  • Long lines protest before Facebook CEO Zuckerberg testifiesMore

And that it knows because either Facebook users most of the time do a check-in or share the details and photos of the place where they are staying, or Facebook just gets the information from the Global Positioning System of the phone on which your FB app is installed. He alleged that because 270,000 people took the quiz, the data of some 50 million users, mainly in the United States, was harvested without their explicit consent via their friend networks.

And under "Defend Facebook", the notes advised the CEO that "If attacked", he should respond: "Respectfully, I reject that".

According to the latest figures from Bloomberg's rich list, Zuckerberg's personal fortune jumped by a staggering $2.7bn during the course of the five-hour questioning by United States senators.

He said that "we have a responsibility to not just build tools, but to make sure they are used for good". Last year, it was learned that Russian actors relied on the platform to foster political discord in the heat of the 2016 campaign, using Facebook advertisements and pages to disseminate misinformation.

"He ditched his normal grey t-shirt for a suit and it was a solid performance from the Facebook CEO".

Users of the Cambridge Analytica-related app presumably agreed to share their own information with the app's developer when they installed the app. Kennedy said he didn't feel like Zuckerberg was "connecting" with the senators, and then got blunt. Under "Data safety", the notes read, "Made mistakes, working hard to fix them".

"We're investigating every single app that had access to a large amount of information in the past". We shouldn't have taken their word for it.

"We did not hack Facebook or break any laws", Cambridge Analytica insisted.

The small tech firm is accused of helping to influence Britain's vote to leave the European Union in 2016.

Speaking on the threat to the system, Zuckerberg said that there are people in Russian Federation whose job is to try to exploit Facebook systems and other internet systems as well.

Facebook employs more than 20,000 people in security and content review, he said, and when a user flags something as offensive, these staffers examine it and take it down if it violates the site's policies. "It was my mistake, and I'm sorry", he said. Zuckerberg said he has not been interviewed himself but others on his team have. "We think offering people an ad-supported service is the most aligned with our mission of trying to connect everyone in the world, because we want to offer a free service that everyone can afford".
