Zuckerberg had apologized many times already, to users and the public, but this was the first time in his career that he had gone before Congress.

He returns to Capitol Hill on Wednesday for another round of grilling by a committee of the House of Representatives. And it was my mistake, and I'm sorry.

An example would be if someone were discussing lawn mowers near their phone, then suddenly started seeing lawn mower ads in their Facebook news feed.

Facebook has officially released the correct number of Nigerian users their data were accessed by Cambridge Analytica. One of those being that everyone globally on their Facebook page will see an alert leading them to the apps setting where they can review the apps they've allowed access to their data. Meanwhile, on Tuesday Facebook introduced a new "Data Abuse Bounty" that will pay cash money to users who find apps on Facebook that collect and transfer "people's data to another party to be sold, stolen or used for scams or political influence".

Earlier this year Mueller charged 13 Russian individuals and three Russian companies in a plot to interfere in the 2016 presidential election through a social media propaganda effort that included online ad purchases using US aliases and politicking on USA soil.

Decision On Salman's Bail Plea Reserved Till Tomorrow
The actor is not allowed to leave the nation without the permission of the court and also have to report back to jail by May 7. Just before the hearing, Salman's counsel claimed that he received threatening messages.

They ranged from issues like Russian meddling in the 2016 campaign to hate speech to a lack of transparency in election advertising - all issues that have plagued Facebook in recent months, but all disparate problems that require different solutions.

"We want to encourage people to manage the apps they use".

Zuckerberg had gone through rigorous training sessions with lawyers, consultants and advisers in the days before the hearing.

"One of the steps that we need to take now is to go do a full audit of all of Cambridge Analytica's systems to understand what they're doing, whether they still have any data, to make sure they remove all of the data", he said.

His opening statement does not reveal new information about how data was shared or what Facebook will do. The demonstration, created to make a statement about fake identities, came as the Facebook founder made his much-anticipated appearance before Congress to testify about the Cambridge Analytica data scandal.

The Indian maintained his lead with his next two shots but Repacholi went ahead by a point after to more attempts. However, come the final, Ankur turned the tide to bag India's 8th bronze medal in this year's Commonwealth Games.

It also noted some of the high-profile companies that have deleted Facebook, including Mozilla, Tesla, and WhatsUp.

After a pause, and some laughter from himself and the room, Mr Zuckerberg said: "No".

"In retrospect it was clearly a mistake to believe them", he said.

Democrats like Nelson have argued that federal laws might be necessary to ensure user privacy.

Republicans have yet to get behind any legislation, but that could change.

Fans Attended Rays vs. White Sox Game at Guaranteed Rate Field
The Rays (3-8) go for the series sweep in the finale of their eight-game, three-cold-city road trip on Wednesday afternoon. He walked Abreu and gave up a single to Nicky Delmonico that put runners on first and second with none out.

Facebook Chief Executive Officer Mark Zuckerberg on Tuesday publicly apologised for failing to protect the personal information of millions of users.
