That certainly wasn't the tune being sung by Facebook's founder in Washington, D.C., this week; if anything, "sorry" was the easiest response for Mark Zuckerberg to muster, again and again and again, during two days of testimony before USA congressional committees concerned about the unauthorized acquisition of 87 million Facebook users' personal data by a British political consulting firm. However, with the recent Cambridge Analytica issues and scandal after scandal due to the increased scrutiny on the company, it's becoming more and more hard to ignore the allegations that the company is mishandling personal information - even going so far as to build profiles for people who never signed up for Facebook in the first place.
"I feel uncomfortable (using Facebook), but that feeling actually encourages me to be careful about what personal information I put on social media", said Dylan Wen, a freshman communication studies major.
The information is believed to have been used to help Donald Trump's 2016 campaign for U.S. president.
It's not unusual for companies to pay these types of expenditures for CEOs. I think we need an answer to that.
"One aspect of the data that was leaked from Facebook was personality profile data".
But according to Monday's filing, Zuckerberg repeatedly admitted in his testimony that the Menlo Park, California-based company is "responsible for the content" on its platforms.

If one could brush aside the bipartisan preening and sound bites during the Zuckerberg hearings, he would still be subjected to an infuriating mix of ignorance and arrogance. If Facebook charged each of the 1.2 billion monthly active users $2.99 a year (about 1 day's worth of Starbucks Latte) - for an ad-free Facebook, the company could pull in $3.58 billion annually. Hypothetical situations proposed by Congress were shut down by Zuckerberg, stating that there is a "core misunderstanding" of how Facebook works in regard to user information. "That is really a minimum", she said. "When there's a marked increase like that, there should be an explanation in the footnotes". "This list may not include all apps and websites you've removed". Yet that passage was identical to language used in the company's proxy the year before.
He said in this particular case, "Facebook had a technical hole in their system that allowed Cambridge Analytica to pull down more detailed information about your friend circle". Revelations about Facebook's role in the exploitation of user data by a company called Cambridge Analytica to support the presidential campaign of Donald Trump, as well as the outcome of the Brexit vote - the referendum leading the United Kingdom to leave the European Union - have provoked widespread calls for tough, new data privacy laws. A Facebook spokesperson declined to provide additional information.
For one, it would make the state partially responsible for numerous company's problems - meting out "fairness", writing its user agreements and policing speech - but more importantly for Zuckerberg, it would add regulatory costs that Facebook could afford but upstart competition nearly certainly could not. According to Facebook: "Specific threats to his safety arising directly as a result of his position as our founder, chairman and CEO". "If I were on the board, I would want him protected 24/7".
Dingell asked Zuckerberg how many non-Facebook sites used various kinds of Facebook tracking software: "Is the number over 100 million?"
Still, Zuckerberg's costs tend to dwarf those of other CEOs.
