Social media amplifies conspiracies ahead of 2020 presidential election

"So we may be calling it Election day. But there might not be actual results for days, if not weeks in the presidential race, and that's because of all the mail in voting. Right. And during this waiting game, there is some kind of fear that people will start spreading conspiracy theories, especially on social media. Facebook and Twitter say they are well aware of this. They don't want their platforms used to undermine the democratic process. What are they going to do about it? So before we chat about this, we do want to note that Facebook is among among NPR's financial supporters on Let's turn out. NPR's Shannon Bond, who's been looking at all of this is in San Francisco. Good morning, Shannon. Good morning, David. So you're talking to social media companies about these fears? What are they telling you? Well, you know, they've been thinking about the election and misinformation for a long time, looking back to the lessons of 2016 when Russia used social media to try to manipulate voters, and also you know that things like the 2018 midterms other elections around the world. A lot of this planning takes the form of these threats, modeling exercises, So the companies you know, come up with different attacks and then game out how they would respond. You'll Roth, who leads site integrity, a Twitter gave me some examples. A high profile figures account gets taken over to the possibility of a large scale spam or bought attack to the risks of foreign interference like we saw in 2016. This time, As Facebook's chief operating officer, Sheryl Sandberg, told all things considered this week. You know, these companies were concerned about what happens not just before the election, but also after November, 3rd Both Twitter and Facebook say they're now going to be cracking down on post that say, For example, voting by mail is somehow fraudulent post that advocate violence to disrupt the transfer of power or premature claims of victory, and they'll do that by either labeling are removing We should say that some of these kinds of messages on DH spreading doubts have come from none other than the president of the United States himself. I mean, does that fact complicate things for these companies and what they could do? All right. We heard this again from President Trump this week at the debate. He's suggested he might not accept the results of this election. You know, In the case of Facebook, this company has come around pretty reluctantly to the idea that they might have to somehow moderate what the president says. And of course, we've had elections before where we've had to wait to find out who won remember back in 2000, the Bush versus Gore fight that dragged on for more than a month after Election Day, but disinformation expert Clint Watts says, you know we live in a different world now. Yeah, There's some angry lawyers and Bush versus core, but Is pretty tame compared to today. And of course, there wasn't Twitter or Facebook 20 years ago. It's true, and I mean you cover these companies. Twitter Facebook. Are they up to this? I mean, if this becomes a real mess Well, you know, this is not just about the rules that they're making its about whether they enforced thes rules and enforce them consistently. And frankly, the track record isn't particularly great. You know, Facebook specifically has come under a lot of criticism. For just not doing that not enforcing things evenly. Just this week. The Biden campaign called Facebook quote the nation's foremost propagator of disinformation about the voting process. Because it's chosen toe label and not take down a post by Trump attacked voting Now Facebook insists it applies its policies fairly. But you know, to answer the question. We just don't know if the social networks can hold the line after the election.

