Last quote by Sheryl Sandberg

Seeing those words made me disgusted and disappointed – disgusted by these sentiments and disappointed that our systems allowed this. Hate has no place on Facebook – and as a Jew, as a mother, and as a human being, I know the damage that can come from hate. The fact that hateful terms were even offered as options was totally inappropriate and a fail on our part.feedback

The events this weekend in our country make discussions like this with our children even more timely and crucial. Every generation has to be vigilant in fighting against the type of bigotry and hatred that was displayed by the white supremacists in Charlottesville.feedback

Aug 15 2017 - Holocaust

It was a beautiful story but discussing the horrors of the Holocaust with a child is never easy. How do you tell a 10-year-old that such extreme racism and inhumanity has taken place so recently? And how do you explain why atrocities are still committed against so many people all over the world?feedback

Aug 15 2017 - Holocaust

Along with millions of others, I was so heartbroken this weekend. Yesterday on our way to camp, my daughter and I were reading the book for our mother-daughter book club. Part of the story involved the granddaughter of a WWII veteran learning more about her grandfather's service during the war and meeting a Holocaust survivor whom he had helped.feedback

The brave Heather Heyer's mother Susan Bro said she wanted her daughter's 'death to be a rallying cry for justice and equality and fairness and compassion.' Let's honor her by teaching all of our children how to honor and respect those values.feedback

We want to make sure all of us do our part to stop terrorism and so our Facebook policies are very clear. There's absolutely no place for terrorism, hate, calls for violence of any kind. Our goal is to not just pull it off Facebook but to use Artificial Intelligence and technology to get it before it's even uploaded.feedback

Jul 31 2017 - WhatsApp

If people move off those encrypted services to go to encrypted services in countries that won't share the metadata, the government actually has less information, not more. And so as technology evolves these are complicated conversations, we are in close communication working through the issues all around the world. We are working in collaboration with the other tech companies now, so if a video by a terrorist is uploaded to any of our platforms, we are able to fingerprint it for all the others so that they can't move from platform to platform.feedback

Jul 30 2017

We need to start paying women well and we need the public policy and the corporate policy to get there. But certainly women applying for jobs at the same rate as men, women running for office at the same rate as men, that's got to be part of the answer.feedback

I didn't know anyone could cry this much.feedback

Jul 29 2017 - Facebook

I felt so isolated and so alone that I decided to write what I would write as a Facebook post if I were going to be honest about how I felt to the world. I wrote it for myself, I thought it's not going to get worse and maybe it might get better and so I hit 'post' and I was shocked about how widely it was read.feedback

Jul 29 2017 - Facebook

But it actually really helped. It didn't bring Dave back and it didn't take away the grief but it took away the feeling that I was alone because people started talking to me again.feedback

This issue speaks to how we value women's labor, knowledge, time, training and so much more.feedback

Jul 17 2017 - Facebook

You have to be open to feedback. You have to ask for feedback. You have to build in a culture where, when I think you need to do something better, or you think I need to do something better–we tell each other and tell each other directly, and work it out.feedback

We had a constructive meeting with the Home Secretary.feedback

Jun 23 2017 - London

Some of our most important partnerships are focused on counter-speech, which means encouraging people to speak out against violence and extremism. The UK Online Civil Courage Initiative will support NGOs and community groups who work across the UK to challenge the extremist narratives that cause such harm. We know we have more to do – but through our platform, our partners and our community we will continue to learn to keep violence and extremism off Facebook.feedback

Jun 23 2017

As you leave this beautiful campus and set out into the world, build resilience in yourselves. When tragedy or disappointment strike, know that deep inside you, you have the ability to get through anything. I promise you do. As the saying goes, we are more vulnerable than we ever thought, but we are stronger than we ever imagined.feedback

We know marketers want to compare results across platforms and placements. Historically, we've enabled larger marketers to do this. In Q1 we started testing a set of advanced measurement tools that make it easier for marketers of all sizes to compare the effectiveness of Facebook, Instagram, and Audience Network alongside other publishers.feedback

