Facebook user agreement 'sucks,' senator tells Mark Zuckerberg

Uproar after US senator asks Zuckerburg to get rid of Swahili from Facebook

Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg was grilled by United States Louisiana Senator John Kennedy concerning the transparency of his social media company policies. There are some impurities in the Facebook punch bowl, and they've got to be fixed.

"Senator you can already delete any of the data that's there", said Zuckerberg in answering one of Sen.

He may not care much about who may be snooping into his personal data on Facebook, but some other local users do.

The billionaire chief executive was cross-examined during a joint hearing of the Senate, Judiciary and Commerce committees on Tuesday, April 11. "If we are not communicating this clearly, then that's a big thing that we should work on". Amy Klobuchar, of Minnesota, in demanding that Zuckerberg and the CEOs of Twitter and Google come testify. It notifies recipients that one of their friends used Facebook to log in to a now banned personality quiz called, "This Is Your Digital Life".

As TUKO.co.ke formerly reported, the Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) leader Raila Odinga on Monday, March 26, vowed to press charges against Facebook and British data firm Cambridge Analytica. "Now, you know that, and I know that". "It's the last thing I want to do, but by golly, I will vote to do it if he is not going to really sit down and be serious about this", Kennedy said.

"I don't want to regulate him".

Kennedy appeared on CNN's "Erin Burnett OutFront" after the hearing to discuss the comment and said he is prepared to vote for heavier regulation if Zuckerberg doesn't heed the warnings of Congress.

He's slated to return Wednesday for a hearing before members of the U.S. House of Representatives. Questions touched on whether Facebook adequately informs users about the volume of personal information the company harvests and how that data is used to target advertising or is shared with developers.

Still she does not believe there will be a mass exodus from the social media platform but she believes users' have learned a lot lately.

"I'm thinking very seriously about it".
