Mark Zuckerberg's personal worth surges by £2 billion after testimony


However, according to global reports, most Facebook users had not received the notifications even on Monday night.

After the exchange, Senator Kennedy went on to say Facebook's "user agreement sucks" and that him and Zuckerberg were "not connecting".

But senators showed no sign of doing anything as useful as that, so Zuck's net worth has soared.

Meanwhile, Facebook has started notifying all the users who were affected by the Cambridge Analytica data privacy scandal that was initiated by Cambridge University Professor named Aleksandr Kogan.

"There are people in Russian Federation whose job it is to try to exploit our systems and other internet systems".

Others sued in the action, in U.S. District Court in DE, included Cambridge Analytica, SCL Group Ltd. and Global Science Research Ltd., which "obtained the Facebook user data to develop and foster political propaganda campaigns", according to the lawsuit.
