Mark Zuckerberg, the billionaire founder and chief executive of Facebook, is facing a much tougher crowd on the House side of Capitol Hill in his second day of congressional testimony.

Lawmakers on both side of the aisle grilled Mr. Zuckerberg over his company’s handling of user data and were particularly focused on the platform’s privacy settings, which put the onus on users to protect their privacy.

• Representative Frank Pallone, a New Jersey Democrat, pressed Mr. Zuckerberg on whether Facebook would agree or refuse to change Facebook’s default settings to minimize collection and use of users’ data.

While Tuesday’s Senate hearing contained tough questions, the lawmakers were generally deferential to Mr. Zuckerberg. That is less the case in the House, where lawmakers have repeatedly pointed their fingers at Mr. Zuckerberg and expressed their “disappointment” with his answers.

• Mr. Zuckerberg, wearing a blue suit and tie, has remained calm and respectful in answering the questions. However, he has more frequently told lawmakers he is unsure what their question means when being asked to give direct answer.

I watched a couple hours on YouTube so I could fast-forward through the breaks and such.   

I have to say that several of the politicians on both sides licked Zuckerberg's balls and threw him softball questions/comments.   

Zuckerberg lied about Diamond & Silk.   Assuming that nothing changed since last night when I went to bed, they still haven't heard from Facebook about being banned from the site.   

Of course, Zuckerberg only agreed to go in front of Congress if it was NOT under oath. 

He also didn't answer in open session any questions he didn't like.  He said he would reply later in writing.
