Zuckerberg addresses rumours about Facebook tapping your microphone

Zuckerberg addresses rumours about Facebook tapping your microphone

Dozens of protestors gathered outside Congress before the hearing wearing Zuckerberg masks and #DeleteFacebook T-shirts.

In a congressional hearing Tuesday, Sen. And at the moment when the country needed a smart conversation about privacy, what it got was meandering questions and misfires.

Zuckerberg says Facebook can handle its own oversight.

"Senator, we run ads", Zuckerberg replied.

The new program "will reward people with first-hand knowledge and proof of cases where a Facebook platform app collects and transfers people's data to another party to be sold, stolen or used for scams or political influence", product security chief Collin Greene said in a statement. "I'm not actually sure what that is referring to".

Absolutely, Zuckerberg responded, saying later in an exchange with Sen.

The notifications began appearing hours before Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg testified about the privacy scandal in a US Senate hearing Tuesday. I'm committed to getting this right.

For his part, Zuckerberg has apologized profusely for the data leak.

"You know, like every TV and radio station in the history of ever". There are conversations I have with my friends that I wouldn't want my family to see.

One comment that sparked much interest was Zuckerberg presumably suggesting that a paid, ad-free version of the social media platform could be a possibility in the future, which would give users an option to stop their information being shared with advertisers. "I just deleted them because I'm clearly not using them".

The senators' questions also lacked focus.

Facebook disclosed in September that Russians under fake names had used the social network to try to influence USA voters in the months before and after the 2016 election, writing about inflammatory subjects, setting up events, and buying ads.

The company started testing the authorization process this week, and people will begin seeing the label and additional information in the United States later this spring.

The fallout from the scandal, and Facebook's response, will continue for some time.

"Are you aware of anyone in the leadership at Facebook who was in a conversation where a decision was made not to inform your users?"

"Senator, no, I would probably not choose to do that publicly here", Zuckerberg said.

Zuckerberg: "Senator, yes. Of course". But he acknowledged that Facebook did not notify the FTC in 2015 when it first learned of that company's data-harvesting. In addition, Zuckerberg is a non-government witness, which Judiciary often does not require to go under oath.

But there was no real challenge.

Zuckerberg finally admitted to Harris that blindly trusting Cambridge Analytica's word on deleting illegally stashed user data was a big mistake.
