The Russia hoax continues, now it's ads on Facebook. What about the totally biased and dishonest Media coverage in favor of Crooked Hillary? As the phony Russian Witch Hunt continues, two groups are laughing at this excuse for a lost election taking hold, Democrats and Russians!feedback

Mark Zuckerberg - Facebook

When someone buys political ads on TV or other media, they're required by law to disclose who paid for them. But you still don't know if you're seeing the same messages as everyone else. So we're going to bring Facebook to an even higher standard of transparency. Not only will you have to disclose which page paid for an ad, but we will also make it so you can visit an advertiser's page and see the ads they're currently running to any audience on Facebook.feedback

Lyda Krewson

I read my Twitter mentions and my Facebook posts, I've been reading your emails and your texts, listening to your voicemails, reviewing the hashtags. We are postponing our Town Halls for this week because they are happening in the streets and in my inbox and on social media right now. We are listening.feedback

Mark Zuckerberg - Facebook

You're taking away from all the time that I spent on this. I also have an assistant who helped set up this meeting. Does that mean I don't do the meeting?feedback

Mark Zuckerberg - Facebook

Our sophistication in handling these threats is growing and improving quickly. We will continue working with the government to understand the full extent of Russian interference, and we will do our part not only to ensure the integrity of free and fair elections around the world, but also to give everyone a voice and to be a force for good in democracy everywhere.feedback

Jason Calacanis

Why can't Zuckerberg release the ads that the Russians bought? Why can't we see them when they could cash the checks of Russians? They have no ability to regulate themselves.feedback

Jason Calacanis

When the American people see these ads, they're going to realize that Zuckerberg going after these 50 states – he's on an apology tour. It's disgusting.feedback

Mark W. Warner

I just wonder, a company that prides itself on data, knowledge of all of us. I find it hard to believe it's taken this long. Maybe they've not put their resources behind this.feedback

Adam Schiff

They "had certainly talked about the issue of what the Russians were doing, as well as the broader issues in terms of how people are getting their information now, whether people are exposed to diversity of information or accurate news.feedback

Mark W. Warner

I would point out that, you know, back around the election time, if you were to Google election hacking, most of the stories that came up were Russian-based. That raises a question to me – why wasn't Fox or MSNBC higher on that list?feedback

Adam Schiff

To a frightening degree, we see a growth in the use of malicious bots to try to sway public opinion. It's not confined to Russia, and in some cases it's very human-driven as well as bot-driven.feedback

Adam Schiff

It will be important for the Committee to scrutinize how rigorous Facebook's internal investigation has been, to test its conclusions and to understand why it took as long as it did to discover the Russian sponsored advertisements and what else may yet be uncovered. As we continue our investigation to get to the bottom of Russia's multifaceted attack on our democratic process, I believe it will be necessary to hear directly from Facebook, Google and Twitter, as well as others in the tech sector, including in open hearings that will inform the American public.feedback

Ed Woodward

In the wider picture you have to look what's happening elsewhere at the moment. Looking at the interest Facebook and Amazon had in the Indian Premier League [cricket] rights anecdotally sounded like very big numbers. Secondly, Amazon has taken over the Thursday night streaming from Twitter for the NFL and, thirdly, the MLS deal with Facebook is very interesting to broadcast 22 games in the regular season.feedback

Ed Woodward

The range that we set out there encapsulates the various finishing positions within the Premier League, and from a Champions League perspective it's the same across all the cups which is a quarter-final assumption.feedback

Aaron Rieke

We don't need to be too awed by this problem. You have a finite list of categories, many of which were generated automatically. Take a look, and see what matches up with your community standards and the values of the company. Facebook can monitor the things it does that make it money.feedback

James Purnell

The idea came from ... another group of young BBC employees who pointed out that in our content-making areas the percentage of senior leaders under 30 is particularly low. In 2016/17 it was only 0.1 per cent, which maybe doesn't sound unusual until you think that the founders of Google, Amazon, Facebook and Apple were all 30 or under.feedback

John Barnett

Everyone got so excited about Pokémon Go when it was just one thing. What if there are 1,000 things like that? All these layers of information that are spatially situated and relevant to what you care about.feedback