May 25 2017 - Trump Presidency

Two years ago, if someone had told me that I would lose the love of my life and become more grateful, I would have never have believed them. But that's what happened. Because today I am more grateful now than I ever was before – for my family and especially my children. For my friends. For my work. For life itself.feedback

May 24 2017 - Silicon Valley

Brad Smith is one of the most respected CEOs in Silicon Valley. Serena is an activist, marketer, brand builder and one of the greatest athletes of all time. SurveyMonkey is near and dear to my heart. Dave loved the company, its mission of helping people make better decisions, and his colleagues that he worked with every day.feedback

We Build Resilience in Ourselves. There are times to lean in and there are times to lean on.feedback

May 14 2017 - Facebook

We shouldn't have to risk losing a job or being able to meet the basic needs of our families to do that. How are parents supposed to work if they don't have a safe and affordable place to leave their kids?feedback

May 13 2017 - Women

When I meet a woman wearing a ring on a chain around her neck, I know immediately: member of the club, . I never noticed before.feedback

May 12 2017

We don't have a set amount of resilience – it's a muscle that any of us can build. We build resilience in ourselves. We build it in the people we love. And we build it together, as a community. That's called 'collective resilience,' and it's an incredibly powerful force – one that our country and world need so badly right now. There are times to lean in and there are times to lean on. Suddenly I needed my family and friends more than ever. My mom – who along with my dad is here with me today – stayed with me for the first month, literally holding me until I cried myself to sleep each night.feedback

May 12 2017 - Facebook

They're how we explain our past and set expectations for our future.feedback

May 12 2017 - Facebook

We all need our posses – especially when life puts obstacles in our path.feedback

May 12 2017 - Facebook

You don't have to do something huge. You don't have to wait until someone tells you exactly what they need. And you don't have to be someone's best friend from the first grade to show up. Building collective resilience also means trying to understand how the world looks to those who have experienced it differently – because they are a different race, come from a different country, have an economic background unlike yours. We each have our own story but we can write new ones together – and that means seeing the value in each other's points of view and looking for common ground.feedback

May 12 2017 - Facebook

Build resilient organizations. Speak up when you see injustice. Lend your time and passion to causes that matter.feedback

May 12 2017 - Facebook

We don't have a set amount of resilience – it's a muscle that any of us can build. We build resilience in ourselves. We build it in the people we love. And we build it together, as a community – that's called collective resilience. It takes strength to rely on others.feedback

You don't have to be someone's best friend to show up.feedback

If you don't know what to do, do something. If you're going through hell, keep going. Don't let people go through it alone, because they may not make it. We tap into something when we're honest about what's going on in our lives. I came out of this with a greater sense of gratitude. Every day is a gift.feedback

May 03 2017 - Facebook

We know we're promoting men and women at the same rate. This is an issue I take very seriously.feedback

May 03 2017 - Facebook

We are in constant conversation with our advertisers, but we have not seen a revenue impact from this yet.feedback

May 03 2017 - Facebook

We did this because as Mark said in his post, there's no place for this kind of content on Facebook, and we are going to take every step that we can. And, that includes hiring more people in big numbers as you saw, but also building better tools to keep our community safe.feedback

May 03 2017 - Facebook

Seventy million businesses are now using Facebook pages around the world on a monthly basis, and more and more of them are becoming advertisers. We also recently announced that over 5 million business are actively advertising on Facebook.feedback

They learned lessons in life that I learned only from death.feedback

May 03 2017 - Facebook

Our possible selves – who we hoped to become – can be collateral damage. In companies, nonprofits, government and the military, [Adam] finds that the more people believe their jobs help others, the less emotionally exhausted they feel at work and the less depressed they feel in life. And on days when people think they've had a meaningful impact on others at work, they feel more energized at home and more capable of dealing with difficult situations.feedback

May 03 2017 - Facebook

For those who have the opportunity, pursuing meaningful work can help with recovery from trauma. The jobs where people find the most meaning are often ones that serve others. The roles of clergy, nurses, firefighters, addiction counselors and kindergarten teachers can be stressful, but we rely on these often under-compensated professionals for health and safety, learning and growth.feedback

May 03 2017 - Facebook

Keeping people safe is our top priority. We won't stop until we get it right.feedback

