April 11 (WTN); When Facebook was launched in 2004 by Mark Zuckerberg, along with fellow Harvard College students and roommates,  they could never have imagined that Facebook would influence life of  2.2 billion people worldwide and would be in a position to influence elections in many countries.

Testifying before US senators in the wake of Facebook's data breach scandal and foreign interference in election,  Zuckerberg told the senators that Facebook will do everything to ensure fair polling takes place in India and other countries.
Mark Zuckerberg appeared in front on US senators after Facebook–Cambridge Analytica data scandal which involved collection of personally identifiable information of 87 million Facebook users that Cambridge Analytica began collecting in 2014 to allegedly influenced voters during the 2016 US Presidential elections.

"I started Facebook, I run it, and I'm responsible for what happens here."  "It's clear now that we didn't do enough to prevent these tools from being used for harm as well. That goes for fake news, foreign interference in elections, and hate speech, as well as developers and data privacy. We didn't take a broad enough view of our responsibility, and that was a big mistake. It was my mistake, and I'm sorry," Zuckerberg said while testifying before US senators.

Senator Ted Cruz who represents the State of Texas in the United States Senate said he believes many Americans are "deeply concerned" about what he called Facebook's "pervasive pattern of bias and political censorship." He also questioned why Facebook shut down certain pages it deems controversial, naming examples such as as "Chick-fil-A appreciation day" page, a post from a Fox News reporter, and Trump supporter Diamond and Silk's Facebook page.







Interestingly, Forbes reported that Mark Zuckerberg's fortune has risen by $2.8 billion as he spent hours answering questions from U.S. Senators. Facebook reportedly had its best trading day in two years.
