The 33-year-old founder and CEO of the world's largest social media company was grilled for hours on Tuesday and Wednesday by legislators in Washington DC.He said how Facebook had begun to inform users whether their data was improperly shared with Cambridge Analytica.
Facebook's founder was also asked about Face Mash, an apparently misogynistic website which he set up in 2003."From that beginning, whether that was actually the beginning of Facebook or not, you've come a long way," said representative Billy Long.Mr Zuckerberg said the company would be examining every app with access to a large amount of data before 2014, when Facebook "locked down" the platform.He added that he expected more breaches would be discovered.Any developers who are found to be improperly using data would be banned and the victims of that data abuse would be informed, Mr Zuckerberg told the committee.:: Almost 3 million EU citizens hit by Facebook data breach
