How to watch Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg testify before the Senate today

Facebook alerts

During the blockbuster hearing on Capitol Hill, Sen. And at the moment when the country needed a smart conversation about privacy, what it got was meandering questions and misfires. Zuckerberg said he understands those concerns, especially because "Facebook and tech industry is located in Silicon Valley, which is an extremely left-leaning place". Several questions displayed an ignorance about the very basics of the platform and its business model.

Zuckerberg: "Um. we sell ads".

On Monday, Facebook began alerting people who had their data accessed two and half years after the incursion. "I started Facebook, I run it, and I'm responsible for what happens here". I actually am not aware of a subpoena.

Absolutely, Zuckerberg responded, saying later in an exchange with Sen. John Thune of South Dakota said Zuckerberg's company had a 14-year history of apologizing for "ill-advised decisions" related to user privacy. We're committed to getting this done in time for the critical months before the 2018 elections.

"You don't know?" Wicker asked, incredulously. She was particularly concerned on how Facebook values trust and why the social media firm wasn't transparent enough to loyal users.

Zuckerberg: "Um. sure. You just delete your account".

Zuckerberg said "there will always be a version of Facebook that is free" and "we don't offer an option today for people to pay to not show ads".

The senators' questions also lacked focus.

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. "You sign up for Facebook, you get the ability to share the information that you want with people", he explained.

Summary of Microsoft Corporation (NASDAQ:MSFT) Ratings
Moreover, Fairfield Bush And has 4.77% invested in Microsoft Corporation (NASDAQ: MSFT ). 1,781 are held by Focused Wealth Mngmt. Bristol Advisors LLC's holdings in Microsoft were worth $2,712,000 at the end of the most recent reporting period.

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

And anyone hoping that the Big Z is about to depart Facebook is in for a disappointment - Zuck had a pre-prepared section in case anyone suggested he should resign. In retrospect, that was clearly a mistake.

Some Senators were not convinced by Zuckerberg's mea culpa. What a commitment to data privacy Facebook's showing these days!

In the testimony, Zuckerberg acknowledges that the questioning will likely be hostile.

But there was no real challenge.

"We believe that we're going to be investigating many apps - tens of thousands of apps", Zuckerberg said without citing specific examples.

"I think the internet is becoming increasingly important in people's lives and I think we need to have a full conversation about what is the right regulation", he told the hearing. It was. Was it open to regulation? Yes.

While Zuckerberg will not be under oath, he will still be required to answer truthfully, as lying to Congress is a federal crime. "We have made a lot of mistakes in running the company".
