For the first time ever, Facebook's founder and CEO, billionaire Mark Zuckerberg, appeared before Congress for two days of hearings.

The challenge now is what to do about it.

This week, members of Congress grilled Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg about a data privacy scandal where millions of Facebook users data were compromised by a political consultant firm. For Zuckerberg to claim that he has never heard the term is questionable but possible. These remarks were officially released by The House Energy and Commerce Committy on Monday.

Don't use any Facebook apps, like Mafia Wars. Zuckerberg agreed that some regulation is probably needed, but was short on details when asked for ideas.

Next up, the Knights will play the victor of the San Jose-Anaheim series, which the Sharks lead 3-0. "We can definitely do it". The Kings were reeling from Neal's goal when Karlsson converted Reilly Smith's pass from the corner with a one-timer.

Pal Steigan: The whole Russia-gate thing is an invention of the Democratic National Congress and the Democratic Party, they have since lost the need for explanation on this and Russian Federation comes very handy because it has this Cold War atmosphere in the United States and you can blame Russian Federation for nearly anything and it goes in the big media and the big media, mainstream media is cooperating on this, so I think it's just another expression of this.

He described the CEO's congressional hearings last week as "a pretty strong mea culpa in terms of things they could have done better", adding that he did "quite a good job" under questioning from U.S. lawmakers.

Zuckerberg could be facing even more questions from the European Union. We all use Facebook.

Facebook disables apps from accessing your data that you haven't used in a while. These restrictions will severely limit what data can be collected as well as how long it can be retained.

Which is to say, think of Schumer or rom-coms or rom-coms starring Schumer what you will, it's a pretty human film. There are elements of body swap farces like Vice Versa and Like Father Like Son as she gets used to her new look.

The wholesale, planet-wide exploitation of personal data has dark implications, Tufekci said: "We could enter into a phase of "surveillance authoritarianism, ' where we don't face (George Orwell's) '1984" model, where there's open totalitarianism, where we're dragged off in the middle of the night".

The hearings covered a wide range of topics, but the most pointed exchanges focused on Facebook's recently admitted failure to protect user data. Others openly criticized Zuckerberg's public apologies as nearly insincere given similar apologies he has offered after previous mistakes managing his growing company. It calculated the maximum number of friends that users could have had while the personality quiz app built by Cambridge Analytica was collecting data. Simply got to the Settings menu and select Privacy options.

Facebook uses "all of the data that's in the user's personal profile", including public and private posts, photos, videos, likes, contacts and even messages, according to Rodgers.

The Tennessee lawmaker cited laws that govern health data, financial transactions, and other industries, before citing her bill that would require tech companies to obtain user permission before they can collect and sell user data.

There are, however, other companies too that offer these types of services and get information from the apps and sites that use them. "And, do you think that you have an ethical obligation to notify 87 million Facebook users?"
