Mark Zuckerberg says Facebook working with Robert Mueller in Russia probe

Facebook is rallying as Mark Zuckerberg testifies to Congress

Separately, the company began alerting some of its users that their data was gathered by Cambridge Analytica.

In response, he initially said no, but reiterated Facebook's new investigation into third-party apps on the platform was seeking to discover if there had been any other cases of misuse.

Still, take, for instance, U.S. Sen.

Zuckerberg responded by noting that Facebook produces enterprise software but doesn't consider itself an enterprise software company, and it builds planes but doesn't consider itself an aerospace company.

"Senator, we run ads", Zuckerberg said patiently. "All of that", Hoffman said. You once posted a picture of the inside of your flat, after getting that new rug, you're basically inviting people in! The hearing marked his first time ever testifying on Capitol Hill.

Well, no, senator. It's Twitter.

Do I have to have an active Facebook account to find out if my personal data was harvested? When asked if Facebook is a media company, Mark Zuckerberg said that he considers it to be a technology company. Here is a short timeline of Ryan's dodges.

The data firm released a lengthy statement ahead of Zuckerberg's testimony.

Facebook, along with Google, Apple and Microsoft, is a tech behemoth whose operations touch almost every aspect of our daily lives.

He called Facebook a "virtual monopoly" and said "continued self-regulation is not the right answer when it comes to dealing with the abuses we have seen on Facebook".

UK-based Cambridge Analytica is learnt to have denied using data of Facebook users in India even as the social media giant has admitted that 5.62 lakh people in the country were potentially affected by the data breach, according to people in the know. Shares in Facebook posted their biggest daily gain in nearly two years on Tuesday, closing up 4.5 per cent. They were down 0.7 per cent in early trading on Wednesday. "We do not allow hate groups on Facebook overall", he added.

Or maybe he was talking specifically about how easy it is to launch from a dorm room to stratospheric wealth? "We don't sell data to anyone".

Facebook has also been on the front lines of a fight against Russian interference in the 2016 U.S. presidential election, with some 126 million users potentially having been exposed to content produced and circulated by outside propagandists trying to foment discord.

Zuckerberg was there to defend the company he founded in 2004 amidst the growing discomfort within governments and people due to the Cambridge Analytica scandal.

He would then call it a "big challenge, but we've solved problems before, [we're] going to solve this one".
