Zuckerberg met the number of the politicians, both democrats and republicans. However, he refused to communicate with the journalists.
‘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’, Zuckerberg apologized in the comment published by Energy and Commerce Committee of the U.S. Congress House of Representatives.
He also claimed that Facebook was ‘too slow to spot and respond to Russian interference, and we’re working hard to get better’.
Today on April 10, Zuckerberg will deliver a speech at the joint session of Trade and Justice Committees and at the session of Energy and Commerce Committee on April 11. If the senators consider his explanations on the data leak conflict unsatisfactory the Facebook may face tough legislative regulation.
As it was reported earlier, against the scandal with data leak of 50 million users and the use of it by Cambridge Analytica Company, Facebook reported on the simplifying of the privacy settings.
Zuckerberg was invited to the European Parliament to explain this incident. Zuckerberg should explain whether the use of the data of the Europeans for the manipulation took place. It could be used by London’s Cambridge Analytica Company during Trump's election campaign.
