Do You Trust Facebook?

'The Five' Praises Zuckerberg, Skewers 'Idiots' in Congress

Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg survived his second day of questioning on Capitol Hill - yesterday two Senate committees, today the House Energy and Commerce Committee.

The survey research was conducted on 10,000 respondents across 10 nations in January and February, prior to recent revelations that the British data firm Cambridge Analytica had improperly harvested personal data from up to 87 million Facebook users to create targeted political ads.

- Do you think Facebook and other social media platforms should be regulated by the United States government?

Facebook chief Mark Zuckerberg says he accepts responsibility for the social network's failure to tell its users who has viewed their profile, according to testimony released on Monday on the eve of his first Congressional appearance. If an app or website appears on this list, it can receive the only information you have consented to share with them.

- Should Facebook be more proactive in protecting its users' data?

Democrat Bobby Rush was in the process of asking Mr Zuckerberg when he learned that Facebook allowed advertisers prevent ads from being shown to certain minority groups, a possible violation of civil rights laws.

If you messaged anybody this week, would you share with us the names of the people you've messaged? He also promised that Facebook will provide information about how many developers outside Facebook have audited the data.

"I can't let you filibuster right now", Republican Marsha Blackburn said at one point.

Remember that all of these "connections" are known by Facebook and owned by Facebook.

Zuckerberg: Congressman, I do not know off the top of my head but I can have our team get back to you afterward.

Sen. Lindsey Graham pitched a rare hardball question to Zuckerberg Tuesday: Is Facebook a monopoly?

Experts say Facebook has made it technically untenable to take your data elsewhere. Soon users began examining what else Facebook could use if given permission by the user.

Have you deleted your Facebook account in the wake of the Cambridge Analytica scandal? He did argue, however, that "the average American uses eight different apps to communicate with their friends and stay in touch with people", including Twitter.

ZUCKERBERG: "There may be specific things about how you use Facebook, even if you're not logged in, that we - that we keep track of, to make sure that people aren't abusing the systems". Orrin Hatch, a senator from Utah, even asked Zuckerberg how Facebook's business model works given that it is free.

"We acknowledge the communications of your global and regional representatives made directly to our office", the Philippines National Privacy Commission said in a letter addressed to Zuckerberg dated April 11.

Some legislators are now also wondering if Facebook's third-party app data policies violate a 2011 agreement with the Federal Trade Commission.
