Watch: Mark Zuckerberg's testimony to Senate Judiciary and Commerce Committees


Mark Zuckerberg is scheduled to appear before a joint hearing of the Senate Judiciary and Commerce Committees today.The hearing will focus on the use of and protection of Facebook user data.

The public grilling, coming in the wake of the Cambridge Analytica scandal, could be a turning point for the social media behemoth and its young founder, which has largely avoided government regulation in its 15-year existence.

On Monday, the House Committee on Energy and Commerce posted Zuckerberg's prepared testimony, in which the 33-year-old billionaire said his company needed to do more to protect the privacy of its users.

"We didn't take a broad enough view of our responsibility and that was a big mistake," Zuckerberg said in the testimony. "It was my mistake, and I'm sorry. I started Facebook. I run it, and I'm responsible for what happens here."