"sheryl sandberg" Discussed on WSJ Tech News Briefing

"Last week John spoke with Facebook Coo Sheryl Sandberg Zoom Call, , and we've got their conversation for you as an extended show today. . John Obviously people know Sandberg as Facebook, Coo. , . But what else should they know about her? ? She's very well known in the tech industry, , but also in in circles of leadership in advocacy for women in leadership minorities, , leadership <hes>. . But yeah, , the most visible role she plays as the number two to mark facebook in that has been enrolled. . That's been developing over more than a decade and prior to that, , she was a in early employee at Google and played role in the Clinton administration as well. . Of course, , there's been a lot going on facebook and we've reported on it along the way, , but they're kind of always as. . So. . Why talk to San Merck now it's been particularly busy summer and there was a lot to talk about on the call. . You know you've had this advertising boycott. . You've had a lot more questions about their willingness to police hate speech and and make sure that civil rights are being protected on the platform <hes>. . You've also had <hes> this run up to the election and a lot of focus on small business and what they can do during a pandemic both to stop the spread of misinformation and help small business stay afloat. . Cheryl's also well known for her foundation Leinen, , and at the time that we talked, , it was a black women's payday and Kamala Harris had just been tapped as the vice presidential candidate for Joe Biden. . Leinen had just done this study that <hes> pointed out some things that are fairly obvious. . But maybe we didn't realize how cute the problems really are, , and that was related to advancement opportunities for minority women in Business <hes> both leadership management opportunities just their ability to move forward in their careers. . Here's what she told us the data's incredible right now, , men are doing a lot to men are doing an average of fifty hours a week of childcare and housework. . That's something. We've . never ever seen before women doing an average of seventy one. . And Black Women and women of color doing even more that GOP is twenty one hours and single mothers, , many of whom are of color but single mothers of all backgrounds are doing twice as many hours per week caring for elderly or sick relatives as well and doing a great majority of childcare and we know that all of these numbers hit women who were core hit poor families harder than wealthier families across the board. . But even amongst the elite, , what you almost always see is the average woman even if she's working full-time is doing a lot more in the home than the average man and that is a big part of what happens to us in the workforce. . Until we get to a quality in the home, , we're never getting to a quality in the workplace and that has become even more urgent with coronavirus. . These are all important issues to the Wall Street Journal, , we cover these things all the time we've been covering them aggressively and comprehensively, , but we could only manage to get so much in today's episode. . So with the issue at hand is clearly. . The election and facebook's huge role to play. . They're given what happened in two, , thousand, , sixteen and expectations in the twenty twenty and that's the part of the conversation we wanted to share with listeners today. . Thanks John. . A couple of things. . We should note here this was a video call. . So it's got that feel to it and it was recorded last week we've got that conversation after the break. . Robotics, , artificial intelligence augmented reality. . The future is here listen to tomorrow today with the Wall Street Journal's future of everything the podcast that takes you to the frontlines of science and tech and shows you what's coming next. . Look ahead. . What do you hear? ? The future of everything from the Wall Street Journal Subscribe Wherever you get your podcasts. . I want to set the context of you know of the problems and our criticisms aimed at your company, , not just Sheryl Sandberg the executive, , but the user of facebook is well I I. . I have to assume that you're not just running a company that you're using the product. . The company faces <hes> a Lotta Chris the you know. . The the frustration about incentivizing the you know spreading misinformation allegedly incentivizing that extremely provocative in hateful speech that that gets through and get seen sometimes gets pushed up in our news feeds. . The suspicion facebook is still a place for unwholesome characters and actors can manipulate the system in use misinformation to get results that they're looking for etc.. . Nah Not. . Not so much yet about the solutions that you guys have put in place in the learnings but how do you feel today about facebook is a place against the backdrop of those criticisms so we do face a lot of those criticisms and anytime you have a platform as large as ours you know three billion plus people on it many many of them daily. . We have huge responsibility. . And I think that is a responsibility that we really had to grow into. . When I look at this election, , we are a different company than we were in twenty sixteen and we are going into this election in a very different place in touches on all of the issues that you you're talking about. . So let's go back to answer your question to twenty sixteen if you think about the election in two, , thousand sixteen. . We obviously had systems in place to defend against attacks from other states. . But what those normally or thought of what we thought of them I think everyone of them was. . People with hacking steal your data, , remember the DNC emails remember Sony. . That was basically what state actors did, , and we've had very good systems in place in great defenses there what we completely missed in two thousand sixteen was not going in and stealing your stuff. . But was going in and writing stuff. . Fake host trying to get audiences to believe things in ways that you were representing. . That's what happened with Russian interference and we completely missed it. . So did the FBI. . So did every government of the world? ? That is just not true when you think about the election in twenty eighteen and you think about being election today. . We now understand this threat and are deeply engaged in working on it, , but we're also not on our own homeland security has a department on miss the FBI has a task force on this in two thousand sixteen we call these groups coordinated inauthentic behaviour. . So coordinated authentic like we saw the Russian fake posts in twenty sixteen, , we took down networks we'd never heard of it twenty seventeen we took down one. . In. . The last year we took down over fifty. . We now do these. . So often at people used to write stories, , we've Allah publicly. . No one even does does that mean we're going to catch every single thing I will never claim that we will always have every single thing the services big. . But does that mean we're in a very different place going into this election Absolutely. . And one retake really seriously. . We're also trying to get even more proactive on the good like on facebook there's things they're stopping the bad stopping the hate stopping interference with there's also promoting the good at, , and that's something that I care a lot about mark as a lot of Bob. . So we want yesterday. . So it's perfectly timely to talk to you about it, , our new voter information center and what that Information Center is a one stop shop where you can go to get accurate information on this election. . That's never been more important registering to vote who's eligible that stuff's always hard. . But in this election with corona virus and holes potentially closed getting accurate information is even more important. . So We'd put this out. . It's modeled on our coronavirus center where we put out very definitive information really helped people get the right answers. . Now anytime people post about voting on facebook working a link to this center. . We're also trying to be as ambitious as we can. . I'm a woman I'm I'm owning the word ambitious, , but it's ambition by my company. . To Register people. . So in the last two elections, , we registered two million people to vote. . which is very large, , but we've put out pretty audacious goal that we're GONNA try to help register four million people for this election cycle, , which I think would make it the largest effort of its kind by were invasion and were really. . We're really proud of that really excited about it. . So we I sit here John Taking, , you take the criticism when we deserve it very seriously. . We take our responsibility very seriously atop to show work every day trying to stop anything bad we gotTA learn quickly bad will always try to get ahead but also trying to use our platform in our services for the good. . What do you do as the user? ? Something on facebook doesn't along there. . Do you just pull the red phone out and make a phone call or are you pensive about that and thinking about emits broader context at it needs the nuance as market said it's very hard. . To directly police the content and and just hit the button? ? Yes. . So look it is hard to directly police the content. . We know that it's very hard to pull heat down. . It's very hard to find it and identified. That's . why we've invested so much think our standards are the highest not the lowest I think our enforcements the best, , but that doesn't make it perfect. . You know as a user I actually don't remember seeing something that violated our policies and most people have not most people hear about it or it gets pulled into press and they see it now. . I've certainly seen things I. Disagree . with I have some family members whose political views I do not share. . You know I have some ice stuff about fuck I disagree with. . But in terms of my actual experience of seeing real hate yes I would pull I. . Don't have a bat phone, , but I would definitely take a screen shot in forwarded. . Personally, , referred infant I haven't had that experience or know how many people actually do see content that violates the rules is there a way to kind of measure that? ? Millions of people report content millions of not not all of it is actually violated with our standards but millions of people go through that process. . In fact, , we released our latest community standards enforcement report, , and it gets to exactly what you're asking what that shows. . Is All the different kinds of content we take down how much? ? How much violence? ? Were Nagasaki and it shows what percentage of it. . We took down and found ourselves or someone reported to us. . And that's where the progress on hate I think really becomes clear when we first did this report years ago, , twenty, , four percent of the hate we took down, , we found ourselves which meant that seventy, , six percent of the time someone had reported it to us. . That's not a good experience. . Our latest report we put out this week were at ninety, , five, , ninety, five , percent of the hate that we take down we are finding before it's reported. . That means five percent of what we take down is still being reported to us, , which is still alive on facebook. So . we have our work cut out for us, , but clearly a significant improvement over twenty four percent just a few years ago and it to really the investments we've made in systems in AI in. . Huge teams to monitor that's gotten us. . There are your standards tough. . Enough I mean that's something that we know is a sticky situation because everybody wants what they find to be offensive police in. . As you said, , sometimes it borders on my own bias is what I don't WanNa see. . But when you look at the standards, , where are you guys at particularly because they have in freshly criticized and there's rolling dialogue about whether whether you're going to get tougher? ? Where are we met? ? Her students are very tough but they're not as tough as some people would want them to be or they're not as comprehensive as some people would want them to be you know one person's opinion. . One person's free expression could be another person's he. . We work really hard on these definitions and were very public about the our entire standards are publicly out there including most to the material that the people who use inside their references that were very public about them. . You know for the most part, , we've always been a very protected society and the criticism has always been on both sides I'll give you an example that was very hot for a while was breastfeeding. . We don't do pornography, , we don't do breasts. . In some parts of the world, , a new woman who's naked from the top would be on the front page of every newspaper, , and there are people that really believe in breastfeeding. It . felt that we were suppressing their free speech because our computer systems were picking up any time. . You saw a nipple of any kind even if it was a breastfeeding picture so we've worked more nuance there, , but I think over the course of time, , people have found us to be very strict on the standards. . There are people out there that think are hit standards aren't strong enough. . We are continually evaluating them continually making improvements. . But I think a lot of people think our standards are too hard and so we try to be as transparent as possible. . We try to evolve to meet ongoing things that are things. We'd . never heard of no one ever heard of years ago. . That are brand new movements that are hateful and there are things that some people find offensive that we do leave up because we think three expression in having that too is critically important in a lot of situations sodden. . You're thinking on your role as an information broker during corona virus. . How did that? ? I emerge and how did you deal with that at facebook given? ? All of the things that the most elite elite medical personnel don't know in yet. . Here you are with the responsibility of not disseminating misinformation that may cost people's lives or fan pandemic. . So our policy on misinformation is we don't take down we send it to third party fact checkers if it's marked as false or partially false, , we dramatically decrease the distribution we market this has been marked false or partially falls and we linked to more information that often can tell the whole side of the story. . Even, , before Corona virus, , we had an exception to that, , which is information that was going to cause imminent harm and that policy really came out of other parts of the world. . Misinformation was leading to death or imminent harm. . The Corona virus we took the stand to things we said we're not going to have information that will lead to imminent harm. . And we're going to rely on health experts. . We are not decided there was no decision made by your marker anyone on our team. . This is true about coronavirus and this is not because we're not experts but we partnered from the beginning with local health authorities the CDC the. . H. Show the you know the health ministers in different countries to make sure that we were taking down misinformation. . No matter who posted it up would also give very accurate information out and I think sometimes in these discussions, , we forget that there are two sides. . Of course, , we need to take down at least marcus false things that are harmful, , but we also have to use our services. . To, , get out the information people need. . So governments like the UK, , government local governments when they needed to get messages to their citizens, , they've turned on us and we've been I think a very effective way of getting messages out. . Interested. . In in several high profile advertisers including some that I shot from it said, , we're gonNA take a break and it wasn't just facebook it with social media have companies come back and what what are those conversations and like I know. . The effect on the bottom line may not be what well understood you do rely. So . heavily on smaller and middle sized companies for revenue but but it was a huge moment, , a big headline where where are you guys at conversations are they back? ? So advertisers are starting to come back not but a good number are coming back have come back in process. . Look those conversations were really hard John because normally. . If someone is boycotting you or is protesting you want you to do a whatever a is in. . You don't want to do it. . That's not the case at all here the boycotters and the advertisers didn't want hate on facebook and we don't want this book Sosa. . I think we had completely aligned goals and we have challenges in enforcing that. . So again, , we just released our enforcement report. . We were at eighty nine percent of finding hate we take down ourselves. . Now we're up to ninety five. . That's an improvement and we know we have we have further to go. . We also do have some notice agreement with people on what hate is we tend to take a broader swath of allowing some information that we think it's free expression to stay on so that people can have dialogue but in terms of hate, , I think the real issue is that there's a fundamental misunderstanding of our service out there that we need to do a better job correcting we don't want. . Hey. . We don't benefit from hey, , we don't profit from hey users don't want to see it. . Consumers don't WANNA. . See it. . Advertisers don't want to be next to it. . So the the narrative of facebook is leaving pay because they WANNA profit for. . That's just just you talked about voters earlier and the initiatives that you're putting your proactively being part of a solution is what I hear you saying. . But Marquez said very recently with this electric this unprecedented situation and I'm I'm guessing given your. . Your half glass full mentality it's an opportunity but what's at stake here for facebook I? ? Mean we're all GonNa Blaine facebook if things go wrong and a certain candidate <hes> decides to use the platform and you're not taking down information with speed or at all is it a noble no-win situation here or what's at stake for this platforms ability to prove its productive place in this discussion? ? So we all know that there's a lot at stake for the selection full stop. . There's more concern in confusion about how to register to vote what is valid I think there's more concern around misinformation around any kind of coordinated attacks. . I think we're going into this election in a totally different place than twenty sixteen and interestingly, , I think our track record in twenty eighteen was actually fairly good when people talk about things facebook missed in an election getting upset at us for things that are almost always talking about twenty sixteen you almost never hear about twenty eighteen and there have been hundreds of elections around the world and to look our job is to get people accurate information to be proactive. . We are being much more proactive around. . Pushing out information in this election and we have or have been before, , and that is modeled on what we did with Toronto virus. . We are taking that approach doing everything to get rid of the bad. . We are doing everything to get in front of people the accurate information as well. . And then we want to make sure that people can use the prop. . One thing that's worth really thinking about is how many small people small people running for smaller offices. . Are Using our platform provisionally when we're in social distancing and can't campaign. . That's right. . So how do you advertise to? ? No one's ever heard of me. . I'm running for State Senate or I'm running for school board and I want to do it cheaply and efficiently we allow that to happen and we're proud of that role replied. . There are you prepared I mean thinking about four more years of questions regarding how quickly you should be policing the president and his tweets given the thus far has a track record that trump is definitely more aggressive with platform <unk> Vice President Biden ever has been he trump wins. . You're already in a in a in a situation where you guys are have been accused of dragging your feet on or taking a less aggressive stance against him. . How do you think about that in a world where we might see four more years of that? ? It's our. . It's our job to have clear and consistent rules. . That, , we apply in a fair way globally and I know we are very focused that we should be very focused on this election. . There are important elections all over the world with people on different sides, , and so we have experienced not just in the US cycle, , but obviously the hundreds of elections that have happened since since last US cycle and we do we. . Get accused from conservatives of being anti-conservative. . They look it. . Awesome. . A see liberal silicon, , Valley company I mean, , I've been very affiliated Democrat. . I remain unaffiliated Democrat other people look at us and they say we're not going far enough and our answer is going to be very clear about what our rules are and working apply them as even handed away as possible we also. . Recognize that there should be limits to our power to decide what stays up in. . Probably one of the most important things that's going to happen in the upcoming twelve months is the rollout of our content for which we've announced but has not yet come together to play. So . for the first time, , there's GonNa be a possibility that if you either have something taken down. . And you think that's unfair or you take it down or you WanNa leave up in either direction, , you can appeal it to the content board in your case much like the court right they'll have more than they can but they'll try to hear the big months. . Someone else will decide and that board is independent does not report to mark does not report to me. . Were also working with governments around the world. . We think government has a very big role to play. . Wouldn't it be good if governments to find hate rather than private companies would you be good if governments defined what is a political ad? ? Not Private companies were working hard to make sure that there are checks and balances and that the government's role is really important not just here around the world. . You're not just the Democrat I mean you're you're a friend of the president <hes> presidential candidate on the Democratic ticket at an I I don't know the. . Friendship, but , definitely, , it's been noted that the two of you have relationship you've been support I'm wondering if you're kind of jaw drops a little bit about the delicate role that you need to play his business leader given facebook's place in society if you're running Ben and Jerry's, , which is much smaller if you're running. . Patagonia. . If you were running for Motor Company, , you probably feel a little bit more free an mistaken to be supportive and to give the porch that you want to feel it all that your your ability to help is checked by your role <unk>. . I mean, , my day job is facebook and my nights on Facebook, , and then you know I work on my foundation as well, , and so it is not my job to be very active in the political process and I've chosen a career that keeps me in business. . So I don't wake up in the morning. . You know what should I be doing politics 'cause I wake up in the morning with a very big job for facebook I. . think that's consistent with business leaders. . You know as a woman and as a woman who's long fought for the role of women to have more to celebrate ambition to celebrate what we're reaching for the highest office I'm thrilled to see a woman about to be nominated a woman of color about to be nominated and I spoke out anatomy horse I would do. . Of course, , I would do that and my foundation has done that as well. . Do need to think twice about how supportive I mean it it's not a heavy lifting to be supportive publicly. . Meaning you don't have to put in a lot of hours, , but like running a news organization, , I mean it kind of is a proxy for what facebook has become what we think of as a neutral platform even well, , I've said, , we're GONNA work with anyone who wins for us. . So when I'm asked when you work with trump, , if he wins the election, , will you work with Biden if he sorry president trump if he wins the election we work with Vice, , President Biden. . Of course, , we don't get to pick. . Citizens elect their governments and we work with them, and , we work with all over the world and we have to be willing and able to do that. . Would you work for President Biden if there was a president Biden, , you know I have a long decided I had my time. . I worked at the Treasury Department under President Clinton and it was an amazing opportunity. . What about the open seat in California right now not interested at all I mean. . I really love my job and I really have so much respect for mark and my colleagues. . Every day is not easy I don't expect anyone feel sorry for me or any of us we have great opportunities big role to play. . We have serious responsibility to get this election right? ? We have serious responsibility to get hate and you know misogyny off the platform. . against, , wake up every business, , I feel lucky to have this opportunity and I feel lucky to work for someone who is strong and has such conditions as mark. . Are you having a guest one final question is the enormity of that task of getting it right. . Your back and forth about what that looks like all day. . But getting it right as a business challenge. . Also, , when I say this, , I wonder if you are amazed at the trajectory of the importance of this as a public trust, , almost as a is an institution and we aren't just considering a business but has a responsibility to society. . Is there one? ? That outweighs the other giving you have shareholders, others, , , or is there is there a way to balance those two things at the same time? ? These things that people think are in conflict sometimes, , but I really don't think they are we need people to trust our service we need people to trust that we're GONNA make content decisions not for profit on either side. . But for the right for the right reasons and to doing the things that need our responsibility to protect elections takedown hit, , they don't trade off against the business. . They're important to drive the business. . Now, , there is a resource tradeoff rehiring engineer. . We can put them on an ad program to build rags ads we can put them on safety we can put them on security. . Of course, , we have resource trade-offs, , research trips of my time reserves tradeoffs mark if you look at how do our jobs and you compare it to for years ago, , Mark Myself All of our senior leaders Chris Cox who just came back. . Incredible. . Chief Product Officer Mike Shrimp for our incredible. . CTO We all spend a lot more of our time on the protection of the community. . Then we did five years ago but I think that is super important and for a while we were playing catch up and I think all of these things work together. . There's not a trade offs. . We have to absolutely meet our responsibility and build our business and without meeting our responsibility, , we're not going to build Turkishness. . Kyi No your plane to grab people from. . What you go <hes>. . Thank you for your time. . It's always nice talking to and. . Until next up. . On. .