Alvaro Collet

If you had all the features of the world already in 3-D, it would be very easy to place the position of the camera. And, conversely, if you had all the camera positions, it's very easy to create the 3-D map of the world. The problem with SLAM is that when you start, you don't have a 3-D map and you don't know where the camera is. That's the simultaneous part.feedback

John Barnett

In the existing Facebook structure, we're giving you everything that's happening right now in the world, collapsing space to give you a a slice of time. This is talking about collapsing time to give you this piece of space.feedback

John Barnett

We're basically looking at what pieces of technology we need to build amazing augmented-reality products.feedback

Alvaro Collet

If you don't think about them from the start, it's very hard, once you have a system to say, Oh, maybe we should tolerate this better.feedback

Alvaro Collet

This is actually a pretty challenging scene because it is very plain.feedback

Alvaro Collet

One thing we really are about is giving everyday users–maybe a year from now, maybe two years from now–the ability to recreate that Heather Day scene with just tools you have on your phone.feedback

Omari Akil

When my brain started combining the complexity of being black in America with the real-world proposal of wandering and exploration that is designed into the game play of Pokémon Go, there was only one conclusion. I might die if I keep playing.feedback

Alvaro Collet

For the first time, you can run SLAM and deep networks on a cellphone. We have two big teams: SLAM geometric teams and the other is deep nets. And the goal is these two things are going to combine.feedback

Nathaniel Persily

It's going to be hard to regulate in this area. But it's clearly the frontier.feedback

Piyush Shah - InMobi

We have always been mobile(phone)-first. All our solutions have been built with a focus on mobile (phones). That has given us a lot of knowledge and expertise in a unique way and so we have grown uniquely in the app ecosystem. While Google and Facebook are strong, too, the mobile-only focus brings with it an added domain expertise and domain knowledge for us.feedback

Brian Fishman

Facebook's policy on this is really clear. Terrorists are not allowed to be on Facebook. So I don't think the suggestion that technology companies must be compelled to care is helpful at this stage.feedback

Brian Fishman

It's clear technology companies across the industry are treating the problem of terrorist content online seriously. We are increasingly using automated techniques to find this stuff. We're trying to enable computers to do what they're good at: look at lots of material very quickly, give us a high-level overview. We've also recently started to use artificial intelligence.feedback

Brian Fishman

Making sure that we can understand really culturally nuanced activity in a way that is consistent is a constant challenge. And it's something that requires human beings. We really want, as much as possible, to rely on our ability to use algorithms and machine-learning to do as much of this as possible. But we're never going to get away from the necessity of having human beings to make the grey area calls.feedback

Brian Fishman

Because of the way end-to-end encryption works, we can't read the contents of individual encrypted messages on, say, WhatsApp, but we do respond quickly to appropriate and legal law enforcement requests. We believe that actually puts authorities in a better position than in a situation where this type of technology runs off to mom-and-pop apps scattered all over the globe. There is some limited data that's available, and WhatsApp is working to help law enforcement understand how it responds to their requests, especially in emergency situations.feedback

Sheryl Sandberg - Facebook

This is an email I received this afternoon. Sadly this is all too common for women on the internet. I am sure this is just an idiot rather than any kind of credible threat but it's still pretty vile.feedback

Mark Zuckerberg - Facebook

As a general rule, we are limited in what we can discuss publicly about law enforcement investigations, so we may not always be able to share our findings publicly. But we support Congress in deciding how to best use this information to inform the public, and we expect the government to publish its findings when their investigation is complete.feedback

Sheryl Sandberg - Facebook

We never intended or anticipated this functionality being used this way – and that is on us. I had been the author of unalterable evils, and I lived in daily fear lest the monster whom I had created should perpetrate some new wickedness.feedback

Antonio García Martínez

The reality is that if you're at the helm of a machine that has two billion screaming, whiny humans, it's basically impossible to predict each and every possible nefarious use case. It's a Whac-a-Mole problem.feedback

Antonio García Martínez

They still see themselves as a technology middleman. Facebook is not supposed to be an element of a propaganda war. They're completely not equipped to deal with that.feedback

Mark Zuckerberg - Facebook

It has always been against our policies to use any of our tools in a way that break the law. We have many controls already in place to prevent this, but we could do more. Most ads bought programatically through our apps and website without an advertiser ever speaking to someone at Facebook. That's what happened here. But even without our employees directly involved in the sales, we can do better.feedback

