Fake accounts can spread false information during elections in Pakistan: Zuckerberg

11 Avril 2018

The scandal: A whistleblower revealed in March that his former employer, Cambridge Analytica, gained access to the personal data of millions of Facebook users without their knowledge.

Dozens of protesters gathered outside Congress before the hearing wearing Zuckerberg masks and #DeleteFacebook T-shirts.

We didn't take a broad enough view of what our responsibility is and that was a huge mistake.

"Yes", Zuckerberg answered. "In retrospect, I think that was a mistake".

Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg, who has been in the eye of the storm ever since revelations of the company flouted data privacy rules, gave a testimony before a United States Congressional Committee on April 10.

There is an online propaganda "arms race" with Russian Federation and the most important thing right now is to make sure no one interferes in the upcoming elections globally, vowed Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg during the five-hour marathon session at the US Congress.

Senator Richard Blumenthal showed the terms of service that Mr Kogan provided on a large placard and said: Facebook was on notice that he could sell that information.

While on the site, Facebook also offers an option for users to review and update the information that they share with apps and websites.

The Facebook CEO stated that his business is now complying with a full audit of its records, after it was reported earlier in the year that Cambridge Analytica still had access to its harvested data.

"I believe there may be (a subpoena), but I know we're working with them", he said.

Additionally, those potentially impacted by CA will also see the alert that will take them to see what data might have been shared. "We have to make sure people aren't using it to harm people or spread disinformation", Zuckerberg told senators.

Head of product security Collin Greene published Tuesday a post on Facebook's newsroom that details the company's new Data Abuse Bounty program.

Zuckerberg: I'm a natural human, I'm a natural human.

Zuckerberg met Monday with Florida Sen.

Democrats like Nelson have argued that federal laws might be necessary to ensure user privacy.

He was testifying before the Senators and House panel in a joint hearing.

The 33-year-old founder said last month he would testify before Congress, however, he turned down an invitation by British lawmakers to explain to a parliamentary committee about the privacy fiasco.

He also said the company was in an "arms race" with Russian Federation, warning there were people in the country tasked with finding ways to breach Facebook's systems.

About investigation of data breaches in the future, Zuckerberg said that every one of their apps is under constant monitoring so situations like the one involving Cambridge Analytica doesn't keep occurring again.
