Following weeks of public and congressional pressure, Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg has agreed to testify at two congressional hearings next week. The decision marks a shift for Zuckerberg, who just last month suggested that the company's engineers and lawyers were better-equipped to answer Congress's detailed questions. What Zuckerberg seemed to miss when he gave that excuse—and what he now has an opportunity to address—is that the problems plaguing Facebook have far less to do with the company's technical flaws than with its fundamental ethos.

"If it is ever the case that I am the most informed person at Facebook in the best position to testify, I will happily do that," Zuckerberg said in an interview with WIRED last month. He is, and always has been.
