Mark Zuckerberg today stood up during a Senate hearing and apologized to families who say social media contributed to their children's suicide or abuse.
The Meta chief, who runs Facebook, Instagram and WhatsApp, was rebuked by Senator Josh Hawley who asked him to address the public gallery directly during the hearing of the Senate Judiciary Committee.
‘I'm sorry for everything you've all gone through,' Zuckerberg said. ‘It's terrible. No one should have to go through the things that your families have suffered.'
All were grilled by Republicans about how they protect teenagers and children on their respective apps.
