As Mark Zuckerberg’s Facebook evidences extends on, a quick interchange with Senator John Neely Kennedy of Louisiana produced few of the day’s more memorable sound bites.
Sen. Kennedy started his short interchange, “Mr. Zuckerberg, I come in peace. I don’t want to vote to have to regulate Facebook, but by God I will.”
He added, “In fact, a lot of that depends on you. I’m a little disappointed in this hearing today, I just don’t feel like we’re connecting.”
From there Kennedy railed in opposition to Zuckerberg for how Facebook conveyed its user data policies with users of the product.
The Republican senator went on, “Your user agreement sucks.”
The statement said, “The purpose of that user agreement is to cover Facebook’s rear end, it’s not to inform your users about their rights. Now you know that, and I know that. I’m going to suggest to you that you go back home and rewrite it.”
From here on, the interchange with an understandably tired Zuckerberg was a lit uneven. Kennedy’s knowledge of the Facebook product appeared to be a lit restricted and Zuckerberg’s incapacity to answer with something not starting with “Senator, we already…” didn’t assist.
