More than 620000 Canadians affected by Facebook data breach

The public testimony will be Zuckerberg's first before the US government and comes after Facebook has been the subject of broad criticism and numerous legal inquiries over how the user information of 50 million Facebook users ended up in the possession of a data-analysis firm that worked with President Donald Trump's election campaign.

It's far from certain what action, if any, the GOP-led Congress and the Trump administration might take against Facebook, but the company will nearly certainly oppose any efforts to regulate it or the technology business sector more broadly. Now, in a blog post on 4 April, Facebook subtly revealed that 87 million people, mainly in the United States, rather than 50 million people as first thought, were affected by the Cambridge Analytica scandal, and it has examined its "opt-in feature" and is making changes to it. Facebook promised it will delete all logs older than one year.

Cambridge Analytica, a data-mining firm affiliated with President Donald Trump's campaign, has been accused of using ill-gotten data from Facebook users to try to influence elections.

Among the proposed changes to its terms, Facebook said it will explain how it personalises the service for users - by using the connections, choices and settings users select on the platform.

"Yes. We're going to tell anyone whose data may have been shared", he replied. "The 50 million number originally reported was an estimate provided by parties other than Facebook".

Nevertheless, the Cambridge leak has inspired a wide-ranging debate about Facebook's privacy practices.

Facebook Chief Executive Mark Zuckerberg will testify about the matter next week before the U.S. House Energy and Commerce Committee, the panel said on Wednesday. This is the first confirmation that Zuckerberg will take questions from members of Congress.

Zuckerberg is also doing a conference call with reporters Wednesday at 4 p.m. Walden and Pallone said a day later that as Facebook's top executive, Zuckerberg is indeed the "right witness to provide answers to the American people".
