In the wake of Facebook's data breach scandal, its embattled CEO Mark Zuckerberg posted a message on his page on the social networking website just an hour before he headed into the joint committee hearing at the Capitol Hill in Washington, United States of America.

"In an hour I'm going to testify in front of the Senate about how Facebook needs to take a broader view of our responsibility -- not just to build tools, but to make sure those tools are used for good," Zuckerberg wrote. "I will do everything I can to make Facebook a place where everyone can stay closer with the people they care about, and to make sure it's a positive force in the world."

He also included a photo of the Capitol building, where the hearing is taking place.
