Find out if your data was shared with Cambridge Analytica

Zuckerberg is due to testify to Congress on Tuesday and Wednesday in the midst of the worst privacy crisis in Facebook's history. When it learned in 2015 that Kogan had shared his data trove with Cambridge Analytica, Zuckerberg said, Facebook banned Kogan's app from the site and demanded that he and Cambridge Analytica certify that they had deleted the data. "And our goals are to understand Facebook's impact on upcoming elections - like Brazil, India, Mexico and the USA midterms - and to inform our future product and policy decisions".

The Facebook chief will testify before senators on Tuesday and the House of Representatives on Wednesday after millions of users of his social network had their data breached by a firm working on Donald Trump's campaign.

"We didn't take a broad enough view of what our responsibility is, and that was a huge mistake", Zuckerberg said during a press call. "But, I think there's going to be a lot more action he's going to have to take in the future", said Nelson. Here are five questions that could shed more light on Facebook's privacy practices and the degree to which it is really sorry about playing fast and loose with user data - or just because its practices have drawn the spotlight.

The hearings were scheduled to address Facebook's use and protection of user data in the wake of the Cambridge Analytica scandal.

Mr. Zuckerberg's public remarks will be closely watched by investors. Moreover, Facebook says it will not have approval over the research topics or findings.

Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg expressed contrition for allowing third-party apps to grab the data of its users without their permission and for being "too slow to spot and respond to Russian interference" during the USA election, according to his prepared remarks published by the House Energy and Commerce Committee.

The queasy truth at the heart of Facebook's Cambridge Analytica scandal, which is so far the company's defining disgrace of 2018, is that its genesis became scandalous only in retrospect.

After the order, public servants can be arrested only after orders from their respective authorities. "No, they can't work". We only said protect an innocent from being falsely implicated under the Act, which has stringent provisions.

"We already have a tool to do this in your privacy settings, and now we will put this tool at the top of your News Feed to make sure everyone sees it", said Mark Zuckerberg on his Facebook page.

"Using as expansive a methodology as possible, this is our best estimate of the maximum number of unique accounts that directly installed the thisisyourdigitallife app as well as those whose data may have been shared with the app by their friends", the company said. If it's the latter, why shouldn't Facebook allow people to opt out of being targeted by ads? Facebook said the research "will be entirely forward looking" instead of trying to reanalyze Russia's interference in the 2016 election.

"I believe he understands that regulation could be right around the corner", Nelson said.

According to a report in technology website Tech Crunch on Saturday, unless the "Unsend" feature is released for everyone, Facebook will not unsend or retract any more of Zuckerberg's messages.

After receiving Facebook's response on Thursday, the government waited for London-based analytics firm CA's response to take a decision on the matter.

The steps are created to deter online information warfare and election meddling that US authorities have accused Russian Federation of pursuing, Zuckerberg said on Friday.
