The head of Facebook vows to correct mistakes
CEO Facebook mark Zuckerberg on Tuesday, speaking at a joint hearing of the Senate judiciary Committee and the Senate Committee on Commerce.
The theme of the hearings is a large – scale leak of personal data of users of Facebook that led to the fact that these 87 million people were without their knowledge at the disposal of the British company Cambridge Analytica, for which he ran the campaign headquarters of Donald trump to work with probable supporters for the 2016 elections.
On Wednesday, Zuckerberg will address the legislators of the house of representatives.
“It will take some time to work through all the changes that we need to implement, but I firmly resolved… to rectify (the situation). This includes improving how we protect information about people and stand guard over the elections in the world”, – noted in a written statement, the head of the company Facebook.
Among the issues that are the focus of legislators:
Protection of private life: can two billion users, Facebook can count on the fact that their data is not in danger,
The extent of fraud during the elections-2016: there are claims that the company understates their Facebook. The company rejects this criticism.
On Monday, Zuckerberg held a closed meeting with lawmakers in Washington.
“Our views on our responsibility was not wide enough and it was a big mistake. (It was a) my fault and I’m sorry about it,” said Zuckerberg.
