How a Twitter user ripped apart Mark Zuckerberg over Facebook's data privacy

This app identifies dog breeds for you

- The Facebook privacy scandal has many people concerned if their information is at risk on the social media site.

The company has also launched a tool informing users if their data was accessed as part of the Cambridge Analytica breach.

Zuckerberg was to testify before senators on Tuesday and a House panel on Wednesday amid a firestorm over the hijacking of data on millions of Facebook users by the British firm Cambridge Analytica, which worked with Donald Trump's campaign. The most common questions asked Zuckerberg were a few things that Facebook had taken care of well in advance.

Zuckerberg was scheduled to testify in front of U.S. Congress Tuesday, and the company he founded in college is being investigated in the United Kingdom and by the U.S. Federal Trade Commission.

Senator Nelson also said, "If Facebook and other online companies will not or can not fix the privacy invasions we are going to have to".

Separately, the company also began alerting users that their data was gathered by Cambridge Analytica.

"If we find developers that misused personally identifiable information, we will ban them and tell everyone affected by those apps", Zuckerberg said.

Zuckerberg: "Senator, you can already delete any of the data that's there or delete all of your data".

Apparently, 30 million people showed interest in the testing app and voluntarily shared their personal data and Facebook friends' personal information.

Facebook has also said it will review thousands of apps to search for additional abuse.

Cambridge Analytica: Why didn't Facebook act sooner to the data breach, which happened back in 2015?

It was disclosed that Russians under fake names used the social network to try to influence USA voters in the months before and after the 2016 election. "Until we get it automated, there's a higher error rate than I'm happy with".

Zuckerberg paused, looking uncomfortable, and then said he wouldn't.

"To be clear, we don't offer an option today for people to pay to not show ads".

Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg arrives to testify before a joint hearing of the Commerce and Judiciary Committees on Capitol Hill in Washington, Tuesday, April 10, 2018, about the use of Facebook data to target American voters in the 2016 election. But he conceded that pushing for more regulation could actually end up benefiting big companies like Facebook, possibly at the expense of the next Facebook. They ranged from issues like Russian meddling in the 2016 campaign to hate speech to a lack of transparency in election advertising - all issues that have plagued Facebook in recent months, but all disparate problems that require different solutions.

"There will always be a version of Facebook that is free", Zuckerberg told the hearing.
