Jim Cramer
It's not well known among the analysts, who are too old to use this kind of thing, but this app, as of [Wednesday], is topping the '148 Free iPhone Apps' list ahead of Instagram and, more important, ahead of the enemy, Snapchat. Let's just say that [tbh] seems like a gateway to Instagram that detours you from Snap, and for $100 million, once it's blown out in the Facebook ecosystem, it seems like money well spent.feedback

Jessica Magyar

My husband, Chris, thought the video went viral after it reached 200 shares, but I told him we needed thousands of shares to go viral! Then he gave up and said he doesn't know how going viral works.feedback

Jessica Magyar

It was obviously very funny, so I laughed, but I did feel bad and I comforted him right away. We hugged and he seemed fine, and I just showed him the toy again from a safe distance and he gave it a side-eye, but was okay with it.feedback

Jessica Magyar

I don't think there is any aspect of parenting where people will fully agree with everything you do. I just let it roll off my back and be secure in who I am as a mom, and realize not everyone is going to like what you do no matter what you do.feedback

Jessica Magyar

I was just as surprised by his reaction as he was surprised by the toy! It was definitely not what I thought would happen with him. He likes to be scary and growl at people, and scare everyone, so I thought he would find it funny!feedback

Jessica Magyar

He loves to be funny, so the fact that we watch it with him and laugh, he thinks that's the best thing.feedback

Alyssa Milano

My hope is people will get the idea of the magnitude, of just how many people have been affected by this in the world, in our lifetimes, in this country. The most important thing that it did was to shift the conversation away from the predator and to the victim.feedback

Alyssa Milano

Really what's happening here is giving women the opportunity to come forward without having to go into detail about their stories if they don't want to. To see the numbers go up minute by minute, I get tears in my eyes thinking about it.feedback

Randi Weingarten - American Federation of Teachers

Gov. Christie and his appointees really didn't care about respecting educators or making Newark public schools better, so they ignored the aspects of the then-new contract that enabled teacher voice and professionalism. Additionally, they out-and-out refused to honor some of the compensation provisions. Sadly, they just wanted the Facebook money, and they used state control to put testing over teaching and learning and to close schools. State control didn't work in Newark, and it's time for the state to get out of the business of running school districts elsewhere.feedback

Emilio Ferrarae

Bots are much more active than humans. That's a much more important statistic that Twitter does not release.feedback

Michael Pachter - Wedbush Securities

One reason advertisers are skeptical of Twitter is they're not sure who is advertising to.feedback

Michael Zaydel

I'm not worried about it. If your next post gets 1,000 shares I'll turn myself in with a dozen doughnuts and that's a promise.feedback

Laura Gianino

I worry that some women will learn, like I did, that saying #MeToo attracts people determined to discount your assault.feedback

Regina Dugan - Facebook

It sounds impossible. But it's closer than you may realize.feedback

Marya Jansen-Gruber

I think I'm speaking out now because of the current political climate. Now more than ever people around the world, men in particular, need to see what we women have to deal with. They need to see that there is a problem that must not be denied or hidden. I'm raising a daughter who is going to have to deal with many of the same problems that I face. The situation in this world for women is not improving as much, or as fast, as it should.feedback

Martha Armstrong

I was in a pea jacket in my car. That's still happening. What difference does it make what I'm wearing? Something has to change.feedback

Martha Armstrong

I was raped by a stranger when I was 20 years of age when I worked and went to college in Atlanta. That was almost 49 years ago and, at that time, the advice du jour was 'Don't tell anyone!' But I did. I reported it to the police. In addition to raping me, he also stole my driver's license, student ID and the cash I had in my wallet. This happened on a Friday. On Monday, he called me twice at work and I freaked out and broke down. I took a week off work and a month later my boss fired me because I was 'too nervous and jumpy' at work. Plus, I wouldn't sleep with him.feedback

Sam Altman

I do know that the tech backlash is going to be strong. We have more and more concentrated power and wealth. People "are understandably uncomfortable with that.feedback

Bill Maris

The companies that used to be fun and disruptive and interesting and benevolent are now disrupting our elections.feedback

Nicola Biondo

They use the term Great Powers, never specifying who those powers are.feedback

Laura Bononcini - Facebook

The program is part of an international effort. Education and media literacy are a crucial part of our effort to curb the spread of false news, and collaboration with schools is pivotal.feedback

