Facebook reveals 63 A/NZ users took quiz behind Cambridge Analytica scandal

Mr. Zuckerberg goes to Washington Facebook chief's first day of testimony on Capitol Hill

Facebook began notifying users if their personal data and information was compromised by Cambridge Analytica on Tuesday morning, hours before founder and CEO Mark Zuckerberg is to testify in front of Congress.

Durbin was among many senators who grilled Zuckerberg on what the social network collected on its users, following revelations that the Trump campaign-affiliated data mining firm Cambridge Analytica scooped up data on millions of Americans without their knowledge. "It will take some time to work through all of the changes we need to make, but I'm committed to getting it right".

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.

Facebook Inc Chief Executive Mark Zuckerberg started a second day of testimony on Capitol Hill on Wednesday, facing more questions from lawmakers about data privacy at the world's largest social media network.

Zuckerberg confirmed that his company is cooperating with special counsel Robert Mueller in his investigation into Russian meddling in the 2016 U.S. presidential election.

During his questioning, Zuckerberg agreed with Terri, saying, "It is clear now that we didn't do enough to prevent these tools from being used for harm, as well, and that goes for fake news, foreign interference, and hate speech as well as developers and data privacy".

Zuckerberg said he had personally not been contacted, and that he was not specifically aware of any subpoena of Facebook data.

Syria 'chemical attack': what we know

CA insists it deleted the data harvested by Professor Aleksandr Kogan's personality quiz app as soon as it was informed it breached Facebook's terms of use. It speaks to the responsibility that Facebook has historically felt regarding policing content on its platform - or, more accurately, the lack thereof.

"In retrospect it was clearly a mistake to believe them", he said. It also means that anyone who exchanged messages with those 1,500 people was affected, thereby increasing the actual number of affected users. We made a mistake by not doing so.

Later, he talked about upcoming elections in India and Pakistan.

Zuckerberg said he understands the concerns, especially because "Facebook and tech industry is located in Silicon Valley, which is an extremely left-leaning place". During this long-awaited appearance, Zuckerberg was interrogated by as many as 44 USA senators about concerns over data privacy policies followed by the social networking website.

Zuckerberg walked a fine line showing that he was open to regulations, but nothing that would fundamentally blow apart Facebook's business model.

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