Sheryl Sandberg On Facebook and Elections

"Last week John spoke with Facebook Coo Sheryl Sandberg Zoom Call, and we've got their conversation for you as an extended show today. John Obviously people know Sandberg as Facebook, Coo. But what else should they know about her? She's very well known in the tech industry, but also in in circles of leadership in advocacy for women in leadership minorities, leadership But yeah, the most visible role she plays as the number two to mark facebook in that has been enrolled.

Why talk to San Merck now it's been particularly busy summer and there was a lot to talk about on the call. You know you've had this advertising boycott. You've had a lot more questions about their willingness to police hate speech and and make sure that civil rights are being protected on the platform You've also had this run up to the election and a lot of focus on small business and what they can do during a pandemic both to stop the spread of misinformation and help small business stay afloat. Cheryl's also well known for her foundation Leinen, and at the time that we talked, it was a black women's payday and Kamala Harris had just been tapped as the vice presidential candidate for Joe Biden. Leinen had just done this study that pointed out some things that are fairly obvious. But maybe we didn't realize how cute the problems really are, and that was related to advancement opportunities for minority women in Business both leadership management opportunities just their ability to move forward in their careers. Here's what she told us the data's incredible right now, men are doing a lot to men are doing an average of fifty hours a week of childcare and housework. That's something. We've never ever seen before women doing an average of seventy one. And Black Women and women of color doing even more that GOP is twenty one hours and single mothers, many of whom are of color but single mothers of all backgrounds are doing twice as many hours per week caring for elderly or sick relatives as well and doing a great majority of childcare and we know that all of these numbers hit women who were core hit poor families harder than wealthier families across the board. But even amongst the elite, what you almost always see is the average woman even if she's working full-time is doing a lot more in the home than the average man and that is a big part of what happens to us in the workforce. Until we get to a quality in the home, we're never getting to a quality in the workplace and that has become even more urgent with coronavirus. These are all important issues to the Wall Street Journal, we cover these things all the time we've been covering them aggressively and comprehensively, but we could only manage to get so much in today's episode. So with the issue at hand is clearly. The election and facebook's huge role to play. They're given what happened in two, thousand, sixteen and expectations in the twenty twenty and that's the part of the conversation we wanted to share with listeners today. Thanks John. A couple of things. We should note here this was a video call. So it's got that feel to it and it was recorded last week we've got that conversation after the break. Robotics, artificial intelligence augmented reality. The future is here listen to tomorrow today with the Wall Street Journal's future of everything the podcast that takes you to the frontlines of science and tech and shows you what's coming next. Look ahead. What do you hear? The future of everything from the Wall Street Journal Subscribe Wherever you get your podcasts. I want to set the context of you know of the problems and our criticisms aimed at your company, not just Sheryl Sandberg the executive, but the user of facebook is well I I. I have to assume that you're not just running a company that you're using the product. The company faces a Lotta Chris the you know. The the frustration about incentivizing the you know spreading misinformation allegedly incentivizing that extremely provocative in hateful speech that that gets through and get seen sometimes gets pushed up in our news feeds. The suspicion facebook is still a place for unwholesome characters and actors can manipulate the system in use misinformation to get results that they're looking for etc.. Nah Not. Not so much yet about the solutions that you guys have put in place in the learnings but how do you feel today about facebook is a place against the backdrop of those criticisms so we do face a lot of those criticisms and anytime you have a platform as large as ours you know three billion plus people on it many many of them daily. We have huge responsibility. And I think that is a responsibility that we really had to grow into. When I look at this election, we are a different company than we were in twenty sixteen and we are going into this election in a very different place in touches on all of the issues that you you're talking about. So let's go back to answer your question to twenty sixteen if you think about the election in two, thousand sixteen. We obviously had systems in place to defend against attacks from other states. But what those normally or thought of what we thought of them I think everyone of them was. People with hacking steal your data, remember the DNC emails remember Sony. That was basically what state actors did, and we've had very good systems in place in great defenses there what we completely missed in two thousand sixteen was not going in and stealing your stuff. But was going in and writing stuff. Fake host trying to get audiences to believe things in ways that you were representing. That's what happened with Russian interference and we completely missed it. So did the FBI. So did every government of the world? That is just not true when you think about the election in twenty eighteen and you think about being election today. We now understand this threat and are deeply engaged in working on it, but we're also not on our own homeland security has a department on miss the FBI has a task force on this in two thousand sixteen we call these groups coordinated inauthentic behaviour. So coordinated authentic like we saw the Russian fake posts in twenty sixteen, we took down networks we'd never heard of it twenty seventeen we took down one. In. The last year we took down over fifty. We now do these. So often at people used to write stories, we've Allah publicly. No one even does does that mean we're going to catch every single thing I will never claim that we will always have every single thing the services big. But does that mean we're in a very different place going into this election Absolutely. And one retake really seriously. We're also trying to get even more proactive on the good like on facebook there's things they're stopping the bad stopping the hate stopping interference with there's also promoting the good at, and that's something that I care a lot about mark as a lot of Bob. So we want yesterday. So it's perfectly timely to talk to you about it, our new voter information center and what that Information Center is a one stop shop where you can go to get accurate information on this election. That's never been more important registering to vote who's eligible that stuff's always hard. But in this election with corona virus and holes potentially closed getting accurate information is even more important. So We'd put this out. It's modeled on our coronavirus center where we put out very definitive information really helped people get the right answers. Now anytime people post about voting on facebook working a link to this center. We're also trying to be as ambitious as we can. I'm a woman I'm I'm owning the word ambitious, but it's ambition by my company. To Register people. So in the last two elections, we registered two million people to vote. which is very large, but we've put out pretty audacious goal that we're GONNA try to help register four million people for this election cycle, which I think would make it the largest effort of its kind by were invasion and were really. We're really proud of that really excited about it. So we I sit here John Taking, you take the criticism when we deserve it very seriously. We take our responsibility very seriously atop to show work every day trying to stop anything bad we gotTA learn quickly bad will always try to get ahead but also trying to use our platform in our services for the good. What do you do as the user? Something on facebook doesn't along there. Do you just pull the red phone out and make a phone call or are you pensive about that and thinking about emits broader context at it needs the nuance as market said it's very hard. To directly police the content and and just hit the button? Yes. So look it is hard to directly police the content. We know that it's very hard to pull heat down. It's very hard to find it and identified. That's why we've invested so much think our standards are the highest not the lowest I think our enforcements the best, but that doesn't make it perfect. You know as a user I actually don't remember seeing something that violated our policies and most people have not most people hear about it or it gets pulled into press and they see it now. I've certainly seen things I. Disagree with I have some family members whose political views I do not share. You know I have some ice stuff about fuck I disagree with. But in terms of my actual experience of seeing real hate yes I would pull I. Don't have a bat phone, but I would definitely take a screen shot in forwarded. Personally, referred infant I haven't had that experience or know how many people actually do see content that violates the rules is there a way to kind of measure that? Millions of people report content millions of not not all of it is actually violated with our standards but millions of people go through that process. In fact, we released our latest community standards enforcement report, and it gets to exactly what you're asking what that shows. Is All the different kinds of content we take down how much? How much violence? Were Nagasaki and it shows what percentage of it. We took down and found ourselves or someone reported to us. And that's where the progress on hate I think really becomes clear when we first did this report years ago, twenty, four percent of the hate we took down, we found ourselves which meant that seventy, six percent of the time someone had reported it to us. That's not a good experience. Our latest report we put out this week were at ninety, five, ninety, five percent of the hate that we take down we are finding before it's reported. That means five percent of what we take down is still being reported to us, which is still alive on facebook. So we have our work cut out for us, but clearly a significant improvement over twenty four percent just a few years ago and it to really the investments we've made in systems in AI in. Huge teams to monitor that's gotten us. There are your standards tough. Enough I mean that's something that we know is a sticky situation because everybody wants what they find to be offensive police in. As you said, sometimes it borders on my own bias is what I don't WanNa see. But when you look at the standards, where are you guys at particularly because they have in freshly criticized and there's rolling dialogue about whether whether you're going to get tougher? Where are we met? Her students are very tough but they're not as tough as some people would want them to be or they're not as comprehensive as some people would want them to be you know one person's opinion. One person's free expression could be another person's he. We work really hard on these definitions and were very public about the our entire standards are publicly out there including most to the material that the people who use inside their references that were very public about them. You know for the most part, we've always been a very protected society and the criticism has always been on both sides I'll give you an example that was very hot for a while was breastfeeding. We don't do pornography, we don't do breasts. In some parts of the world, a new woman who's naked from the top would be on the front page of every newspaper, and there are people that really believe in breastfeeding. It felt that we were suppressing their free speech because our computer systems were picking up any time. You saw a nipple of any kind even if it was a breastfeeding picture so we've worked more nuance there, but I think over the course of time, people have found us to be very strict on the standards. There are people out there that think are hit standards aren't strong enough. We are continually evaluating them continually making improvements. But I think a lot of people think our standards are too hard and so we try to be as transparent as possible. We try to evolve to meet ongoing things that are things. We'd never heard of no one ever heard of years ago. That are brand new movements that are hateful and there are things that some people find offensive that we do leave up because we think three expression in having that too is critically important in a lot of situations sodden. You're thinking on your role as an information broker during corona virus. How did that? I emerge and how did you deal with that at facebook given? All of the things that the most elite elite medical personnel don't know in yet. Here you are with the responsibility of not disseminating misinformation that may cost people's lives or fan pandemic. So our policy on misinformation is we don't take down we send it to third party fact checkers if it's marked as false or partially false, we dramatically decrease the distribution we market this has been marked false or partially falls and we linked to more information that often can tell the whole side of the story. Even, before Corona virus, we had an exception to that, which is information that was going to cause imminent harm and that policy really came out of other parts of the world. Misinformation was leading to death or imminent harm. The Corona virus we took the stand to things we said we're not going to have information that will lead to imminent harm. And we're going to rely on health experts. We are not decided there was no decision made by your marker anyone on our team. This is true about coronavirus and this is not because we're not experts but we partnered from the beginning with local health authorities the CDC the. H. Show the you know the health ministers in different countries to make sure that we were taking down misinformation. No matter who posted it up would also give very accurate information out and I think sometimes in these discussions, we forget that there are two sides. Of course, we need to take down at least marcus false things that are harmful, but we also have to use our services. To, get out the information people need. So governments like the UK, government local governments when they needed to get messages to their citizens, they've turned on us and we've been I think a very effective way of getting messages out. Interested. In in several high profile advertisers including some that I shot from it said, we're gonNA take a break and it wasn't just facebook it with social media have companies come back and what what are those conversations and like I know. The effect on the bottom line may not be what well understood you do rely. So heavily on smaller and middle sized companies for revenue but but it was a huge moment, a big headline where where are you guys at conversations are they back? So advertisers are starting to come back not but a good number are coming back have come back in process. Look those conversations were really hard John because normally. If someone is boycotting you or is protesting you want you to do a whatever a is in. You don't want to do it. That's not the case at all here the boycotters and the advertisers didn't want hate on facebook and we don't want this book Sosa. I think we had completely aligned goals and we have challenges in enforcing that. So again, we just released our enforcement report. We were at eighty nine percent of finding hate we take down ourselves. Now we're up to ninety five. That's an improvement and we know we have we have further to go. We also do have some notice agreement with people on what hate is we tend to take a broader swath of allowing some information that we think it's free expression to stay on so that people can have dialogue but in terms of hate, I think the real issue is that there's a fundamental misunderstanding of our service out there that we need to do a better job correcting we don't want. Hey. We don't benefit from hey, we don't profit from hey users don't want to see it. Consumers don't WANNA. See it. Advertisers don't want to be next to it. So the the narrative of facebook is leaving pay because they WANNA profit for. That's just just you talked about voters earlier and the initiatives that you're putting your proactively being part of a solution is what I hear you saying. But Marquez said very recently with this electric this unprecedented situation and I'm I'm guessing given your. Your half glass full mentality it's an opportunity but what's at stake here for facebook I? Mean we're all GonNa Blaine facebook if things go wrong and a certain candidate decides to use the platform and you're not taking down information with speed or at all is it a noble no-win situation here or what's at stake for this platforms ability to prove its productive place in this discussion? So we all know that there's a lot at stake for the selection full stop. There's more concern in confusion about how to register to vote what is valid I think there's more concern around misinformation around any kind of coordinated attacks. I think we're going into this election in a totally different place than twenty sixteen and interestingly, I think our track record in twenty eighteen was actually fairly good when people talk about things facebook missed in an election getting upset at us for things that are almost always talking about twenty sixteen you almost never hear about twenty eighteen and there have been hundreds of elections around the world and to look our job is to get people accurate information to be proactive. We are being much more proactive around. Pushing out information in this election and we have or have been before, and that is modeled on what we did with Toronto virus. We are taking that approach doing everything to get rid of the bad. We are doing everything to get in front of people the accurate information as well. And then we want to make sure that people can use the prop. One thing that's worth really thinking about is how many small people small people running for smaller offices. Are Using our platform provisionally when we're in social distancing and can't campaign. That's right. So how do you advertise to? No one's ever heard of me. I'm running for State Senate or I'm running for school board and I want to do it cheaply and efficiently we allow that to happen and we're proud of that role replied. There are you prepared I mean thinking about four more years of questions regarding how quickly you should be policing the president and his tweets given the thus far has a track record that trump is definitely more aggressive with platform Vice President Biden ever has been he trump wins. You're already in a in a in a situation where you guys are have been accused of dragging your feet on or taking a less aggressive stance against him. How do you think about that in a world where we might see four more years of that? It's our. It's our job to have clear and consistent rules. That, we apply in a fair way globally and I know we are very focused that we should be very focused on this election. There are important elections all over the world with people on different sides, and so we have experienced not just in the US cycle, but obviously the hundreds of elections that have happened since since last US cycle and we do we. Get accused from conservatives of being anti-conservative. They look it. Awesome. A see liberal silicon, Valley company I mean, I've been very affiliated Democrat. I remain unaffiliated Democrat other people look at us and they say we're not going far enough and our answer is going to be very clear about what our rules are and working apply them as even handed away as possible we also. Recognize that there should be limits to our power to decide what stays up in. Probably one of the most important things that's going to happen in the upcoming twelve months is the rollout of our content for which we've announced but has not yet come together to play. So for the first time, there's GonNa be a possibility that if you either have something taken down. And you think that's unfair or you take it down or you WanNa leave up in either direction, you can appeal it to the content board in your case much like the court right they'll have more than they can but they'll try to hear the big months. Someone else will decide and that board is independent does not report to mark does not report to me. Were also working with governments around the world. We think government has a very big role to play. Wouldn't it be good if governments to find hate rather than private companies would you be good if governments defined what is a political ad? Not Private companies were working hard to make sure that there are checks and balances and that the government's role is really important not just here around the world. You're not just the Democrat I mean you're you're a friend of the president presidential candidate on the Democratic ticket at an I I don't know the. Friendship, but definitely, it's been noted that the two of you have relationship you've been support I'm wondering if you're kind of jaw drops a little bit about the delicate role that you need to play his business leader given facebook's place in society if you're running Ben and Jerry's, which is much smaller if you're running. Patagonia. If you were running for Motor Company, you probably feel a little bit more free an mistaken to be supportive and to give the porch that you want to feel it all that your your ability to help is checked by your role I mean, my day job is facebook and my nights on Facebook, and then you know I work on my foundation as well, and so it is not my job to be very active in the political process and I've chosen a career that keeps me in business. So I don't wake up in the morning. You know what should I be doing politics 'cause I wake up in the morning with a very big job for facebook I. think that's consistent with business leaders. You know as a woman and as a woman who's long fought for the role of women to have more to celebrate ambition to celebrate what we're reaching for the highest office I'm thrilled to see a woman about to be nominated a woman of color about to be nominated and I spoke out anatomy horse I would do. Of course, I would do that and my foundation has done that as well. Do need to think twice about how supportive I mean it it's not a heavy lifting to be supportive publicly. Meaning you don't have to put in a lot of hours, but like running a news organization, I mean it kind of is a proxy for what facebook has become what we think of as a neutral platform even well, I've said, we're GONNA work with anyone who wins for us. So when I'm asked when you work with trump, if he wins the election, will you work with Biden if he sorry president trump if he wins the election we work with Vice, President Biden. Of course, we don't get to pick. Citizens elect their governments and we work with them, and we work with all over the world and we have to be willing and able to do that. Would you work for President Biden if there was a president Biden, you know I have a long decided I had my time. I worked at the Treasury Department under President Clinton and it was an amazing opportunity. What about the open seat in California right now not interested at all I mean. I really love my job and I really have so much respect for mark and my colleagues. Every day is not easy I don't expect anyone feel sorry for me or any of us we have great opportunities big role to play. We have serious responsibility to get this election right? We have serious responsibility to get hate and you know misogyny off the platform. against, wake up every business, I feel lucky to have this opportunity and I feel lucky to work for someone who is strong and has such conditions as mark. Are you having a guest one final question is the enormity of that task of getting it right. Your back and forth about what that looks like all day. But getting it right as a business challenge. Also, when I say this, I wonder if you are amazed at the trajectory of the importance of this as a public trust, almost as a is an institution and we aren't just considering a business but has a responsibility to society. Is there one? That outweighs the other giving you have shareholders, others, or is there is there a way to balance those two things at the same time? These things that people think are in conflict sometimes, but I really don't think they are we need people to trust our service we need people to trust that we're GONNA make content decisions not for profit on either side. But for the right for the right reasons and to doing the things that need our responsibility to protect elections takedown hit, they don't trade off against the business. They're important to drive the business. Now, there is a resource tradeoff rehiring engineer. We can put them on an ad program to build rags ads we can put them on safety we can put them on security. Of course, we have resource trade-offs, research trips of my time reserves tradeoffs mark if you look at how do our jobs and you compare it to for years ago, Mark Myself All of our senior leaders Chris Cox who just came back. Incredible. Chief Product Officer Mike Shrimp for our incredible. CTO We all spend a lot more of our time on the protection of the community. Then we did five years ago but I think that is super important and for a while we were playing catch up and I think all of these things work together. There's not a trade offs. We have to absolutely meet our responsibility and build our business and without meeting our responsibility, we're not going to build Turkishness. Kyi No your plane to grab people from. What you go Thank you for your time. It's always nice talking to and. Until next up. On.

