Facebook User Agreement Must Not be in Swahili - U.S. Senator

U.S. Republican Senator John Kennedy has refused to apologise after he was slammed for likening Facebook's user agreement to be written in "Swahili", claiming users were unaware of its full meaning. Kennedy grilled CEO Mark Zuckerberg at a senate hearing where the social media giant leader had to account for criticism of his site's privacy and censorship policies following the Cambridge Analytica data breach.
