Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg took a fusillade of questions during his second day of congressional testimony Wednesday, showing signs of testiness during some sharp exchanges with House lawmakers.
Zuckerberg appeared particularly on edge during a tense back-and-forth with Rep. Kathy Castor (D-Fla.), who asked about Facebook’s practice of collecting data on people who aren’t even users.
“You’re collecting medical data, correct, on people who are on the internet, whether they’re Facebook users or not?” Castor asked. “Congresswoman, yes,” Zuckerberg said in an uneasy tone, before she cut him off.
“It’s practically impossible these days to remain untracked in America, for all the good Facebook and the internet has brought,” Castor concluded. “And that’s not part of the bargain.”
