Facebook Inc Chief Executive Mark Zuckerberg has told lawmakers that his own personal data was included in that of 87 million or so Facebook users that was improperly shared with political consultancy Cambridge Analytica.

However, he denied congress members’ suggestions that users do not have enough control of their data on Facebook in the wake of the privacy scandal at the world’s largest social media network. “Every time that someone chooses to share something on Facebook, there is a control. Right there. Not buried in the settings somewhere but right there,” the 33-year-old internet magnate told the US House of Representatives Energy and Commerce Committee.

Zuckerberg faced broad concerns from members of Congress about how Facebook shares user data. “How can consumers have control over their data when Facebook does not have control over the data?” asked Representative Frank Pallone of New Jersey, the ranking Democrat on the Energy and Commerce committee. “In principle, I think that makes sense, and the details matter, and I look forward to having our team work with you on fleshing that out,” Zuckerberg said.
