Zuckerberg's delivery was wooden, and stuck closely to company talking points - but didn't make any major mistakes.
Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg testifies before a House Energy and Commerce hearing on Capitol Hill about the use of Facebook data to target American voters in the 2016 election and data privacy. After this week's hearings, Congress should begin to look past Facebook's bluster about its size and importance and begin to push for real legislative remedies to the social network's problems, rather than leaving them to the site's users to deal with after the fact. The lawmaker called that answer disappointing.
"He really is presenting himself as a leader", Cohen said. Facebook's technology doesn't need Zuck to post "I'm in Washington D.C." to know that he's in Washington, D.C. Similarly, Facebook doesn't need you to say "I've got a crush on so-and-so". He expects the U.S. economy to slow next year and predicts cyclical sectors, which rise and fall in line with economic growth, to suffer as a result. Essentially any bureaucratic decision can now be made by algorithm, and those algorithms need interrogating way more than Zuckerberg does. "Your right to privacy". Zuckerberg swapped his signature gray hoodie, t-shirt, jeans and sneakers for a neat navy suit and blue tie. Notice he didn't wear a flashy tie; you want to blend in. Facebook's mission is to "help people connect". When a leader is repeatedly apologizing, she said, "it calls into question your apology - was it really sincere?" But after it was over, Walden acknowledged there's little consensus. That requires being just as well-informed as he is. Work to get off book. And all of a sudden I start receiving advertisements for chocolate. "I am responsible for what happened, '" said Wood.
But representative Fred Upton, a Michigan Republican, said regulation "could create a harmful barrier to entry for some startups, particularly ones that might want to compete with you".
Zuckerberg maintained a matter-of-fact demeanor even as some members openly questioned his sincerity and honesty. He also looked around the room.
The executive's drawn out "Uh, no"-which incited giggles from the audience-actually underscores the vulnerable position his company is in, and the impetus behind the #DeleteFacebook movement, which has led many users to delete their social media accounts in recent weeks".
Zuckerberg: Congressman, I'm not, I'm not familiar with that.
The social media platform is working to place a link at the top of users' news feed to inform them if their data was "improperly shared".
"We all agree with that", Leahy snapped.
Plenty of the jokes about the hearing had to do with The Social Network - the 2010 film which told the story of Facebook's creation. But some senators did provoke a reaction. And that's the condensed version.
Think before you speak. This not only buys time to get your thoughts together, but can also get someone to rephrase a long-winded question better.
Lots of other companies - maybe hundreds! - and "malicious actors" also collect our data.
Move to continue the conversation.
With 1.3 million followers on Facebook, Diamond and Silk are a North Carolina-based pair of sisters who grew a substantial conservative fanbase thanks to their charismatic videos supporting President Donald Trump.
"We will learn from this experience to secure our platform further and make our community safer for everyone going forward", Zuckerberg said in March. "Do it three times and it's time for a divorce".
