Did he tell everything he knew? On Tuesday, he took questions for almost five hours in a US Senate hearing without making any further promises to support new legislation or change how the social network does business, foiling attempts by senators to pin him down.

Most recently, chief executive and founder Mark Zuckerberg has faced several days of questioning by the US Congress, though the value of the results has been questionable. Buschon explained that he and his mother had a conversation about her deceased brother and later on Facebook, his mother saw a memorial photo collage of her brother come up.

Wired collated a complete list of all the questions Facebook's CEO said he would have to refer to his team.

Whether Facebook employees were working with Cambridge Analytica to refine Trump campaign tactics during the 2016 presidential election.

"We're not", Long told Zuckerberg after issuing his warning about Congressional overreaction.

- What are your thoughts on the Facebook data leak?

The 33-year-old billionaire has apologised numerous times and promised to make meaningful reforms to protect data privacy.

Zuckerberg repeated an apology offered in the previous hearing that Facebook made a "big mistake" by not taking "a broad enough view" of its responsibility. Another 35 percent had changed their settings on the platform, presumably to expose less of their personal data, while 28 percent never trusted Facebook to begin with.

"It's collected for growth reasons as well", he said, referring to the friend suggestions that pops up for first time users, which is collected from their phone contacts and other areas which includes non-users as well.
