Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg today called on reporters to answer questions about the company's major changes to its third-party application developer platform, as well as the revelation that up to 87 million users – Not 50 million as previously thought: Cambridge Analytica could have misused their personal data.
Slate Will Oremus asked if the chief executive himself would have used applications such as the one designed by Cambridge psychology professor Aleksandr Kogan, called "thisisyourdigitallife", which diverted data from around 270,000 users and all his friends, which Kogan then packed and sold.
The CEO's response was sincere and likely to enter Zuck's iconic dating pantheon, which also includes his original business card slogan ("I'm CEO, bitch") and "move fast and break things." "I certainly use many applications, I am a powerful user of the internet," Zuckerberg replied. Like a growing number of people, Zuck is extremely online, with precautions. Here is Zuckerberg recording his webcam.
Zuckerberg says he recommends that people use "best practices" such as 2fa to protect themselves online, and beware of social engineering attacks, rather than abstaining altogether from online services. He did not respond if he uses personally and ad blocker or VPN.

A use of Internet power, in fact. The journalists on the call were briefly thrown into a serious discussion about the integrity of the elections, the hate speech and the privacy of the data.

"Internet advanced user" – new Twitter biography
– Dan Frommer (@fromedome) April 4, 2018  An intrepid mind even suggested putting this sentence on a t-shirt:
Now I am going to refer to myself as an advanced user of the Internet and could print this on a tbh t-shirt https: // t .co / 7grRYSXTpK