Laura Boldrini

Fake news drips drops of poison into our daily web diet and we end up infected without even realizing it. It's only right to give these kids the possibility to defend themselves from lies.feedback

Joey Levin

In a lot of ways I'd say it hasn't changed. I've been around the internet long enough, and the first thing we used to ask in every meeting when I started was, Why won't Microsoft do your business?' Then six years later it was, Why doesn't Google do it?' Now it's a combination of why can't Facebook, Google, Apple or Amazon do this?feedback

Ross Feinstein - American Airlines

Our team member worked directly with Ms. McInrue Savage at the ticket counter to rearrange the items in the bag, in order to shorten the bag, which would only result in a $25 charge.feedback

Regina Dugan - Facebook

I will be leaving Facebook to focus on building and leading a new endeavor. I will be working with leadership over the next several months to ensure Building 8 makes a smooth transition into 2018. This was a difficult decision for me. Together, we have already done so much good work. And there are many people that I will miss, personally, and professionally.feedback

Ross Feinstein - American Airlines

Based on the information provided in the Facebook post by the passenger, and the statement from our team member: we applied the correct policy regarding sports items. The passenger presented herself with a bag that was over the standard bag size of 62 linear inches but containing sports equipment, her curling broom. Our agent explained to the passenger the policy on oversize bags and that she would be willing to assist the passenger by applying the sports equipment rate of $150 vs. the normal oversize charge of $200.feedback

Erin McInrue Savage

Maybe [the American Airlines agent] was just having a bad day. I understand [customer service] can be frustrating, but this didn't feel like any sort of way you want to be treated.feedback

Ross Feinstein - American Airlines

We all agree that curling is a sport, and our colleague in Phoenix never stated that curling was 'not a sport,' . Our colleague is a former gymnast and coach, and has great respect for all athletes.feedback

Chass CB Lateo

This is so very very sad indeed - Herrick 10 sits high in a lot of our memories, but I always remember the cheeky, chirpy and cheerful Chris {a most courageous hero that I had the pleasure of serving alongside). The life and soul of any party (and there were a few in '40'). A lovely man; RIP my friend...see you at the Final Gun Position. My sincere condolences to all the family; such sadness.feedback

Harry Wright

I'm an ex-gunner (Artillery not Arsenal). I didn't know Chris, but I met your Dad a few times in Roadshow Music, Stirling with Ted Christopher. Sadly, few people realise what Chris went through, and no matter how strong you are, it does affect you. Please pass on my sincere condolences to your Dad and all the family. I hope you find peace.feedback

Casey Michel

Heart of Texas" grew into the most popular Texas secession page on Facebook. It was run by the Russians.feedback

Fredrik Eklund

It always felt natural to have kids, therefore very unnatural when we felt like I wasn't allowed to. It felt like every time I went onto Facebook or Instagram, all that I could see were these smiling babies on my feed. He's also really been mindful and reminded me that what we're going through has been hard, but you can't just take the good without the bad. It's all of it – the entirety of it is what makes it so amazing.feedback

Frank Bruni

It’s odoriferous. It’s insidious. It’s America.feedback

Justin Hanley

Clearly if somebody is feeding a dog pizza they weren't equipped to handle a dog in the first place. She was skittish at first, but super sweet.feedback

Wilbur Ross

Tax reform will result in a system at least as progressive as current law.feedback

Lauren Taylor

The 'Me Too' thing has had a transformative affect that is more complex than people probably thought in the beginning. Women are disclosing that they've been harassed, attacked or abused, sometimes for the first time, and if it isn't for the first time, it's for the first time this publicly. The sheer number are unbelievable, and a lot of men are saying, Really, that many?feedback

Mayim Bialik

As a person who's kind of more a traditional feminist in terms of my definition, I believe that women have a unique power, all kinds of women, to help others be free from the bonds of race class and gender. Even if disagree about certain things, we can work together to build that kind of society that we all want to live in and that women deserve to live in.feedback

Mayim Bialik

I'm a human being, and there's a lot that I've chosen not to share, but absolutely I am deeply, deeply hurt if any women who has been assaulted – or man – thinks that in any way I was victim-blaming. In 900 words, I did the best I could to describe an entire, very complicated dynamic that is really best left for a thesis or an hourlong talk.feedback

Mayim Bialik

I think there are wonderful ways for young girls and young boys to have a creative outlet and to experience the beauty of acting and performance, but in an organized industry, that's not something I would want to deal with as a parent – and in particular for girls, where the pressure is so different. I don't know if that's the place that I would want my daughter to be, but like I said, it's not the place that I want my son to be either.feedback

