Facebook is implementing the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) standard for European users next month, and some of its rules will be extended to United States and other users later, he confirmed. We use the data that people put into the system in order to make them more relevant.
The marathon 10 hours of questioning was one of the biggest spectacles in Congress in recent memory, followed blow by blow on social media under the hashtags #ZuckerBowl and #ZuckUnderOath. Every click you make, every emoji you send, every photo you upload, every place you visit while the Facebook app is installed in your phone, on occasions even every call you make and message you send, is recorded by Facebook.

"In general we collect data on people who are not signed up for Facebook for security purposes", Zuckerberg said.
Democratic Representative Debbie Dingell expressed frustration with Zuckerberg's frequent promises to get back to lawmakers later in writing.
The social network replies, "No. Facebook is a free site and will never require that you pay to continue using the site". You didn't know that the FTC doesn't have fining. "You don't even know how many kinds of information you're logging".