Ed Woodward

Absolutely, I think they will enter the mix; anecdotally, there was incredibly strong interest in the last cycle. We are hearing that around the Premier League table, and we are also hearing that from a European perspective in terms of interest in the Champions League and Europa rights. I do think we are going to see an increasing engagement from these, and we would welcome the interest.feedback

Antonio Rosas

We were surprised because we were expecting some differences. But it was, Similar, similar, similar – oh, different – similar, similar – oh, different.feedback

Antonio Rosas

What we saw is that it took longer for them to get their big brains.feedback

Valeria Cardini

I like the theater because so many people come to Monticchiello for this. And it helps me express myself. I am on Facebook, but I don't really use it.feedback

Theresa May

We need a fundamental shift in the scale and nature of our response – both from industry and governments – if we are to match the evolving nature of terrorists' use of the internet. This is a global problem that transcends national interests. Governments must work with and support the efforts of industry and civil society if we are to achieve real and continuing progress and prevent the spread of extremism and terrorist use of cyberspace. In order to succeed, we must be united in our determination to fight terrorist exploitation of the internet.feedback

Paul-Jasper Dittrich

Despite increased media attention and isolated viral phenomena such as the 'Schulz train' or the hype around the young leader of the Free Democrats, Christian Lindner, social networks still play a comparatively small role in political communication in Germany, even during the election campaign.feedback

Mark Zuckerberg - Facebook

One thing is certain, and it's that I'm a jerk for making this site. Oh well.feedback

Mark Zuckerberg - Facebook

The days of you having a different image for your work friends or co-workers and for the other people you know are probably coming to an end pretty quickly. Having two identities for yourself is an example of a lack of integrity.feedback

Mark Zuckerberg - Facebook

To get people to this point where there's more openness – that's a big challenge. But I think we'll do it.feedback

Mark Zuckerberg - Facebook

In a lot of ways Facebook is more like a government than a traditional company. We have this large community of people, and more than other technology companies we're really setting policies. Move fast and break things.feedback

Heidi Fiore

It has been really amazing to watch him have more energy and just be a normal Labrador. When we first saw him I thought he looked like a bear or a pig. He was enormous but he was so excited to see us – his tail was wagging.feedback

Sheryl Sandberg - Facebook

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

Jennifer Mann Hillman

We thought 'there's got to be someplace where we can sell things and make money with our items and have some part of it donated to a charity that we love,' and we looked around and there really wasn't anything like it.feedback

Melissa Baxter

We have to just be more creative. We have to use what's at our fingertips.feedback

James Reinhart - thredUp

You're still looking at 10, 15, 20 years where you're still going to sell more stuff offline than you are online. So, as a practical matter, it was 'we should have stores because that's where customers buy.feedback

Julie Wainwright - The RealReal

We found that the pop-up stores helped people think about us differently. It was an exercise in branding.feedback

Adele Meyer

People don't realize how much online selling brick and mortars do. Now, the newest trend is Facebook Live sales.feedback

Jimmy Kimmel

This guy, Bill Cassidy, just lied right to my face. By the way, before you post a nasty Facebook message saying I'm politicizing my son's health problems, I want you to know: I am politicizing my son's health problems. Coverage for all? No, In fact, it will kick about 30 million Americans off insurance.feedback

Sheryl Sandberg - Facebook

After manually reviewing existing targeting options, we are reinstating the roughly 5,000 most commonly used targeting terms – such as 'nurse, teacher' or 'dentistry.' We have made sure these meet our Community Standards.feedback

Sheryl Sandberg - Facebook

The fact that hateful terms were even offered as options was totally inappropriate and a fail on our part. We removed them and when that was not totally effective, we disabled that targeting section in our ad systems. If we discover unintended consequences in the future, we will be unrelenting in identifying and fixing them as quickly as possible.feedback

Kimmie Greene

It's part of the mindset when you're young. It's 'Oh, when I get that next job and I get a $10,000 bump in my salary, then I'll start doing these things,' but that's really not the reality.feedback

