Facebook CEO and founder Mark Zuckerberg testifies during a US House Committee on Energy and Commerce hearing about Facebook on Capitol Hill in Washington, DC, April 11, 2018.

Facebook’s chief executive, Mark Zuckerberg — or perhaps more accurately, members of his staff — are going to be very busy getting through a stack of homework.

Over two days of congressional hearings this week in which Mr. Zuckerberg was barraged with questions by lawmakers over data privacy, election interference and more, the 33-year-old billionaire was often not able to provide an immediate answer. His standard response in those situations, a variation of “my team will get back to you,” was repeated so often it became an internet meme.

I Downloaded the Information That Facebook Has on Me. Yikes.

Here are all the things that Mr. Zuckerberg has committed to getting back to Congress on. Yes, it’s a long list.
