He will then explain how Facebook aims to prevent this from ever happening again, such as more scrutiny of developers and limits on the amount of information they can collect in their apps.

Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg will tell Congress in scheduled appearances this week that his company should have spotted Russian interference in the US presidential election earlier, a transcript of his testimony released on April 9 says.

Zuckerberg's written statement was released ahead of two days of congressional hearings in which he will not only try to restore public trust in his company but also stave off federal regulation that some lawmakers have floated.
"Facebook never publicly disclosed the removal of messages from users' inboxes, nor privately informed the recipients". Associated Press reporters around the world have been surveying users, none of whom have reported seeing anything from Facebook.

Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg has already apologized to users for not doing enough to protect their privacy.
"We organised "get out the vote" efforts that helped more than 2 million people register to vote who might not have voted otherwise", Zuckerberg says.
Zeynep Tufekci from University of North Carolina apprehended that the testimony just turns into congressional spectacle, that lawmakers yell at Zuckerberg.
He said, "Here we are talking about Syria", and "I have this witch hunt constantly going on for over 12 months now". Mueller's interest in Pinchuk stands out as the Ukrainian does not have any known ties to the Russian government.
