Mark Zuckerberg Continues Another Round of Testimony on Capitol Hill

WASHINGTON D.C. - Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg is on Capitol Hill again for another round of testimony.

On Tuesday, Facebook's CEO apologized for failing to protect the privacy of millions of users.  Zuckerberg faced dozens of pointed questions and comments from lawmakers in Washington and said that the social media site could do a better job protecting user data. 
    
Lawmakers were particularly concerned about the harvesting of information in 2015 by a third party app posing as a personality quiz.  
    
The data was sold to Cambridge Analytica, a political consulting firm that worked for the Trump campaign.
    
"It's clear now that we didn't do enough with these tools to prevent harm as well. and that goes for fake news, foreign interference, and hate speech, as well as developers and data privacy," said Zuckerberg. 

Zuckerberg was in front of about half the senate yesterday testifying. He confirmed that some Facebook employees were interviewed as part of Special Counsel Robert Mueller's Russia probe.
