(RNN) – Mark Zuckerberg, are you listening? Many of the billion people who regularly use your social media platform are in a bit of a Facebook fit.

A group calling itself Faceblock wants all Facebook users to give it up for a day.

“If millions of us refuse to use Facebook for just 24 hours on 11 April when Mark Zuckerberg is due to testify to the US House Energy and Commerce Committee, and post about why we’re doing it, together we’ll send a powerful message that Facebook must do better,” the group said on its website.

“Our governments must also do more to protect our privacy, regulate digital monopolies, defend our civil rights and safeguard democracy.”

Many were already making the rounds ahead of Wednesday.

Facebook is reeling in the aftermath of a pair of controversies.

The social media giant is grappling with a government report that says Russia tried to meddle with U.S. elections in part by using Facebook.

Facebook is also facing a privacy scandal after it was revealed a data firm Cambridge Analytica misused data from up to 87 million users. Zuckerberg is scheduled to testify before Congress on Tuesday and Wednesday.
