Facebook CEO, Mark Zuckerberg admits his data was also exploited

During his testimony to Congress, Mark Zuckerberg revealed that he was among 87 million people whose personal information was exploited by Cambridge Analytica.

Zuckerberg made the admission while testifying before the House Committee on Energy and Commerce.

When asked Rep. Anna Eshoo (D-Calif.) if his information was sold to a third party Zuckerberg simply replied, "Yes."

He also conceded that there’ll need to be “some regulation” when it comes to Facebook and its competitors.

Facebook has recently come under fire after it was revealed that millions of people's personal information had been sold to a third party for their own use. 

Zuckerberg later added in his testimony, “I think it is inevitable that there will need to be some regulation, but you have to be careful about what it is.”
