Now eight parliaments are demanding Zuckerberg answers for Facebook scandals

Facebook's founder is facing pressure to accept an invite from eight international parliaments, with lawmakers wanting to question him about negative impacts his social network is having on democratic processes globally.

The international parliaments have joined forces -- forming a grand committee -- to amp up the pressure on Facebook.
