Facebook users in Tucson follow Zuckerburg testimony in D.C.

TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

Brandon Bruce followed along with the Opening Day ceremonies at Wrigley Field on cell his phone from Tucson.

Sitting in a downtown café on his day off, Bruce had his phone plugged into the wall to save his battery. It was a brief break from checking Facebook.

"Yeah I check it everyday," he said "It's really hard not to be. It's the norm now."

Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerburg was out of his normal wardrobe Tuesday as he testified in a suit before Congress. Bruce wondered what Zuckerburg would say about recent data concerns involving a reported 87 million users.

Bruce already double-checked his preferences and settings, but he admits that he might not be taking the issue as seriously as he should be.

"I double checked once and that's about it," he said. "I don't think any of us are all that worried but we should be. That's the thing, it's a big deal."

But a big enough deal to delete his account? Bruce said he wants to hear Zuckerburg's response to reports of Russia using the social media site to interfere with the 2016 election.

"I'd probably delete it then. I don't need it," said Bruce. "I remember when we didn't have Facebook, so, it was a good time."
