Facebook's Mark Zuckerberg Will Testify In Congress On April 11

Speaking on NBC's Today Facebook COO Sarah Sandberg conceded Facebook was guilty of a'10 out of 10 breach of their users trust when it came to data privacy

The project was put on hold after widespread outrage on Facebook's failure to protect user data prompted the company to consider working on improving its own security and privacy tools before trying to gather even more data. AggregateIQ will lose all Facebook access.

Schroepfer will give evidence on April 26, following appearances earlier in the month from Alexander Nix, the former CEO of Cambridge Analytica, and Aleksandr Kogan, the senior associate at Cambridge University, according to a statement from the United Kingdom government Friday.

Sandberg also said, in a different interview, that Facebook can not conduct such an audit because it must wait for the United Kingdom information commissioner to finishes its investigation of CA's election activity.

In an interview with "Today" co-anchor Savannah Guthrie, Sandberg again acknowledged that the company mishandled the breach that allowed Cambridge Analytica, the data analysis firm that worked with Donald Trump's 2016 presidential campaign, to harvest millions of users' information.

Facebook stopped apps from being able to take info from people's Facebook friends without the permission of those friends back in 2015.

Speaking to NBC's Today programme, Sandberg also laid the ground for her boss Mark Zuckerberg's appearance before Congress, saying he had "already apologized" and wanted to tell representatives what his firm were doing to make things right.

Expos, Mets legend Rusty Staub passes away at 73
In all, Staub hit.341 with 11 RBIs in his only postseason, a clutch and gritty performance that endeared him to Mets fans forever. On a bad Expos team in 1969, he hit.302 with 29 home runs, while using his powerful arm to produce 16 outfield assists.

"To this day, we still don't know what data Cambridge Analytica have", she told the Financial Times.

But she was clear that wasn't in the company's plans.

"We thought it had been deleted because they gave us assurances, and it wasn't until other people told us it wasn't true but. we had legal assurances from them that they deleted".

'We have a responsibility to protect people's data.

"So whether it happens to one person or a lot of people, whether it's on the front page of the newspaper or it just happens to one person, that's always a 10".

And MPs are expected to hear from senior Facebook execs in the United Kingdom about the breach soon too.
