Zuckerberg begins Facebook’s case for the defence

Here are some supposed highlights from Faceboook founder Mark Zuckerberg’s first day of testimony before the US Congress following the Cambridge Analytica data mis-use revelations (87m users had their information hacked).

Not much new here from a contrite Zuckerberg although elsewhere he did hint that a paid version of Facebook might emerge if data collection was limited. Be interesting to see if the assembled politicos (who hardly seem to fit the Facebook audience profile) move on to Facebook (and Google’s) dominance of digital advertising.

The whole thing is being streamed live by various news organisations including the Guardian and Washington Post (owned by Amazon’s Jeff Bezos – when will it be his turn to be grilled for hours?)
