Facebook: Mark Zuckerberg and United States senators inspire endless memes

On the topic of Europe's General Data Protection Regulation, Reuters reports that the European Union is now going even further, establishing a Social Media Working Group to take a deeper dive into the harvesting of personal data by Facebook and others. Ironically, shares hit an all-time high just before the Cambridge Analytica scandal hit, but they've been down 16 percent ever since. CA was used by the Trump campaign in 2016.

The company's data collection practices are a huge focus of the current debate-and the scandal that led to Zuckerberg's appearance in Congress. Even if you only have this information set to be shared with your "friends", you can't guarantee that this information won't find its way to non-friends or total strangers.

Earlier this year, Mueller charged 13 Russian individuals and three Russian companies in a plot to interfere in the 2016 presidential election through a social media propaganda effort that included online ad purchases using U.S. aliases and politicking on USA soil. Mr. Zuckerberg replied: "Congresswoman, I'm not sure what that means". Did Zuckerberg reveal we will all soon be paying for the site? He attended by his own choice and is not on trial, he is merely there to help congress understand the situation. "Those posts he brought up on the screen were brought to Facebook's attention back in November, but they hadn't taken any action". But the United States lawmakers were still angry. Lawmakers in both houses, and on both sides of the aisle, raised concerns about whether Facebook had proven to be incapable of regulating itself.

He claimed that "there's a very common misperception. that we sell data to advertisers", adding that "we do not sell data to advertisers". Zuckerberg was unable to answer Dingell when she asked how many website pages had such buttons.

Facebook tracks users even when they're logged off, and Zuckerberg said that's for either security or advertising reasons.

So, how did he do?

Senator Lindsey Graham (R-South Carolina) was mocked online for asking Zuckerberg: "Is Twitter the same as what you do?"

Khloe Kardashian to give birth on Friday?
The source added: "Immediately after [the birth], she plans on leaving Cleveland and never returning". According to the site, she worked with a Los Angeles attorney to secure the video and destroy it.

This has been the subject of many conspiracy theories, and even memes, for a long time. He just want to self-regulate problems as they arise. However, he also said that AI wouldn't be able to properly deal with hate speech for another five to ten years which seems. ridiculous?

Zuckerberg has earlier said Facebook will ensure that its platform is not misused to influence elections in India and elsewhere.

Whilst being grilled by Senator Orrin Hatch, Zuckerberg was asked whether Facebook would always be free.

Rumors are flying about whether or not a paid version of Facebook is on the horizon.

If and how Facebook plans to implement the portion of Europe's GDPR-a sweeping digital privacy law-that gives users the right to object to the processing of their personal data for marketing purposes in the US.

He parried questions of how much control people have over their data on the world's largest social media network without a major gaffe, while avoiding being cornered into supporting new government regulation.

"Some stand out quotes included...."
