From Plucky To Embattled: Mark Zuckerberg's Public Image Is Evolving


Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg is testifying before a House committee Wednesday, his second day of grilling by lawmakers over concerns about users' privacy.

I would like to ask the same question when the dust settles, because I believe that by the end of this, the USA will use the leverage against Facebook to access every type of data and communications they have on billions of accounts. Zuckerberg has also apologised for the more recent scandals.

Rep. Kathy Castor pressed Zuckerberg hard on whether and how Facebook tracks users after they are off the platform. Rep.

Mr Zuckerberg said the company would be examining every app with access to a large amount of data before 2014, when Facebook "locked down" the platform.

Zuckerberg has taken questions on a range of issues, from fake news and terrorist content to Russian propaganda and data privacy, as USA lawmakers consider possible regulatory remedies. Zuckerberg is set to testify in front of the House Energy and Commerce Committee today. Facebook allows users to share certain pieces of data, and once that data gets shared, it's often used for ad targeting.

When Zuckerberg said for the umpteenth time that Facebook does not sell data, John Cornyn, R-Texas, said Tuesday, "you clearly rent it". "We took down the app and we demanded that both the app developer and Cambridge Analytica delete and stop using any data that they had".

In the 4 minutes of tensed exchange, the representative also asked Zuckerberg if he was willing to change Facebook's business model to protect the privacy of people who use the social media platform.

"Congressman, it's something that we're looking into". "Your right to privacy and 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", Durbin said.

"In general we collect data on people who have not signed up for Facebook for security purposes to prevent the kind of scraping you were just referring to", he said.

"I've just seen it over and over again - that we have the hearings, and nothing happens", Pallone said. It's not clear what that regulation would look like and Zuckerberg didn't offer any specifics.

Lawmakers were at times aggressive Tuesday as they accused Zuckerberg of failing to protect the personal information of millions of Americans from Russians intent on upsetting the US election.

"There are a number of areas of content that we need to do a better job of policing", Mr Zuckerberg replied, adding that he believed artificial intelligence tools would make this possible in the future.

"A$3 number of people suggest that we should offer a version where people cannot have ads if they pay a monthly subscription, and certainly we consider ideas like that".

"Let's say $5 a month, or $50 per year - not a significant cost to anyone - but you start getting a few percentage points of participant penetration into the 2-plus billion users, it's a lot of revenue and it doesn't come with any additional costs", Feinseth said in a phone interview.

Facebook shares closed up 1.2 percent on Wednesday after dips earlier in the day.

But his calm demeanor at times appeared to frustrate the panel of 42 senators, who also lobbed questions on everything from diversity to bias against conservative news and views at the 33-year-old billionaire - without extracting many new concessions from him.

I know, it's scary to think you'll suddenly be cut off from high school friends you no longer talk to in real life.

That disclosure pitched Facebook into a crisis of confidence among users, advertisers, employees and investors who were already struggling with Facebook's reaction to fake news and its role in the 2016 election.
