The company also added that it doesn't track users or target ads at them via the Like button, and that it deletes or anonymized the data after 90 days of using it.

This line of questioning continued as Rep. Billy Long got his turn to speak with the Facebook creator. Zuckerberg demurred, saying, "This is a complex issue that I think deserves more than a one-word answer". He repeatedly apologized again during his Congressional testimony.

"We didn't take a broad enough view of our responsibility, and that was a big mistake. It was my mistake, and I'm sorry", Zuckerberg said. "For non-Facebook members, previously we didn't use [Facebook's Audience Network ad service]", exec Brian Bosworth said in 2016. "We want to offer a free service that everyone can afford".

Once Zuckerberg finished his opening statement, it was lawmakers' turn to ask questions.

Three senators introduced privacy legislation on Tuesday that would require users' permission to collect and share their data. He testified in an hours-long joint session before two Senate committees on Tuesday.

CEO Mark Zuckerberg testified to the US Congress on Wednesday for his second day of grilling by lawmakers following a string of scandals for the company. "A lot of times regulations put in place rules that a company that is larger, that has resources like ours, can easily comply with, but that might be more hard for a smaller startup company".

"The internet is growing in importance around the world".

"From the beginning of the company in 2004 - I started in my dorm room; it was me and my roommate", Zuckerberg said.

"But I think you have to be careful about putting regulation in place".

Zuckerberg also addressed the issue of Facebook's competition.

Facebook now claims 87 million users and their account data were accessed by Cambridge Analytica.

But he professed not to be familiar with the term "shadow profiles" despite it having been used widely by the media during a past Facebook data privacy controversy.

Pallone said he found Zuckerberg's response "disappointing".

During almost five hours of questioning by 44 United States senators, Mr 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 U.S. elections.

The 87 million Facebook users had their data harvested by a third-party app posing as a personality quiz.

Although shares of Facebook dipped Thursday morning, they are still up almost 3% since Zuckerberg entered Capitol Hill to face questions from the Senate Tuesday.

Zuckerberg, 33, appeared confident and answered questions directly, and his performance helped bolster Facebook's stock, which ended the day up 4.5 per cent.

Mr Zuckerberg also faced questions about the illegal trade of ivory in closed Facebook groups.

"But for this model to persist, both sides of the bargain need to know the stakes that are involved". The company has always been accused of creating these "shadow profiles". Zuckerberg replied. "We need to be able to build tools that will proactively go out and identify these ads before people flag them".

The stock was already rallying earlier Tuesday as investors digested the previously released prepared remarks from Zuckerberg.

"There is absolutely no directive in any of the changes that we make to have a bias", responded Mr Zuckerberg.
