House members hit Zuckerberg hard on data collection, tracking

Tech Industry
Today we have Mr Mark Zuckerberg, chairman and CEO of Facebook Incorporated here to testify before the Full Energy and Commerce Committee. My top priority has always been our social mission of connecting people, building community, and bringing the world closer together. Advertisers and developers will never take priority over that for as long as I'm running Facebook. Facebook now has evolved to place where you are tracking everyone. And you are collecting personal information on people who do not even have Facebook accounts. Isn't that right? Congresswoman, I believe that we. Yes or no. Congresswoman, I'm not sure that, I don't think that that's what we're tracking Facebook also gathers that data about where we travel, isn't that correct? Congresswoman, everyone has control over how that works. I'm gonna get to that, but yes, you are. Would you just acknowledge that yes, Facebook is, that's the business you're in, gathering data and aggregating that data. Congresswoman I disagree with that characterization. The primary way that Facebook works is that people choose to share data. Primary way but the other way that Facebook gathers data is you buy data from data brokers outside of the platform, correct? Congresswoman we just announced two weeks ago That we are going to stop interacting with the data brokers. Even though that's an industry norm I. Was your data included in the data demoliscious third party? Your personal data? Yes. It was. As CEO you didn't know some key facts? You didn't know about major court cases regarding your privacy policies against your company. You didn't know that the FTC doesn't have fining authority and that Facebook could not have received fines for the 2011 consent order. You didn't know what a shadow profile was. You didn't know how many apps you need to audit. You did not know how many other firms have been sold data by Dr. Cogan other than Cambridge Analytica and Anoya Technologies. Even though you were asked that question yesterday, and yes, we were all paying attention yesterday You don't even know all the kinds of information Facebook is collecting from its own users. I know you're still reviewing, but do you know now whether there are other fourth parties that had access to the data from someone other than Dr. Kogan? Or is this something we're gonna find out in a press release down the road? Congresswoman, as I've said a number of times, we're now going to investigate every single act that had access to a large amount of people's information in the past before we locked down the platform. I do imagine that we will find some apps that were either doing something suspicious, or misused people's data If we find them, then we will ban them from the platform, take action to make sure that they delete the data and make sure that everyone involved is informed.