"Tonight on next chapter I'm in silicon. Valley for a power lunch with facebook's co-pilot. We discuss her famous boss, the myth of having it all, and how in the world? She juggles the demand of one billion facebook, users. Don't tell me that Donna Karen. Donna care. That really. Got Him so glad that would be an honor. To. Have you hear. So excited to be here. The Fleas Street cafe is a Silicon Valley Institution. This is where Cheryl and Mark Zuckerberg. I met to discuss the possibility of her joining facebook. Their partnership is now one of the most well known in business history. These are unbelievable. That's how you that's how you get me. Start with the biscuits, so you can't have a biscuit when it's torn now. You have to do that, so we're here at the flea. Street cafe. Welcome nice to have you in California again your neighborhood, my neighborhood I live around the corner. And you came here for your very first meeting, or shall we call it date way Mark Zuckerberg it was, and it did. It was date like in the sense that you're nervous. Yes, it's a dinner. You're getting to know each other, but we had our dinner I very i. only dinner we ever. Weren't were in public together until we announced I was coming to facebook, obviously went, will well yes well. We actually stayed so late. The restaurant was kind of closing down. We wanted to keep talking. That's a good one ten o'clock at night way past my bedtime, but he clearly wanted to keep talking and he was mark Zuckerberg so I said well. It's WANNA come over, so we came over and around midnight I had to say like time to go time to go. My kids are getting up at five hours, so we're GONNA have to. Was the process like like dating? Though was it like a court courtship trying to figure out whether work, or did you know after that first meeting that it's on? I knew after that first meaning how warm he was, and how nice he was, and how much he cared about facebook, but it was definitely a process of getting to know each other when you first started the job. Will you staying up late at night? Worrying about the pressures that you earned, did it keep you up at night? Yeah, yeah, it did and the pressures I was under to make facebook what it needed to be wooden mark and I get along. Would we have the relationship? We'd need to have very unique relationship where he runs the company I run part of the company working for him. We really need to trust each other. You know he was fifteen years younger than I was. When I was interviewing with him one night, we were supposed to talk and it was like. Nine o'clock at night, and he called, and he said well I'll just call you later and I said well. Let me go to sleep in about thirty minutes, so if you know if you're still at your dinner, we'll talk tomorrow. He calls the next day. It's like. Are you okay like yeah? I'm fine. He's had sick. So number wasn't sick. You said you went to bed at nine thirty. and. I said I wasn't. You know what I do. I go to bed at nine thirty and so I definitely had this fear. That I was going to be too old. Not Understand what he was doing enough, and it was scary at first at first I so you have now written what I have to say. The modern manifesto for women in the workplace, and you call it lean in because. They gotTA lean in. We gotTA leaning. We gotta we courage girls, and you've done this in your own life. Look what you've done with your school. We've got to encourage girls to lead so women have made tons of progress. You look at the opportunities. My mother had my grandmother had. But, we have a really small percentage of the top jobs in any industry in any nation in the world. There are very few Oprah Winfrey's. There are very women who will the kind of influence and have the kind of opportunities you have. Sheryl's new book is a must read for women and men. It's a smart, honest, deeply personal exploration of Cheryl's mission. She wants women to pull their chair up to the table. It starts with a healthy dose of reality. You've said there's no such thing as work life balance. Why? Why is there no work life balance? I think all of these phrases people throw it. Women are so harmful. Having I've I having. You all the time. Heidi you it oh. Yeah, yeah! The worst, no matter how much we all have, and how grateful we are for what we have, no one has it all because we all make trade offs every single day every single minute work life balance. No one ever asks. Have having it all for second because I love it because I don't think you can, you can have it all I feel like I do, but you can't have it all at the same time. That's right and what's happened. If you compare like my generation to my mother's generation, my mother says this all the time and her generation work nine to five Monday to Friday forty hours. No one expected anything else. and. Parenting was actually much more constrained. What's happened now? We are all connected? My indices part of the problem, right? We are connected all the time. We expect our workers, our our colleagues at work to be able and the amount of time mothers spend one on one in that direct child thing with their kids. It's totally changed. My Mother didn't organize play dates. We wrote our bikes. Dates she wasn't with me, you know. My Mother didn't sit there with all my homework. She helped me when I asked. Checked in every so often work has changed and made it more intense and parenting has changed and become more intense and I'm not judging those things they might be bad. They might be good. They make it harder and harder for working women and almost all women in this country. Are, working women and almost all kids are being raised by two or one parent who is in the workforce. Absolutely, How do you get women past the guilty space? I don't have the answer to that. Did you get past it? I am not passed or not passed to try and get past it and I know I want to be passed. I still feel guilty. I taught my kids off in the morning. And they get out of the car. And I see the other mothers were staying all day because they're volunteering and the heart Pang Wo-. Would my kids be better off if I were staying? My husband, Dave. He thinks were heroes. no-one no-one does as much as we do. No one has jobs like ours against home in the way we do, we're fantastic.

