facebook users. There seems to be a faith, expressed most strongly by the Democrats, that in partnership with the new-and-improved Zuckerberg these problems can be regulated away. Now you can just say "Alexa, how is traffic?" or "Alexa, what's my commute?" and Amazon will tell you what to expect from your drive.
Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg has admitted that his personal data was handed over to election consultants Cambridge Analytica, the British firm accused of helping politicians use Facebook data to manipulate users' voting intentions around the world.
"I started Facebook, I run it. And I'm responsible for what happens here", Zuckerberg said.
I think that may be what this is all about.
As for the federal Russia probe that has occupied much of Washington's attention for months, he said he had not been interviewed by special counsel Mueller's team, but "I know we're working with them".
Before Facebook chief executive Mark Zuckerberg faced a barrage of questions from lawmakers in Washington on Tuesday, an advocacy group staged a public spectacle of its own.
In Senate testimony Tuesday, he promised to submit proposals for regulating social media companies and work with lawmakers to craft legislation.
Hatch: "How do you sustain a business model in which users don't pay for your service?" Coöperating in the fantasy that it has our best interests in mind heightens the danger it poses. It is literally just what we do.
He outlined steps the company has taken to restrict outsiders' access to people's personal information. Zuckerberg is its CEO, he chairs its corporate board, and he's the controlling shareholder on that board.
Bosworth was Zuckerberg's teaching fellow at Harvard, and he has been intimately involved in many of the company's decisions.
