“It’s clear now that we didn’t do enough to prevent these tools from being used for harm as well. That goes for fake news, foreign interference in elections, and hate speech, as well as developers and data privacy,” said Zuckerberg in his opening prepared remarks.
Zuckerberg’s appearance comes less than 18 hours after his whirlwind 5-hour appearance before a joint Senate hearing. The 33-year-old exec addressed the Cambridge Analytica data leak — where 87 million users had their information unknowingly leaked in 2014.
He also answered questions on a myriad of other topics, from Facebook’s efforts to weed out Russian trolls, to whether the company was censoring conservative voices, to the basics of Facebook’s business model.
