Zuckerberg endures tough questioning over data

Mark Zuckerberg has denied that Russian Federation and China have been secretly collecting its users' data. "In fact he is 5'7" and, as he appeared before Congress in Washington this week, he used a booster cushion to appear tall on television. Zuckerberg said Facebook had been led to believe Cambridge Analytica had deleted the user data it had harvested and that had been "clearly a mistake".

They have convinced us all, politicians especially, that they are bigger than they really are: too big for nation states to handle, too complex to understand, .

"I wasn't gonna quit Facebook, until I saw this s-".

Green also asked specifically about GDPR requirements to make requests for user content clear, concise and understandable and how Facebook would implement that in the US.

Throughout the hearings, Zuckerberg repeatedly sought to dispel the notion that Facebook sells user data.

Zuckerberg stiffly defended Facebook's use of the data and postings of the 2.2 billion users of its free platform in order to attract the ad revenue that the $480 billion company depends on. Zuckerberg said that every users' Facebook app will feature a tool at the top of the page that will walk them through settings and ask them to make decisions about what settings they want to implement.

Amid rising calls for legislation to better protect the data that social media and other internet companies siphon off from users, Zuckerberg said he accepted that legal restrictions of some sort were in the cards - while adding a word of caution.

When my colleague Sara Ashley O'Brien downloaded her 14-year Facebook history, she found that Facebook had access to a litany of details from her past, including the phone number of her late grandmother, who never used Facebook, and conversations with an ex whom she had unfriended. Among other things, he promised a review of all the developers who work with Facebook.

Alibaba Group Holding Limited (NYSE:BABA)
It dived, as 9 investors sold EFSC shares while 59 reduced holdings. 59 funds opened positions while 190 raised stakes. On Monday, November 13 the stock of Alibaba Group Holding Limited (NYSE: BABA ) has "Buy" rating given by Wells Fargo.

Mr Zuckerberg replied: "Respectfully I disagree with that characterisation".

"This is still very much an uphill battle for privacy reforms", said Alvaro Bedoya, who directs Georgetown University's Center on Privacy and Technology.

Zuckerberg clarified on multiple occasions that the company doesn't sell users' data. "All the same controls will be available around the world", Zuckerberg said.

Mr Zuckerberg frequently admitted to making mistakes, including not informing users as soon as they knew about the data breach.

Barton had asked about what data Facebook shares with third parties about people under the age of 18.

Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg told lawmakers Wednesday that his own personal data was included in that of 87 million or so Facebook users that was improperly shared with political consultancy Cambridge Analytica.

Zuckerberg said the European standard, General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), to come into effect on May 25, was more stringent than what was now in place at Facebook and suggested it could serve as a rough model for USA rules in the future. They warned a suit-clad Zuckerberg that tough regulation and scrutiny might follow if Facebook failed once again to improve its business practices. Sorry, conspiracy theorists, but Zuckerberg shut this one down once and for all.

Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg is surrounded by members of the media as he arrives to testify before a Senate Judiciary and Commerce Committees joint hearing regarding the company's use and protection of user data, on Capitol Hill in Washington, U.S., April 10, 2018.