Will you staying up late at night? Worrying about the pressures that you earned, did it keep you up at night? Yeah, yeah, it did and the pressures I was under to make facebook what it needed to be wooden mark and I get along. Would we have the relationship? We'd need to have very unique relationship where he runs the company I run part of the company working for him. We really need to trust each other. You know he was fifteen years younger than I was. When I was interviewing with him one night, we were supposed to talk and it was like. Nine o'clock at night, and he called, and he said well I'll just call you later and I said well. Let me go to sleep in about thirty minutes, so if you know if you're still at your dinner, we'll talk tomorrow. He calls the next day. It's like. Are you okay like yeah? I'm fine. He's had sick. So number wasn't sick. You said you went to bed at nine thirty. and. I said I wasn't. You know what I do. I go to bed at nine thirty and so I definitely had this fear. That I was going to be too old. Not Understand what he was doing enough, and it was scary at first at first I so you have now written what I have to say. The modern manifesto for women in the workplace, and you call it lean in because. They gotTA lean in. We gotTA leaning. We gotta we courage girls, and you've done this in your own life. Look what you've done with your school. We've got to encourage girls to lead so women have made tons of progress. You look at the opportunities. My mother had my grandmother had. But, we have a really small percentage of the top jobs in any industry in any nation in the world. There are very few Oprah Winfrey's. There are very women who will the kind of influence and have the kind of opportunities you have. Sheryl's new book is a must read for women and men. It's a smart, honest, deeply personal exploration of Cheryl's mission. She wants women to pull their chair up to the table. It starts with a healthy dose of reality. You've said there's no such thing as work life balance. Why? Why is there no work life balance? I think all of these phrases people throw it. Women are so harmful. Having I've I having. You all the time. Heidi you it oh. Yeah, yeah! The worst, no matter how much we all have, and how grateful we are for what we have, no one has it all because we all make trade offs every single day every single minute work life balance. No one ever asks. Have having it all for second because I love it because I don't think you can, you can have it all I feel like I do, but you can't have it all at the same time. That's right and what's happened. If you compare like my generation to my mother's generation, my mother says this all the time and her generation work nine to five Monday to Friday forty hours. No one expected anything else. and. Parenting was actually much more constrained. What's happened now? We are all connected? My indices part of the problem, right? We are connected all the time. We expect our workers, our our colleagues at work to be able and the amount of time mothers spend one on one in that direct child thing with their kids. It's totally changed. My Mother didn't organize play dates. We wrote our bikes. Dates she wasn't with me, you know. My Mother didn't sit there with all my homework. She helped me when I asked. Checked in every so often work has changed and made it more intense and parenting has changed and become more intense and I'm not judging those things they might be bad. They might be good. They make it harder and harder for working women and almost all women in this country. Are, working women and almost all kids are being raised by two or one parent who is in the workforce. Absolutely, How do you get women past the guilty space? I don't have the answer to that. Did you get past it? I am not passed or not passed to try and get past it and I know I want to be passed. I still feel guilty. I taught my kids off in the morning. And they get out of the car. And I see the other mothers were staying all day because they're volunteering and the heart Pang Wo-. Would my kids be better off if I were staying? My husband, Dave. He thinks were heroes. no-one no-one does as much as we do. No one has jobs like ours against home in the way we do, we're fantastic.

Facebook Helps Entrepreneurs Move Their Shops Online -- for Free

"From wondering. I'm David Brown. And this is business wars daily on this Monday. May Twenty Fifth Happy Memorial Day last week. Facebook made a big announcement for small business. Owners entrepreneurs will soon be able to create virtual storefronts on facebook and instagram using a new feature called facebook shops. The idea facebook. Ceo Sheryl Sandberg says is to help all small businesses but especially the struggling ones according to a recent survey conducted by facebook and the Small Business Roundtable one third of all small businesses in the US have already closed their doors. Another eleven percent say they will fail. Should the economy remain mostly closed for much longer giving continuing social distancing and stay at home orders? Transitioning to online sales may be the only path forward for most smaller companies in its livestream announcement facebook. Ceo Mark Zuckerberg said. We're seeing a lot of small businesses get online for the first time but moving online and especially to mobile friendly. Commerce isn't always easy. The process can be expensive and complicated but facebook. Says it wants to help entrepreneurs solve those problems therefore setting up a new storefront on shops will be free and Sandberg claims. It's easy to. She says it'll only take minutes. The new storefronts are intended to allow merchants. Not just to show their wares but to conduct transactions as well a business owner who is linked. Her existing website to facebook shop will be able to take payment on her website. Alternatively she'll be able to check out customers right on facebook or instagram for a small fee to help users. Simplify what can be complicated back in mechanics. Facebook is partnering with Shop Afyon and other ECOMMERCE engines shop which is based in Canada as well known as the merchant platform for millions of small online businesses behind the scenes. The story that facebook is telling that it's here to help is not surprisingly more nuanced. The new shops feature represents facebook wholehearted foray into commerce with brick and mortar stores restaurants closed online sales of sword and facebook. Once in Zuckerberg told the Financial Times at facebook shops had already been under development. The company sped up its launch to take advantage of the spike in online shopping observers. Say The new feature pits facebook against Amazon and ebay based books partnership with shop of. I should help as we reported right here just a couple of months ago shop. If is aggressively competing with Amazon last year at began investing five billion dollars. Over five years to build a nationwide fulfillment network VAT network is intended to help. American merchants offered two day shipping all over the country. You know just like Amazon and that could be an answer to one problem savvy. Merchants will ask about selling directly from facebook and INSTAGRAM. Who'LL SHIT MY products? Facebook won't but shop if I and other logistics partners will Voila problem solved but let's not forget another albeit smaller. Ecommerce rival Oetzi. The company has made it easy for Solo artists and small companies to build online stores from their bedrooms and Kitchens Oetzi. Share price is up ninety percent this year. According to The Wall Street Journal and REVENUES IN THE FIRST QUARTER. Were double what they were three years ago. The paper reported at sees Growth Spike. Especially during the lockdowns has made one thing extremely clear. Just how many millions of soloists are interested in and capable of starting successful businesses online even if facebook is late to this war for online customers. The company has one significant weapon that Amazon Ebay. Oetzi don't have two point six billion monthly users. It's intuitive to see how shops owners will be able to leverage their facebook and instagram followers to boost sales on shops. According to the verge shops will be found on facebook pages or instagram profiles. Dunkelberg says merchants will also be able to let customers. Virtually try on products like sunglasses and makeup by using reality tools. According to the Wall Street Journal so facebook is giving shops away for free. How will it make money while the answer is simple? Advertising Sheryl Sandberg Toll Madman Jim Cramer that one hundred sixty million small business owners already used facebook's free business tools eight million of them already purchased. Facebook ADS Zuckerberg assumes that if facebook shops owners find the storefronts valuable. They'll want to bid more to buy facebook ads according to NPR. That's where the quote real money will come from. According to the Motley fool too many facebook shops is

Sheryl Sandberg says Facebook wants to help small businesses pay workers and move online amid COVID-19 crisis

"One Facebook now working to quickly remove false information about the corona virus from its platform and it's also giving one hundred million dollars to thirty thousand small businesses help owners who are grappling with the economic effects of the pandemic chief operating officer Sheryl Sandberg talked on CBS this morning these are unprecedented times maybe the defining time of the century and small businesses all around the world are really struggling they are worried that their doors are closing unable to make payroll we announce today working a hundred million dollars in grants mostly cash and some add credits on Facebook is that was spurred Cheryl businesses reaching out saying please we need help yeah business is reaching out directly and were very close to small businesses because you know so many three hundred and forty million small businesses use the Facebook platform I'm a small business owner and I'm listening to you how do I get the money what do I need to do we'll go to Facebook dot com slash grants for business we're gonna ask you to tell us about your business we're gonna ask you tell us what your plans are to weather the storm and how you can use this money more and try to help I also heard that you all are partnering with the W. H. O. the World Health Organization to make sure that the information on Facebook is correct what exactly does that mean what are you all doing what we want people to get accurate information so from the beginning we've been working with the WHL to take down any harmful information debunked claims that are false but I also get their information in front of people has there been a lot of false information do you think on your services that you thought this was necessary well we're definitely always vigilant but in this area we've gone one step further and we're removing things quickly if they're harmful I also think there's a lot of information people need they need information about local school closings they need information with local health organizations but you know Cheryl I think it opens it up to the question of you want to make sure the information is accurate about corona virus but people say when it comes to politics Facebook sometimes knowingly leaves adds up that they know are not true why not do that when it comes to the campaign ads as well well I want to be really clear for this crisis any fake information is down it is down no matter who the sources you can be a politician can be anyone if it's harmful and it's fake it's down but what will you do the same thing going forward about when it comes to politics campaign twenty twenty removing false ads reserve policy not changed on that well what we've really done is made sure that anything that's harmful can't be put on the site in terms of regular content or groups or ads when it comes to generalize political speech whether that's an ads were that we really think that as one company being the arbiter of truth is too much power and something that kind of sounds like we should do it but as soon as we started doing it ever would be like oh my god Facebook's deciding what's true and false and political speech is very heavily scrutinized events Facebook chief operating officer Sheryl Sandberg on CBS

