'Um, uh, no': Zuckerberg not keen to reveal own personal info

US Defense Secretary James Mattis Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Gen. Joseph Dunford and Pentagon Comptroller David Norquist testify before the House Armed Services Committee in the Rayburn House Office Building on Capitol Hill

That was Zuckerberg's answer to many questions about what kind of regulation of legislation Facebook would support to beef up Americans' privacy in their use of social media platforms.

"This deserves a lot of discussion", he said about a privacy bill of rights for children.

Sen Durbin said: "I think that maybe is what this is about". But he hedged on the details of that cooperation.

Zuckerberg said that the ad-free product does not exist as of yet, but the only way for Facebook to remain a viable business was to run advertisements or charge for use of the site.

Zuckerberg said Facebook was hiring dozens more Burmese-language speakers to remove threatening content.

Facebook can't say for sure how many people may have been swept up in the data breach scandal in part because people's social networks may have changed since the company made changes to privacy settings for third-party apps in 2014 and banned the quiz app itself in 2015. "I'm aware that there may be, but we are working with them". "Your right to privacy, the limits of your right to privacy, and how much you give away in modern America in the name of quote "connecting people around the world".

Senator Lindsey Graham from SC asked Zuckerberg to name his company's biggest competitor.

In a reply to a follow-up question from Durbin, Zuckerberg also said he will not like to reveal who he texted with last week.


Controlling hate speech in social media has been a major concern of Jewish groups in recent years, chief among them the Anti-Defamation League, which has lobbied Facebook, Twitter, Google and others to build defenses against its proliferation.

Zuckerberg is set to publicly apologize to Congress after revelations that Cambridge Analytica, a data-mining firm affiliated with Donald Trump's presidential campaign, gathered personal information from 87 million users to try to influence the election.

Zuckerberg said he "believes in [Kennedy's stated] principles" and added that he does not want people's private information to be used in an untoward manner.

In fact, Facebook went on record back in 2016 to state - full stop - that it does not use your phone's microphone to inform ads or News Feed stories.

Facebook yesterday began notifying millions of users targeted through a personality quiz app that their personal data had been compromised. "Your user agreement sucks".

At the hearing, Zuckerberg said, "We didn't take a broad enough view of our responsibility, and that was a big mistake".

Sen Blumenthal asked: "Has anyone been fired from that app review team?"
