  • Here's How To Check If Your Facebook Data Has Been Stolen

The scope of Facebook's data gathering operation was a cause of concern for a number of other lawmakers, as well. Facebook Inc chief Mark Zuckerberg testified for almost 10 hours over two days on Facebook's privacy and data protection issues before committees of the Senate and House on Tuesday and yesterday.

Protesters hold signs before Facebook's Mark Zuckerberg testifies at a joint hearing of the Senate Judiciary and Commerce Committees on the protection of user data on Capitol Hill in Washington, April 10, 2018.

The company still isn't sure exactly how much personal data has been affected by third-party apps.

Attention to the GDPR continues to ramp up, and it makes sense that the regulation was brought up during the two-day grilling Zuckerberg has faced by USA lawmakers.

We want to hear from you. Zuckerberg would rather explain how to keep your boss from seeing your Instagram posts from your "sick day".

Unfortunately, each of the senators had only five minutes to talk during Tuesday's hearing, which meant that stronger lines of questioning like Sen. "Right there. Not buried in the settings somewhere but right there", the 33-year-old internet magnate told the US House of Representatives Energy and Commerce Committee.

Real Madrid and Bayern Munich advance to Champions League semi-finals

"Every time that someone chooses to share something on Facebook ... there is a control", he said.

Cruz then asked if Facebook had taken down any pages from Democratic candidates or liberal groups like Planned Parenthood and MoveOn.org, to which Zuckerberg said he had no knowledge of. Cambridge Analytica has not broken FEC Regulations.

Zuckerberg repeatedly defended the company's privacy practices, saying that users have control over their own data and decide what to share. He was also asked how Facebook stores data about which websites people visit, and whether it creates so-called "shadow profiles" - accounts for people who either have not created Facebook accounts yet, or gotten rid of them.

On Tuesday Zuckerberg disclosed his company is working with special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation of Russian Federation election meddling after a pro-Trump data mining firm accessed at least 87-million users information without their knowledge. But that doesn't mean it doesn't profit from it. By the terms of a 2011 consent decree, Facebook is required to identify and address emerging threats to user privacy.

The matter of advertisements is fairly sensitive for Facebook because this is the way the company makes money. No, Facebook doesn't sell your data.

Rep. Kevin Cramer, R-N.D., suggested Facebook might act more quickly to remove opioid ads if there was the threat of a $1 million fine. You can also download a copy of your Facebook data under settings. She said "Facebook was surprised we were able to suck out the whole social graph, but they didn't stop us once they realized that was what we were doing".