Kimmie Greene

Even if it's just your rainy day fund your first year or just what your company's matching [in your 401(k)], if that's all you can do in year one, that's huge. That's going to make it that much easier to do 12 percent or 15 percent the next year.feedback

Roger McNamee

The problem is the algorithms are set up now. They get paid best when people are emotional. When they're either afraid or angry, that's what causes a lot of sharing.feedback

Roger McNamee

Facebook and Google in particular take the position that they're not responsible or accountable for anything that happens on their platform. There's a need for a conversation about exactly what the limits ought to be.feedback

Randy Lowry

It doesn't hurt the goal. It doesn't change the mission. I think it acknowledges that we're not perfect. We always seek to be perfect but we never expected we would be – even the president of the university.feedback

Jim Breyer

When I visit campuses and speak to the AI experts, there is a median year of 2050 where they think the self-learning capability of AI will be singular and will be at human-level intelligence. So, 2050? Does it happen? There are a lot of people who don't think that is the case. It is median data from some of the best AI researchers in the world. Well, I bet on Mark Zuckerberg when he was 20 and I will never bet against Mark Zuckerberg. I think opportunities from an investment standpoint will be five to 10 [times] – in terms of market cap around AI – what social [media] currently is.feedback

Jim Breyer

So, 2050? Does it happen? There are a lot of people who don't think that is the case. It is median data from some of the best AI researchers in the world.feedback

Fabio Silva

Nothing quite like parking and taking up four spaces. Start spending hundreds of pounds on your car and then you'll understand where I'm coming from.feedback

Randy Lowry

I wrote in my apology that I did the next day how I understand that cotton represents something to some of the African American community that takes us back to the deplorable times of slavery. So I understand that student and am extraordinarily sorry to have anything on the table that would have been offensive. It was extraordinarily innocent, but I understand fully and I have tried to apologize fully for any offense that might have caused any of our students.feedback

Randy Lowry

As we arrived to the president's home and proceeded to go in we seen cotton as the center pieces. We were very offended, and also the meals that were provided resembled many 'black meals' they had mac n cheese, collard greens, corn bread etc. The night before Latinos also had dinner at his house and they had tacos. They also DIDN'T have the center piece that we HAD tonight.feedback

Jimmy Kimmel

And by the way, before you post the nasty Facebook message saying I'm politicizing my son's health problems, I want you to know I am politicizing my son's health problems–because I have to. My family has health insurance; we don't have to worry about this. But other people do. So you can shove your disgusting comments where your doctor won't be giving you a prostate exam once they take your healthcare benefits away. You have to do this. You can't just click 'like' on this video. Tell them this bill doesn't pass your test.feedback

Mark W. Warner

This is uncharted territory. The growth in political advertising is in the digital world, and if this is the most targeted and potentially most effective way into politics, the paid advertising rules that broadcasters rely upon should also apply in the social media world.feedback

Ed Black

We are disruptive, and that creates a lot of tension, concern, worry and jealousy and sometimes rightfully identifies real problems that need solutions.feedback

Richard Blumenthal

There is much stronger agreement among me and my colleagues that there needs to be more aggressive enforcement action on tech companies like Google.feedback

Erin Egan

We strongly believe that there is a legislative solution that can address this terrible problem while ensuring that the internet remains open and free and that responsible companies can continue to work to stop sex trafficking before it happens.feedback

Rob Portman

Silicon Valley holds itself out as being more than just an industry but a movement to make the world a better place. But selling human beings online is the dark side of the internet.feedback

Amy Klobuchar

We need to start adjusting to a world where we are right now. Antitrust laws haven't been updated since the 1950s. In the 1950s, they didn't envision a major search engine dominating the internet. They didn't even have the internet.feedback

Susan Molinari - Google

We'll continue to engage members of Congress, anti-trafficking organizations and the industry to try and get to a resolution that addresses the problem without creating unintended side effects.feedback

Brian Wieser - Pivotal Research Group

A whole bunch of problems have come up for Facebook over the past year that are going to have consequences. It's something between sloppiness, an absence of consideration on a range of issues, and the simple challenges of managing a massive company growing at an unparalleled pace.feedback

Sheryl Sandberg - Facebook

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. People wrote these deeply offensive terms into the education and employer write-in fields and because these terms were used so infrequently, we did not discover this until ProPublica brought it to our attention. We never intended or anticipated this functionality being used this way–and that is on us. And we did not find it ourselves–and that is also on us.feedback

