Hearings prove Zuckerberg can play DC's game - but politicians can't play Facebook's

Hearings prove Zuckerberg can play DC's game - but politicians can't play Facebook's

"It was instructive learning more about the challenges that Facebook is facing in the areas of privacy and security", Dan Boneh, a professor of Computer Science at the Applied Cryptography group at Stanford University, said in a statement.

On regulation, Zuckerberg said he was open to it.

Later on, Rep. Barton read Zuckerberg a letter from a constituent voicing concern over Facebook's treatment of the conservative women and asked the tech giant for his response.

For many questions, Zuckerberg said he would need to consult with his team to provide answers - at times exhibiting a surprising lack of familiarity with the privacy debate that has sprung up around his company's activities ...

He said that since 2016, Facebook had learned the methods used to influence public opinion and was better prepared to deal with them. However, the company dropped the ball and illegally transferred millions of users' personal information to political consulting firm Cambridge Analytica. Wylie has said he and Eunoia have deleted the data.

On one point, Zuckerberg undercut his consistent message that Facebook users have control of their data. I started Facebook, I run it, and, at the end of the day, I am responsible for what happens here.

Lujan criticised Zuckerberg and his platform for taking information from people who haven't even signed a privacy agreement.

Fake videos on social media about strikes against Syria
Russia's military said Syrian air defence units downed 71 out of 103 cruise missiles launched by the USA and its allies. As pictures of the bombing raids aftermath continue to emerge, Mr Trump said he "could not have had a better result".

Facebook Chief Executive Mark Zuckerberg navigated through the first of two USA congressional hearings without making any further promises to support new legislation or change how the social network does business.

Zuckerberg said it would take "many months" to complete an audit of other apps that might also have improperly gathered or shared users' data.

"Fifteen percent of our panelists said there is nothing Facebook can do to regain trust as they are just ready to move on to something else", wrote Carolina Milanesi, principal analyst at Creative Strategies, a market intelligence firm that worked on the survey with Techpinions.

By the close of Wednesday's hearing, Zuckerberg had spent roughly 10 out of the previous 24 hours testifying before Congress.

In his testimony before a joint hearing of the Senate Commerce, Science and Transportation Committee and Senate Judiciary Committee, Mr Zuckerberg noted that 2018 was an extremely important year for elections as several nations were going to polls this year.

Seemingly unimpressed, Republican Sen. Zuckerberg said the European standard, General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), to come into effect on May 25, was more stringent than what was now in place at Facebook and suggested it could serve as a rough model for United States rules in the future.

As for the federal Russian Federation probe that has occupied much of Washington's attention for months, he said he had not been interviewed by special counsel Mueller's team, but "I know we're working with them". Stressing that there is an online propaganda "arms race" with Russian Federation and it was important to make sure no one interferes in any more elections including in India, Zuckerberg told Congress that his own personal data was "improperly shared". People took the test and Kogan collected the details of the people and their Facebook friends who took the test. Kogan sold the details to Cambridge Analytica. Would an ad-free, paid version of Facebook work, anyway? He assured senators the company would handle the situation differently today.
