Zuck's mea culpa to EU Parliament

Privacy
Europeans make up a large and incredibly important part of our global community. And many of the values that Europeans care about deeply are values that we share from the importance of human rights and the need for community to the love of technology and all of the potential that it can bring. Now we've always focused on all the good that technology and connecting people can bring. And As Facebook has grown, it has helped give people everywhere around the world new tools to stay connected to the people they care about the most. After the recent terrorist attacks in Berlin, Paris, and here in Brussels, tens of thousands of people have used our Safety Check tool to tell the people they love that they are safe. Refugees arriving in Europe are using Facebook to stand touched with their loved ones, back home and find new communities here. There are 18 million small businesses, here in Europe, that use Facebook today. Mostly for free. Almost, half of whom, save the day of hiring more people As a result of their use of our tools. But it's also become clear over the last couple years that we haven't done enough to prevent these tools from being used for harm as well. And that goes for fake news, foreign interference in elections, and developers misusing people's information. We didn't take a broad enough view of our responsibility And that was a mistake and I'm sorry for it. It's going to take time to work through all the changes that we need to make here. But I'm committed to getting this right and to making the significant investments that are necessary to keep people safe. For example We are doubling the number of people working on safety and security at our company to more than 20,000 by the end of this year. On top of the investments that we're making in other areas, I expect that these increased investments in security will significantly impact our profitability. But I want to be clear. Keeping people safe will always be more important than maximizing our profits. [BLANK_AUDIO] Now let me start by explaining the action we're taking to prevent what happened with Cambridge Analytica from happening again. Back in 2014, we changed our policies to more tightly restrict the information that apps could get. And to proactively review all apps asking for more data. So now we're going to go even further than this. First, when you use an app, it's now only gonna get limited access to your information. Your names, your profile photo, and your email address, unless they've gone through a full review So it's much less information the apps can get on mobile platforms today. 2nd if you haven't used an app in 3 months we're going to prevent that app from accessing your information until you authorize it again. 3rd last month we showed everyone on the top of their news feed a tool with a list of all the apps that they've used As well as a simple way to remove permissions for any apps that they not longer want access. Finally, we're investigating every single app that had access to a large amount of people's information before we locked down our platform in 2014.
