UK Lawmakers: Facebook Failed to Fully Address Data Privacy, Fake News Questions

A British parliamentary committee said last Tuesday that Facebook CTO Mike Schroepfer was not able to fully answer the 39 questions on data privacy and fake news posed by lawmakers during last month’s hearing.

Damian Collins, chair of the Digital, Culture, Media and Sport Committee, said that it was disappointing that a company as big as Facebook would refuse to provide more detail and transparency on a number of points raised, citing in particular the company’s responses with regards to the involvement of Cambridge Analytica.

A Facebook spokesperson however, refuted the statement and said that they had provided comprehensive answers to all 39 questions and added that CEO Mark Zuckerberg will not be meeting with the committee at the present time.
