Watch Mark Zuckerberg Testify Before Congress Live

Diamond And Silk

Facebook admitted Thursday to deleting old messages sent by Zuckerberg, even though most Facebook users are now unable to do the same.

He's about two billion pounds richer after yesterday's hearing - with Facebook stock (of which he has loads) rocketing in value.

When Zuckerberg finally responded to the CA scandal a few weeks ago, he promised his company would take "responsibility" to ensure that "there aren't any other Cambridge Analyticas out there,", and to ensure "transparency" about future fixes.

Technology companies have stumbled as investors wondered if the government will implement tighter regulations on technology companies.

NY Times took it upon themselves to provide readers with statement wise fact-checks on both sides, but here we talk about the biggest lies that came out of Zuckerberg's mouth and the half truth's that he tried to spin in order to get out of further escalation.

"I think everyone should have control over how their information is used", Mr Zuckerberg said.

Facebook has started reaching out to all its account holders - including the 87 million worldwide whose data was shared improperly - to let them know whether they were affected.

Ali Mogharabi: CEO and co-founder of Facebook Mark Zuckerberg testified in front of Congress yesterday and answered questions about the latest data breach issue that involved Cambridge Analytica. A notification that appeared on Facebook for some users Tuesday told them that "one of your friends" used Facebook to log into a now-banned personality quiz app called "This Is Your Digital Life".

"Which is why we are going to have more than 20,000 people, by the end of this year, working on security and content review across the company". This lack of understanding points to a broader problem the company has long struggled to address: many of its users are simply not as tech-savvy (or Facebook-savvy) as those behind the social network.

The first couple hours of Mark Zuckerberg's Senate testimony Tuesday were, as Time puts it, "tedious".

Though only 270 000 people consented to giving the app their Facebook profile information, the app gained access to 87-million people, including almost 60 000 South Africans.

"How do you sustain a business model in which users don't pay for your service?" Bill Nelson (D-FL.) raised the possibility of legislative regulation to curb data hacking, telling Zuckerberg that "if Facebook and other online companies will not or can not fix these privacy invasions, then we will". "I can follow up or have my team follow up to give you the data on that".
