Nelson told reporters after his private meeting with Zuckerberg Monday that he was "highly skeptical" of Facebook's ability to address rampant privacy issues.

Congresswoman Jan Schakowsky, a Democrat on the energy and commerce committee, wrote in an op-ed that she expected Mr. Zuckerberg to provide a "detailed accounting" of how personal information was ultimately shared with Cambridge Analytica.

"We didn't take a broad enough view of our responsibility, and that was a big mistake", Zuckerberg will say.

"Yes, I am relieved, yes, because that's scary", Walker said.

Facebook Inc FB.O Chief Executive Mark Zuckerberg met US lawmakers individually on Monday and told Congress in written testimony that the social media network should have done more to prevent itself and its members' data being misused.

"The focus will be entirely forward looking".
