“I am sorry”: Zuckerberg faces congressional inquisition

Mark Zuckerberg testimony live blog: Facebook CEO to testify before Congress

Zuckerberg appeared before a joint hearing of Justice and Commerce Committees in the United States, answering questions about the data and privacy policies at Facebook. Allowed only five minutes each, the senators also raised a host of other concerns.

It also noted some of the high-profile companies that have deleted Facebook, including Mozilla, Tesla, and WhatsUp.

Zuckerberg said Facebook was a platform for all ideas and dismissed a suggestion from Cruz that conservatives were not getting hired at the company. "As far as the Myanmar situation is concerned, social media is Facebook, and Facebook is social media", he said. That may have been meant to confirm a commitment to Facebook's current practices.

"There will always be a version of Facebook that is free", Zuckerberg told the hearing.

Greene said the new offer was inspired by the "bug bounty" offered by Facebook and other online services to reward people who find security flaws.

Neutral platform or responsible content curator?

If the recent data scandal involving Facebook has done anything, it has brought privacy to the forefront of user's minds.

Zuckerberg released his opening statement on Monday before he testifies in front of the Senate Committee on the Judiciary, and the Senate Committee on Commerce, Science, and Transportation, starting at 2 p.m. ET on Tuesday.

"The question is what information Facebook's collecting, who they're sending it to, and whether they've asked me in advance, my permission to do that", said Durbin. But that liability shield has come under a partial challenge recently, notably by legislation recently passed in Congress that requires tech companies to prevent sex-trafficking on their sites.

One such exchange: Senator Orrin Hatch, R-Utah, asked Zuckerberg how Facebook makes money. He acknowledged that the company was too slow to respond to Russian election interference and said it was "working hard to get better". Also, if the relationship fails, you don't want the fact that your status has gone back to single to appear on all your friend's news feeds. This is useful to disconnect those third-party apps from your Facebook account that might be leaking your data.

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

Mr Zuckerberg frequently admitted to making mistakes, including not informing users as soon as they knew about the data breach.

To see if you were one of those whose data was improperly shared with Cambridge Analytica, you need to visit this Facebook Help Centre page. "We considered it a closed case", he said. "Is that a fair thing for a user of Facebook to expect?"

United Nations officials investigating a possible genocide in Myanmar said last month that Facebook had been a source of anti-Rohingya propaganda.

Zuckerberg also said Facebook was working with Special Counsel Robert Mueller, who is investigating ties between Russian Federation and President Donald Trump's presidential campaign.

Blumenthal: "All of the information that you collect as a result of purchases from data brokers, as well as tracking them?". "Who is Facebook's biggest competition?"

Zuckerberg's contrition "won't matter much without additional action, some of which might even be foundational to Facebook's entire business model", Cornyn said. This could involve sending data to other companies that intend to sell it like Cambridge Analytica, using it for political influence, or plain old scamming.
