Facebook CEO Zuckerberg says his personal data sold to others

Senator Nelson also said, "If Facebook and other online companies will not or can not fix the privacy invasions we are going to have to".

Zuckerberg mostly held his composure, repeating numerous same well-rehearsed answers: He is sorry for the company's mistakes.

Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg is back on Capitol Hill.

Mr Zuckerberg also told the hearing that his company has a 200-strong counterterrorism team reviewing flagged posts and informations. Here's what we did learn.

But when faced with Congressional questions, Zuckerberg has been anything but transparent about how much responsibility his company should face for the ongoing scandal, which has led to some awkward exchanges.

Ali Mogharabi: CEO and co-founder of Facebook Mark Zuckerberg testified in front of Congress yesterday and answered questions about the latest data breach issue that involved Cambridge Analytica.

"There are 35,000 on-line pharmacies and the FDA thinks 96 percent of them are operating illegally", said McKinley as he showed pictures of Facebook ads for on-line pharmacies.

In other words, Zuckerberg has taken some blame, but he doesn't want his company to be sued for its actions (or inaction). It is possible that Facebook may come out with a variant which will require users to pay for the service and in return may not use their data for advertisements. It's unclear, however, how many of those apps are also owned by Facebook.

As for the federal Russian Federation 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". He said Facebook had considered the data collection "a closed case" and had not alerted the Federal Trade Commission. They told us that they did this.

"I'm not sure how we're going to implement that yet", he said. "There will always be a version of Facebook that is free".

Although Capito's remark about connectivity was aside from the point she was making-it drew Zuckerberg's attention. "That's the only way we can reach billions of people". There have been reports that Facebook can track a user's internet browsing activity even after that user has logged off of the Facebook platform.

MS senator Roger Wicker asked Zuckerberg about rumors that "Facebook can track users' Internet browsing activity even after that user has logged off the Facebook platform". I don't think that's hard for you to say yes to unless I'm missing something.

"We don't have an opt-out at the highest level".

Zuckerberg also was reminded of one of the first times he was forced to apologize for Facebook, when Long brought up Facemash-another site that Zuckerberg created in his Harvard dorm, one built to rate women on their looks. The firm that has been doing its own damage control to respond to questions that it used wrongly or illegally acquired data to manipulate up to 71 million Americans (over 87 million users' data was sold in total). Zuckerberg countered that putting together a concise agreement has been a challenge. "Your user agreement sucks".
