Well, that will be quite a pile of work for Zuckerberg and his team, if he meant what he said.

Yet, when asked if his data had been improperly used, he replied: "Yes".

Still, Zuckerberg conceded in a press briefing prior to his recent testimonies in Washington, D.C that despite not noticing a significant drop in Facebook users, the recent scandals are "not good".

Whether Facebook is a politically neutral public forum. Facebook had already come under fire for its role in the proliferation of fake news on the platform during the 2016 election.