Mayim Bialik

This Harvey Weinstein thing has touched a nerve for so many of us. I would like to find productive ways for us to work together to find ways that we can all feel empowered and protected despite what is going on.feedback

Mayim Bialik

That is absolutely not what my intention was, and I think that it is safe for me to start this conversation by saying there is no way to avoid being the victim of assault by what you wear or the way you behave. I really do regret that this became what it became, because literally I was trying to speak about a very specific experience I had in a very specific industry – I was not looking to speak about assault and rape in general. The only people who are responsible for their behavior in assault are the predators who are committing those horrendous acts.feedback

Mayim Bialik

I'm theoretically allowed to very prominently tease that I have written a book specifically about boys and their responsibility. That is a huge component of what is going on. … I also think it's important to point out … it's on men and it's on women to protect each other, and anyone who sees something needs to be conscious of a responsibility and an obligation to report that.feedback

Mayim Bialik

I know that I confuse a lot of people, even people closest to me. I really do identify as a bleeding heart liberal, but I am also a social conservative. Doesn't mean that I believe in legislating what other people should wear or act, but there is a broad experience of A, being human and B, being female, and I do appreciate the right to have beliefs about women's behavior or feminism that may not be popular, but I do hope to convey that I really am trying to come from a place of compassion and love and understanding to build a bigger conversation.feedback

Mayim Bialik

But I'm very grateful that I had [my mother] as an example. … She was really ahead of her time, and I'm grateful that she also taught me to love being a domestic person – she taught me to cook and clean and darn socks, and I ironed handkerchiefs as part of my childhood duties. So those were also the values that I was raised with. And as we've seen, there's such a broad definition of what it means to be a woman, of what it means to be feminist. I don't feel conflict about that. I'm a very strong woman – I also like to iron a handkerchief.feedback

Grant Cardone - The New York Times

Never reduce a target. Instead, increase actions. When you start rethinking your targets, making up excuses, and letting yourself off the hook, you are giving up on your dreams!feedback

JK Rowling

Failure is so important. We speak about success all the time. It is the ability to resist failure or use failure that often leads to greater success. I've met people who don't want to try for fear of failing.feedback

Leroy Virgil

This person contacted me on Facebook and said he'd set up a tour for me. I went over there for about a month, just lived with them and played a couple shows. I'd eat with the family and even go to work with him. He was a garbage man.feedback

Anna Walsh

Two simple words appeared over and over on social media starting Sunday: me too.feedback

Carter Worth - Cornerstone Macro

Even as the top five stocks have gone up, their basic relative performance to the market has been down, and that has been the problem with FANG. But [Facebook] in particular looks as if it's going to come to life.feedback

Carter Worth - Cornerstone Macro

Facebook is in a well-defined ascending wedge, and the presumption is after having bounced perfectly three times off the rising trend line, you're in a position to get a breakout. So I like Facebook here. It is just below its July 27 high. I'm going to make the bet that it will in fact exceed that high.feedback

Mayim Bialik

What I'm talking about specifically is the culture of Hollywood, the way that women are encouraged to present themselves and the way that men encourage women to present themselves. For me, I feel protected in my industry more when I keep parts of me private than if I did not do that. That may not be true for all women. … For some women, protecting parts of yourself in terms of how we dress gives a feeling of comfort and a layer of protection, but it does not make you immune to assault.feedback

Sheryl Sandberg - Facebook

A lot of what we allow on Facebook is people expressing themselves, that means you allow other people to say things that you don't like and go against your core beliefs.feedback

Chamath Palihapitiya

I would take that money during the week and I would kind of go to these charity casinos and play blackjack. And I was a card counter back then. So I'd be spinning up my money. I didn't have a bedroom. I didn't have a bed. I had a mattress, and we used to keep it in the closet of the hallway. I used to take it out, sleep in the living room, put it back. I will have met some of the smartest people in the world, and I'll be in the game. And I will have learned something about myself, whether I can do something at a really early-stage scale.feedback

Chamath Palihapitiya

Most of the scenarios were less than [I would make at the venture firm], but there were a few scenarios where I could make a case that it could be equivalent to what I would make at Mayfield over a four-year period, and in a very small number of cases it would be in excess.feedback

Denise Young Smith - Apple

There can be 12 white, blue-eyed, blond men in a room and they're going to be diverse, too, because they're going to bring a different life experience and life perspective to the conversation.feedback