May 02 2017 - Trump Presidency

There's no such thing as work-life balance. There's work, and there's life, and there's no balance.feedback

Apr 28 2017 - Facebook

I got it all wrong before. I used to say, Is there anything I can do?' I used to say, How are you?,' or not say anything. Every mistake that someone else made with me, I've made. Look, if I don't find a way to move forward, then my kids are going to have a harder time recovering.feedback

Apr 27 2017 - Facebook

I don't think we have to be the publisher and we definitely don't want to be the arbiter of the truth.feedback

Apr 24 2017

I thought resilience was the capacity to endure pain, so I asked Adam how I could figure out how much I had. He explained that our amount of resilience isn't fixed, so I should be asking instead how I could become resilient. Resilience is the strength and speed of our response to adversity – and we can build it.feedback

Apr 24 2017

We had 11 truly joyful years of the deepest love, happiest marriage, and truest partnership that I could imagine…. He gave me the experience of being deeply understood, truly supported and completely and utterly loved – and I will carry that with me always. Most importantly, he gave me the two most amazing children in the world.feedback

Apr 24 2017

We found Dave on the floor, lying by the elliptical machine, his face slightly blue and turned to the left, a small pool of blood under his head. We all screamed. I started CPR. Rob took over from me. A doctor came and took over from him. When his brother Rob, in shock himself, said we had to go, I took a few steps out of the room, then turned around and ran back in, hugging Dave as hard as I could. Eventually, Rob lovingly pulled me off Dave's body.feedback

Apr 24 2017

I lay on the grass, holding them as they wailed. Day after day my kids' cries and screams filled the air. In the moments when they weren't crying, I watched them anxiously, waiting for the next instance they might need comfort. My own cries and screams – mostly inside my head but some out loud – filled the rest of the available space.feedback

Apr 24 2017 - Facebook

Well, we all have to do our part to make sure that people see accurate information and figuring out how we do that is something that we're going to have to see and will evolve. But we know the goal, the goal is for people to see accurate information on Facebook and everywhere else.feedback

Apr 24 2017 - Facebook

We are really a platform and we take our responsibilities on false news very seriously. False news hurts everyone because it makes our community uninformed, it hurts our community, it hurts countries. And we know that people want to see accurate news on Facebook and that's what we want them to see.feedback

Apr 24 2017 - Facebook

But I want Dave. Tragedy does not have to be personal, pervasive or permanent, but resilience can be. We can build it and carry it with us throughout our lives.feedback

Apr 24 2017 - Facebook

The grief felt like a void, like it was sucking me in and pushing on me, pulling me in and I couldn't even see or breathe. People who have been through things like this told me it gets better. And I really didn't believe them.... I want other people going through things to believe it does get better. I didn't get it. I didn't get how hard it is to succeed at work when you are overwhelmed at home. I know it almost sounds silly because I certainly work at Facebook and I know what Facebook's mission is. But experiencing it for myself was a very ... deep experience.feedback

Apr 23 2017

I have terrible news. Daddy died.feedback

Apr 23 2017

This is the second worst moment of our lives. We lived through the first and we will live through this. It can only get better from here.feedback

Apr 19 2017

I lost my husband, and it's a horrific thing to live through. I sat down with my children – they were 7 and 10 – and I said, You will never see your father again…. As women must be more empowered at work, men must be more empowered at home. I have seen so many women inadvertently discourage their husbands from doing their share by being too controlling or critical. I realize now how hard that [chapter] must have been to read if you were a single mom. I didn't get it.feedback

Apr 19 2017

I've definitely learned how hard it can be to lean in when you're struggling at home. But I deeply believe – maybe even more – in the importance of female leadership.feedback

Apr 19 2017

It gave me the understanding that, this is going to be terrible, and I stopped fighting the terrible moments because I knew they would happen. And when I stopped fighting them – 'Oh my God, I'm heartbroken, and I'm upset that I'm heartbroken' – they actually passed more quickly.feedback

Apr 19 2017

Turning feelings into words can help us process and overcome adversity.feedback

Apr 19 2017

One of the things that happens when you lose a spouse is people judge [you for dating again].feedback

