'The Five' Praises Zuckerberg, Skewers 'Idiots' in Congress
During Zuckerberg's second day of questioning on Capitol Hill, California Democratic Representative Anna Eshoo asked, "Was your personal data included in the CA breach?" Zuckerberg did reiterate his acceptance of blame for allowing user data to be compromised, and outlined the steps the company plans to take in the future to better secure and vet those wanting to access their users' data.
"Every piece of content that you share on Facebook, you own, and you have complete control over who sees it and - and how you share it, and you can remove it at any time", Zuckerberg told Hatch. "When Facebook contacted us to let us know the data had been improperly obtained, we immediately deleted the raw data from our file server, and began the process of searching for and removing any of its derivatives in our system", CA said in response to Facebook's announcement.
Facebook was getting to the bottom of exactly what Cambridge Analytica did and telling everyone affected.
Hacked? YouTube's most watched video ever Despacito 'deleted'
Additionally, the video views are intact as well, suggesting that Vevo and Google-owned YouTube have troubleshooted the issue now. The alleged hackers who refer to themselves as Prosox and Kuroi'sh , reportedly took credit for the cyber attack on Twitter .
On adding more privacy and bringing security for its users, Mark Zuckerberg said, "We face number of issues on privacy, security, and democracy".
Zuckerberg disclosed that his company is "working with" special counsel Robert Mueller in the federal probe of Russian election interference.
The 33-year-old tech mogul was on Capitol Hill to face a second day of grilling from U.S. lawmakers over the data leak scandal which saw 87 million users - including 1 million Brits - have their personal info harvested.
Zuckerberg said as a result of the scandal, and the questions raised, Facebook is going to put, at the top of everyone's app when they sign in, a tool that walks people through the settings and gives people the choices and asks them to make decisions on how they want their settings set.
During the grilling session, a Senator asked Zuckerberg who owned an individual's presence online? And the tech illiteracy of numerous senators hampered the efficacy of much of the questioning, with Zuckerberg at times having to explain basic features of the social network.
"How can consumers have control over their data when Facebook does not have control over the data?" But it does sell access to you, or more specifically, access to your News Feed, and uses that data to show you specific ads it thinks you're likely to enjoy or click on.
The company's acting CEO has now stepped down in what appears to be a shakeup of the company's c-suite to show that the firm is making some drastic changes - similar to what had happened with the Equifax data breach incident.
