Facebook's problems are my mistake, says Mark Zuckerberg

Mark Zuckerberg refuses to say if Facebook tracks you after you log out

The notice comes as Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg prepares to face US Congress over the social network's involvement in the 2016 election and its connections to Russian Federation.

- could be abused and manipulated.

On Tuesday, the company's CEO, Mark Zuckerberg, will be testifying before US lawmakers to explain what happened with the information harvested by Cambridge Analytica. On Monday, Zuckerberg ditched his trademark T-shirt for a suit and tie as he made the rounds on Capitol Hill with his assistant Andrea Besmehn for private meetings with lawmakers ahead of the hearings - a key test for the Facebook founder.

"For conservatives like me", Eric Wilson, Marco Rubio's 2016 presidential campaign digital director and founder of LearnTestOptimize.com, recently wrote in a Politico op-ed, "it's not easy to call for increased regulation and antitrust enforcement, but Facebook has shown time and again that its leaders, including Mark Zuckerberg himself, aren't capable of responsibly wielding their enormous power and influence in Americans' lives". "For most of our existence, we focused on all the good that connecting people can bring", Zuckerberg says in the written testimony. Angus King (I-Maine) told lawyers for Facebook, Twitter and Google that he was "disappointed that you're here and not your CEOs because we're talking about policies and policies of the companies".

Zuckerberg will testify that Facebook is building new technology to prevent states from interfering in foreign elections, is developing artificial intelligence tools to remove fake accounts, and will hire more people to work on security and content review.

As the Facebook scandal over Cambridge Analytica's misuse of the personal data of millions of users continues to unfold, Facebook is suspending another data analytics firm over similar allegations.

What's Zuckerberg going to say? And in March, it emerged that Cambridge Analytica, a political research firm used by Trump's campaign, illicitly obtained the personal data of up to 87 million users.

"We will continue working with the government to understand the full extent of Russian interference", Zuckerberg said.

"We're going to do audits and, yes, we think it's possible", Sandberg said.

Cubeyou denies wrongdoing, and Cubeyou CEO Federico Treu told CNBC that it "had the rights disclaimers on a separate site". Nelson added, "I think we have just seen one of the openings in the door to taking our away our privacy". Nelson said it would be "very difficult" to impose regulations, particularly during the current administration.

"Facebook is not an innocent bystander to these crimes", said Stephen Kohn, executive director of the National Whistleblower Center.

"The bottom line here is: if Facebook cant fix its privacy problems, then how can Americans trust them to be caretakers of their sensitive information?" he asked. "With all of the data exchanged over Facebook and other platforms, users deserve to know how their information is shared and secured", he said.

There have been more than a dozen company blog posts about data privacy and election meddling in the three weeks since news of the Cambridge Analytica scandal first broke.

Zuckerberg is also expected to be asked about Russia's use of USA social media during the 2016 elections - a subject of several congressional investigations and special counsel Robert Mueller's probe into Russian interference. "We're starting this in the USA and expanding to the rest of the world in the coming months", Zuckerberg said.

The White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders said the administration is looking forward to his testimony. "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". This has raised concerns about how the company safeguards the privacy of its users. If Facebook does not know, then why not?
