Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg has agreed to answer questions from Congress in two separate Capitol Hill hearings. 

Zuckerberg faces members of the U.S. Senate today and the House of Representatives on Wednesday to answer questions about protecting user data.

The hearings follow the news that the data-mining and political consulting firm Cambridge Analytica obtained personal information of up to 87 million Facebook users. The firm is accused of using that information for political advertising in 2016.
