According to officials, Mr Hancock sought assurances United Kingdom citizens' data was no longer at risk and that they would be given more control over their data in future - including making it easier to transfer their data to other platforms if they chose.
"There will always be a version of Facebook that is free", Zuckerberg told the hearing. In his opening remarks at US Congress, he said: "Facebook is an idealistic and optimistic company". And he did finally say, yes, we do track users when they log off, both for security purposes and for advertising purposes. "Don't consider Facebook to be media company or financial institution". He endorsed greater privacy controls on the internet philosophically but avoided supporting any specific regulation when questioned.
"Do not consider ourselves as a financial institution though we help people send each other money".
Facebook said you can prevent apps and websites from misusing your information. He said,"We limit a lot of data that we collect and use".
"Users provide every detail of their life to Facebook and ..."
Allegations of anti-conservative bias on the platform was a recurrent theme on Wednesday, with conservative lawmakers repeatedly accusing Zuckerberg's site of censorship.
ANNA ESHOO: Was your data included in the data sold to the malicious third parties - your personal data? Facebook has since shut off the ability of apps to gather such data, but Zuckerberg said on Wednesday it will take "many months" to complete an audit of other apps to determine if they also improperly used data.
The Michael Cohen Raid
Cohen is under investigation, according to Yahoo News , for "possible bank fraud, wire fraud and campaign finance violations". Daniels, who initially denied a sexual relationship with the president, is now seeking depositions from both Trump and Cohen.
Cambridge Analytica suspended its previous CEO, Alexander Nix, one day after he alluded to tactics of the firm that may have violated USA campaign finance laws in a hidden-camera expose by Britain's Channel 4.
"You want to present people with the information about what they might be doing and give them the relevant controls in line, at the time that they're making those decisions, not just have it be in the background sometime, or make a one-time decision", he said.
The company said it will do that by turning off access for unused apps, by encouraging people to manage the apps they use.
"So we do need to understand whether there was something bad going on at Cambridge University overall that will require a stronger reaction from us".
The senators asked Zuckerberg how he'd feel if his personal information was compromised.
He responded that they don't think about what they do as censoring, explaining that "there are types of content like terrorism that I think that we all agree we do not want to have on our service". Zuckerberg reponded, "I believe everyone owns their own content online and that's the first line of our terms of service, if you read that".
The questions asked by the House Committee were on the whole more political than questions asked by senators yesterday. "There is absolutely no directive in any of the changes we make to have a bias in anything we do". On a question, if Facebook has a political bias, he said the platform's goal was not to engage in political speech.
After facing United States congress yesterday following the Cambridge Analytica data scandal, Facebook founder and CEO Mark Zuckerberg has become a living meme for all the wrong reasons - most notably, because people reckon he may actually be a robot.