Denise Young Smith - Apple

Our commitment at Apple to increasing racial and gender diversity is as strong as it's ever been.feedback

Jeremy Corbyn

Nobody should ever feel alone, isolated, at risk because of their faith, the clothing they choose to wear, the lifestyle they lead.feedback

Jeremy Corbyn

If you're a woman alone and you've been abused in the street, or abused where you live or abused anywhere at all, you've taken a big step in going to tell the police about it … There must then be an appropriate response by the police to acknowledge and understand the seriousness of the crime.feedback

Mayim Bialik

I'm being told my N.Y. Times piece resonated with so many and I am beyond grateful for all of the feedback. I also see a bunch of people have taken my words out of the context of the Hollywood machine and twisted them to imply that God forbid I would blame a woman for her assault based on her clothing or behavior. Anyone who knows me and my feminism knows that's absurd and not at all what this piece was about. It's so sad how vicious people are being when I basically live to make things better for women. I am doing a Facebook live with the N.Y. Times Monday morning. Let's discuss it then.feedback

Mike Schroepfer - Facebook

We're investing very heavily in technical solutions, because we're operating at an unprecedented scale.feedback

Laura Löchli

There's a general mood of distrust and political cynicism. It's a problem for our democracy, whatever the election results will be.feedback

Danielle Kayembe

I think these firms have a steep climb ahead of them to make sure that they stay on the right side of this issue.feedback

Cedric Richmond

Bonnie Watson Coleman

Our concerns will not get ignored. It's either you clean up your act, or government will have to act in that space.feedback

Eldridge Cleaver

People get all worked up on the internet and do crazy things, and some of us are the recipients of their insanity. It feels like the whole country is changing, and we're having a national nervous breakdown.feedback

Cedric Richmond

This is a very fragile moment in time for African-Americans across this country. What we needed Facebook to understand is that they play a role in the perception of African-Americans.feedback

Barbara Lee

That actually got people killed and destroyed organizations. Now look at Facebook allowing ads by the Russian government to create this kind of environment. That's a problem. I don't know if they're even aware of the history and how dangerous allowing the promotion of division and racial animosity and racial hatred can be.feedback

Scott Galloway

For 10 years, the arguments in tech were about which chief executive was more like Jesus. Which one was going to run for president. Who did the best job convincing the workforce to lean in. Now sentiments are shifting. The worm has turned. Their attitude is that anything that damages their profits is impossible for them to do. This war, like so many wars, is going to start in Europe.feedback

Mark Zuckerberg - Facebook

Trump says Facebook is against him. Liberals say we helped Trump. Both sides are upset about ideas and content they don't like. That's what running a platform for all ideas looks like.feedback

Mark Zuckerberg - Facebook

For most of the existence of the company, this idea of connecting the world has not been a controversial thing. Something changed.feedback

Leroy McCarthy

They wouldn't be able to evacuate all of FGH's patients in time before at least one of the three explosions. 14 months then it's passport and off to join my people's cause. I cannot wait to turn my back on the UK. He has also never been abroad on a lads' holiday and he wanted to leave the UK to get his life back on track.feedback

David TC Davies

I think this worrying case highlights why the law needs to be changed to be further tightened up to prevent terrorist sympathisers and people encouraging violent acts from spreading their hate-filled messages whatever their Facebook settings are. He clearly intended to encourage and incite acts and should face the full force of the law to do so.feedback

Jim Cramer

Take the money all at once. Don't let them string it out like that. You want the time value of all that cash working for you. That's vital.feedback

Scott Galloway

Zuckerberg and Facebook are violating the No. 1 rule of crisis management: Overcorrect for the problem. Their attitude is that anything that damages their profits is impossible for them to do.feedback

Pierre Omidyar - eBay

The monetization and manipulation of information is swiftly tearing us apart.feedback

Stephen Dubner

If you work in an open office, you're more likely to be stressed out, less productive, and less satisfied.feedback

Mary Grace Gardner

The best answers include what goal you set, how you rallied the team to achieve that goal and how [you applied] those learnings elsewhere.feedback

Melissa Tavss

The response to [those] viral videos on Facebook has been the most overwhelming. I started just bringing over recipes to my friend's house in Tupperware. I started part-time as kind of a hobby more than anything, and did catering and events for friends' weddings. That really picked up. We got a few ice cream push carts, and we were like wheeling them all over the city doing events.feedback

