Zuckerberg Says Cambridge Analytica Collected His Own Data

Yet, when asked if his data had been improperly shared with Cambridge Analytica, he replied: "Yes".

The internet magnate is scheduled to testify at 10 a.m. EDT (1400 GMT) before the U.S. House of Representatives Energy and Commerce Committee, a day after he appeared for almost five hours before a U.S. Senate hearing. "It was my mistake, and I'm sorry", Zuckerberg said. When reached for clarification, a Facebook spokesman said Wednesday that the company's estimate already includes the possible other affected users.

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 testified for around five hours in a Senate hearing on Tuesday.

As for the federal Russian Federation probe that has occupied much of Washington's attention for months, he said he had not been interviewed by special counsel Mueller's team, but "I know we're working with them".

"This is proof to me that self-regulation simply does not work", Schakowsky said, according to The Guardian.

Donkey Kong ace stripped of standing
At the core of King of Kong was the rivalry between Wiebe and Mitchell, and the latter served as the flawless villain figure. The body also reached out to the Guinness Book of World Records to have Mitchell's scores struck from their data as well.

Facebook COO Sheryl Sandberg said in a recent interview that Facebook has thought about turning to paid models so that users could opt out of sharing their information with advertisers.

He asked Zuckerberg if his company allowed extreme uses of Facebook user data by the 2012 Obama campaign, citing a series of March tweets by Obama campaign official Carol Davidsen.

Although Zuckerberg, 33, had never testified at a congressional hearing before, he succeeded in deflecting questions like a Washington veteran. Richard Blumenthal, D-Conn., held up a placard showing three previous times Zuckerberg had to apologize for a data breach. So if you've signed up for, say, Uber using Facebook, Uber now has your information.

Mr Zuckerberg was asked whether Facebook was a monopoly."It certainly doesn't feel that way to me", he said, breaking into a smile as the audience laughed. Now, you know that and I know that.

"I'll have my team follow up with you so that way we can have this discussion across the different categories where I think this discussion needs to happen", Mr Zuckerberg told a joint hearing by the US Senate's Commerce and Judiciary committees, when asked what regulations he thought were necessary.

The demands came during two days of testimony on Capitol Hill by Facebook founder and CEO Mark Zuckerberg. In fact, on Tuesday, Facebook Inc posted its biggest gain in the past two years.

Yvonne's older sister, Cleotha , died in 2013 of Alzheimer's disease. "Yvonne got me", Mavis Staples later said . The Staples Singers had been made up of her sister Marvis and Cleotha and their dad Pops Staples.

Zuckerberg said regulation of social media companies is inevitable, but warned that rules could also hamper the industry's growth.

Facebook's data policies have been thrust into the limelight following reports that United Kingdom data firm Cambridge Analytica, which has ties to President Trump's 2016 presidential campaign, improperly obtained data from Facebook.

On Wednesday morning, dressed as the day before in a dark suit, he told the US House of Representatives Energy and Commerce Committee he disagreed with assessments that users aren't able to control their data.

There were multiple questions on data privacy at the Congressional hearing, on how and what data and information Facebook had access to and also if it listening on to people's calls?

"After we were slow to identify the Russian information operations in 2016, this has become a top priority for our company to prevent that from ever happening again, especially this year, in 2018, which is such an important election year with the United States mid-terms, but also major elections in India, Brazil, Mexico, Hungary, Pakistan and a number of other places", he said.
