One of Senator Josh Hawley’s question was in regards to a tool called “Centra” which Facebook uses to track its users across the internet and not just on Facebook’s platform.

Watch Sen. Hawley grill Zuckerberg:
Here’s a transcript of part of their exchange:
Hawley: Centra is a tool that Facebook uses to track its users not just on Facebook but across the entire internet.

Hawley: It always amazing me Mr. Chairman how many people before this committee suddenly develop amnesia…
