Mark Zuckerberg had a pretty big day yesterday. After the scandal with Cambridge Analytica, he was called to answer the questions of US Senators. Considering the importance of such an investigation (it has called into question the privacy of all Facebook users), Zuckerberg looked like he would rather be anywhere else. But let’s be honest, if you were being grilled by the numerous granddads and grandmas that make up the US Senate for a full 5 hours, your attention (or will to live) might lapse.

Mark’s robotic behaviour has left the internet howling, as have the senators themselves.

Check out the funniest memes here:

Some people have gone as far to compare Zuckerberg to the freaky changelings from the “Next Generation” series…

Yeh, you just stay hydrated over there, Zuckerberg.

Finally, the senators asked a reasonable question about Zuckerberg’s own attitude towards sharing private information. Senator Duck Durbin asked “Mr Zuckerberg, would you be comfortable sharing with us the name of the hotel you stayed in last night?” Mark replied “No”, to which the senator responded “I think that may be what this is all about. Your right to privacy.”

Since the talk, Facebook’s share price has risen by 5%, growing its net worth by £3bn. Can’t complain with that!

Mark Zuckerberg was grilled by the US senate, who asked him questions about the Cambridge Analytica scandal. His robotic manner inspired a plethora of hilarious tweets and memes.

The US senators also inspired some hilarious memes, with people suggesting that the Facebook hearing was akin to someone trying to explain technology to their grandparents.

We’ve all been there…

Mark Zuckerberg pretty much looked like he’d rather have been anywhere else.

At the hearing Zuckerberg pledged that Facebook will investigate “tens of thousands” of apps to discover if any other companies have accessed data in a similar way to Cambridge Analytica (CA).

The social network says it is in the process of letting up to 87 million users know that their information may have been accessed by CA, and in a packed room on Capitol Hill, Zuckerberg repeated his admission that the company “didn’t do enough” to stop its tools “being used for harm”.

He also said the company was in an “arms race” with Russia, warning there were people in the country tasked with finding ways to breach Facebook’s systems.
