Facebook updates now do not see any improvement. Worst of my comments. I just applied for a new Facebook for less than 10 seconds. Let me confirm my identity. I, who have many followers, have been suspended for use. I tried not to return, not to me. It's the worst.

He lies so much. Accounts are not completely deleted. I did my own test and I encourage you all to do the same even if its a fake account. I made an account in 2017 and was able to access it plus photos and friends still remained on page in 2019. I want all of my data including shadow data deleted permanately

(Don't gotta reply if you dont like what I say) The first question, I truly respect. I get see where he's coming from because not that it's out there It just got me curious and not furious or annoying lol

1:30 Isn't there like a little question that pops up asking you for permission to allow the app to enter the camera, microphone and like storage? I'm just curious because I've noticed that too

Without taking any position; my understanding the science community has been attempting to create AI just about from beginning of the dawn of the computer age. It seems that the main problem is that the computer fails to actually produce a "true" random number, id est, the microprocessor gets faster and the algorithm evolves into a more complex multi-layer algorithm, but it will be an incredible scientific discovery to achieve true AI without incorporation or reliance of organic material by the inanimate computer infrastructure. It is great to hear discussion concerning innovation and modernization of our technology, that hopefully I will live long enough to experience (of course with your expertise in putting the necessary independent team to assess ethical considerations and possible risks/dangers) - we live in a really exciting time.

FB, Google or any social media platforms work on basic principles of advertisement, high traffic generation, it is a business model. You cant get away with it and that is how the circle created. If you are smart end user, you need to keep mimimum personal information on all these media platforms, Best way to utilize services, You keep a device to acess Internet that does not have SIM card, acess it through Wi-fi. Buy an old fashioned mobile for talking over the phone with limited space for your SMS and calls.

Facebook is only a small preview to how fast this digital evolution is upon our Beautiful society here in America and Globally.

Zuckerberg is great at answering questions he wants to be answered and avoiding questions whose answers he wants to conceal. Even a whole gang of senators can't crack him down . There's just no outsmarting this guy.

Couldn't they at least get a person who knows how to turn on their computer to ask questions? This whole farce about inviting him to congress to speak with thick minded apes was a mistake. Not that I'm defending him, but those people clearly are not COMPETENT to be anywhere near any kind of regulations related to internet or technology. They are CLUELESS.

Everyone do mistake. This should be known by senate. A young CEO of facebook face bravely in front of all them, I feel great of him. Is hard to create something what we need or want, but easy to destroy. A.I have don't mistakes that's bad news what if Law do mistakes. Whats the answers?

I don't buy the argument that people 'want ads that are tailored for them'...on what basis do they think this is true? I don't want to be bombarded with any adverts, thanks. Targeted advertising works for the people selling stuff, not the other way round

@2:13 "we do record that to make the service better" In other words we record and run through our algorithms your conversations for key words to sell your information to the advertisers you will find on your computer by the time you get home. In other words Congressman, YES, we DO spy on the American citizen and steal their personal information!

Nothing will come of this. Everybody knows what FB is doing, and yet the majority continue to use it anyway. People are so addicted that the only way they'll ever give it up is if FB is taken down, and that's not going to happen. The truth is we'll never know for sure exactly what FB is doing with all our data, regardless of what Zuckerberg or anyone else tells us. Using our data to generate ads is one thing, but I'm more concerned about what else they might be doing with it. The only way that we can protect ourselves, even a little bit, is to unplug completely, and most are incapable of doing that. I'm on FB, but I only check mine like once every 2 weeks, but then again I was never a daily FB user anyway.

If he's not talking under oath, there's no point in listening. Zuck has proven over the past eight years, every time he's been caught, to not care about our privacy.
