"I don't think there's been any meaningful impact that we've observed", he said.

On regulation, Zuckerberg said he was open to it.

Take the more profound back-and-forth Zuckerberg had with Rep. Doris Matsui (D-Calif.) on Wednesday.

One of the issues raised was about the alleged political bias of the platform, with conservative legislators asking about the removal of several popular conservative Facebook pages.

In his testimony, Zuckerberg also stated that Facebook does not see the messages of acquired company WhatsApp, India's most popular messaging platform.

As accusations and recriminations fly against Mark Zuckerberg and his Facebook empire, users are finally waking up to just how much money the social network make out of them.

Facebook has been consumed by turmoil for almost a month, since it came to light that millions of users' personal information was wrongly harvested from the website by Cambridge Analytica, a political consultancy that has counted U.S. President Donald Trump's election campaign among its clients.

"We continue to have these abuses and these data breaches", DeGette said.

My hairdresser (we are Facebook friends) told me that he was tagged as being "with" a woman he had never met and the ensuing row with his wife could have led to divorce.

Although much of the current global discussion about internet privacy is focused on Facebook's recently publicized policies and failures, the Gallup poll also found a greater number of Google users are concerned about their protecting their privacy when using the platform-35 percent are "very concerned", a 10-point jump from 2011.

But clearly, their technical expertise leaves much to be desired, that we can't take their digital literacy for granted (that's why they have advisors who, one would hope, know a bit more).

"But, in order to prevent people from scraping public information..." At the close of Wednesday's hearing, Zuckerberg had spent roughly 10 out of the previous 24 hours testifying before Congress. At the very least, we should expect some answers as to why Facebook has been able to get away with harvesting data from users that haven't consented, unless Zuckerberg continues to ideal the deflection techniques he's seemingly getting good at.

Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg has told U.S. lawmakers that his personal data was also harvested and sold by Cambridge Analytica and he intends to initiate legal action against the British firm accused of stealing personal information and using it for political purposes.

Seemingly unimpressed, Republican Sen. Alastair Mactaggart, the chief proponent of the proposed initiative, said: "We're gratified that Facebook has dropped its opposition to the California Consumer Privacy Act".

As for the federal Russian Federation probe that has occupied much of Washington's attention for months, he said he had not been interviewed by special counsel Mueller's team, but "I know we're working with them".

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 offered no details, citing a concern about confidentiality rules of the investigation.

I was one of the people who had their data shared with Cambridge Analytica, a company that has become notorious for using Facebook to target voters. A number of the Russian ads were on Facebook.

In a statement afterwards, he said: "Social media companies are not above the law and will not be allowed to shirk their responsibilities to our citizens".

The company does this by using different techniques integrated into pages around the web.
