|Awkwardness Esues As Top Democratic Senator Quizess Facebook CEO Mark by inoki247: 8:09am On Apr 12, 2018|
WASHINGTON —FacebookCEO Mark Zuckerberg got into an awkward exchange with a top Democratic senator on Tuesday when the lawmaker began asking him persbonal questions.
During theblockbuster hearing on Capitol Hill, Sen.
Dick Durbin asked Zuckerberg, "Would you be comfortable sharing with us the name of the hotel you stayed in last night?
""Um," Zuckerberg said before a long pause.
"No."The audience and panel of senators erupted inlaughter at Zuckerberg's hesitancy to answer the question, but Durbin used it to make a point about personal privacy, which was the focus of the joint hearing between the Senate'sJudiciary and Commerce committees."
If you've messaged anybody this week, would you share with us the names of the people you've messaged?" Durbin asked.
"Senator, no, I would probably not choose to do that publicly here," Zuckerberg said."I think that might be what this is all about — your right to privacy, the limits of your right to privacy, and how much you'd give away in modern America," Durbin said.

Social media and Privacy are opposing ideas.. Privacy can only be effectively managed by users of the social media platform and not the service providers..
