Look at all the liberal commenters pretend they dont know FB censors some conservatives and no liberals. All social media will follow this simple pattern: 1. Ban some conservatives and no liberals. 2. Ban/censor most conservatives and censor some liberals. 3. Ban/censor all conservatives and censor most liberals. 3. Ban/censor all conservatives and censor all liberals.

turns out that "ANYTHING that makes people feel unsafe in the community" also includes anyone who disagrees with exactly what they want you to believe because they feel threatened (unsafe)... classic lawerly language

NBC is as Disgraceful as Congress Congress is guilty of mistakes and holding private information on people. CONGRESS IS GUILTY
ASHLEY NEALY (11 months ago)
This video is clickbait I expect the news media to report fairly and just sleep rather than within their own bias

I find these US congress hearings simply a platform for legislators to market themselves as being tough. But they are the ones repsonsible for creating legislation and suppose to provide oversight. These hearings usually takes place after they failed to protect the public from some incident.
Riley Tatum (11 months ago)
I haven't heard him answer one question correctly. He sounds exactly like a democratic politician! Answer every question with an oversight.

He basically called Diamond and Silk terrorists as he squirmed to say it. Someone send the Zuck a dictionary.
Russian Robot (11 months ago)
only United States government can declare who or what is _"terrorism"_ and its very very hard thing to declare.

Zuckerberg only blocks conservative Republican value's and Christian value's . This Company must be regulated or at least have major Government oversight . Political bias nah only if your a Republican or Christian. Facebook is just another tool for promoting what we see and think, so I have zero use for this platform.

I find it soo odd that fb is on trial in Congress. Fb is nothing but a social media site. They don't rely on federal funds, save lives, endanger lives or make any laws or govern anything or anyone. I'm not understanding tnt significance of this. Everytime you go on the net your privacy is at risk, no matter what site you go on. What a waste of taxpayer dollars to pursue this junk.
Moneypenny (6 months ago)
Dan, are you this outraged over the gross waste of taxpayer dollars in another investigation I can think of?
Russian Robot (11 months ago)
There is law giving them criminal immunity for what users post. If they are not neutral platform they don't get that immunity.
Cameron Legge (11 months ago)
Dan K Except they’re selling our private lives to private companies, and that includes all of the data we put up there (what we click on, messages, personal info, our cookies and perceived interests) to the highest bidder no matter who they might be. It’s not just public info they’re selling, it’s all of it.
Allen Clark (11 months ago)
absolutely not. they have been caught censoring conservative speech constantly.
Jason Lee (11 months ago)
Zuckerberg: "There's certain content that clearly we do not allow: hate speech, terrorist content, nudity, anything that makes people feel unsafe in the community..." Great. Now it's PERFECTLY clear that the Chick-fil-A appreciation page, the two dozen catholic pages, and Diamond & Silk had to be silenced. Nude terrorists!
Moneypenny (6 months ago)
Jason, I guess Holocaust deniers don't make people 'feel unsafe in the community' since Suckaturd allows them.
MrCorvusC (7 months ago)
I would consider Chick-fil-A appreciation page to be a form of terrorism...food terrorism :)

If any company deserve to be fine it would be Facebook. They kept on selling user data even without our premission. Now, that data is out there for any hacker to get and use. Please, Congress fine facebook for a billion dollars. I’m tired of this company taking our infomation and miss using it. They definitly broke the law by grab data from our phones and user profile.

Regulate facebook.

Regulate Congress
Mackenzie Meyer (11 months ago)
Regulate youtube. Do you realize how much information they have on you? They know every video you watch and every comment you post. That's not even taking into account that you have to have a Google account to even have youtube. Do you know what Google has on you??? It's scary, but the truth is your information is all over the place being sold without your consent. Facebook is simply being usedto set an example.

someone should have cut him off and demand him to answer the question ever time he trys to give a BS reply.

"platform for all ideas" yeah except you have been censoring content you disagree with, quite frequently.
Matt (2 months ago)
+Andrew Shady How about you go to the comment section of videos. 25 comments - shows 4 - "comments have been filtered to show you the most relevant" *Oh okay, no worries. *Choose view all - Shows the same 4 comments.* wtf. Choose show newest first * shows the same 4 comments or never stops loading. They're censoring more than just "nudity, terrorism and other malicious things"
Moneypenny (4 months ago)
Oh STFU you brainwashed leftist. Where have you been living - under a friggin' rock? FB is constantly taking down Conservative posts and articles daily. Try reading information instead of propaganda. It's amazing what you'll discover.
chance Thin (4 months ago)
xxxxxxxxxxdddddddddddddd show me! Shoooow what you wanted to post and how they took it down! +Moneypenny
Moneypenny (6 months ago)
Andrew, right. Just add in there Conservative dialogue and you got it.
Andrew Shady (6 months ago)
yuck, how dare they to censor nudity, terrorism and other malicious things that no normal person like ? This is absurd
Moses Estrada (11 months ago)

Moneypenny (6 months ago)
Uh, yes he is. Not that hard to comprehend.

Moneypenny he not questioning the word neural he is not trying to infringe on the law as he said “I don’t know the law you speak of” not that hard to comprehend

Mit1 - really? He got into Harvard and doesn't know what the word neutral means?
Brandon Caudell (11 months ago)
You think your likes and dislikes being tracked is awful and that Zuckerberg should be ousted. Wait until a large financial company that holds your credit card info gets hacked and your identity stolen. And yet, no CEO of any financial institution has been "invited" to appear before a congressional hearing. Hmmmmm.......
John Schips (11 months ago)
Lizard-Boy TRANSLATION: Facebook is a biased, anti-Constitutional, Progressive Liberal, Socialist political platform, where ALL dissenting views & opinions are quashed. Thank you!
Brandon Caudell (11 months ago)
Almost every website tracks us with cookies. Any interactive website or app you use gathers your information. YOU give it to them! If you do not want your personal information out there, don't put it out there!
Brandon Caudell (11 months ago)
Mark, remain strong. You are doing a great job. Our government would love to regulate Facebook but it would be a mistake to allow them too much leeway. Remember, our government itself has difficulty governing this fast, technical world we live in. So many things are allowed to go on in this country that should not be allowed, because the government cannot keep up with technology. I agree that you would do a better job protecting our information than the government would. They would find a way to use it against us (and maybe that is what the hearings are really all about).
Methodic L (11 months ago)
Do you really think this guy started facebook? Just like Google, it is a government creation and only there to get people to divulge information. Which most of us go ahead and idioticly do so. But of course they always need a fall guy.
Baghuul (11 months ago)
You are either trolling or are naive.
John Schips (11 months ago)
Brandon Caudell : In other words, Brandon, you and your ilk determine what is & isn’t “hate-Speech” . Be careful what you wish for, Brandon, for the pendulum will swing.

you sound like you need some regulations.
Judgy Judgerton (11 months ago)
What I say, or buy...any of my information....ANY, being sold....makes me feel "uncomfortable"...what does the company do about that? We should not be allowed to waive our rights in a EULA....that is where change starts. Social media is so big, so fast, that we have convinced ourselves we cannot live without it. Without first considering whether we can live WITH it, constrained AND protected by legal limitations. Start charging for Facebook, then GUARANTEE my privacy after that.
