Day 2 of Mark Zuckerberg's congressional testimony

Businesses can upload their data to Facebook to see if the ads they run on Facebook lead to sales in their stores; they do this via something Facebook calls offline conversions.

"We didn't take a broad enough view of our responsibility and that was a big mistake", he said. I took to the rainy streets of Seattle's Fremont neighborhood to find out.

Plenty of the jokes about the hearing had to do with The Social Network - the 2010 film which told the story of Facebook's creation.

Wearing a dark suit and tie and prefacing nearly every remark with "Congressman" or "Congresswoman", Zuckerberg appeared even more controlled than he did on Tuesday, as he refrained from cracking jokes and flashed few smiles. Here's what we did learn.

Twitch's live stream of the event featured its own roast of Zuckerberg, but he wasn't the only target of mockery at the hearing.

The 87 million Facebook users had their data harvested by a third-party app posing as a personality quiz.

For all of Zuckerberg's claims that Facebook users own their data, users - and non-users - have no way of determining the full trove of data that the company stores on an individual. Those who say they have "nothing to hide" often forget about the information they hide all the time.

The organization collecting data has to provide a copy of all personal data collected for free, as well as let you share the data with other companies.

Although numerous questions that were asked seemed a bit off-topic-often due to the apparent lack of understanding about the company-some senators did focus their attention on the topic at hand. Silicon Valley wants to make sure young companies get the same chance Facebook has had to put their data to use. He's less willing to talk about how or if you can decide what advertisers and marketers see when you log in to Facebook in the first place.

Rep. Jan Schakowsky, a Democrat from IL, recounted a long list of Zuckerberg's apologies over the years before concluding: "This is proof to me that self-regulation does not work".

But when asked if his data had been improperly used he replied: "Yes" and gave no further details. Those doing the questioning were also easy marks, many of them having received donations from Facebook, and also not exactly being tech experts themselves.

However, as the jurisdiction issue clarified in the following years, a Belgium district court eventually ruled that Facebook must end its shadow tracking, delete all the shadow profiles it had illegally created over the years, and comply with European Union privacy laws.

If your information wasn't shared, you'll get a message saying that it doesn't appear you or your friends logged into the app, so you're all good.

Zuckerberg says he doesn't think Facebook has a monopoly. "I think we all need to start actually prompting representatives to ask tougher questions".

For many people, Facebook is the swiss army knife of their social lives. "That's the only way we can reach billions of people".

Facebook is under pressure to explain how it tracks people around the web - and why. Zuckerberg was unable to answer Dingell when she asked how many website pages had such buttons.

Today is the second day of congressional hearings for Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg. The legislation would govern how internet companies gather data and notify consumers about the use of their data.

"We don't have an opt-out at the highest level".

Cambridge Analytica suspended its previous CEO, Alexander Nix, one day after he alluded to tactics of the firm that may have violated USA campaign finance laws in a hidden-camera expose by Britain's Channel 4. Zuckerberg countered that putting together a concise agreement has been a challenge. "As long as there are people sitting in Russian Federation whose job it is to interfere with elections around the world, this is going to be an ongoing conflict", he said. "Your user agreement sucks".
