Was Your Facebook Information Used Or Shared By Cambridge Analytica?

US Defense Secretary James Mattis Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Gen. Joseph Dunford and Pentagon Comptroller David Norquist testify before the House Armed Services Committee in the Rayburn House Office Building on Capitol Hill

Avaaz, a political advocacy group dedicated to left-wing causes, staged the demonstration on the Capitol Lawn at 8:30 a.m. local time.

Controlling hate speech in social media has been a major concern of Jewish groups in recent years, chief among them the Anti-Defamation League, which has lobbied Facebook, Twitter, Google and others to build defenses against its proliferation.

The fallout from the scandal, and Facebook's response, will continue for some time. Cramer said he'd like to ask how Facebook's revenue model would be affected if it weren't able to use personal data to guide advertising.

Zuckerberg: "Senator, you can already delete any of the data that's there or delete all of your data".