Robert Blackie

If you report pornography for example, it gets removed very quickly. The biggest challenge is that the government hasn't defined what extremist content is.feedback

Jim Killock - Open Rights Group

Mistakes will inevitably be made – by removing the wrong content and by missing extremist material. Automated takedowns will have a wide-reaching effect on the content we see, although not necessarily on the spread of extremist ideas as terrorists will switch to using other platforms.feedback

Monika Bickert - Facebook

AI has begun to help us identify terrorist imagery at the time of upload so we can stop the upload, understand text-based signals for terrorist support, remove terrorist clusters and related content, and detect new accounts created by repeat offenders.feedback

Kent Walker - Google

The "larger problem is you can't necessarily catch everything on the entirety of the internet... The challenge is, while machine learning is a powerful tool, it's still relatively early in its evolution.feedback

Phil Robertson - Human Rights Watch

Of course, the problem with social media is that their policing mechanisms can be used for harassment by those willing to mount a concerted campaign of filing complaints against specific Facebook pages or Twitter feeds. We've seen an explosion of Rakhine and Burman nationalists using Twitter, retweeting hateful messages and gory images, so it would not surprise me at all if some of those nationalists, using bot accounts and pages apparently set up en masse, are now going on the attack against Rohingya on Facebook.feedback

Mohammed Rafique

Although I am still receiving new photos and videos of the ongoing anti-Rohingya violence, I am not posting them on my Facebook any more, fearing Facebook action like suspension of my account.feedback

Ruchika Budhraja - Facebook

In response to the situation in Myanmar, we are only removing graphic content when it is shared to celebrate the violence, versus raising awareness and condemning the action. We are carefully reviewing content against our Community Standards and, when alerted to errors, quickly resolving them and working to prevent them from happening again.feedback

Věra Jourová

We made clear that if we do not see better action we will have to come with maybe harder solutions in the EU – hard in the [sense] of regulation.feedback

Natasa Pirc-Musar

I'm satisfied with the fact that the school admitted that they violated the law and that they are ready to remove the billboards and (Facebook) ads. We are still analyzing possible further legal steps. We are very sorry that the billboards were misunderstood as something intended to mock the U.S. First Lady. It was meant to be something positive, to show her as a role model.feedback

Ann Ravel

I mean, think of it, do we want Vladimir Putin or drug cartels to be influencing American elections?feedback

Ellen Weintraub - Federal Election Commission

For our democracy to work, the American people need to know that the ads they see on their computer screens and in their social media feeds aren't paid for by Russia or other foreign countries.feedback

Chamath Palihapitiya

We at Facebook basically flipped the narrative, and we did it on purpose. Our whole thing was 'Let's stay private longer.' And the reason we did that was we were pretty sure it would trick a lot of other people into not trying to go public or take advantage of the capital markets.feedback

Kate Starbird

When I started doing research about social media, I was very optimistic about its role in crisis response. But after the last year and a half, I've become increasingly depressed. I have a much more negative outlook.feedback

Kate Starbird

We have ideas about how we make sense of the world. Our current information environment makes us newly vulnerable to things like filter bubbles and purposeful manipulation. People who understand how we think will try to influence us with ads and propaganda.feedback

Jack Robinson

[Events] are often attempts to gain personal information from freshers, and tickets never seem to materialise.feedback

Eric Freymond

The DR01 should be considered a work of art. But it's more than that. It's a totally innovative project that will bring fantastic progress and a new perspective to the entire Swiss watch industry.feedback

Zeynep Tufekci

All I can say is, Wow,' . Given the scale of the misinformation campaign, it's pretty obvious that ads would be a vector. They are an ad company.feedback

Adam Schiff

The internal analysis Facebook has done [on Russian ads] has been very helpful, but we need to know if it's complete. I don't think Facebook fully knows the answer yet.feedback

Jonathan Taplin

When you buy advertising on a TV network, you have to disclose who paid for it and where it's coming from.feedback

Jonathan Taplin

We've had a very lax regulatory regime, but my guess is they will have to start doing this. It will lead to more regulation and you're right that the Europeans are starting that.feedback

