Five questions that Mr Zurckerberg should be asked


Facebook has faced controversy in recent months over data privacy, reports of Russian propaganda and misinformation related to ethnic cleansing in Myanmar.




1. You’re abusing your power as a global monopoly. Why shouldn’t we break you up? Zuckerberg made the rookie error of leaving out his notes, which an AP reporter promptly snapped. One section said: “Break up FB? US tech companies key asset for America; break up strengthens Chinese companies.” Really? That’s the best you’ve got? The senators need to drive this one home hard.
2. You keep talking about Aleksandr Kogan, who harvested data for Cambridge Analytica. What about his business partner Joseph Chancellor, a Facebook employee? You haven’t mentioned Chancellor. Why? He went to work for you before the story first broke in December 2015. Does his involvement not concern you? Who knew what and when?
3. Why won’t you come to Britain, and why won’t you answer questions put to you by the UK parliament?
Please ask this, America. We’ve helped you get him before Congress. Now we need your help getting answers on what happened during the EU referendum. On what possible grounds can you justify refusing an official request to appear before MPs?(Also, why won’t you entertain interview requests from the Guardian and Observer?) 4. Why didn’t you suspend Cambridge Analytica from Facebook when you first found out it had misappropriated data in December 2015?
Last week you said it was because Cambridge Analytica didn’t use Facebook at the time, which is not true. On Tuesday you repeated it. Then after the break, you said you “mis-spoke”. So, answer the question: why didn’t you suspend the company? Why didn’t you inform users their data had been taken without their consent? Why did you – even after you knew what Cambridge Analytica had done with your data – embed your employees with the company during the Trump campaign?
5. Does Facebook track users around the web when they are not logged in? Does it track people between devices?
On Tuesday you said you didn’t know. Are you sure? Have you had a chance to catch up on your reading?

Facebook has faced controversy in recent months over data privacy, reports of Russian propaganda and misinformation related to ethnic cleansing in Myanmar.
The company has said its building out its own security team, doubling the number of eyes reviewing content by the end of the year.
Zuckerberg suggested in an "Ezra Klein Show" podcast published Monday that those decisions might be better left to an independent body.
