Brent Goff speaks to DW's Michael Knigge on Capitol Hill about Mark Zuckerberg's testimony
The UK and European parliaments have called on Facebook boss Mark Zuckerberg to explain the use of its data by Cambridge Analytica. The social network said it also faced questions from the US consumer watchdog.
It's been a ropey period for Facebook, and with Chief Executive Officer Mark Zuckerberg now up before Congress in the US, things may get even ropier. Can the social media stave off a decline that many have predicted?
Marks Zuckerberg has admitted Facebook failed to protect user data and prevent manipulation of its platform. Some 87 million users had their personal information harvested for political purposes by Cambridge Analytica.
Mark Zuckerberg will not appear before a UK parliamentary hearing, but has agreed to testify at a US congressional hearing. Both are asking how 50 million users' data ended up in the hands of a political consultancy.
