The new program "will reward people with first-hand knowledge and proof of cases where a Facebook platform app collects and transfers people's data to another party to be sold, stolen or used for scams or political influence", product security chief Collin Greene said in a statement.

Even Mark Zuckerberg has limits on what he's willing to share.

A blockbuster Senate hearing tonight turned super awkward when the spotlight turned on the entrepreneur's own privacy.

However, a series of questions that exposed senators' lack of understanding of how Facebook works did little to put Zuckerberg under pressure.

Mr Zuckerberg said he has not been among those interviewed by Mr Mueller's office.

"Senator, I think that this is a really hard question". Mark said, "I believe deeply in what we are doing and I know that when we address these challenges, we'll look back and view helping people connect and giving more people a voice as a positive force in the world".

On the subject of fake news, Zuckerberg said one of his "greatest regrets" in running the company was its slowness at uncovering and acting against disinformation campaigns by Russian trolls during the U.S. election. He also said that the firm will be increasing resources to investigate apps and take appropriate actions. "We've come a long way since then".

"We expected them to do a number of more traditional cyber-attacks, which we did identify and notify the campaigns that they were trying to hack into them".

He said the Russian campaign of disinformation had been discovered "right around the time" of the USA presidential election, and said the company had developed "new AI tools" to identify fake accounts responsible. The chief executive also stressed that Facebook is in an "arms race" with Russian Federation and that the company will work on finding fake accounts that are trying to expose data. "I will do everything I can to make Facebook a place where everyone can stay closer with the people they care about, and to make sure it's a positive force in the world".

Speaking during his testimony in front of the US Congress, he was asked if Facebook would always remain a "free" product to which he responded by saying, "There will always be a version of Facebook that is free". "They're going to keep getting better", he said.
