Apr 12, 2018 at 01:57 AM

The Quick Facts

  • Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg just completed a two-day Congressional hearing. He faced over ten hours of questioning from over 100 members of Congress.
  • Lawmakers spent much of the hearing questioning Zuckerberg about how Facebook is protecting user data, especially in light of the recent revelations that Cambridge Analytica gained inappropriate access to data from ~87 million users. Congress also pressed Zuckerberg on the issue of regulation.
  • During the hearing, Zuckerberg frequently told lawmakers that he was unable to answer the specific question at hand and he promised that his team would get back to them later.
  • Facebook's stock surged during Zuckerberg's testimony.

Food For Thought

Who had the upper hand in the congressional hearing? Zuckerberg or Congress? Does Facebook need to be regulated, and if so, how?
