Facebook's Zuckerberg bound for Brussels

Zuckerberg will meet with European parliament in private next week
Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg is expected to speak with leaders of the European parliament next week about the data protection scandal that has engulfed his company but might avoid a public testimony like the one he endured in the U.S.
This after revelations that political consultancy Cambridge Analytica improperly accessed details of millions of Facebook users.
While Zuckerberg testified last month to the U.S. Congress, he had always been noncommittal on his appearance in Europe, sending his chief technical officer to speak to the British parliament and delaying confirmation of any visit to Brussels.
But the decision to hold the meeting with the European Parliament behind closed doors has angered others. The social networking company reported $1.69 earnings per share (EPS) for the quarter, beating analysts' consensus estimates of $1.25 by $0.44.
The anonymised data of approximately 3 million Facebook users has reportedly been published on a poorly protected website.
He might get tougher questions in Brussels, where an assertive new European data protection law comes into effect on May 25.
The closed-door meeting with the Parliament's most senior deputies will anger European lawmakers who were hoping to give Mr Zuckerberg a grilling similar to his 10-hour interrogation in US Congress last month.
