CEO Mark Zuckerberg insists he's still the best person to run Facebook , despite all the company's scandals.
This week, a bombshell new report dropped about how company execs tried to downplay issues and smear critics.
In a damage-control conference call with reporters, Zuckerberg insisted that fixing Facebook's problems will take time.
"I don't think that me or anyone else could come in and snap our fingers and have these issues resolved in a quarter or half a year," he said.

Mark Zuckerberg really wants you to know he reads the New York Times

3 monthes ago   |   By The Next Web

Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg today held a press call to talk about the company's 2nd Community Standards Enforcement report.

The part about that “Community Standards” stuff - more blah-blah-blah about how Facebook's algorithms and newly-hired team of crack human hate-speech finders are going to make Facebook great again- was boring and predictable. Facebook is sorry. It's going to do better. Perhaps the only interesting...

3 monthes ago   |   By Phone Arena

Facebook today denied a report in yesterday's New York Times, which said that company co-founder CEO Mark Zuckerberg has ordered company executives to use Android handsets only. The report said that Zuckerberg was getting back at Apple for comments made by its CEO, Tim Cook.
