Zuckerberg apologizes for Facebook data leak

US-INTERNET-FACEBOOK-DEMONSTRATION

The Facebook CEO stated that his business is now complying with a full audit of its records, after it was reported earlier in the year that Cambridge Analytica still had access to its harvested data.

He also revealed that the U.S. is in an "arms race" with Russian Federation over election tampering and accepted that Facebook had not been fully prepared for the unorthodox methods that Russian Federation had used.

After yesterday's seemingly endless marathon hearing before the Senate Judiciary Committee and the Senate Commerce, Science, and Transportation Committee, today Mark Zuckerberg heads to the House, where he'll be answering questions in front of the Energy and Commerce Committee.

"Those questions have included whether Facebook can track users' browsing activity even after the user has logged off of Facebook, whether Facebook can track your activity across devices even when you are not logged into Facebook", she listed.

To that end, a Huff Post editor thought perhaps there could be an alternative set of people to grill the Facebook CEO.

Here are some of the quotes from Mr Zuckerberg, and some of the dozens of senators who grilled him.

"We didn't take a broad enough view of our responsibility, and that was a big mistake", said Zuckerberg, stating the obvious. And it was my mistake, and I'm sorry.

Third top national security aide to leave White House
President Donald Trump's homeland security advisor Thomas Bossert resigned Tuesday at the most current WhiteHouse shake up. Recently, Trump's national security spokesperson Michael Anton quit the White House to return to writing and academics.

"I don't want to vote to have to regulate Facebook, but by God, I will", Republican Senator John Kennedy told Zuckerberg on Tuesday. "2018 is an important year for the whole world". How do we deal with the next step?

Did Facebook allow the harvesting and sale of user data without their consent? Cambridge Analytica is one example of how a malicious actor used Facebook's third-party data consent to sweep up tens of millions of records, but experts agree that it's not going to be the only case that comes to light. "While there is no maximum high impact, bug reports have garnered as much as $40,000 for people who bring them to our attention", Greene said. I'm committed to getting this right.

Separately, the company also began alerting users that their data was gathered by Cambridge Analytica.

"But we were slow at identifying the type of new information operations".

In typical Facebook fashion, there's no simple button you can click to see if your data was stolen.

He also said the company was in an "arms race" with Russian Federation, warning there were people in the country tasked with finding ways to breach Facebook's systems. "I will do everything I can to make Facebook a place where everyone can stay closer with the people they care about, and to make sure it's a positive force in the world". 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".
