Can Facebook be regulated?

Latest news

    After five-hours of testimony before the US congress, Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg managed to walk a fine line as he came underfire from lawmakers.

    He apologised for a range of problems that have beset Facebook, including the lack of data protection, but did not promise to support new regulations.

    Zuckerberg has been questioned by US Congress committee members over the past two days. He is to answer questions on how his company handled data in the wake of a massive users’ privacy breach.

    But what can come out of his testimony? And what steps can be taken to ensure better privacy for social media users?
