Hate Speech is Not Going Away Anytime Soon, Says Mark Zuckerberg

Hate Speech is Not Going Away Anytime Soon, Says Mark Zuckerberg

As for me, I have purged many of my apps, even Farmville had to go, and tightened the permissions I've granted to the ones I've kept, but I won't be deleting my profile.

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

Larger, more dominant companies like Facebook have the resources to comply with government regulation, he said, but "that might be more hard for a smaller startup to comply with".

On "Outnumbered Overtime", Blackburn said she believes this will be the first of many hearings as lawmakers examine the need for privacy regulations on social media.

Rep. Jan Schakowsky, a Democrat from IL, recounted a long list of Zuckerberg's apologies over the years before concluding: "This is proof to me that self-regulation does not work".

Mark Zuckerberg says his Facebook data was included in the personal information sold to malicious third parties, a reference to the Cambridge Analytica scandal that has rocked his company over the past several weeks.

"It's clear now we didn't do enough", Zuckerberg said on the protection of private user data and to prevent the hijacking of data on millions by Cambridge Analytica.

MANILA, Philippines - Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg admitted during a House committee hearing on Wednesday, April 11, to a personal connection to the privacy scandal with data analytics firm Cambridge Analytica.

It couldn't be easier to watch Mark Zuckerberg's congress live stream.

Facebook Inc Chief Executive Mark Zuckerberg fielded 10 hours of questions over two days from almost 100 us lawmakers and emerged largely unscathed and considerably richer.

He added that he expected more breaches would be discovered. But he said his company "can do a better job of explaining how advertising works".

Mr Zuckerberg, who, at 33, runs a multi-billion-dollar company with some two billion users, accepted personal responsibility for the leak of users' data and vowed that the company will do better in guarding such information.

Seemingly unimpressed, Republican Sen.

Cambridge Analytica allegedly then used the data to create highly specific profiles of millions of US voters, which made it easier for the company to create better targeted ads. "We're going to put a tool at the top of people's apps that walks them through their setting". He offered no details, citing a concern about confidentiality rules of the investigation.

On Friday, he threw his support behind proposed legislation, known as the Honest Ads Act, that would require social media sites to disclose the identities of buyers of online political campaign ads. He is in the pocket of the USA state.

Lawmakers also accused the company of violating a Federal Trade Commission order. He assured senators the company would have handled the situation differently today. Others noted however that lawmakers had demonstrated little knowledge of how Facebook works - potentially complicating any regulatory effort.

At certain points lawmakers grew exhausted of Zuckerberg's evasiveness and rehearsed platitudes, with Republican Congresswoman Marsha Blackburn accusing the 33-year-billionaire of trying to "filibuster" by wasting time with non-answers.

"Every piece of content that you share on Facebook, you own, and you have complete control over who sees it and - and how you share it, and you can remove it at any time", Zuckerberg told Hatch.

House lawmakers on Wednesday drilled down on Zuckerberg for a number of incidents when conservative content was rejected or blocked from its platform. "It was my mistake, and I'm sorry", he said.

Using a weak password or leaving yourself logged into your Facebook account on a random computer are easy ways to give the wrong people access to your account.
