Facebook chief executive Mark Zuckerberg’s testimony before a joint Senate panel Tuesday dragged on for hours, so if you missed much of it, we won’t blame you. But if you’re trying to catch up on the key points, we’ve drawn out a few important moments from the high-profile hearing. Here they are.

‘We’re responsible for the content’

Everyone knew that Zuckerberg would be entering the hearing with an apologetic tone; in his prepared remarks, Zuckerberg conceded that the Cambridge Analytica fiasco was “my mistake, and I’m sorry.” But Zuckerberg also went further, acknowledging for the first time that his platform is ultimately responsible for the content that appears there. That’s significant for a company that has historically presented itself as a neutral technology.

In clarifying his remarks later on, Zuckerberg highlighted how that view connects to the impression shared by some that Facebook should be considered a media company or a utility.
