Mark Zuckerberg made $3 billion while answering questions from Congress

Mark Zuckerberg made $3 billion while answering questions from Congress

As Bloomberg reports, Representative Ben Lujan asked Zuckerberg whether or not Facebook collected data on users who did not have an account.

Yet in his testimony to the House Energy and Commerce Committee, he was also steadfast in arguing that Facebook's users themselves are choosing to make their data available and that the company's "opt-in" provisions offered them sufficient control.

During the five-hour testimony on Wednesday, Zuckerberg admitted that his profile data was among those exposed in the Cambridge Analytica leak.

On Tuesday Facebook began notifying more than 87 million people around the world, including one million Britons, that their private information may have been given to Cambridge Analytica by an app developer from Cambridge University.

Facebook was getting to the bottom of exactly what Cambridge Analytica did and telling everyone affected.

For long Facebook has been infamous for their callous attitude towards their users' personal data and privacy.

The data mining firm is credited with helping Donald Trump win the US presidency in 2016. However, if you have a legitimate reason to share an image of any important personal document, such as your MBA degree you must enhance your privacy settings and make it custom to your trusted contacts.

Zuckerberg didn't elaborate more than that during the exchange with Eshoo, including how much of his personal data CA obtained.

Republican congressman Fred Upton cited an example of a Michigan Republican whose campaign page was removed from Facebook.

Facebook does have a policy to remove or hide content they deem unsafe or hate speech. "So at the end of the day we have community standards that are written out, and and try to be very clear about what is acceptable".

"We are two women of color, how are we unsafe?"

"Nothing is unsafe about that", Zuckerberg replied, explaining that these were mistakes.

"I am optimistic that, over a 5-10 year period, we will have AI (Artificial Intelligence) tools that can get to some of the nuances - the linguistic nuances of different types of content..." Zuckerberg said, "I think it's an idea that deserves a lot of consideration".

Larry Buschon, a Republican from IN, brought up a concern about Facebook listening IN on people's conversations. They are mostly just trying to understand how Facebook allowed this data breach to happen and are trying to determine whether there is a risk of it happening again.

"I think he's sorry he has to testify in front of Congress", Kelly said.

"This is a point in history where we really need to fix these things", McGinn said.

The company has always denied these allegations.

Does this not speak words about the security of Facebook?

During a second, extended round of questions from USA lawmakers overnight, the billionaire founder of the social media giant revealed his own personal information may have been shared with the controversial British political consultancy agency. Zuckerberg's notes also say that if asked if the company should be broken up, he should say that a breakup of Facebook would benefit Chinese companies.
