Facebook Submits Answers to Congress’s Questions on Data Privacy

Facebook has responded to the more than 2,000 questions from Congress that followed CEO Mark Zuckerberg’s testimony in April. The questions were wide-ranging, touching on privacy issues, the company’s stance on potential social media regulation and many other topics. What was notable was that Facebook didn’t directly answer many of the tougher questions, especially around political influence, discrimination or privacy issues. That will further the narrative that the social media giant is not as transparent as it needs to be about how it handles user data. That is especially concerning after reports last week from The Wall Street Journal that the scope of data sharing could have been much wider than originally presented.
