Facebook CEO didn't have all the answers for Congress

Zuckerberg on sharing his personal info ‘Um uh Facebook CEO didn't have all the answers for Congress
Ben Pena | 15 April, 2018, 02:55

Zuckerberg said it would take "many months" to complete an audit of other apps that might also have improperly gathered or shared users' data.

Facebook does say it expects its expenses to rise as it brings on more employees to deal with security issues and content moderation, and more costs will come with regulation in the US, the prospect of which Zuckerberg has welcomed.

While Congress lawmakers have yet to come to a unified decision on the best way to proceed, the revelations have sparked intense debates over the future of the technology industry and a potential crackdown on its regulation. In that respect, Facebook achieves its goal of connecting people, Milanesi said.

Even though Zuckerberg only reported a $1 salary previous year, he owns a fair amount of shares in Facebook. This will be available at the top of the news feed when you log in to the Facebook app. Thirty-six percent said they are very concerned about it and another 41% saying they are somewhat concerned. At the bottom of the notification, in fine print, read: "A small number of people who logged into This Is Your Digital Life also shared their own news feed, timeline, posts and messages, which may have included posts and messages from you".

Senate Gary Peters asked Mr Zuckerberg the direct question of "Yes or no, does Facebook use audio obtained from mobile devices to enrich personal information about users?"

But in a 2005 deposition that Mesereau showed her, Constand said she'd told her mother that she was affectionate toward him. Mesereau had series of questions over Dickinson's civil litigation aimed at Cosby, including a pending defamation lawsuit.

The committee members also expressed concerns about the company's targetted ad system and how it profited itself from users' personal data.

"It is inevitable that there will need to be some regulation" of internet firms, Zuckerberg said, but he avoided any specifics.

All of this hullabaloo over Facebook sharing info had me thinking back to simpler times on Facebook. Their mission is to make money out of connecting people. It's also risky because people don't know how they have been profiled-or whether their profile is biased, wrong, or otherwise unfair. In yet another announcement on 9 April, the social media network said it was tweaking what it calls "data practices" as well as information that third-party apps on Facebook can access.

Are people really quitting Facebook over the Cambridge Analytica scandal? "A lot of that depends on you". "It's a tough situation to ask people to withdraw from Facebook, so instead of that people want some kind of action".

In that hearing, Zuckerberg apologized several times for Facebook failures and disclosed that his company was "working with" special counsel Robert Mueller in the federal probe of Russian election interference. "That's not how advertising works, and I do think we could probably be doing a clearer job explaining that, given the misperceptions that are out there", he said in response to a question.
