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 bogusreports about Facebook eavesdropping on conversations through the microphones on our smartphones.
