 A joint hearing will be held in the UK and Canada.


The hearing will be held in the House of Commons on Nov. 27 on how to deal with false information and false news. Collins and Zimmer asked Zuckerberg and Facebook to respond by November 7, as heads of their respective parliamentary committees overseeing social media and digital policy. The hearing will be led by Canada and the United Kingdom, and members from other countries can also join. In March, Parliament tried to summon Zuckerberg to testify shortly after Facebook failed to stop Cambridge Analytica from obtaining user data improperly and using it for location-based advertising. After being rejected, the British Parliament said he would be formally summoned to testify on his next visit to Britain. In May this year, Zuckerberg met with European Parliamentarians and answered their questions. If the joint hearing succeeds in forcing Zuckerberg to appear, it could be an important precedent for countries outside the United States to set an example for how to deal with Facebook in the future.
