Facebook Chief Executive Mark Zuckerberg navigated through the first of two USA congressional hearings without making any further promises to support new legislation or change how the social network does business.
Senator Graham showing Facebook's entire ToSThe first of the two Congressional hearings started today, with multiple Senators each getting five minutes to question Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg over the company's data policies.
Zuckerberg didn't elaborate more than that during the exchange with Eshoo, including how much of his personal data CA obtained.
And "if you've messaged anybody this week would you share with us the names of the people you've messaged?" the Illinois Democrat persisted.
On Tuesday afternoon, Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg sat in the hot seat while Sen. Facebook did so, however, "based on false information", he argued, referring to Cambridge's pledge that data had been deleted, and admitted it was the wrong move.
Zuckerberg told Democratic Senator Patrick Leahy that Facebook personnel had been interviewed by the office of special counsel Robert Mueller about potential Russian interference in the 2016 presidential elections, though he wasn't interviewed personally.
Orrin Hatch, R-Utah, before returning to his seat to continue testifying before a joint hearing of the Commerce and Judiciary Committees on Capitol Hill in Washington, Tuesday, April 10, 2018, about the use of Facebook data to target American voters in the 2016 election.
Despite Zuckerberg reiterating that Facebook later reduced the amount of data developers could collect, some lawmakers still expressed concern that once any data leaves Facebook's systems, the company has no idea how it's used.
"Facebook does not use your phone's microphone to inform ads or to change what you see in News Feed".
In a way, Zuckerberg is not ruling out that in future that there can be no premium version Facebook. Zuckerberg was allowed to waste significant time recounting the plot of the Social Network to a shrinking audience, as senators who'd gotten their at-bats left the hearing room.
"Senator, I want to make sure I get this accurate so it would probably be better to have my team follow up afterwards", he replied.
"Are you aware of any ad or page that has been taken down from Planned Parenthood?"
Social media users also livened up the slow Senate committee hearing with references to the movie about Facebook, The Social Network, starring Jesse Eisenberg.
"That is a specific personnel matter that seems like it would be inappropriate to speak to here", said Zuckerberg.
Rep. Raul Ruiz of California explained that Facebook's recent crises, despite the company operating under an FTC decree, may mean that the federal government should create a regulatory body that oversees how consumer data is collected and used. "Everybody is out there mining tons of data and, in theory, we would all like to belive that they're behaving well". But he wants to be the one to decide just how far to go in protecting our data. "If Facebook and other online companies will not or can not stop the privacy invasions, then we are going to have to - we, the Congress".