Apr 19 2017

I wrote Option B because I want other people to know it can get better, and I want to help people make it better. When I first lost Dave, I felt like I would never be okay again. That feeling of not being able to breathe is not forever. I want people to know that. I learned that when life pulls you under, you can kick against the bottom, break the surface and breathe again. If you're facing loss or adversity, the first thing [you have to do is] lean in to the suck. This is gonna suck.feedback

Apr 16 2017 - Facebook

I'm falling asleep, . The three ps – personalisation, pervasiveness and permanence. Especially because the early reports, which were false, said he died by falling off an exercise machine. So I absolutely thought that if I had looked for him sooner, he would be alive. A friend would say to me, You didn't leave a three-year-old alone in a gym.' But I felt hugely guilty. I really meant it. But it kind of shifts the burden to the person who needs the help to tell you.feedback

Apr 16 2017 - Facebook

Writing about joyful experiences for just three days can improve people's moods and decrease their visits to health centres a full three months later.feedback

Apr 16 2017 - Facebook

And you know, after that, I didn't feel alone any more.feedback

Apr 16 2017 - Facebook

You know, we were Facebook. We were very open. We sit at open desks and we share openly.feedback

Apr 16 2017 - Facebook

I'm so glad you're doing this interview. Because you get it.feedback

Apr 15 2017 - Facebook

Mark is why I'm walking. Most of what [he and Priscilla] did is not even in the book, because they did so much. When I felt so overwhelmed and so isolated and just needed to cry, I would grab him into his conference room and he would just sit there with me and be like, We're going to get through this and we want to get through it with you. He did it over and over. Really? I thought you made a good point in that meeting and helped us make a better decision.feedback

Apr 15 2017 - Facebook

I think I'm helping people remember that dating, for those that want to do it, is part of moving forward, and it's option B. If I could, I would only date Dave. I made that choice. I just had it taken away from me.feedback

Apr 15 2017 - Facebook

After that, I didn't feel so alone.feedback

Apr 14 2017 - Facebook

I think when tragedy occurs, it presents a choice. You can give in to the void, the emptiness that fills your heart, your lungs, constricts your ability to think or even breathe. Or you can try to find meaning. These past 30 days, I have spent many of my moments lost in that void. And I know that many future moments will be consumed by the vast emptiness as well. But when I can, I want to choose life and meaning.feedback

Apr 14 2017 - Facebook

It just kind of crumbled in every area. I didn't think I could be a good friend. I didn't feel like I could do my job. It reminded me of how one day in my neighborhood I watched a house that had taken years to build get torn down in a matter of minutes. Boom. Flattened. I feel it every day. Every day. I go to my son's basketball game, and there are a lot of fathers there. My daughter is going to be in the school play next week, and Dave is not here to go to any of that.feedback

Apr 10 2017 - Facebook

Small businesses provide such important products and services, but they also are a huge engine of job growth in a world where job growth is increasingly uncertain and something people really worry about.feedback

Apr 03 2017

We need to raise the federal minimum wage law. Two-thirds of minimum-wage workers are women. We need better public policy. We need businesses to do the audits they should be doing. We need individuals to be aware of this. There is a lot to do.feedback

Apr 03 2017 - Gender equality

Equal pay is essential to the goal of gender equality. This issue speaks to how we value women's labor, knowledge, time, training, and so much more. In short, it's about women's worth. There's nothing more fundamental than that.feedback

Feb 08 2017 - Facebook

Facebook employees will have up to 20 days paid leave to grieve an immediate family member, up to 10 days to grieve an extended family member.feedback

Feb 07 2017

Amid the nightmare of Dave's death when my kids needed me more than ever, I was grateful every day to work for a company that provides bereavement leave and flexibility. I needed both to start my recovery. At a time when nearly nine of ten working women in the United States have no parental or family leave, women make 80 cents on the dollar compared to men, and there's no system of national paid leave, companies need to step-up and lead. I hope more companies will join us and others making similar moves, because America's families deserve support.feedback

