Senator Bill Nelson: "Let me just cut to the chase".
Facebook Chief Executive Officer Mark Zuckerberg on Tuesday publicly apologised for failing to protect the personal information of millions of users. Facebook has been reeling from its worst-ever privacy failure following revelations last month that the political data-mining firm Cambridge Analytica, which was affiliated with Trump's 2016 campaign, improperly scooped up data on some 87 million users.
His opening statement closely mirrored prepared remarks that circulated Monday.
"The biggest thing that I think we can do is implement it, and we are doing that", Zuckerberg said. It took yet another stab at explaining what happens to user data on its service and rejiggered its confusing privacy controls for the seventh time in a decade.
"It's right there, it is across the street", she said. He 's scheduled to appear on Wednesday before the house energy & commerce committee. But they will make it a lot harder for anyone to do what the Russians did during the 2016 election and use fake accounts and pages to run ads.
Facebook plans to reveal all the third-party apps that have authorization to access user data, the company said.
"We don't want to overregulate where we're stifling innovation and investment", said Sen. Roger Wicker, R-Miss., said. "Foreign interference in our elections, terrorism, self-harm", Zuckerberg said. I misspoke, or got that wrong earlier.
"We've seen the apology tours before", Blumenthal said.

In his answers, by specifically mentioning a "free version" of Facebook, Zuckerberg didn't rule out the possibility of a paid version.
Facebook has officially released the correct number of Nigerian users their data were accessed by Cambridge Analytica.
Facebook has officially confirmed that about 78 Nigerian users were directly involved as they installed the app provided by Cambridge Analytica while 271,469 users were potentially impacted in Nigeria because they are friends to those who would have installed the app elsewhere in the world. Stucke, for instance, said a much stronger move would be for Facebook to fold USA users into the more stringent data protections the European Union will impose on internet companies starting May 25. Zuckerberg was nervous while answering Cruz's question.

California Democratic Sen. Dianne Feinstein simply asked, "What is Facebook doing to prevent foreign actors from interfering in US elections?" More recently, Facebook has been able to knock down terrorist recruitment as soon as it is posted, using artificial intelligence.

But he said "policing" Facebook isn't going to be easy because the ability of AI to identify the difference between political debate and hate speech is five to 10 years away.
Zuckerberg's contrition "won't matter much without additional action, some of which might even be foundational to Facebook's entire business model", Cornyn said.
During almost five hours of questioning by 44 US senators, Zuckerberg repeated apologies he previously made for a range of problems that have beset Facebook, from a lack of data protection to Russian agents using Facebook to influence USA elections. Zuckerberg seemed not to understand the question at first.
Testifying was a new step for Zuckerberg, who started Facebook as a Harvard dropout in 2004, and built it into the world's largest social media company worth more than $450 billion. Dean Heller told Zuckerberg.
The proximate cause is the Cambridge Analytica controversy.
