Many of the practices ( who are about collecting personal data ) of the big companies that provide internet access are not ethical, although they are – still – legal. Maybe this is why Mark Zuckerberg, the CEO of Facebook, only mentioned the word “ethics” once during his U.S. Congress hearing.
For many who watched the hearing, the way Mark Zuckerberg responded to questions made the mystery around the way Facebook works behind the scenes even bigger. Also, the hearing showed how little law makers know about the Internet.
The same questions were repeated by the House of Representatives after they had been asked a day before, and Zuckerberg decided not to talk about Facebook’s plans for the future. The company is now dealing with a serious image crisis.
