Facebook hearing at EU Parliament gets heated over style formatThe EU Parliament hearing turned contentious when members complained they didn't get their questions answered directly by Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg.
I think I was able to address the high level areas in each and I'll make sure that we follow-up with each of you, afterwords, to make sure that your specific questions get addressed. And we're gonna have someone come to do a full hearing. soon to answer more of the technical questions as well. So thank you again for inviting me, for having me. Mr. Zuckerberg, I think there was one question raised by a [UNKNOWN] and that's linked to my question. That's the separation of different services. And I think it's a very important question this round. [UNKNOWN] market power of Facebook, and the question if you cross use for example data between Facebook and Whats app, so it would be good if you say at least one word to that. And will you allow users to escape targeted advertising? I asked you six yes and no questions, I got not a single answer. And of course well you asked for this [UNKNOWN] [UNKNOWN]. For a reason...[ BLANK AUDIO]>> I'll make sure we follow up and get you answers to those. Okay, I think I going to ask you if it's possible to have right answer for any question from you in the next days. So I think that everybody of us can provide you more question, because [CROSSTALK] Well, we have all well prepared our interventions so we have them on paper. We could, Mister President, you collect them, you give them to the team of Mister Zuckerberg, back to Mister Zuckerberg himself, and we receive written answers on it. Because, let's be honest, I have not so much, I don't think that the right way is to say, and now we're gonna put it to [UNKNOWN]. No, there are a number of other questions that have been put by other colleagues that I want an answer to. That said, I'm anxious of this new brave new world that Mr. Zuckerberg has presented us. A brave new world where tens and tens of thousands of private people are scrutinizing us, and are saying what is fake news, what is not fake news. What is hate speech? What is not hate speech? Mr. President- Don't you think that it is a public task? We need to continuation of this discussion in this format as well in the leader format, this is very obvious. I think, first of all- [INAUDIBLE] Is it possible to [INAUDIBLE] right answer. By this Zuckerman in the next days. For every question. But okay. Competition, for example, or European anti trust state. That's important. I think we're gonna push our antitrust agency to go into this. There is not a good answer too? Well I think the problem is the timing. For me it's possible to say that there is a flight. But I think- There is no flight. They come from France [CROSSTALK] Yes, of course. Strikes is only [INAUDIBLE] Sorry. I think this is the format. If, do your [UNKNOWN] but for right Answer the next days for it, question by question [UNKNOWN] [INAUDIBLE] The questions that weren't answered today. Yeah, yeah, you have the question, okay? Yeah, yeah. yeah. Okay, thank you very much. Thank you
