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.
