Facebook co-founder and chief executive Mark Zuckerberg is set to testify Wednesday before the House Energy and Commerce Committee on how Facebook collects and analyzes data from users.
This is Zuckerberg’s second appearance before Congress. In his Tuesday testimony to a joint session of the Senate commerce and judiciary committees, the Facebook CEO apologized for mistakes that led to the research firm Cambridge Analytica scandal. Facebook is facing scrutiny following allegations that Cambridge Analytica had improperly gained access to private information of as many as 87 million Facebook users, including 71 million Americans. The political consulting firm is linked to President Trump’s presidential campaign.
Speaking before a packed room with 44 senators in attendance on Tuesday, Zuckerberg said his company is rethinking its responsibilities to users and society.
