Best Memes From Mark Zuckerberg's US Senate Appearance

Facebook Won't Let Non-Users Opt Out Of “Shadow Profiles”

What Mark Zuckerberg said about Facebook Messenger Kids

Europe has taken on criticism for exporting its laws to the rest of the world, but Laidlaw said given "the privacy breaches of trust" in the cases of Facebook and Cambridge Analytica, there's a need for this stronger regulation. And if he's hiding information from us, they've gotta know that, too, and legally require him to turn it over.

Sen. Lindsey Graham pitched a rare hardball question to Zuckerberg Tuesday: Is Facebook a monopoly?

He said it was inevitable that the industry was going to be regulated eventually, but he didn't commit to anything specific.

One of the lawmakers, Representative Yvette Clarke (D-NY), referred to Zuckerberg as "Zuckerman". "Some things are striking during this conversation", she said.

"It's very clear that Cambridge Analytica and these kinds of companies are the product of an environment to which Facebook has contributed greatly", says Mr Popov.

Facebook warned users earlier this week that people who used Kogan's app "may have" shared messages from users inboxes. In the course of more than four hours, he apologized and took responsibility for a data scrape of 87 million users by British political consulting firm Cambridge Analytica during the 2016 presidential elections. He gave no further details.

Facebook announced on Wednesday that it will no longer channel funds into an effort that opposed giving social media users more control over their personal data.

As Mark Zuckerberg, embattled C.E.O. of Facebook, has been testifying before Congress this week, the people of the Internet have (predictably) descended like vultures to pick apart his testimony - and his appearance. "And in the future, only apps we approve that agree to strict requirements will be allowed to use the Events API", said Schroepfer.

Zuckerberg was unable to answer Dingell, the MI congresswoman, when she asked how frequently Facebook used computer code embedded in websites to gather dossiers on virtually everyone online.

We can't expect a company like Facebook to protect our privacy; we must do that for ourselves.

In response to Zuckerberg's suggestion that censorship affected "all political groups" on Facebook, Rep. Jeff Duncan pointed out that there were few complaints from left-wingers on the subject. And while its 2.13 billion monthly users don't pay any money to use the core service, Facebook makes plenty of money - millions daily - by selling access to users' data to advertisers.

Zuckerberg was extremely awkward, but most of all... calm?

The performance had favorable results. Over the two days, the value of Zuckerberg's stake in the company grew about $US3 billion ($NZ4 billion). "I would appreciate if you do that" said Rep. Duncan. The data collection didn't violate any rules.

For instance, a number of congresspeople referenced bogus reports about Facebook eavesdropping on conversations through the microphones on our smartphones.
