They said, "hey, we made a mistake", and in all fairness to them a lot of those mistakes were corrected 18 months ago. Meanwhile, 35% claim to be using the social network less than they used to following the data breach.

Zuckerberg said user ownership of content is fundamental to the website. He noted that larger companies like Facebook have more resources to comply with regulations than small startups. "I didn't know anything about building a company or global internet service", he wrote in January 2018. "I have to laugh when Zuckerberg says our mission is to connect people".

Menlo Park, California-based Facebook paid to buy, install and maintain security measures for Zuckerberg's personal residences, which include properties in San Francisco and Palo Alto, the filing showed.

Several Republicans also strongly voiced their concerns on the opposite end of the spectrum - that over-regulating or policing of the platform would lead to anti-conservative bias and a general silencing of offensive opinions.

Zuckerberg and Facebook should learn from this congressional grilling that they have struggled and occasionally failed in their responsibilities to users. Such a system might have the potential to block bad posts before they spread, without humans needing to make subjective decisions in individual cases. But some of the most popular apps, such as Whatsapp and Instagram, are owned by Facebook.

Zuckerberg also appeared willing to work with lawmakers on possible regulations, which we think may actually create a barrier to entry in the social network space and help Facebook maintain its market leadership.

His admission that even the company's tech-savvy founder was unable to protect his own data underscored the problem Facebook has in persuading skeptical lawmakers that users can easily safeguard their own information and that further legislation governing Facebook is unnecessary.

"Most importantly I'm especially dejected that not only are these failures impacting the regular users, I'm extremely sorry that I can't even tell the United States lawmakers who has and hasn't viewed their Facebook profiles", the written statement said.

We need government oversight.

"Many of the solutions you're hearing members of Congress and groups like ours call for are comprehensive privacy solutions".

Ever since the Cambridge Analytica scandal became public knowledge, forcing chief executive officer Mark Zuckerberg and chief operating officer Sheryl Sandberg to apologize, Facebook has been making changes to the way it allows third-party apps to access data. Zuckerberg said the company is auditing tens of thousands of apps to find other such leaks, and will inform affected users when it identifies them.
