It seems, in fact, that the company is counting on users themselves having a similarly lackluster understanding, and at the end of the day not really caring about Facebook's privacy blunders. For those of us who have been paying attention to Facebook and its litany of scandals over the past few months, Zuck's testimony in front of committees from the Senate and a (distinctly more lucid) one from the House told us nothing new.

"Platforms like Facebook have overwhelming incentives to extract the maximum amount of value and data out of us", Hartzog said.

Facebook said 87 million users around the world were impacted by the data scandal, far higher than initial estimates. "We didn't take a broad enough view of our responsibility, and that was a big mistake". There were dozens of unanswered or follow-up questions that the executive promised his team would respond to later, and some of his talking points aren't likely to hold up to future analysis. "Does Facebook use audio obtained from mobile devices to enrich personal information about users?" That line nearly worked, until Reps. He had never heard of the widely used term "shadow profiles" to describe this kind of data collection.

Zuckerberg said user ownership of content is fundamental to the website.

The case sparked further outrage after her father died on Monday of injuries reportedly sustained while in police custody. Since the murder charge was added later by the police, it does not reflect in the central probe agency's FIR.

Zuckerberg: I do not know off the top of my head.

On Wednesday morning, before Mr Zuckerberg's remarks, I visited the Cambridge Psychometrics Centre and found some acknowledgement of the harm caused to the university's reputation.

"I could use that information in order to send them ads suggesting that they could vote online - something that happened in the US presidential election - in order to discourage those people from actually going to a polling place and casting a ballot".

Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., pressed Zuckerberg on Facebooks market power. All the same, the level of questioning suggests that those in Congress lack in some cases even a basic understanding of how Facebook - or online services more broadly - work. He also didn't say how many of those eight might be Facebook's popular subsidiary apps, which include Instagram, Messenger and WhatsApp.

National Privacy Commission will look into how Facebook shares the personal data of Filipino users with unauthorized third parties.

While Zuckerberg said he couldn't comment on why the duo's content had been flagged, the pair have become a favorite among Trump and his supporters because they regularly take aim at the president's critics (by attacking things like the Black Lives Matter movement, the Obamas, and immigration reform), while endorsing his policies - even those that cause harm to communities of color.

"We don't know what we need to protect ourselves from", she told The Current's Anna Maria Tremonti. Congress is unlikely to get it done during this session.

The expected invitation comes a day after Zuckerberg testified for roughly 10 hours in front of two panels of USA lawmakers about Cambridge Analytica, a data analysis firm that had improperly accessed names, "likes" and other personal information about roughly 87 million users.
