Zuckerberg Survives Testimony, But Will Regulation Follow?

Mark Zuckerberg: Facebook will predict hate speech content within the next decade

Facebook became the platform of choice for a stunning Russian campaign of online misinformation that US intelligence says was designed to tilt the 2016 vote toward Donald Trump. Seeing as Zuckerberg was still unwilling to provide a direct response to this line of questioning, the senator asked him if Facebook is a monopoly, and Zuckerberg rejected that idea.

As Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg faced the scrutiny of over 40 US senators, Twitter paid close attention to not just his words but also his body language, the awkwardly oversized-suit and even his chair.

Zuckerberg said Facebook was taking steps to ensure integrity of elections in countries like the United States, India, Brazil, and Pakistan.

Twice during testimony, Zuckerberg said that there "will always be a version of Facebook that will be free", insinuating that his company is considering asking users to pay for certain privileges, or to avoid advertising. Cruz specifically asked Zuckerberg about Palmer Luckey, a former Facebook employee who left the company after his conservative political views were revealed; Zuck denied those political views had anything to do with his departure. Both start by saying that Facebook "understands the importance of keeping your data safe", but that's as far as the commonality goes. I'm committed to getting this right.

How to watch Zuckerberg's hearings?

The notes included an answer in case Zuckerberg felt "attacked" and a strict instruction not to mention compliance with Europe's incoming data regulation.

It was a rare moment when the senators, who had an average age of 62 according to Vox, weren't being mocked.

In the prepared remarks, Zuckerberg said the company has a responsibility to make sure what happened with Cambridge Analytica doesn't happen again. He said the commission will work with foundations across the set up a committee of academic experts who will come up with research topics and select independent researchers to study them.
