Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg has reportedly testified at a Federal Trade Commission antitrust hearing this week. His virtual testimony went for two days, according to a Politico report Thursday.
“We are committed to cooperating with the US Federal Trade Commission’s inquiry and answering the questions the Agency may have,” a Facebook company spokesperson told CNET in an emailed statement.
The news comes after a report last month by The Wall Street Journal saidas part of a probe by the agency.
Facebook said last year that the FTC was investigating the company over antitrust matters. The FTC is reportedly looking into whether Facebook’s $1 billion purchase of Instagram and $19 billion acquisition of WhatsApp were a strategy to stifle competition and maintain dominance.
The FTC didn’t immediately respond to a request for comment.
