Mark Zuckerberg: It was my mistake, I’m sorry

Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg expressed contrition for allowing third-party apps to bag the data of its users without their permission and also for being ‘too slow to spot and respond to Russian interference’ during the US election. This is according to his prepared remarks published by the House Energy and Commerce Committee.

“It’s clear now that we didn’t do enough to prevent these tools from being used for harm as well,” Zuckerberg plans to tell lawmakers.

 

He adds,  “That goes for fake news. We didn’t take a broad enough view of our responsibility, and that was a big mistake. It was my mistake, and I’m sorry. I started Facebook, I run it, and I’m responsible for what happens here.”