Facebook's Sheryl Sandberg defends her company in interview

"Exclusive interview with Facebook's Sheryl Sandberg and to get the entire series search for buyers market wherever you're listening right now and subscribe. How do you explain to people. I know we lost your trust. And then he lost again. I know he lost it again but trust us we are trying to create an experience which is better for you. Trust us with your data. We're GONNA give the ADS and the content that you wanna see and then sort of break through to the next phase of facebook so we're definitely trying and so one thing is that people are continuing to use us. Growth has been very strong on all of our apps through this whole through this whole time. Now that doesn't mean we don't have to do a lot better. We do and we are working as hard as we can but it does mean that at some fundamental level people still trust the service and people are still use ours. People are still using the service. I think we've always done both. We've always done some growing the company and some protecting the community and I think the criticism of of us is you know we would do anything to grow. That was never the case. We always took a lot of strong action. That was in protecting but I think it's also really fair to say that we did not put enough resources on protecting the community and that has really shifted. The other thing is that we're learning because for every technology you've ever put out there including facebook. There are people use it well. People like Rebecca of our dog hotel. People are raising money for nonprofit and there are people who are trying to do really bad things and as those bads things have happened. We have to learn so go back to Russian interference election in two thousand sixteen. We didn't know what this was. We took down none of it in twenty seventeen we took down one what we call coordinated inauthentic in authentic see. I be coordinated enough any behavior. We took down one network in the last year. We've taken down fifty. That's because we now know what these are and we are searching for them and finding them. It's also because everyone knows what this is so we have a working relationship now with our government the FBI has a task force on this homeland. Security is focused. This was something that we all missed and now we have to work together and I do think. Part of it were mistakes. We made not putting enough resources on protection. We always did some but not enough and that shifted but part of it is that these are threats. That are not just on us there on everyone. When you use one tech platform you use all of them when you try to interfere in an election. Use everything and so I think the tech community I think the government there is a much more heightened awareness of what these things are and all of us working together to try to prevent them. And I think that's really important so you you look at what happened in Twenty Sixteen you. You try to identify the problem. You throw manpower financial resources all of this stuff at it and you're trying to deal you're basically trying to solve the problem as best you can of foreign meddling etc but then you've got all of a sudden you've got a new scandal on your hands as you guys seem to have every two or three months which is now like political ads and you've decided that you are not going to Be The arbiter of what is true. And false in in a political ad despite the fact that Other companies twitter. Google had sort of different stances on this You know without going too deep into it. I mean what is what is the if you've curb misinformation coming from Russia. What is the justification for maintaining this information coming from say President Donald Trump? So I do think this is a really important topic and I do think someone we take really seriously. We've thought about really deeply and there's no perfect answer here if you look at political ads and fact checking political ads. That's really not something anyone is capable of doing and we don't think we can make ourselves the arbiter the truth and I think it's pretty clear that political speeches about as scrutinize this speeches right review. Say something United States something on this pot so if I if if someone who is relatively less known says something. There's almost no scrutiny. You and I say something on this podcast. They'll be scrutiny of this presidential candidate says something in a debate. There's IT's fair to say a lot more scrutiny right. It's hard to argue that almost too much. It's hard to argue that what politicians are skiing isn't scrutinized. In fact the whole process of an election is one politicians has something one politician says something else. You say something's true. I say it's not true. I say something is true. That is the political process in the political debate. And we think that's a really important process and not one. We could ever be the arbiter of truth on. Do you feel like that you've been able to make that case and that and that you've convince people are you just feel like you're you can sort of do whatever you want because your facebook and people have to sort of move along now because there's still a lot of anger you know in the new in the Industry. I work and and look I get personally. I think it's sort of strange that a company that so many people don't trust want that company to be the arbiter of what's true or false but a lot of my colleagues feel like it's just crazy that you would let a blatant lie running an advertisement on facebook so I think what's really important in this is if you actually look at parties both sides all of them have weighed in and asked us to allow political ads to continue. And it's very important to know that that is strongly on the Republican side strong. The Democratic side we're political. Ads are most important and not everyone understand this and again that's on us is for income is for challengers political. Ads are most important for small races for for challengers for someone who doesn't have an established base and that's something we think is really important.

Nell Scovell: 'Ten Years Ago, I Called Out David Letterman. This Month, We Sat Down to Talk'

"Welcome to the frame John Horn ten years ago. TV writer Nelson Avella took a pretty big risk. She published an article calling out her former boss. Late night King David Letterman for running writer's room and a show that favored men scovill has since co authored. Sheryl Sandberg's two thousand thirteen book. Lean in and last year she published a memoir. You're just the funny parts and a few hard truths about sneaking into Hollywood boys club for her latest piece. In Vanity Fair Scoville met with Letterman to finally talk about gender discrimination at late night. Scoville join me in studio and described what it was like to write for Letterman in one thousand nine hundred ninety. Yeah so this was a dream. I'm job for me I had already worked in Los Angeles. I actually worked on the last season of newhart. And I'd written a Simpson's episode road and I finally. After years of sending material to the Letterman people got a call asking me to come in and meet with Dave and like a lot of late night shows not a lot of women in the writer's room. Now there's only been one before I got hired it was Merrill Marco who was a genius and the first head writer on that show and also Dave's girlfriend at the time so I guess I was the first female hired who was in a relationship with Dave so many years after you leave the show in two thousand and nine something compels you to write about your experiences sir. Right Dave was the victim of a blackmail attempt. He was having an affair with one of his assistants Whose boyfriend found her diary and the scheme was that he threatened to write a screenplay about the affair? If Dave didn't give him two million dollars at the same time Nancy Franklin writes a piece in the New Yorker that points out that there were zero female writers on Letterman Leno and Conan. And I have to say Dave's announcement was not surprise. Is anyone who worked on the show knew about his extracurricular activities. But the fact that I'd been gone for twenty years and they'd move backwards awkward as far as gender in the writer's room that was stunning to me and I literally lost sleep so on a fast forward word to a decision you make and certainly there's another party to this conversation which is going back today. Insane I want to have a conversation about about the fact that you didn't respond to what I wrote. And how did that come about because there seems to be an important condition and that is that it's on the record as we approached October twenty nineteen. I knew it was the ten year anniversary of this article I had written for Vanity Fair and then I just got this crazy idea which is With Dave sit down and talk to me and I knew he hadn't read the article because in this weird coincidence he and I ended up working together in twenty fourteen on the Kennedy Center Honors and I actually had a chance to ask him. Did you ever read that article. And he said to my face no. I don't worry about that stuff. Don't worry about that stuff it meaning inning. He didn't wear. He doesn't worry about what people write about him. Is that what it means. Already doesn't worry about how he behaved and how he treats women he claims it is the former when you sat down with David. I'm curious what was the most striking thing that he had to say. Well first of all it was pretty extraordinary that he agreed to sit down with me. If you do any reading about apologies and someone wronged you find out that as the person who has been wronged you lose status status and so the second Dave agreed will sit at a table and talk. He really did offer me the status right. We were equals at that table and I would love to see more powerful white men doing that sort of thing which is being open to that discussion so the point was not just for me to get what turned out to be an apology from Dave but also to you try to model behavior that I would like to see more. We're talking with TV writer and author Nelson cavill you mentioned in your Vanity Fair Peas. How male all writers rooms have been for people like Jay Leno and he has no regret and no apology? No it's all about the material. Just if you give me material than I will hire you. Just come up to me in a comedy club. He says you know Jay Leno went off. The air was zero female writers and that's he should be ashamed that for the rest of his life. What would you say are the things that make you optimistic about how conversations are changing not just in and around this issue but in the workplace about a show runners interest in hiring a room that looks like the country not like the country club? I do think we've made some improvement and I think it certainly helps to have people like Kenya barriers and Shonda rhimes who have been so successful and even giverny They're all doing amazing work. And I think it's Shonda who made an amazing observation. which is if you walk outside? You see people of all colors. There's US see people from all walks of life that's normalcy so we actually shouldn't call it. Diversity what we want is normalcy. You know in Nineteen nineteen ninety. I went to the EMMYS for the first time Letterman had been nominated and I was in the audience when they announced the nominees for the five best comedies comedies and it was Murphy Brown Golden Girls Designing women wonder years and cheers three and a half of those shows were created by women. Diane English one for Murphy Brown and I sat there in nineteen ninety and thought we we solve this. We proved it. You're if such a dreamer now I just want to get back to where we were in. Nineteen Ninety nells. cavill is a TV writer. She's the author of the memoir. Just the funny parts in a few hard truths about sneaking into the Hollywood boys club. Now thanks much for coming in. Thank

