Facebook is in a pickle. Its founder, Mark Zuckerberg, who is scheduled to testify before Congress this week regarding the privacy of users’ personal data, is on a mea culpa tour. In media interviews, he has said that he is even open to some regulation.

"How to Make Facebook More Accountable" is from the April 10, 2018 Opinion section of The New York Times. It was written by Mark Penn and narrated by Kristi Burns.
