During today’s House Energy and Commerce Committee hearing, “Facebook: Transparency and Use of Consumer Data,” Congressman Dave Loebsack took the questions that Iowans told him they wanted answers to directly to Facebook’s Founder and CEO, Mark Zuckerberg. Last week, Loebsack asked Iowans to submit the questions they would ask Mr. Zuckerberg. As a result, hundreds of questions were submitted and during the hearing, Loebsack was able to get answers to the question Iowans were interested in.

A video of Loebsack’s questions can be found here.

“I am honored to be able to bring the questions that Iowans told me they wanted answers to directly to the source. One of the main themes throughout the questions that were submitted concern the loss of trust. People want to know that they can trust Facebook and that they will actually do what it says they are doing when taking actions to protect the consumer’s data and privacy. While Facebook has moved to provide greater privacy and protection of data, there are still steps that must be taken. I look forward to working with my colleagues as we move forward and discuss ways to reassure the American people that their privacy and personal data is secure.”