"Of our favorite things to do on this podcast pick the brain of people whose careers have really taken some unique turns and who tackled big jobs which brings us is to mark. Levin who is currently the vice president of Global Partnerships Business and corporate development at facebook previously serving as chief operating officer at Instagram and before that was in the Obama administration straight as chief of staff of the National Economic Council and Special Assistant to the president for economic policy. We can keep going back but we only have so much time Marnie. Thank you so much for doing this. Well thank you for having me. Those titles are mouthfuls. I started. I took some notes on paper. I've got just lines that that make sure I get those right but took an entire sheet. Almost it's great to be here in the Great State of Texas or we're glad you're here visiting from the Great Silicon Valley which will cover here a little bit but your career began in the great city the city of Washington DC at the Treasury Department. So how did you get started in policy in government actually think my career began in Cleveland Ohio. Which is where I was raised raised growing up I was always really interested in politics and policy and then my senior year of high school I got a job working for it was an internship working for the county commissioner. This woman named Mary Boyle who is a real fireball and that's it's really where I learned about. The role that government could play in people's lives and I was hooked immediately and my job there was to new research different proposals and to help work on casework and provide access to different kinds of get that people access to different kinds of social services that they needed which was great they also had me working on a solid Waste Management Plan. I got really into that as does so much so that I was nicknamed. Trash Queen Levin those a fortunate said of rhyming right exactly so that was the that was I think the kickoff to the career that sort of where I got the so-called bug for politics and policy and so oh then after college I moved to Washington. DC AND I ended up getting a job at the Treasury Department. This was before the Internet so so I didn't really fully understand or appreciate what the Treasury Department did but I knew that I wanted to have an impact on people's lives lives and I thought that you know government was the best road to be able to do that and that policy was kind of the best vehicle Kohl for doing that and so working at the Treasury Department where we could work on low cost basic banking accounts financial privacy things like that. I thought we could help help improve people's lives and was a great start in Holly. You spent a long career. Government is well I did I did yes thank you for pointing uh-huh and so did Hollywood you kind of have a similar experience to that in your desires yeah and you know I had a little bit of a similar experience. It was slightly later later for me where I really had not been exposed to politics. Policy is a kid that significantly other than what you just read in the news and and and learn in school and then when I was in college I interned in Congress and that kind of bug is what really turned me on to and got me into policy work as well yeah and you were you legislative affairs right I did I did policy work and then I ended up doing legislative affairs at the end because I had worked in Congress so once she working Congress they figure you know how to how to deal with members of Congress. At the Treasury Department. I started in the chief of staff office but then I would see people running up and down the hallway all day running back and forth back and forth back and forth and I would hear the click clack of heels on the on the marble floor and I thought what are they all doing and then I realized that it was negotiations with Congress and so I thought that's where I wanna be like that's where the action is working on working from the Treasury Department with people in Congress on different kinds of legislation and so that's eventually where I moved to yeah yeah it was fun because I had worked on Congress and worked on legislation that I then had to go into the administration and implement seeing both sides of in writing it and then implementing it was really interesting and not a lot of people I think have that experience of actually writing it and then having to go put it in action and figuring out what we did well and what you didn't do so well when you wrote a piece of legislation different skills knowledge and a different level of detail yeah yeah so then in two thousand eight after you're spending some time in the Treasury Department he joined the Obama Transition Team from the Bush administration Bamut Ministration and wrote about the the kind of exciting being difficult decision to take a position that really was going to suck away a lot of your time. How did you balance that in your life. Well I had worked in the Clinton administration in and I was in my twenties then and I knew how all consuming it was so I was in a very different place in my life. When Obama was elected I was married worried. I had a three year old child and then I had I had just had a baby and so I was really interested in serving and and I was very grateful to even be given being given the opportunity to serve and I wanted to play some small role in helping to address the great recession and the financial crisis that was going on so I had a conversation with my husband. He said we'll make it work work and I thought I was but what happened was pretty interesting for me. One morning I had to go into the White House late because I had to take my then three year old son to the doctors and we were driving home from the doctor's appointment and he and he said where are you taking me and and I said well. I'm going to drop you at school. You're okay and then I'm going to go to work and he said. Did you know that Matthew's mother drops him at school every morning and I said well. I don't know that Matthew's mother does that every morning but I try to take you when I can now there was at the White House. There's the seven thirty. AM senior senior staff meeting and then there's the eight fifteen am meeting which is the extended senior staff and that was the meeting. I was supposed to go to but that conflicted with taking my son to school unless I took them really early in the morning and so Monday morning rolls around after we'd had this conversation and he marches into our bathroom threw him and he says he says to me and my husband so who's taking me to school today looking straight at me no pressure and I said well. Daddy's GonNa take you to school school and he said do you remember our conference on Friday when I told you that. Matthew's mother takes him to school every morning and I I said I do remember. That husband looked at me and he said well what are you gonNA do. I said you know I think I'm going to need to take him to school in the morning. So it's interesting who your teachers are in life and in this case it was and what he was saying is. I need you in the morning and not in the evenings. which is what? I thought I he needed me dinner any we needed me for bedtime but he really wanted me first thing in the morning and so I march into work that day and I told one of my colleagues that he would would be attending the meeting he was thrilled and I started taking my son to school and when I think what I learned through all of that is I could make it work but but this was much more about quality over quantity of time together and that I really needed to listen to the feedback that my kids and my husband we're giving me about what they needed. Specifically and once I was dialed into that I was able to kind of make it all work I got into the White House. I would get there every morning at about nine fifteen in the morning which is late for ready late but the world's still turned into L. worked out Yup so Marnie after your timing government then went out to Silicon Valley and I'm curious how you found that transition. There are two very different worlds. They're different and and then there are also similarities so let's start with some of the differences. The obvious ones were the dress code I went from suits to hoodies and that was a real transient wearing jeans to work in that was that was definitely but I've now adjusted and I would say there was a difference in language to in in the government we would always say I'm going to write a memo advice. Good memo oh right away and it facebook. There would be something that would look like a memo but we would call it. A plan and there was in Washington. There was a lot of talk about fail failure legislation that had failed or didn't pass and in Silicon Valley. There was lots of discussion about pivoting okay right so there we're differences there were there are lots of differences in that regard and I would say the glaring difference was that in Washington there is a love of paper and big binders full of paper and in Silicon Valley. There's not a lot of paper around I personally brought my love of paper with me to use Silicon Valley and get teased mercilessly for it but I I would say that the similarities are as follows there are I feel like in government is a collection of best and brightest and it is a collection of people who are very mission focused and focused on doing good in the world and bringing about change and I think that in Silicon Valley there's a lot of that as well a collection of really smart people who are mission driven ribbon and trying to do good in the world affect people's lives and positive ways. I think the things that I brought with me from Washington war for you know being able to peer around corners and identify risks. That's a skill that one develops in Washington and also when you're trying to get something being done in a vast government is that you need to have process and you need to bring all stakeholders to the table and have conversations and be able to synthesize emphasized that to come up with the best policy recommendations in Silicon Valley things move pretty quickly and in scaling organizations what you WanNa do is apply just enough process so that you can get the best of thought from everybody but not so much process that you really slow everything down and I think I brought some of those skills from Washington continue to facebook when I started there in two thousand ten you obviously very senior woman in silicon in valley and you and your friend and colleague Sheryl Sandberg have really been a promoter of women in the C. Suite Talk to me about that issue and why you're you're passionate about it and what you encourage other women to do and how how to how to think about their roles well I think for me. It's all about connection community among women from the earliest days. I've always really enjoyed getting together with women and I just I've I draw strength from that and I've seen what happens with other women when they are connected. When I was in business school early on there there was a woman in my section we all didn't really know each other very well and she had just gotten engaged in so I suggested hey why don't we all get together and come over to my apartment and will toast Christine but at the same time you know we'll get together and talk about things and get to know each other and what was so interesting we made up at that the point I think less than twenty percent of the of the class of our group and when we when we came into the classroom the next morning there were a a lot more women who were speaking up a lot more women who were building off of each other's comments and they felt more confident as though I think that was one of the Times where I really saw or how that connection and feeling of community could be empowering for other people and then things like my book club where we actually would read the book and discuss it would also became kind of my leaning circle that Cheryl started the lean in circles and that's really about relying on one another connecting acting sharing and helping each other make important decisions in in one's

After Facebook's 15 months of "fresh hell," why is its business still so solid?

Marketplace Tech with Molly Wood

After Facebook's 15 months of "fresh hell," why is its business still so solid?

"Had fifteen months of quote, fresh hell, but two point one billion still use it or Instagram or what's apple messenger every day from American public media. This is marketplace tech demystifying the digital economy. I'm Jack Stewart infamously would. Despite the privacy scandals the federal investigations and the accusations of destroying democracy. This week Facebook reported its advertising revenue and global users are growing and this week's quality assurance we take a deep dive into why in his early years Facebook prioritized growth over everything else. Nearly every crisis Facebook now faces stems from that nNcholas Thompson editor in chief of wired says that's left management navigate a metaphor minefield. There was a lot of unexploded ordinance, but they were inevitably going to step on at some point. He's an author on the magazine's latest cover story, which goes behind the scenes at the troubled company. He says Facebook's business is actually solid for a couple of reasons. Number one, the advertising business model they came up with this one of the greatest ever, and it doesn't require lots of changes. They just built an amazing business model and the. Marginal cost of bringing in new advertisers are very low. Secondly, one of the smartest business decisions. Mark Zuckerberg ever made was to buy Instagram and people don't really understand that Instagram is owned by Facebook. Or if they distrust Facebook, they don't distrust Instagram, so Instagram continues to grow. So they make lots of money off of Corfe Facebook. They have lots of user growth on Instagram, and what's up and the businesses doing great. You would think at some point the maybe advertisers would start to push back. I mean Facebook's reputation has really taken this really huge dense that it appears house. Why do people still want to advertise with it? Well, because the advertising continues to work if at some point people had an icky feeling when they use Facebook, and therefore the ads are less effective than advertisers will leave. But at this moment Facebook allows you to very specifically target specific users in ways that you cannot on other platforms and for lots of advertisers. That's just a deal. That's too good to pass up now face. Is an -ticipant tting. It says up to a five billion dollar fine from the Federal Trade Commission. We heard that from it this week about how it's handled some of these privacy issues will they even feel that is the question. They have so much cash on hand is a big deal now so Facebook put out in their earnings call they said that they anticipate three to five billion dollar fine. I don't know whether that's because those are the numbers the FTC has been talking about with them. Or if as book is just trying to set expectations as negotiating tactic. I would not rule out the possibility that Facebook is hit with a ten billion dollar fine or a twenty billion dollar fine, regardless to your question, even if it is at the higher end whether it's five or ten or twenty it's tiny market cap is up. I believe forty billion dollars as we talk this morning. So it's not a huge hit to them. Obviously. They would rather have five billion dollars and not have five billion dollars. But they will be fine. Regardless of what this number comes out at the thing. They really worry about is antitrust if there's antitrust regulation. And it comes down hard on them. That is a serious problem and that would make the market dropped dramatically. What are the stakes for Facebook's leadership around all of these scandals? The fake news, the offensive content the privacy, you know, you detail that they've got something like the two thousand moderate has now does that mean they're actually taking this seriously as a business risk? Yes. Absolutely. Facebook is taking it very serious business risks. So there to really interesting questions in there. So number one is do they take the seriously as a business risk? Absolutely. Are they committed to trying to counter fake news and all of the manipulation on the platform? Absolutely water the stakes to their business. They're very high scandal continues to multiply there could be real consequences down the road. What are the stakes specifically to top management meeting? Mark Zuckerberg, and Sheryl Sandberg. The two people who we most associate with the company for soccer Berg, he's going to run the company as long as he wants to. He has voting control of the shares. He's appointed his friends as board members key is. In a good position whenever he wants to go and run the chance Berg initiative or just go be a intellectual thought leader or do Bill Gates type things he will go. Choose to do that. For sandberg. It's tougher. And there were moments in the last year where it seemed like she might be sacrificed or where she might be in. Big trouble sucker brook has expressed his loyalty to her. But as the scandal is multiplied, and as they started to touch her in a way, they never had before it seemed as though her position was at risk. And it is also certainly the case that the public reputation of both of them as dropped a year ago. We were talking about each of them as potential presidential candidates. Now, there's not a chance what about the morale in the white accompany in the wake of all of this. Do you get the feeling from the people you've been talking to in your reporting that employees a fairly satisfied that I'm laughing even as I say that or is there a whole lot of internal chaos at this company. There is a lot more employees disatisfaction than there was two years ago. There are lots of employees. We're talk to their who say, oh, this is great. It's cool. You know, the media hates us. But that's not my problem. I'm happy. And they're bunch of other people who say, you know, we deserve a lot of the hatred. We made a lot of mistakes we trampled on people's privacies. And you know, I regret all that. We've done I talked to a lot of people who are thinking about going to work there. And it doesn't have the halo that it did two years ago. They still pay you. Well, the fact that the stock continues to go up as great particularly for people who have options, but it is a less exciting place to work and night as one of the true risks for the company in one of the most adverse effects of the last two years for Facebook did any part in this reporting, particularly given how much time you've spent on Facebook directly. Now did anything really surprising? There was one specific story that stunned me. And I was the circumstances. That led to the departure of the two founders of Instagram, Kevin sister, Krieger and Winfred Vogelstein. And I started reporting the story we made. List of the mysteries. We wanted to solve that was at the very top. They left. It seems strange. They had left all of a sudden in September no-one knew why? And late in the reporting months into reporting, the story, we finally learned the full story, and that is that Cording to people close to them they had grown frustrated zuckerberg's increased meddling. They didn't like the idea that Instagram was going to be further merged with what's app and with Facebook. And there was real tension. Over Instagram's growth, and there's a sense among some people at Facebook that Instagram's growth was coming at the expense of core Facebook, and that led to all kinds of tensions, and then a big fight at the end of July and a moment where Mark Zuckerberg, according to people you observing all of this Mark Zuckerberg asked one of his deputies to drop a list of all the ways that Facebook supported Instagram the way it drove users towards Instagram. And then he gave the list to Kevin system and said, we're getting rid of all these. And according to people familiar with the story system reacted quite badly to that. And then went on paternity leave came back and said, I'm done here. And so the biggest surprise to us was that the departure of system in Krieger which had come out before was much tensor much tenser than I had believed when I began reporting the story