Harry Truman

I could never lend myself to any transaction, however respectable, that would commercialize on the prestige and dignity of the office of the presidency.feedback

Sadiq Khan

It's really important that we show business as usual rather than allow terrorists to disrupt our way of life and stop us doing what we're doing.feedback

Philipp Schindler - Google

The problem cannot be solved by humans and it shouldn't be solved by humans.feedback

Nelson Mandela

There is no passion to be found playing small–in settling for a life that is less than the one you are capable of living.feedback

Luther Lowe - Yelp

When a dominant information firm abuses its monopoly, you get the same negative effects of reduced choice and higher prices as in other monopolies, but democracy and free speech are also undermined because these firms now control how information is accessed and how it flows.feedback

Oren Shur

You have everyone under the sun buying political ads online now. It's where everything is least transparent.feedback

Ellen Weintraub - Federal Election Commission

It is unlawful for foreign nationals to be spending money in connection with any federal, state or local election, directly or indirectly.feedback

Charlene McCarthy

I knew something went horribly wrong. It was horribly unnerving for me. To watch that, knowing I could provide a qualified, certified interpreter.feedback

Philip Howard

Many of us wish we could study Facebook, but we can't, because they really don't share anything.feedback

Philip Cohen

We don't actually have a way to measure the thing we're trying to explain. We don't know who's gay. We don't even know what that means. Is it an identity where you stand up and say 'I am gay,' is it an underlying attraction, or is it a behavior? If it's any of those things, it's not going to be dichotomous.feedback

Jeremy Howard

When I first read the outraged summaries of it I felt outraged. And then I thought I should read the paper, so then I started reading the paper and remained outraged.feedback

Konstantin Tskhay

These images emerge, in theory, from people's experience and stereotypes about gay and straight individuals. It also shows that people are quite accurate.feedback

Michal Kosinski

This is the lamest algorithm you can use, trained on a small sample with small resolution with off-the-shelf tools that are actually not made for what we are asking them to do.feedback

Margaret Ann

You know, the police will do this. I said, Well maybe so, but it will take a while – and they have more important things to do, really.feedback

Joe Osborne - Facebook

Our teams are considering things like limiting the total number of fields available or adding more reviews of fields before they show up in ads creation.feedback

Tom Maas

I didn't know what Facebook was to start. I was the first like on my own.feedback

Michael Hamill

U don't like it? don't read it then. So I find it funny that people will talk about how our government needs to do something about our economy and in reality it's YOU who needs to stop taking advantage of our system and get a life and do something with your life. Gotta love reality when it hits you in the face. Stupid people annoy me. Put them in an oven and deal with them the Hitler way. Ha-ha.feedback

Mark Zuckerberg - Facebook

One of the things that I'm most proud of and I think is really key to our success is this testing framework we've built. At any given point in time there isn't just one version of Facebook running, there's probably 10,000.feedback

Mark Zuckerberg - Facebook

It's hard to have a community be a meaningful part of your support structure if you're not also connecting in the real world. We're going to keep focusing on giving everyone a voice and helping them stay connected to their friends and family but understanding that now we need to do more to help bridge some of the divides in society and bring the world closer together.feedback

Mark Zuckerberg - Facebook

No, but this may be the last time Priscilla lets me dress her. I'll take a month off to be with Priscilla and the girls at the beginning, and then we'll spend the whole month of December together as well.feedback

Michael Hamill

Who knew that reading jewish jokes before I go to bed would not only make me feel better about myself but also help me to sleep better as well. Here is one for everybody, What's the difference between boy scouts and jews?' Anybody know? Well it is because 'Boy scouts come back from their camps.feedback

Darren Bolding - Cambridge Analytica

Algorithms will find the worst in us if you let them go nuts. It's good for society to have shared context. But people who have differences need to have them addressed.feedback

Lawrence Lessig

It's not that [Facebook CEO] Mark Zuckerberg is interested in attacking Jews. It's that his technology...allows for the feeding of this micro-targeting.feedback

Jamie McGowan

Burying your head in tech can make it hard to see the wood for the trees. But sitting down together helps us to get every task solved or planned, which means a more productive team.feedback

Michael Foote

We've appointed a social media marketing company to manage our presence on Facebook. It runs our paid advertising campaigns and updates our Facebook page with interesting content.feedback

