Zuckerberg Gets a Crash Course in Charm. Will Congress Care?

• nytimes.com By By KEVIN ROOSE, CECILIA KANG

That's when Mark Zuckerberg, the company's chief executive, will swap out his trademark gray T-shirts for a suit and tie, and embark on a two-day marathon of testimony on Capitol Hill. His goal? To apologize for Facebook's missteps, reassure Congress that Facebook intends to stop foreign powers from using its service to meddle in American elections and detail the company's plans to better protect its users' privacy.

In preparation for Mr. Zuckerberg's testimony, his first such appearance, Facebook has spent the last couple of weeks trying to transform its public image from a defiant, secretive behemoth into a contrite paragon of openness, announcing a string of new privacy and anti-abuse measures and making company executives available for numerous interviews.
