CEO Zuckerberg apologizes for Facebook's privacy failures

Gmail обещает показать новое

"This is the most important principle for Facebook: Every piece of content that you share on Facebook, you own and you have complete control over who sees it, and how you share it, and you can remove it at any time", said Zuckerberg.

On the subject of fake news, Mr Zuckerberg said "one of my greatest regrets in running the company" was its slowness at uncovering and acting against disinformation campaigns by Russian trolls during the United States election.

On Monday, he had admitted to the US Congress that his company had not done enough to prevent the misuse of people's data.

During his two-day marathon testimony in Washington this week, Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg looked particularly uncomfortable answering basic questions about how Facebook tracks people when they're not using Facebook.

Zuckerberg said the European standard, General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), to come into effect on May 25, was more stringent than what was now in place at Facebook and suggested it could serve as a rough model for USA rules in the future.

"This is a complex issue that deserves more than a one word answer", Zuckerberg said.

Facebook Chief Operating Officer Sheryl Sandberg told NBC News on Thursday that Facebook users could have to pay to completely opt out of their data being used to target them with advertising.

But you might be wondering, how do I know if my personal information might have been shared?

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 USA aliases and politicking on US soil.

He had no response when asked how a person who is not a Facebook member can remove information without first signing up for the service. The legislation would govern how internet companies gather data and notify consumers about the use of their data.

Let's just hope lawmakers will take the time to check out the photo of Zuckerberg's notes that was snapped by an Associated Press journalist during the hearing today because they contain a very interesting line about the General Data Protection Regulation.

Still, he didn't give specific details around certain aspects of how the company has handled private user information.

Zuckerberg acknowledges that the Facebook user agreement is problematic.

.

Conceding the flaw in the Facebook's privacy mechanism, Zuckerberg said he is strenuously working "towards fixing it".

The billionaire Facebook founder was challenged more directly by Democratic Representative Anna Eshoo: "Are you willing to change your business model in the interest of protecting personal privacy?" "I want to make sure in an open session I don't reveal something that's confidential", he said.

Zuckerberg said at the House hearing that his own Facebook data was part of that sweep.
