You may have seen the news that Mark Zuckerberg is due to sit before members from the EU Parliament. Originally it was going to be a meeting behind closed doors but now it’ll be live streamed after the likes of ALDE leader in the European Parliament (EP), Guy Verhofstadt, voiced opposition to the closed door meeting.
While there’s a good chance you’ll be able to catch the event on your go-to TV news channel, a sure fire way to watch will be by visiting the EPTV website which will be streaming the event live from 18:15 to 19:30 Central European Summer Time (UTC+2).
A prepared statement appears to show that he will discuss alleged Russian interference in elections, fake news, and misuse of people’s information by rogue developers - all similar topics that he discussed before the U.S. Committee. The first of his two sittings in front of U.S. lawmakers was easy for Zuckerberg to handle as the questions weren’t very challenging, however, things could be a little bit more difficult today when he faces lawmakers responsible for the strong GDPR laws.
Let us know, will you be tuning in later to watch Zuck get grilled by EU lawmakers later today?
