After Facebook hearings, users want to know

Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg testifies before the Senate

MARK ZUCKERBERG: Congressman, in general, we collect data from people who have not signed up for Facebook for security purposes.

Day One saw Mark field questions from senators on advertising, data privacy, Cambridge Analytica, combatting election interference, and more - Day Two saw fresh questions being raised about Facebook's data collection policies, the regulation of social media, as well as information about Facebook's "counterterrorism team". And many of them were curious as to how quickly Facebook would be able to complete the crucial work of understanding the extent of its personal-data liabilities. Facebook should've acted more decisively when the Cambridge Analytica saga began to unfold - instead, it was surprisingly slow to pick up on what actually happened. He gave no further details.

That's because Zuckerberg doesn't view Facebook as a social media company. "And people have the ability to see everything that they have in Facebook, to take that out, delete their account and move their data anywhere that they want", he said. Various news outlets, from CNN to The New York Times to BuzzFeed, have published reports highlighting just how much data Facebook has on its users. Greg Walden (R-OR) was concerned there are "critical, unanswered questions surrounding Facebook's business model and the entire digital ecosystem regarding online privacy and consumer protection".

Democratic Representative Debbie Dingell expressed frustration with Zuckerberg's frequent promises to get back to lawmakers later in writing. Buschon explained that he and his mother had a conversation about her deceased brother and later on Facebook, his mother saw a memorial photo collage of her brother come up. If individuals truly want to protect themselves from data mining, they need to start with their own profiles and restrict the amount of personal info they broadcast to the public by checking their privacy settings - yes, they've likely changed since the last time you looked.

Champions League: Ronaldo shatters Juventus comeback to send Real through
It was the first time Madrid was down 3-0 in the Champions League since losing 4-0 at Liverpool in the round of 16 in 2008-09. Buffon rushed toward Oliver immediately after the call and quickly got into his face to complain, prompting the red card.

Everyone around the world deserves good privacy controls, he said. According to the notes, Zuckerberg should deflect by saying that Apple never notified users despite stories of apps misusing Apple data.

Facebook has regularly been accused of listening in on conversations using microphones on smartphones and then presenting ads related to recent conversations to its users.

"Over 10 and 20 years, Amazon, Facebook, these kinds of stocks are going to continue to do extremely well", said the wealth management executive, who advises clients with over $100 million in assets.

NY Times tech lead Brian X. Chen reported that Facebook holds a surprising amount of data even on people who use the service very sparingly, using his own downloaded data as an example.

Mark Zuckerberg in Congress
Zuckerberg, 33, is also due to appear before joint Senate committees on April 10, in his first congressional appearance. Then came questions about Russian meddling, and reports that Russians targeted Facebook users with political ads.

The social network has confirmed 87 million users' personal data were scraped and used by UK-based political data company, Cambridge Analytica.

"The culture has always been focused on driving usage, on getting more people to use and how to get them to spend longer on the platform", he said.

Michigan Democrat, Debbie Dingell asked how many "like" buttons are there in non-Facebook pages?Zuckerberg responded: I don't know the answer to that.Dingell continues, How many "share" buttons are there in non-Facebook pages?

Earlier in the day, Zuckerberg said he believes it is "inevitable" that there will be regulation of his industry.
