  • If We Can't Protect Your Data We Don't Deserve It Facebook

There was no mention of the British firm accused of using the data, Cambridge Analytica, which worked on US President Donald Trump's 2016 campaign. If Facebook was slow to respond, its share price - down 14% this month - was not. It did not, however much liberals would love to overturn the result.

Zuckerberg explained there was a quiz developed by a university researcher "that leaked Facebook data of millions of people in 2014".

"It won't be easy but if companies work with governments, activists, academics and web users we can make sure platforms serve humanity".

Mozilla, which makes the popular Firefox web browser, has become the first major organization to stop advertising on Facebook amid the controversy over the Cambridge Analytica files.

Facebook also will begin cutting off an app's access to an account holder's data if the app hasn't been used for three months. "And if we find developers that misused personally identifiable information, we will ban them and tell everyone affected by those apps", he said.

"Thank you for believing in this community". "I promise to do better for you".

Zuckerberg said this week he would be willing to testify if he is the right person at the company to speak to lawmakers.
