European lawmakers hit Mark Zuckerberg with a series of pointed questions at a hearing today. Zuckerberg responded with few new answers، CNN reported.
The Facebook CEO responded to broad themes of questions with familiar talking points about his openness to regulation and commitment to protecting elections after complaints about misinformation campaigns and data privacy.
As he did when testifying before Congress last month، Zuckerberg talked up Facebook’s investment in security and played down concerns about its potential monopoly power.
"From where I sit، it feels like there are new competitors every day،” he said.
And once again، Zuckerberg appeared uncomfortable getting into specifics around Facebook’s data collection practices.
At the end of the hearing، a member of parliament pressed Zuckerberg on Facebook’s shadow profiles، or data Facebook collects from non-users. Zuckerberg offered a brief response، then quickly tried to change the subject and return to higher level “themes.”
