Facebook boss Mark Zuckerberg arrived to meet European Union lawmakers on Tuesday ready to apologise for a massive data leak, in his latest attempt to draw a line under a scandal that has rocked the world’s biggest social media network, APA reports quoting Reuters.

 

Zuckerberg agreed to meet leaders of the European Parliament to answer questions about how political consultancy Cambridge Analytica improperly got hold of the personal data of 87 million Facebook users, including up to 2.7 million in the EU.

 

According to pre-released remarks, Zuckerberg will say it has become clear “over the last couple of years that we haven’t done enough to prevent the tools we’ve built from being used for harm as well.”