Barbara Lee

It was very disturbing, some of what has taken place, and we let het know that very clearly.feedback

Barbara Lee

I have many qualified constituents who would like to work in the tech sector, and systematically they are just denied these opportunities over and over again.feedback

Barbara Lee

They have got to understand, they've got to move quicker. And they've got to figure out a way to stop allowing these ads that really undermine our elections and create havoc, really, in communities by trying to create division and hostility and hatred.feedback

Dieter Waizenegger

If the board was aware of the settlements and refused to investigate and mitigate the risk, instead allowing the problem to fester, then it failed in its risk oversight function and facilitated a tone at the top that permits unethical behaviour by high performers. If the information of the settlements did not reach the board, then it failed to ensure that the proper corporate controls were in place.feedback

Mark Zuckerberg - Facebook

If I were starting now, I just would have stayed in Boston, I think.feedback

Mark Zuckerberg - Facebook

I mean, yeah, we can make a bunch of money – that's not the goal. Anyone from Harvard can get a job and make a bunch of money. Not everyone at Harvard can have a social network. I value that more as a resource more than, like, any money.feedback

Sergey Brin - Google

We expect that advertising-funded search engines will be inherently biased towards the advertisers and away from the needs of the consumers.feedback

Sergey Brin - Google

Do you know the most common feedback, honestly? It's 'What ads?' People either haven't done searches that bring them up or haven't noticed them. Or the third possibility is that they brought up the ads and they did notice them and they forgot about them, which I think is the most likely scenario.feedback

Joseph Weizenbaum

No playwright, no stage director, no emperor, however powerful, has ever exercised such absolute authority to arrange a stage or a field of battle and to command such unswervingly dutiful actors or troops.feedback

Mark Zuckerberg - Facebook

We came upon this magic number that you needed to find 10 friends. And once you had 10 friends, you had enough content in your newsfeed that there would just be stuff on a good enough interval where it would be worth coming back to the site.feedback

Joseph Weizenbaum

Bright young men of disheveled appearance, often with sunken glowing eyes, can be seen sitting at computer consoles, their arms tensed and waiting to fire their fingers, already poised to strike, at the buttons and keys on which their attention seems to be as riveted as a gambler's on the rolling dice. They exist, at least when so engaged, only through and for the computers. These are computer bums, compulsive programmers.feedback

Sheryl Sandberg - Facebook

We know we have a responsibility to prevent everything we can from this happening on our platforms ... and so we told Congress and the Intelligence committees that when they are ready to release the ads, we are ready to help them.feedback

Matthew Idema - Facebook

We want to put a basic foundation in place to allow people to message businesses and for them to get the responses that they want. We do intend on charging businesses in the future.feedback

Sheryl Sandberg - Facebook

We're very different than a media company. At our heart, we're a tech company, we hire engineers. We don't hire reporters. No one's a journalist, we don't cover the news.feedback

Peter Adeney

Instead of a physical piggy bank, my boy prefers to keep his money in the Bank of Mr. Money Mustache, a spreadsheet that contains every transaction he makes with money. To make a deposit, he just hands me some cash. To withdraw, he asks me for cash or has me buy something for him online.feedback

Lee-Ann Burger

I immediately went on social media and found a Facebook page for the Rum Cay community. A guy named Craig responded and said it was his house they were renting but they never showed up. We were able to find a couple local guys with airplanes who have basically been conducting searches for us.feedback

Suze Orman

You need to know that you are going to be secure. Go back to 2007. You lost your job, you lost everything, you were working on this tech thing and all the startups went down. Nobody had any money to invest, nobody wanted to touch anything, nobody wanted to IPO because the markets were going down and you couldn't find anything to do.feedback

Suze Orman

It's not just about the economy. What if you get sick? What if you're hit by a car? What if something happens crazy in this world? We live in the craziest world I've ever seen in my life right now. And the only way you can take craziness out of that if for you to make yourself secure.feedback

Saving in after-tax accounts is not optimal, but it does have some advantages. Taxes in retirement will be reduced because you will be drawing from accounts that have already been taxed and taxation will be at long-term capital gains rates.feedback

Sarah Gaines

The majority of mainstream media, with a few recent exceptions, has made us believe that to be fit means to be thin and 'toned,' . While we're starting to see a shift in that mindset, the comments made during the workout were a reminder that we have a ways to go.feedback

