Zuckerberg replied saying that the practice was meant to help prevent malicious actors from collecting public information from Facebook users.
Larger, more dominant companies like Facebook have the resources to comply with government regulation, he said, but "that might be more hard for a smaller startup to comply with".

Zuckerberg will take questions from the House Energy and Commerce Committee. In one case, they asked about Facebook's blocking of conservative vloggers Diamond and Silk as "unsafe". Variety reports that Facebook initially donated $200k to a campaign against the bill, but has now changed its mind.
