Why you keep using Facebook, even if you hate it

Why you keep using Facebook, even if you hate it

Mark Zuckerberg has had a tricky few days facing a barrage of questions from U.S. senators about digital privacy following the Cambridge Analytica scandal.

Zuckerberg said he was getting to the bottom of what the UK-based firm did and will tell everyone who may have been affected.

Ahead of Tuesday's hearing, the activist group Avaaz set up life-sized cutouts of Zuckerberg wearing a "Fix Facebook" T-shirt on the Capitol lawn, urging him to do more to root out fake accounts and "bots".

Zuckerberg said that Facebook allows people to decide whether and how they want their information shared.

OTW: Cambridge Analytica have basically stolen that data and used it in the election to help Donald Trump get elected in the United States. "So far, we've done nothing on Facebook..." Zuckerberg confirmed that his company was cooperating with special counsel Robert Mueller in his investigation into Russia's meddling in the 2016 US Presidential election. Lawmakers' concerns were triggered by news that data on 87 million Facebook users had been sold without their permission.

Zuckerberg went on to say that the data protections that Facebook offers Europeans (because they are forced to by EU laws) will be extended to Americans. "But for me, Facebook is such a major platform that I would never think about deleting my account".

"I hope that Mr Zuckerberg is just as honest as possible, way more honest than he has been in the past with his statements", said Annamarie Rienzi, 22, wearing a #DeleteFacebook T-shirt.

Others repeatedly mischaracterized Facebook's actual business practices.

After aggressive questioning about Facebook's alleged political bias from Senator Ted Cruz, Zuckerberg was asked if he was ready to take a break.

Facebook said it ended its support "to focus our efforts on supporting reasonable privacy measures in California". He said that if companies can't figure out how to protect that information, "none of us are going to have any privacy anymore".

"There are certainly other things that we do, too".

Facebook does limit some content that could be related to "terrorism" but, "We don't think of it as censorship".

"I spent some of my time with the company raising awareness about that vulnerability". It's clear that Russian Federation used Facebook to influence voter opinion in the election, but this is the first the public has heard of the Special Counsel talking directly to employees about it. In the Today Show interview, Sandberg said that the platform doesn't "have an opt-out at the highest level", adding, "That would be a paid product". "We didn't take a broad enough view of our responsibility and that was a big mistake". It was my mistake, and I'm sorry.

"In addition, if you choose to use Facebook from your mobile phone, keep in mind that you'll be responsible for any fees associated with internet usage and/or text messaging as determined by your mobile carrier". "We have to make sure people aren't using it to harm people or spread disinformation", Zuckerberg told the Senators.
