Zuckerberg at Congress – level 1

16-04-2018 15:00

There are some problems with Facebook. One problem is privacy. There are breaches in privacy.

Mark Zuckerberg is the CEO of Facebook. He comes to Congress. Senators ask him about Facebook. He answers. They talk for two days.

Zuckerberg also says ‘sorry’ for the problems with privacy.

Difficult words: privacy (when you can keep some information private – secret, nobody knows about them), breach (a problem, something against the law), CEO (Chief Executive Officer – the most powerful boss at a company), Congress (part of the American government).

You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.
