WEDNESDAY – 4/11/18

Yesterday, Mark Zuckerberg, founder and CEO of Facebook, was asked a wide range of questions while he testified against a Senate committee.

   Zuckerberg still has another day of testimony on Capitol Hill, and will likely again be asked a diverse amount of questions. The hearing was called on suspicions of Cambridge Analytica, who in order to promote Republican candidates hacked into Facebook in order to advertise.

   Despite the scandal gaining an increased amount of attention, other questions were asked, sparking both approval and disapproval. Sen. Ted Cruz backlashed at Zuckerberg, complaining about Facebook’s treatment of conservative groups on the sight. Other questions weren’t on point, Sen. John Kennedy Jr. complained about Facebook’s user agreement, saying that it “sucked,” while also pointing out numerous things to improve. Zuckerberg, of course, responded with defense stating that they were already a part of the agreement.
