Facebook to examine tens of thousands of apps for data misuse

US Congresional hearing

Senators question Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg

The duo appeared on Infowars today while Zuckerberg was facing his second day of congressional hearings, with host Owen Shroyer introducing them by comparing their Facebook woes to things completely unrelated to Facebook and reiterating Infowars' claims that last weekend's gas attack in Syria was a "false narrative". Long revealed a picture of conservative commentators "Diamond and Silk", who were recently told by Facebook their content is "unsafe", and asked Zuckerberg if he knew who they were. This is clearly an extremely expensive, high-tech android that looks exactly like him, can move and talk, and is standing trial for him because he can't be arsed explaining why he stole everyone's data.

Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg testified on Capitol Hill Tuesday about allegedly selling his customers' private information to outside companies.

"When we learned in 2015 that Cambridge Analytica had bought data from an app developer on Facebook that people had shared it with, we did take action", said Zuckerberg.

Recently, the Facebook page connected to Diamond and Silk had been marked "unsafe to the community". If so, Facebook could be subject to hefty fines.

Mark Zuckerberg speaks on stage during the annual Facebook F8 developers conference in San Jose, Calif., April 18, 2017. This data was scooped up when some 270,000 users took a personality quiz.

"No, there's nothing to apologize for", Kennedy replied.

LUJÁN: So the average for non-Facebook platforms is 1,500.

The data company allegedly helped political candidates to win elections with targeted digital ads.

As for the federal Russia probe that has occupied much of Washington's attention for months, he said he had not been interviewed by special counsel Mueller's team, but "I know we're working with them".

Butterfield asked Zuckerberg to convene a meeting of CEOs to "develop a strategy to increase racial diversity in the technology industry" and to provide transparency into retention numbers.

Zuckerberg described it as "a prank website that I launched in college in my dorm room before I started Facebook".

According to the AP, "Facebook says more than 70 million of the affected users are in the U.S., though there are over a million each in the Philippines, Indonesia and the U.K". "There is absolutely no directive ... to have a bias in anything that we do".

"How can consumers have control over their data when Facebook does not have control over the data?" asked Representative Frank Pallone of New Jersey, the ranking Democrat on the Energy and Commerce committee, at the beginning of the hearing.

Shares in Facebook posted their biggest daily gain in nearly two years on Tuesday, closing up 4.5 percent. It's unclear, however, how many of those apps are also owned by Facebook.

Based on Facebook's privacy and data collection policies, Facebook first receives your photo, caption, and tagged people.
