Facebook admitted Thursday to deleting old messages sent by Zuckerberg, even though most Facebook users are now unable to do the same. Several questions displayed an ignorance about the very basics of the platform and its business model.

U.S. Sen. John Cornyn asked whether Zuckerberg believed his company bears "some responsibility for the content" on his platform.

"Senator, we run ads", Zuckerberg replied. He said Facebook thought the data collection was "a closed case" because it thought the information had been discarded. "I'm not actually sure what that is referring to".

In a similar exchange, Sen.

The five-hour hearing saw senators launch questions ranging from censorship, freedom of speech and hate speech, consumer privacy to election interference. We're committed to getting this done in time for the critical months before the 2018 elections.

Now that you know the status of your data, what you decide to do with your account is up to you.

Zuckerberg again demurred, saying: "I'm going to direct my team to focus on this".

Other countries mentioned by Zuckerberg are US, Mexico, Brazil and India where the social media giant can affect the election process. "I just deleted them because I'm clearly not using them". We think offering people an ad-supported service is the most aligned with our mission of trying to connect everyone in the world, because we want to offer a free service that everyone can afford.

In his opening statement, Zuckerberg addressed Russian election interference and acknowledged that the company was too slow to respond and that it's "working hard to get better".

"America deserves a privacy bill of rights that puts consumers, not corporations, in control of their personal, sensitive information", said Markey. They did not, for the most part, press him on why he hadn't done that years ago. "The senators in the room made it fairly clear that if they are not willing to work with them they are willing to take action whether they want it or not", she said.

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".

Some Senators were not convinced by Zuckerberg's mea culpa. But he acknowledged that Facebook did not notify the FTC in 2015 when it first learned of that company's data-harvesting. One of the things that grabbed everyone's attention during the Senate testimony was Zuckerberg's booster cushion.

But there was no real challenge.

"We have a responsibility to protect your data, and if we can't then we don't deserve to serve you", he said. The 33-year old Facebook CEO faced 44 United States senators on day one of testimony and this will follow on Wednesday. It was. Was it open to regulation? Yes.
