Social media giant Facebook is under scrutiny over revelations that its users’ personal data was shared with Chinese technology company Huawei. Labor MP Anthony Byrne has described Facebook’s actions as "completely unacceptable". The deputy chairman of federal parliament’s joint committee on intelligence and security has also raised the possibility that Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg could be asked to appear before the committee. Zuckerberg has previously appeared before US and European legislators in the wake of the Cambridge Analytica data breach scandal.
