Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg began day one of yesterday's Senate hearings by taking "full responsibility" for his company's missteps. Day two saw lawmakers dull the niceties as they drilled down on Russia and Cambridge Analytica's Facebook meddling in the 2016 presidential election.
Republican Representative Greg Walden of Oregon told Zuckerberg that while Facebook has grown, he worries it "hasn't matured." Lawmakers on both side of the aisle pressed Zuckerberg on his company’s handling of user data, focusing on the platform’s privacy settings.
The embattled CEO was also questioned on whether the social network should be regulated, what Russians did on Facebook during the 2016 election, whether the social network had a liberal bias and 10-hours worth of other inquiries about the platform.
Before the hearing concluded, Zuckerberg said regulation was “inevitable.” He pointed out that some regulation could only solidify the power of a large company like Facebook, which could hurt start-ups
