ZUCKERBERG DUCKS POINTED QUESTIONS FROM THE EU PARLIAMENT

• https://www.wired.com, ISSIE LAPOWSKI

But the hearing, which followed an odd format in which Zuckerberg reserved his answers until all of the members' questions had been asked, devolved into chaos, as Zuckerberg sped through his responses and promised to follow up later with details.

The 90-minute hearing stood in stark contrast to the nearly 10 hours of questioning Zuckerberg withstood on Capitol Hill last month. Members of the European Parliament instead held a shotgun round of questioning, skewering Zuckerberg about Facebook's mishandling of user data, its handling of hate speech and cyberbullying, the creation of so-called "shadow profiles" about non-users, and its readiness for the EU's General Data Protection Regulation, which will be implemented Friday. One member in particular asked Zuckerberg whether he'd like to be remembered as "the genius who created a digital monster that's destroying our democracies and societies."