Anne Victoria Clark - Medium

Wow! Karen looks pretty tough and strong and sweaty! She looks like a person who is working very hard to achieve her goals, having left behind a situation that clearly wasn't working, headed for bigger and better things. Maybe ask her about that? But definitely don't hit on her. It looks like she could kill you with the chair you're sitting on.feedback

Jim Cramer

I do not trust the machines to do what people can do at this stage of the game.feedback

Jim Cramer

This is about the gross margins of these companies. If they have to start hiring people who are English lit. majors rather than those computer scientists out of Stanford, you would see their gross margins go down.feedback

Jim Cramer

Sheryl Sandberg - Facebook

Things happened on our platform in this election that shouldn't have happened. Especially – and very troubling – foreign interference in a democratic election. And we know that we have a responsibility to do everything we can to prevent this kind of abuse on our platform.feedback

Sheryl Sandberg - Facebook

We don't check the information posted on Facebook before people post it, and I don't think people should want us to.feedback

Sheryl Sandberg - Facebook

It was hugely important to me to see ... Hillary Clinton elected, and that didn't happen. But the role Facebook plays in elections goes beyond any one campaign, any one country. We are a platform where people come to express themselves every day. It's not just that we apologize. We're angry, we're upset, but what we really owe the American people is determination.feedback

Kathy Szeliga

Don't judge me by what someone posts on my page on Facebook. I was just quoting her. . . . She's telling us her qualifications to be governor and that she has a PhD. I wasn't opining on that; I was just putting what her words were.feedback

Sheryl Sandberg - Facebook

When it does happen and someone loses their job and is publicly embarrassed, I think that's great. Not because I want that to happen but because I think the only deterrent for other people is to see that there are disastrous consequences. There need to be those same consequences for the people that tolerate it around those people. And I think we are going to get there.feedback

Sheryl Sandberg - Facebook

It's not just about him. It's not just about the other men that do it. It's about all the people around them that know and don't do anything.feedback

People see how much they're investing in systems, but they can do a lot more in making VR development open.feedback

Roy Amara

We tend to overestimate the effect of a technology in the short run and underestimate the effect in the long run.feedback

Mark Zuckerberg - Facebook

We are legitimately excited about the future. We're committed to making it happen. People say VR is isolating and anti-social. I actually think it's the opposite. Saying VR is isolating because it's immersive is a very narrow view of the world you're all building. The most important technologies don't start off mainstream. A lot of them seem maybe even too crazy or complex to start.feedback

Sheryl Sandberg - Facebook

We don't want this kind of foreign interference. These ads are divisive, and they are down, and the pages are down, because they are from fake accounts ... a lot of them if they were from legitimate people, we would let them run.feedback

Eli Pariser

John Herrman - The New York Times

By 2014, the outlines of the Facebook-native hard-right voice and grievance spectrum were there, and I tricked myself into thinking they were a reaction/counterpart to a the wave of soft progressive/inspirational content that had just crested. It ended up a Reaction in a much bigger and destabilizing sense.feedback

Eli Pariser

The most serious political problem posed by filter bubbles is that they make it increasingly difficult to have a public argument. As the number of different segments and messages increases, it becomes harder and harder for the campaigns to track who's saying what to whom. [H]ow does a [political] campaign know what its opponent is saying if ads are only targeted to white Jewish men between twenty-eight and thirty-four who have expressed a fondness for U2 on Facebook and who donated to Barack Obama's campaign?feedback

Joseph Bernstein

This year Chanterculture found its true hero, who makes it plain that what we're seeing is a genuine movement: the current master of American resentment, Donald Trump. Everywhere you look on 'politically incorrect' subforums and random chans, he looms.feedback

Antonio García Martínez

If you'd come to me in 2012, when the last presidential election was raging and we were cooking up ever more complicated ways to monetize Facebook data, and told me that Russian agents in the Kremlin's employ would be buying Facebook ads to subvert American democracy, I'd have asked where your tin-foil hat was. And yet, now we live in that otherworldly political reality.feedback

Sheryl Sandberg - Facebook

When the ads get released, we will release the targeting for those ads. Again, we are going to be fully transparent. We are a tech company. We don't hire reporters. But we're not saying we don't have a responsibility.feedback

Mike Schroepfer - Facebook

We don't want misuse of the platform, whether that's a foreign government trying to intercede in a democracy - that's obviously not OK - or whether it's an individual spewing hate or uploading pornography.feedback

Sheryl Sandberg - Facebook
