Given Zuckerberg has thrice denied requests from United Kingdom lawmakers to take questions about his platform in a public hearing we can only assume the company made the CEO's appearance in front of European Union parliamentarians conditional on the meeting being closed.
The EU and British parliaments have been calling for Zuckerberg to appear before them for weeks ever since it emerged that a company, political consultants Cambridge Analytica, had been allowed to misuse the data of millions of Facebook users.
Facebook came away largely unscathed from Zuckerberg's testimony to the U.S. Congress in April. The social networking company reported $1.69 earnings per share (EPS) for the quarter, beating analysts' consensus estimates of $1.25 by $0.44.
The data which got exposed was highly sensitive and revealed the personal details of Facebook users like their results of psychological tests. Members of the public also won't be able to form their opinions about Zuckerberg's answers to the members of the parliament.
Yet the question of whether Zuckerberg should explain himself publicly remains a point of contention.
However, Mark Zuckerberg is only set to attend a meeting behind closed doors, rather than face an open committee hearing.
Taking to Twitter, Vera Jourova, the European commissioner for justice and consumers said that it's a pity the Facebook founder does not believe all Europeans deserve to know how their data is handled by his company.

The news comes a month after the parliament invited Zuckerberg to appear before three of the assembly's committees. While Nix has testified once to the committee, lawmakers want him to give further evidence - a request he had previously declined. Collins warned Zuckerberg last month that if he does not come voluntarily, he could be issued a formal summons, which would force him to appear before the parliament when he next enters the United Kingdom.
