Mark Zuckerberg's testimony before Congress: how and where to watch

Cambridge Analytica has sought an additional time of one week to respond to government’s notice Mark Zuckerberg's testimony before Congress: how and where to watch

Facebook's chief executive Mark Zuckerberg is to testify before the US House Commerce Committee regarding the firm's use and protection of user data. Those users were not notified that their personal information was being accessed without their permission. They'll have a chance to delete apps they no longer want.

Last week, Mr. Zuckerberg declined to appear before a United Kingdom parliamentary committee seeking evidence on how companies acquire user data from Facebook, choosing to send a deputy instead, according to a letter from Facebook published by the parliamentary committee.

Cambridge Analytica worked for US President Donald Trump's campaign.

That's according to a Reuters interview with Facebook bossman Mark Zuckerberg, who agreed with the data protection rules laid out in GDPR "in spirit", but said he won't commit to adopting it as a standard for Facebook's data dealings across the globe.

Bannon, for his part, claims that the company did not purchase user data from Facebook, though a one-time employee seems to say otherwise.

Zuckerberg is scheduled to speak with reporters on a conference call on Wednesday at 1 p.m.

"This was a breach of trust, and I'm sorry we didn't do more at the time", Zuckerberg said in signed full-page advertisements published March 25 in The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, The Washington Post and six British papers.

Their committee is the first of three USA congressional panels that requested Zuckerberg's testimony to announce a hearing date.

House Energy and Committee Chair Rep. Greg Walden (R-OR) and ranking member Rep.

Facebook is facing scrutiny over its data collection following allegations that the political consulting firm Cambridge Analytica obtained data on tens of millions of Facebook users to try to influence elections. Walden is the committee's Republican chairman and Pallone is the panel's top Democrat.

Facebook will by law have to comply with the GDPR in Europe, but has said to Reuters that it won't offer the same level of protection to users in the United States and elsewhere - only something in the same general direction.

"This hearing will be an important opportunity to shed light on critical consumer data privacy issues", said Representatives Greg Walden, Republican of OR, and Frank Pallone, Democrat of New Jersey, of the House committee.
