Mark Zuckerberg to testify before Congress
On Wednesday April 11, Zuck himself will appear on live television and face what many expect to be a “grilling” from members of Congress, upset with the way his company has handled consumer’s private data over the years. As the day approaches, more and more information continues to surface that exposes deep mishandling and collecting of data. Zuckerberg has been on the defense, seeking to explain in safe terms the business model of Facebook, and how he plans to fix the problem, possibly with the help of federal regulation. He’ll also face questions about the platform’s influence on society, and how they plan to halt the spread of misinformation and “fake news”. Zuck is no stranger to Capitol Hill, but in light of the recent Cambridge Analytica scandal, we can expect the mood to be a little different on this visit.
