Facebook's Zuckerberg unscathed by congressional grilling, stock rises

In addition, all 2.2 billion Facebook users will receive a notice section titled "Protecting Your Information" with a link to see what apps they're using and what information the users have shared with those apps. Foreign interference in our elections, terrorism, self-harm, Zuckerberg said. Mark Zuckerberg's hearing will continue on Tuesday and we will bring you the updates.

"If you've messaged anybody this week would you share with us the names of the people you've messaged?" the Illinois Democrat asked. I started Facebook and I run it.

He also said he was not familiar with what various media reports call "shadow profiles", collections of data assembled on Facebook users that they have no knowledge of or control over. Facebook says most of the affected users (more than 70 million) are in the USA, though there are over a million each in the Philippines, Indonesia and the United Kingdom. But ever since last month when it was revealed that Cambridge Analytica had not deleted the data, Facebook has been in action mode - running audits, looking at how to take stock of how things stand, and prevent something like this from happening again.

Throughout Trump's candidacy and tenure in the White House, Hardaway and Richardson, who are both black, have defended his rhetoric on race and immigration, among other policies and platforms.

Facebook chief executive Mark Zuckerberg faced questions from the 54-member House Energy and Commerce Committee on Wednesday less than 24 hours after appearing before the Senate's Commerce and Judiciary committees. The senator began with confrontational statements about Facebook's "pattern of lax data practices" and asked Zuckerberg why Facebook hadn't informed users about the breach when it happened.

Cambridge Analytica insists it deleted the harvested data as soon as it was informed it breached Facebook's terms of use. He seemed to achieve a measure of success: Facebook shares surged 4.5 per cent for the day, the biggest gain in two years. As Hawaii senator Brian Schatz put it, "Everybody kind of understands that when you click like on something, or if you say you like a certain movie or have a particular political proclivity, I think that's fair game".

Did Facebook allow the harvesting and sale of user data without their consent?

Turning off those categories is a chore, as you have to select them one by one in settings.

At a different point in the hearing, he said: "In general, we collect data of people who have not signed up for Facebook for security purposes". Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., asked Zuckerberg if he would be willing to work with lawmakers to examine what "regulations you think are necessary in your industry".

Facial expressions and body movements, whether we make them knowingly or not, can persuade people.

Many also came to his defence.

"The only way we're going to close this trust gap is through legislation that creates and empowers a sufficiently resourced expert oversight agency, with rulemaking authority to protect the digital privacy and ensure that companies protect our users' data.".
