Zuckerberg at Congress – level 2

16-04-2018 15:00

Mark Zuckerberg spent two days at Congress last week where he answered the senators’ questions about Facebook. He also said ‘sorry’ for privacy breaches on Facebook.

One senator asked Zuckerberg if he could say the name of the hotel where he was staying. This shocked the Facebook boss and he took around 7 seconds to answer no, and the senator asked this to demonstrate the problem of privacy.

Difficult words: Congress (the part of the American government which is like the UK parliament), breach (a problem, something illegal), demonstrate (show).

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