Zuckerberg is expected to face tough questioning at the committee meetings in Congress, where lawmakers are considering whether social media companies need to be reined in by new privacy regulations. The data was then reportedly used by Cambridge Analytica to influence the result of the 2016 USA presidential election, along with other major events.

"We didn't take a broad enough view of our responsibility, and that was a big mistake", he says in the remarks.

"For conservatives like me", Eric Wilson, Marco Rubio's 2016 presidential campaign digital director and founder of LearnTestOptimize.com, recently wrote in a Politico op-ed, "it's not easy to call for increased regulation and antitrust enforcement, but Facebook has shown time and again that its leaders, including Mark Zuckerberg himself, aren't capable of responsibly wielding their enormous power and influence in Americans' lives".

"I don't think it is as scary as some people think it is, because most of the personal information I put on Facebook I don't think is all that interesting to companies", Sbrocco said. After the Senate hearing on Tuesday, Zuckerberg will return to the Capitol on Wednesday for another hearing on the other side of Capitol Hill before the House Commtitee on Energy and Commerce.

He met Senator John Thune, the Commerce Committee's Republican chairman, later in the day.

WPP CEO Martin Sorrell faces 'personal misconduct' investigation
Sorrell said the allegation was being investigated by a law firm, and he understood the process would be completed shortly. Sorrell built London-based WPP from an investment in a shopping-basket manufacturer into the owner of blue-chip agencies.

Facebook found out about the privacy "breach of trust" in 2015, and banned the app that had been the source of the breach - a personality quiz app developed by Cambridge University researcher Aleksandr Kogan, who then sold the information he gathered to Cambridge Analytica.

"Over the past few weeks, we've been working to understand exactly what happened with Cambridge Analytica and taking steps to make sure this doesn't happen again", he says. He will be testifying before Congress Tuesday.

Then came questions about Russian meddling, and reports that Russians targeted Facebook users with political ads. "We've gone for many years in the United States believing that self-regulation could work - that Facebook and the other tech giants could police themselves, but I think very few people still believe that".

"We will do our part not only to ensure the integrity of free and fair elections around the world, but also to give everyone a voice and to be a force for good in democracy everywhere", he said.

The apology tour is a shift for Zuckerberg, who said in 2016 that it was "crazy" to suggest Facebook influenced the election before regretting the sentiment.

Erdogan, Putin mark start of work on Turkey's first nuclear power plant
At present, there are 450 nuclear power plants in 31 countries, while 55 plants are under construction around the world. Iranian President Hassan Rouhani will join Erdogan and Putin for a three-way summit on Syria in Ankara on Wednesday.

Facebook's logo appears on screens at the Nasdaq MarketSite in New York's Times Square, on March 29, 2018. Facebook was bound by that order to provide users with clear information about their privacy settings, to prevent sharing of their data beyond what they agreed to permit, and also to proactively look for threats to data privacy and find ways to remedy them.

The Silicon Valley firm also deleted a feature that allowed people to search for users' profiles based on their e-mail addresses and phone numbers, which Mr. Zuckerberg said had been abused by "malicious actors" to collect information about many Facebook users.

Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg waits in the office lobby of Sen. Nelson said afterward that Zuckerberg was "forthright and honest to the degree he could" be in the private, one-on-one meeting. Mr. Zuckerberg is nearly sure to be asked why it took a whistleblower to reveal the problem.

Republicans so far have shown little appetite for such regulation, but that could change if there are future privacy scandals or Democrats gain control of Congress in this November's elections. On Monday, the Energy and Commerce Committee published Mark Zuckerberg's prepared remarks, ahead of his appearance before the committee on Wednesday. Facebook is also under investigation by the Federal Trade Commission, which is evaluating the company's compliance with a consent decree, finalized in 2012, which settled FTC claims that Facebook's privacy practices were deceptive.
