Facebook call with Mark Zuckerberg is starting now. They say it'll be 45 minutes (!).
“We're an idealistic and optimistic company and for the first decade we really focused on all the good connecting people brings” - Zuck

But in the past, "We didn't take a broad enough view of what our responsibility is...It was my mistake."
"Yesterday we took a big action by taking down Russian IRA pages targeting their home country." - Zuck
Now 15k people working on security and content review at Facebook, says Zuck
This is the first action we've taken against the IRA and Russia including taking down Russian news orgs that we determined were controlled and operated by the IRA.
"You never fully solve security." - Zuckerberg on how the company continues to increase its numbers regarding IRA
"I think what’s clear at this point is it was too flippant" - Zuck on his comments about fake news influencing the 2016 election being "crazy"
Zuck says they came up with the 87m number re: Cambridge Analytica by taking the maximum number of friends that all the affected users had during that period.
Says he's confident it's not more than 87m.
"We’re going to make all the same controls and settings avail everywhere not just in Europe" - Zuck on Reuters story about GDPR
"Different people who use FB have different interests. Some people want to share political speech they think is valued and other people feel like it's hate speech" - Zuck
Question: are you still the best person to run FB? Zuck: “Yes."
"When you're building something like Facebook that is unprecedented in the world. there are going to be things you mess up. If we’d gotten this right we would have messed something else up." - Zuck
On FB the default setting is to make your profile searchable by phone number. Zuck says: "It's reasonable to expect if you had that setting turned on, that at some point in the last several years someone has accessed your public information."
"The vast majority of the chose to share it." - Zuck. Yes, but Facebook made the default settings ~open~ and not very easy to close it.
"I wish I could snap my fingers and in 6 months or even 3 months have solved all of these issues...I do think this is a multi-year effort." - Zuck