Joelle Pineau

I love that job, but there comes a time when you're up for a new challenge and finding out about a new way of doing research. Nowadays, so much machine learning research is happening in industry.feedback

Mark Zuckerberg - Facebook

Our goal with artificial intelligence is to build systems that are better than people at perception -- seeing, hearing, language and so on.feedback

Joe Yakuel

If you have strong opinions on two sides of the same topic, those will typically be more engaging. Even inadvertent controversy can cause a lot of engagement.feedback

Anthony Astolfi

When you put out an ad and Facebook sees that relative to other ads this is one is getting a lot of shares, that really seems to drive the cost down.feedback

Sheryl Sandberg - Facebook

We take our responsibility to the people who use our products, to the countries in which we work like Germany, to society at large, very seriously.feedback

Jonathan Zittrain

For categories with tiny audiences, with titles drawn from data that Facebook users themselves enter–such as education and interests–it may amount to a tree falling in a forest that no one hears. But should anything more than negligible ad traffic begin with categories, there's a responsibility to see what the platform is supporting.feedback

Aaron Rieke

It's not surprising, sadly, that people are expressing hateful views on Facebook, but it was surprising to see that hate reflected back in the categories that Facebook uses to sell ads. This is not a situation where you're asking Facebook to monitor the ocean of user content. This is saying: Okay, you have a finite list of categories, many of which were generated automatically. Take a look, and see what matches up with your community standards and the values of the company. Facebook can monitor the things it does that make it money.feedback

Sean Hannity

When you're in the sh– up to your neck, there's nothing left to do but sing.feedback

Beth Chapman

I've been dealt my share of unexpected blows over the course of my almost fifty years but nothing as serious as the one I heard from my doctors two weeks ago when they uttered those dreaded three words, You have cancer. After months of a nagging cough, a routine checkup resulted in a diagnosis of stage II throat cancer. I have what is referred to as a T2 Tumor in my throat that is blocking my breathing. My doctors are suggesting immediate treatment and surgery before the disease progresses.feedback

Bob Mould

The tragic news of Grant's passing was not unexpected to me. My deepest condolences and thoughts to Grant's family, friends, and fans around the world. Grant Hart was a gifted visual artist, a wonderful story teller, and a frighteningly talented musician. Everyone touched by his spirit will always remember. Godspeed, Grant. I miss you.

Amazon is a microscopic portion of global consumption today, so ultimately I think it has more room to grow before it invites regulatory overview. On the other hand, Facebook and Google effectively are surveillance states. And they have so much personal, private information about so many citizens of so many countries.feedback

[T]hink about this as a merger of an entity that should be valued anywhere between $3 and call it $20 billion where that management stays in control.feedback

It is competing against fundamentally impaired companies, including Wal-Mart, quite honestly. That don't have the technical saavvy, they don't have the capabilities, specialty retailers, an entire overhang of cost structure that [Amazon doesn't] have to deal with.feedback

And you're talking about an exceptionally creative team – a lot of really good people who should otherwise have been left to build the business. There is a better way to price these IPOs.feedback

You have a bank, in that case, Morgan Stanley, spending weeks and weeks with the company. They to try and to ground truth of what the company is worth. It's priced in the mid-teens, it opens in the mid-$20s .... all the mutual funds are forced to sell because the price spikes. Clearly it was mispriced. .... All of that, in my opinion, is fundamentally unnecessary and entirely avoidable.feedback

Say you have cash you need to put to work, and you don't have a good place to invest immediately. You put it to work in the SPAC, you are still collecting a management fee, and it's not going to go down because the money is invested in a trust. It's like a hedge for a hedge fund.feedback

Right now they are operating in an arena where they have some, but very few, legal responsibilities. We are going to keep seeing examples of this kind, and at some point the jig is going to be up and the regulators are going to act. Will the tech companies be the first movers and decide what they [themselves] will get to say, or will the regulators be the ones that move first?feedback

It's complicated. The way these advertising models subject all of us and our attention to advertising, a kind of mental pollution, is unprecedented in human history. The decisions we make regarding the way that tech companies are a market for advertising affect, in a very real sense, what kind of digital democracy we are going to build.feedback
