April 11, 2018: Testifying at a joint hearing of US senate’s judiciary and commerce committees in the wake of Facebook's data breach scandal and foreign interference in the election, Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg has told them that his company will do everything to ensure fair polling takes place in India and other countries apologized publicly for the social network’s misuse of its members’ data.

He noted that there are several important elections in 2018 in countries like India, Hungary and Brazil and his company wants to ensure protection of integrity in these elections.
Zuckerberg addressed questions raised on a broad range of issues from its use of personal data from subscribers in the light of the Cambridge Analytica privacy scandal, manipulation of media network by Russians to interfere in the 2016 elections, to the sheer size of the company and the need for regulation.
The 33-year-old billionaire also expressed regret that his company was slow in identifying the Russian operations, which allegedly benefitted the then-Presidential candidate, Donald Trump, who is now USA’s 45th president.
“The most important thing that I care about right now is making sure that no one interferes in the various 2018 elections around the world,” Zuckerberg said in reply to question about the fallout from the Cambridge Analytica data breach scandal and how Facebook planned to prevent a repeat.
In the hearings, Zuckerberg is trying to both restore public trust in his company and stave off federal regulations that some lawmakers have floated.