Feb 07 2017 - Women

I don't know of one woman in a leadership position whose life partner is not fully – and I mean fully – supportive of her career.feedback

Consumer video is exploding on our platform as Mark was talking about, and that really creates ad opportunities.feedback

No one event is that big for our business.feedback

Jan 31 2017

Long before this week, women – especially undocumented women – have been vulnerable to violence and abuse once they get here. Young women caught in refugee status are highly vulnerable to violence and exploitation and also often lose the chance at an education. We know that no investment has a higher return than girls' education – for them, for their families and for the countries they may someday help rebuild.feedback

Jan 31 2017

The Executive Orders issued over the past week defy the heart and values that define the best of our nation. Families have been separated. Frightened children have been detained in airports without their parents. People seeking refuge have been turned away and sent back to the danger they just managed to flee. This is not how it should be in America.feedback

Jan 27 2017 - World Bank

I started my career working at the World Bank on health care in India. I saw firsthand how clinics funded by foreign aid are often the only source of health care for women. When women are given even the most basic health care information and services, they live longer, healthier lives – and they give birth to children who live longer, healthier lives.feedback

Jan 27 2017 - Abortion

Comprehensive family planning helps prevent unintended pregnancies, deaths and abortions. This week's executive order reinstating the global gag rule will make that work much harder. It bans health organizations around the world from providing counseling on all family planning options. If they refuse to abide by the ban, they could lose millions in funding from the United States. And this ban is harsher and broader than past orders by past presidents, because it covers every program that falls under global health assistance. That means it'll hurt more people.feedback

Jan 27 2017 - Abortion

For the first time in our country's history, a woman was the nominee of a major party, and over 59 million Americans voted to put Hillary Clinton in the highest office in the land. Even though we fell short, that should make us all proud. We have real challenges to face as a country. The only answer I've ever known to facing any challenge is to work harder. Today we pledge as Americans to keep working for a better future for everyone. Today we recommit ourselves to leaning in.feedback

Jan 17 2017

We don't want to decide what the truth is, and I don't believe anyone wants us to do that. When we say that we can't take it on ourselves, that doesn't mean that we don't want to take any responsibility. We do take responsibility.feedback

Dec 21 2016

Just to notice the times when things were good. And I have kept it all year in this little notebook that a friend of mine gave me.feedback

Dec 21 2016

This is the first year I have ever kept a New Year's resolution.feedback

Nov 02 2016

It's definitely true that most of our advertisers are advertising on TV and advertising with us on mobile – and they should be. And we've done studies with Nielsen that show our ads can be a good complement to TV, particularly enabling you to reach people who really aren't on TV ... the power of what we're able to really goes to the targeting.feedback

Sep 30 2016

Our goal as a company is to make your Newsfeed experience great…. If we can make advertising work because it is great content for people, that's where the win is.feedback

Sep 27 2016 - Facebook

Video is exploding across Facebook. ... What's happening with live on Facebook is really exciting. We're not yet focused on monetization.feedback

Sep 27 2016

I think that's because businesses know that consumers are spending time on mobile, and they need to be there.feedback

Sep 27 2016

What [advertisers] have always looked for is who sees their ads, how they are spending their ad budgets, and then, is that moving products off shelves. What we're working on is all of that measurement so that we can go all the way through from what someone sees to to their purchases.feedback

Sep 27 2016

We take any mistake really seriously and trust is so important. We also believe very strongly in third-party measurement. We're not just grading our own homework.feedback

Sep 12 2016

I hope to see you soon - and am always available if you have further concerns.feedback

Sep 12 2016

Even with clear standards, screening millions of posts on a case-by-case basis every week is challenging.feedback

Sep 12 2016

Nonetheless, we intend to do better. We are committed to listening to our community and evolving. Thank you for helping us get this right.feedback

Jun 23 2016

As we think about helping people understand different points of view and being open to different points of view, we're dealing with political bias as well going forward.feedback

I have never spoken publicly about this before. It's hard. But I will do my very best not to blow my nose on this beautiful Berkeley robe.feedback

It is the hard days – the times that challenge you to your very core – that will determine who you are. You will be defined not just by what you achieve, but by how you survive.feedback
