Mark Zuckerberg is promising better protection for users after the Cambridge Analytica mess, and he made a statement during a CNN interview Wednesday night that's drawing some attention. "I actually am not sure we shouldn't be regulated," he said of Facebook, adding that it's more a question of finding the "right regulation" than in debating whether there should be regulation at all. He also said he's open to testifying before Congress, though he added a vague caveat of "if it's the right thing to do." It's all part of what the AP calls a "media mini-blitz" to shore up Facebook's reputation. Details and developments:
- Notable voice: Tim Berners-Lee, the man credited with creating the World Wide Web, sounds concerned ("this is a serious moment for the web's future") but also sympathetic and hopeful in a series of tweets, notes MarketWatch. "I can imagine Mark Zuckerberg is devastated that his creation has been abused and misused," he wrote, adding that "some days I have the same feeling." His advice to the CEO: "You can fix it. It won’t be easy but if companies work with governments, activists, academics, and web users we can make sure platforms serve humanity."
