WASHINGTON D.C. – The founder of Facebook will be back in the hot seat today in Washington.
Mark Zuckerberg was called to Capitol Hill to testify about user privacy.
The hearing comes after Cambridge Analytica, a political consulting firm hired by the Trump campaign, was able to allegedly harvest the personal information of 87 million Facebook users without their consent.
Zuckerberg said Tuesday it was a mistake.
Zuckerberg said, “We didn’t take a broad enough view of our responsibility and that was a big mistake and it was my mistake and I’m sorry.”
Zuckerberg testified before the Senate judiciary and commerce committees for about five hours yesterday.
Today he’ll appear before a House committee and is expected to face more questions about the data breach, Russian interference and the mechanics of the social media platform.
