Mark Zuckerberg Says His Info Was Leaked to Cambridge Analytica

Mark Zuckerberg Says His Info Was Leaked to Cambridge Analytica

Others sued in the action, in U.S. District Court in DE, included Cambridge Analytica, SCL Group Ltd. and Global Science Research Ltd., which "obtained the Facebook user data to develop and foster political propaganda campaigns", according to the lawsuit.

Prior to the Cambridge Analytica scandal, Facebook was already struggling to address the fallout around the 2016 presidential election.

Hear, hear: Zuckerberg's testimony before a joint hearing of the Senate Commerce, Science, and Transportation and Senate Judiciary committees was sparked by the revelation weeks ago that Facebook is at the center massive data scandal.

Zuckerberg's prepared remarks for the House hearing are identical to those that he gave to the Senate committee ahead of Tuesday's testimony.

Following this answer, the crowd joined the Facebook CEO in nervous laughter.

Below are some of Zuckerberg's quotes during, as well as some of his exchanges with senator. To me, one of the most interesting developments was that Mark Zuckerberg acknowledged that Facebook could charge users in the future instead of seeing advertisements.

A full transcript of the hearing is available on the Washington Post website. Facebook reportedly had its best trading day in two years.

Both companies also say they moved to have the data deleted once they learned of the problem in 2015. How do we deal with the next step?

Zidane: 'Real Madrid deserved it'
This time it was substitute Stephan Lichtsteiner , on for Mattia De Sciglio , who was given too much space by Marcelo to cross. It will not take away everything he has done, even if it's a shame to end his Champions League career this way".

Under "Election integrity (Russia)", Zuckerberg's notes read, "Too slow, making progress". And if Facebook violated its own policies with respect to the sharing of user data.

"In retrospect it was clearly a mistake to believe them", he said.

In other words, Zuckerberg has taken some blame, but he doesn't want his company to be sued for its actions (or inaction). Facebook appears to have never truly audited the third-party companies with access to its data, and combing back through years of activity on the platform is going to take a whole bunch of time. I'm committed to getting this right.

Although Facebook's proactive move to show users whether or not their data was stolen is useful, it seems like just the tip of the iceberg. Tuesday was the first time that Zuckerberg stated 2016 as the date when the company identified new operations linked to the election.

In typical Facebook fashion, there's no simple button you can click to see if your data was stolen.

"There are people in Russian Federation whose job it is to try to exploit our systems and other internet systems and other systems as well", he said.

When asked about battling fake news on the platform, Zuckerberg said, "This is an arms race".

"If you've messaged anybody this week would you share with us the names of the people you've messaged?" the Illinois Democrat asked.
