"Those questions have included whether Facebook can track users' browsing activity even after the user has logged off of Facebook, whether Facebook can track your activity across devices even when you are not logged into Facebook", she listed.

"I started Facebook, I run it, and I'm responsible for what happens here", Zuckerberg said in his prepared remarks.

But senators showed no sign of doing anything as useful as that, so Zuck's net worth has soared.

Unless Zuckerberg himself took the infamous "thisisyourdigitallife" quiz, which we find to be unlikely, the CEO is probably Facebook friends with someone who did take the quiz. I mean, has there been a dramatic falloff of the number of people that utilize Facebook because of these concerns?

After a pause, and some laughter from himself and the room, Mr Zuckerberg said: "No".

Separately, the company also began alerting users that their data was gathered by Cambridge Analytica.


He insisted Facebook would do a better job of identifying fake accounts that "spread misinformation".

Mark Zuckerberg's been giving evidence to American politicians after as many as 87m users of the social network had their data harvested by Cambridge Analytica, a firm working on the Trump 2016 election campaign.

Social media users were quick to notice something slightly unusual on the Facebook CEO's chair.

"We've updated our policy to make sure we don't make that mistake again". "And when we address these challenges, I know we'll look back and view helping people connect and giving more people a voice as a positive force in the world". Over the weekend, Facebook kicked two more companies, CubeYou and AggregateIQ, off the platform for misusing data. In Myanmar, human rights groups say Facebook has been too slow to take down hateful posts about Rohingya Muslims.
