The compensation costs include the security provided at Zuckerberg's home and during travel and the expense incurred from his private air travel.
When he was asked "And you commit today that Facebook will extend the same protections to Americans that Europeans will receive under the GDPR?" by Rep. Janice Schakowsky, Zuckerberg answered with a "yes" but further questioning and pressing showed that might not be the case exactly.
"Mr. Zuckerberg, you've said you're sorry".
PM Modi presents a pair of slippers to a tribal woman
Chhattisgarh Chief Minister Raman Singh and Health Minister J P Nadda were also present on the occasion. He said the government was committed to protecting their rights.
The founder of social networking giant continued to earn a base salary of $1 with no bonuses or stock awards. One little-publicised but very important development was Facebook's move to shut down its Partner Categories, a feature that allowed marketers to target ads across Facebook's platforms using third-party data provided by data brokers. The incident wiped off billions from Zuckerberg's wealth while Facebook's stock prices slumped in a week. Assuming she is correct, this is rather interesting because ever since Facebook disclosed the data abuse by Cambridge Analytica, they have taken various steps to make it easier for users to adjust their privacy settings, but apparently not many users are taking them up on it. Hypothetical situations proposed by Congress were shut down by Zuckerberg, stating that there is a "core misunderstanding" of how Facebook works in regard to user information. The former head of the UN's global telecommunications regulator has said governments should "regard the internet as basic infrastructure - just like roads, waste and water".

I remember what a huge hate figure Bill Gates was for most of the time that he actually ran Microsoft, another runaway success story.
The Senators and Representatives themselves seemed to have limited ideas either as to how to regulate Facebook specifically and data privacy more generally. Most of the Senators had trouble grappling with this comment, since it flies in the face of most coverage of Facebook's privacy issue. Other information comes from "cookies", small files stored via a browser and used by Facebook and others to track people on the internet, sometimes to target them with ads.
Last year, Facebook generated about $19.5 billion in US and Canada ad revenue from its average monthly active users of more than 235 million, working out to about $82 each.
Sadly, when two days of hearings with Zuckerberg - in a suit, not the usual T-shirt - were done, neither we nor Congress knew much more about the social network's failures or efforts to protect our privacy. Right now we are in the midst of a general election and you know people get passionate in the Caribbean. The vast majority of members are no longer receiving notification of any kind that we are holding Facebook Live sessions. And, I would guess that for all the perceived slowness and outright denials he has been assiduously trying to manage all the flack around Facebook. In the end, despite Zuckerberg's protests, Facebook feels like it pretty much has the monopoly.
