But for many lawmakers, Zuckerberg's carefully worded answers fell short of addressing the platform's security settings and the increasing concerns about making privacy a priority.

The social network replies, "No. Facebook is a free site and will never require that you pay to continue using the site".

"The Cambridge Analytica scandal has simply exposed in a dramatic way what many people have been pointing out for many years - that this is Facebook's business model". "The problem is if my friend uses that app and has my contact info, she's consented and I haven't, but Facebook still has my information", she said. They recently received a letter from Facebook explaining that their videos were "unsafe to the community".
