Zuckerberg faces tougher questions at House hearing

The hearings came almost a month after news broke that Cambridge Analytica, a data firm with ties to President Donald Trump's campaign, accessed information from as many as 87 million Facebook users without their knowledge. The Silicon Valley giant's stock has dropped almost 11 percent since news broke of the Cambridge Analytica data leak. He said he was among the almost 87 million people whose personal information was improperly shared with political consultancy Cambridge Analytica.

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.

He also said he was not familiar with what various media reports call "shadow profiles", collections of data assembled on Facebook users that they have no knowledge of or control over.

How much data does Facebook collect on users - and non-users? A NEWS CENTER Maine viewer reached out to us (on Facebook) saying she's been getting chain messages on Messenger. And then what that shows, I think that shows the failure of regulation in this area.

Facebook hosted a privacy summit while Mark Zuckerberg was in Washington.

Whether some of the anonymous group pages now on Facebook were created by Russian agents.

Republican congressman Fred Upton cited an example of a Michigan Republican whose campaign page was removed from Facebook.

He was asked whether Facebook was a monopoly.

"We have communicated directly with Diamond and Silk about this issue". About one in three lawmakers got that response over the two days.

This could very well explain why it is so hard for lawmakers to pin down Zuckerberg.

Zuckerberg later said Facemash and the website that billions of people use today have no relation.

TBI: Father confesses to killing 5-year-old boy
As the search continued to unfold, the community rallied and volunteers prayed the blonde-haird, blue-eyed boy would be found. TBI said its agents opened a criminal investigation on Friday at the request of District Attorney General Ray Crouch.

Larry Buschon, a Republican from IN, brought up a concern about Facebook listening IN on people's conversations.

The flip side to all this is that anyone who owns shares in Facebook should be happy too, as they've gotten slightly richer also.

"I think he's sorry he has to testify in front of Congress", Kelly said.

Asked if his employees had been interviewed, he again responded yes but added: "I have not", CNN reported. Zuckerberg fell back on the security reasoning, stating "We need to know when somebody is trying to repeatedly access our services".

Zuckerberg replied "yes" when asked if his personal data was included in the information sold to the "malicious third parties" by the lawmakers during a testimony before the House Energy and Commerce Committee yesterday.

The company has always denied these allegations.

Zuckerberg also made clear that keeping Facebook free for users means sticking to an ad-based model. A number of the Russian ads were on Facebook.

"We're not going to share people's information except for with the people that they've asked for it to be shared".

The company does this by using different techniques integrated into pages around the web.

"You have said everyone controls their data, but you are collecting data on people that are not even Facebook users, who have never signed a consent, a privacy agreement", Mr Lujan said.
