Zuckerberg has a hard time during the second hearing with US Congress

Zuckerberg said that the company tracks non-users for "security purposes", without elaborating.

But he stiffly defended Facebook's use of the data and postings of the 2.2 billion users of its free platform - in order to attract the ad revenue that the $480- billion company depends on. Zuckerberg didn't know how to answer some of the queries about that tracking, and told representatives that his staff would follow up. "I have zero expectation that this Congress is going to make adequate changes".

The email also apologized for the company's claim that the Diamond and Silk Facebook page was "unsafe for the community", saying that the notification was "inaccurate and not reflective of the way we communicate with our community and the people who run Pages on our platform".

Although it's not been confirmed by Facebook, fuel has been added to the fire after a comment was made by Zuckerberg during his appearance.

Several Republicans also strongly voiced their concerns on the opposite end of the spectrum - that over-regulating or policing of the platform would lead to anti-conservative bias and a general silencing of offensive opinions.

"One thing that seems to be clear from everything that has taken place is that not everybody is talking from the same script", he said.

Of these, a bill pushing for political advertising transparency appears to have the most momentum right now, with support from Facebook as well as Twitter. He also said that the firm will be increasing resources to investigate apps and take appropriate actions.

"The Internet is growing in importance around the world in people's lives, and I think that it is inevitable that there will need to be some regulation", he said. In yet another announcement on 9 April, the social media network said it was tweaking what it calls "data practices" as well as information that third-party apps on Facebook can access.

Lawmakers were at times aggressive Tuesday as they accused Zuckerberg of failing to protect the personal information of millions of Americans from Russians intent on upsetting the US election.

"We don't know what we need to protect ourselves from", she told The Current's Anna Maria Tremonti.

"Many of the solutions you're hearing members of Congress and groups like ours call for are comprehensive privacy solutions".

Kogan built a personality quiz app on Facebook that captured data on Facebook (fb) users and then sold the information to Cambridge Anlaytica, which violated the company's terms and policies.

Part of the reason we keep seeing data scares like this is that Facebook's lacklustre messaging around user rights and data policies have contributed to confusion, uncertainty and doubt among its users.

At Tuesday's hearing, Sen.

Facebook on Monday said: "Our goals are to understand Facebook's impact on upcoming elections - like Brazil, India, Mexico and the USA midterms - and to inform our future product and policy decisions".
