Will the House challenge Mark Zuckerberg more than the Senate?

Will the House challenge Mark Zuckerberg more than the Senate?

The hearings were meant to inform lawmakers of Facebook's approach to data handling and privacy in the wake of recent revelations that political consulting firm Cambridge Anlaytica improperly obtained data on up to 87 million Facebook users from the academic, Aleksandr Kogan.

The Facebook CEO's at-times awkwardness saw him being compared to Star Trek's Data - an android who struggles with human behaviour and emotions.

McKinley suggested the company has the information necessary to take down the listings, but has yet to do so.

"The GDPR requires us to do a few more things and we are going to extend that to the world", he said.

Recent comments by Facebook executives also echo outside research conducted by analyst firms like Jefferies Equity Research.

In both hearings before the Senate, Zuckerberg only mentioned two kinds of data: the information that people decide to share on the platform, and the data that is automatically collected about people's behavior. A senator asked Zuckerberg whether Facebook monitors the messages he sends through WhatsApp, which the company also owns.

But when asked whether Facebook would commit to minimizing user data collection as much as possible, he said: "This is a complex issue that deserves more than a one word answer". While this week the Silicon Valley giant's stock has experience a modest recovery as its CEO appears calm and collected in front of USA lawmakers, the high-flying FAANG stock saw roughly $100 billion shaved off its market capitalization in the weeks following its latest data crisis. So, to put those numbers into better perspective, that means around 36.38 million people in the U.S. have deleted the Facebook phone app, while 19.26 million have deleted their accounts altogether.

"Mr. Zuckerberg", he said, "I remember well your first visit to Capitol Hill back in 2010".

Mark Zuckerberg has spent an bad lot of time in the hot seat over the last two days. They indicate forwarding the message to a certain number of your friends in order not to pay for Facebook as the friends count number would indicate you are a frequent user.

"I am indeed wary that you are only acting now out of concern for your brand and are making changes that should have been made long ago", Democrat Paul Tonko said. Also, maybe you don't want to wait around for Facebook to get to your account's notification.

Zuckerberg explained today that Facebook's audits of data harvesting by outside apps would take "many months" to complete. Zuckerberg was seemingly prepared for questions on a range of issues from Cambridge Analytica to Facebook's default-privacy settings. "There is nothing that prevents a political party in Canada from using Facebook or any other advertising platform to micro-target people".

"I could use that information in order to send them ads suggesting that they could vote online - something that happened in the US presidential election - in order to discourage those people from actually going to a polling place and casting a ballot".
