Who's going to protect us from Facebook, US Senators ask Mark Zuckerberg

The Bospar poll asked Americans how long is too long for a company to wait before responding to a crisis, and found that more than one in three - 35 percent - answered 24 hours. Now, you know that and I know that.
Committee members of both parties asked Zuckerberg about the Cambridge Analytica data breach that resulted in the disclosure of personal information belonging to possibly 87 million people - as well as other matters relating to privacy of information on the website. "While this is common industry practice, we believe this step, winding down over the next six months, will help improve people's privacy on Facebook".
Facebook's data policies have been thrust into the limelight following reports that United Kingdom data firm Cambridge Analytica, which has ties to President Trump's 2016 presidential campaign, improperly obtained data from Facebook. "Zuckerberg said "no, [he] would probably not choose to do that publicly here".
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, Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerbergsaid at a five-hour marathon session at the US Congress. Speaking to the Senate, he rebuffed the question for a full minute before conceding that Facebook tracks that information, but argued that most users understand that and desire it.
(For a primer on that, see this Gizmodo article.) Later, Ben Lujan, a Democrat from New Mexico, pointed out that "people who don't even have an account have to sign up for an account" to find out what data is held about them. But he said his company "can do a better job of explaining how advertising works".
2017 was rocked by the news of Russian interference in the United States presidential elections and how social media channels, including Facebook, had been exploited for the same. "But at the same time it doesn't seem like future activities are prevented".
Seemingly unimpressed, Republican Sen.
Zuckerberg clarified on multiple occasions that the company doesn't sell users' data. He cleverly deflected the question by giving an irrelevant statement - "Most of the time when people talk about our scale, they are referencing we have 2 billion people", and "The vast majority are outside the US".
He added that Facebook is cooperating with the special counsel investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election. We do that for a number of reasons, including security and including measuring ads to make sure that the ad experiences are the most effective, which of course people can opt out of. He is in the pocket of the US state.

Looking to watch the second day of Mark Zuckerberg's congressional testimony online? Asked who owns "the virtual you", Zuckerberg's favoured response was to note that you own all the "content" you upload, and can delete it at will.
On Wednesday, Zuckerberg told the House Energy and Commerce Committee he is not opposed to some kind of regulation. "I started Facebook, I run it, and at the end of the day I'm responsible for what happens here". Informative, awkward, meme-worthy, take your pick!