Make sure you're working with a wealth manager who has grown with you work with a CF HR holder. Learn more at the right question dot org. Facebook has recruited a surveillance hawk to be its next top lawyer, she helped craft the Patriot Act that was the controversial law that ushered in a new era of government surveillance of citizens privacy advocates who follow Facebook closely are baffled by this. But as NPR's earthy Shahani reports the new hire could help the company improve relations with another set of critics. There's no need to point out. The Jennifer Newstead went to Harvard undergrad yellow right after of course, she did. In addition to her pristine pedigree. She is a lean woman descended from three generations of leaning in. Her grandmother was a doctor. My mother has spent her medical career pioneering new technologies to diagnose cancer in women. That was new in late twenty seventeen before the Senate, President Trump nominated her to be top lawyer for the State Department, the first woman in that position very little about her legal philosophy came out the confirmation hearing, though, she did make clear she is a staunch supporter of executive power. Asked if it would be okay in theory for the president to attack North Korea. Even if they didn't attack us, and even if congress did not authorize use of military force Newstead said in essence. Yes. Preemptive strikes are okay, it, it's my view that the law generally provides the president may act to defend the United States New studies now changing bosses leaving Trump for Mark Zuckerberg. She leaves the State Department with a wealth of contacts around the world that should prove useful for Facebook. Who's users are mostly outside? The US new staff is also uniquely qualified to help Facebook with privacy. Specifically pushing the limits of law to dismantle privacy. You could say she's really one of the legal architects of our modern digital master Valence society. Timothy Edgar came to know Newstead years ago after the terrorist attacks of September eleventh two thousand one he was an advocate at the American Civil Liberties union, she was at the Justice department Jenner. For Newstead was, you know, one of the smartest lawyers that you could imagine in a very elite group her group was the nerve center of America's post nine eleven legal architect ING, they laid the groundwork for the government to collect mass data telephone records internet, meta data and to search without consent. In terrorism cases were now in a new era where surveillance is conducted by companies Facebook is under immense scrutiny. Just yesterday. Senator Ron Wyden sent a letter urging regulators to hold CEO Zuckerberg individually accountable or his flagrant repeated violations of Americans privacy will continue. Tim Wu figured Facebook would hire someone who was the opposite of new stud little shock to taken aback. Lou a law professor at Columbia University wants met the incoming Facebook lawyer at a party, they'd both clerked for supreme court Justice, Steven Brier. And he was the host will is a privacy advocate. He says. Facebook needs to clean up its reputation proved a users the company wants to protect them by bringing in a Patriot Act architect to connect the dots and say, well, she did surveillance for for for the federal government. Now, she's taking over surveillance Facebook that said he does have an educated guess about why the higher make sense to deal with governmental pressure. Yes. Governments criticized Facebook for privacy violations. But they also knock on Facebook store when they want user data to investigate. For example, terrorists are activists. Government requests have grown steadily each year. Woo worries that Jennifer Newstead will turn users into bargaining chips to help Facebook curry political favor. I can't say I look forward to Facebook cooperating with government. That's one of the things I've always been concerned with Facebook's announcement chief operating officer Sheryl Sandberg praised the new hire for her global perspective and made no mention.

"sheryl sandberg" Discussed on On Point with Tom Ashbrook | Podcasts

"To take a break for a child and then make your decisions. Okay. That's Sheryl Sandberg in two thousand ten Catherine. I'm going to come back to you in a second. But but Anna, I'm really taking by Sheryl Sandberg saying, you know, keep your foot on the gas pedal. And I'm hearing what you're, but I'm wondering for women women such as you and the and the the Latinos have joined who joined leaning Latina, aren't you? Because you said you didn't like it wasn't a choice like you had to learn how to do it all. So what was she saying that wasn't already a reality in your life? It was it was a sense of empowerment that. I felt and for you know, years when I started my career, I didn't know which way to turn to get help or support. And to be quite Frank. I was lost in the business world. I didn't have parents who were executives or parents who even told me. I should go to college. So when I got into the work environment. I didn't know which way to turn. I didn't have a network. I didn't really have sort of guiding principle so to speak, and I figured it out. I had to know as a single mother ahead to figure out how do I make progress in the workforce? And then when I got oriented to lean in kind of what Katherine said earlier, I thought okay here are the things that I need to do. I need to lean in when I'm at the table at work. There are things that I know I need to do to be successful. And as I mentioned earlier, I wish I would have had a network likely in Latina's because it is not just about self success Leinen Latinas and the Leinen organization is about the success of everybody right in the network. Okay. So we'll talk about more more about that in a second. But shouldn't just want to just remind listeners here that the Anna's in Stanford. California Catherine's in Durham, North Carolina. I'm here in Boston. We can't see each other. But I also don't want to just be like, the the constant intermediary between between you, and and Catherine Anna guys would so just feel free Kathryn and just jump in talk to each other. Let's like Abbas certainly here. Okay. Catherine jumping what what do you think? What do what do you think about what is saying? So I totally the idea of community. I think for women as a navigate their careers are really important. And I think we found that in my circle. And I think that is a definite benefit of lean in circles. And I think that I absolutely believe there's more strength to sort of more strength comes from, you know, working together and supporting each other. I think that overall the message of the book that I feel really I mean, what we're I feel like Lena I came up against sort of the brick wall of lean. Was when I became a mother. So I started reading I was really believed in Sheryl Sandberg's advice and not at clip you played about the don't leave till you leave. I I really remember thinking about that. When I was offered a better paying more prestigious more responsibility job and decided to go for it. And that was sort of my Leinen moment. Even though I knew that I would want it to become a mother soon. So I part of Charleston. That's exactly what you should adapt. I took I took her advice. I remember really thinking about what like what Sheryl Sandberg's advice would be. And so I took the job. And there were some great things about that opportunity. But it was a much more traditional work environment. I was the only parent on the team, and I went on to have my son in July twenty fifteen he was born with some serious health problems. He's doing great now. But I sort of but at the time, you know, when I came back from attorney leave I felt very lost about sort of what my professional reality was going to be. And I went onto lose that job. And really made me question so much about my identity and myself worth because I had bought into this idea that you know, if I put myself out there, and I keep charging ahead. And I, you know, it's okay to be the only parent on your team because you're going to be a trailblazer. And that's going to be great. And that was not my experience. And so that really led me I really felt like a failure..

She quickly apologized for her language saying, quote, I forgot where I was for a moment. Five years after Sheryl Sandberg's. Book lean in was published. Many women are finding themselves agreeing with the former first lady statement and in light of that.

But I think what was maybe different about me that when the book first came out, I was really all in on Lena. And I Sheryl Sandberg's message really seriously, and even created my own Leinen, circle, and my views over the last five years have really changed. You wrote that you were a superfan. Twenty nine year old hard charging, New York, social media strategist and editor. So how hard did you lean in? Well, you know, I took a message. So seriously, I created my own group and rained into that. And we met for a year and sort of follow the lesson plans, and I was happy with what I had accomplished in my career. But I knew that I had a lot of ambition. And I thought that this was going to be a blueprint for success for me as I sort of thought about how to continue to grow as a professional. And you know, there are some messages of the book that I think still resonate for example. A number of the women in our group asked for and got raided sort of following Sheryl Sandberg they've vice. So I do think that there are some important lessons about negotiating and speaking up for yourself that that still resonate. But I I definitely took her her lessons. Very seriously. Okay. Also went on let our listeners those if you'd like to join this conversation. Our number is two one two four three three nine six nine two two one two four three three WNYC. Did you lean in how did it work out for you? What do you think? Do you think? It doesn't apply anymore. Can you? Should let me bring you in. What were you? Impressions of the book lean in Sheryl Sandberg's overall advice when it came out. I you know, I I didn't get too far into the book. No, I understood why was appealing to a lot of people. And you know, I think it's because a lot of people are really either especially women to feel like they have a lot more control in the workplace, and and that gave them the self help book felt like it was it was a towering and allow people to really think about what can I do to make a difference in my own life in America is at it through America. Accuracy were looking for ways to kind of believe that if we work hard or we can give ahead. So I understood that that's kind of a place that had a it started. It started a lot of important conversations about why women were falling behind still how women could get ahead in. So I do want to say there's a place for it. But I also didn't feel that that motivated to read it because, you know, all in all from what I could tell and, you know, the first chapter to read a book. But it was mostly kind of generic advice about believing in oneself fan and getting ahead. So Katherine you mentioned that you really leaned into this. You had to lean in circle at what point did you realize, Catherine? I'm sorry at what point did you realize? This wasn't going to work out the way you thought it might. I became a mother. So I came to some different crossroads in my career. I got offered a really exciting new professional opportunity that was going to have more money and more responsibility. And this like really seemed like my and moment, and so I went for the job, and I left behind a family friendly company where there was a lot of working parents to be the only working parent on my team in a very traditional office. And I say so lot of struggles I had a son that was born with health issues, and thankfully, very healthy now. But you know, I wasn't really ready to go back to work when my very short maternity leave was up, and I really struggled with sort of what my professional, identity wise. I went on to that job. And I I came to myself at the time it really felt like I was a failure. And everybody had this working mom thing figured out. Except for me, and I've sort of now turn my attention to this as a journalist. I realized nobody has it figured out. And it's not just the systemic lack of support that working mothers yet. But also a lot of very very open discrimination that mother in the workplace that I've been researching and reporting on for the last couple of years, I think you bring up an interesting point, I want to bring condition this that one of the criticisms of the book was that she was in such rarefied air in her position that she wouldn't necessarily experience some of the discrimination and difficulties that, Catherine describe what do you think about that idea of Sheryl Sandberg sort of speaking to them in a way to a very small group of people. Yeah. No. I mean, I I really love that Catherine talked about motherhood, and in even that sheriff Hamburg starts with about there because you know, in her book is a kind of trickled down feminism, text, which is like more women after tap-in policies will change and things will get better. And this idea that fear is holding them back in when you talk about motherhood, you know, that that's very concrete. You're apex. Not just like fear or lack of Embiid shareholding went back that actually thinking about kind of how we care in our nation around about what it means to raise children what it means to be in the workforce. What it means structurally to help tend to families, which are you know, how any keeps growing and how we stay strong. So so I think it's really important for us to think, you know, thanks through that into consider the wave, you know, embraces capitalist notion feminism as about corporates corporations and benevolent corporation that supposedly will help everyone. And I think ironically, that means that for standard in when you're looking at all the controversy around for great now, that's basically admired in we see the lie of a benevolent corporation, this idea of a business. That was good. Is there to be good for everyone? And you see that really allowed as corporations are any for themselves. And that's how women get treated when they have children. And when they're seen as kind of not being as prevalent in the workplaces some corporations wants to be so, you know, this is structural issues ways on which standard really kind of avoid talking about structural issue. For women in the workplace is at the crux of the criticism around lean. And and the thing that we have to keep coming back to. Let's take a call. Holly is on line one calling us calling us. Hi, holly. What's your story? Thanks for taking my call. Connected to what you're talking about. I worked in the in the nonprofit sector, and I'm also a single mother. And so when I read the book, I say, this is not applicable to me at all because I don't have the same type of resources to have a husband or partner who's going to be able to take on the childcare. When I when I need it. And in the nonprofit really over represented by women in general, so I really was a very specific look on certain sectors in the workforce and just really wasn't applicable. So a lot of one in our country. Holly. Thank you so much for weighing in our numbers to unto four three three nine six nine to two one two four three three WNYC. Were you someone who bought leaned in and read every page we somebody who bought into the idea? Do you still buy into the idea or maybe you have changed your minds? We're having a conversation about this with journalists, Catherine Goldstein and professor cut. You're y you know, it's sort of there is an interesting part the way that book opens remind myself is when she went believe, she's working at Google and she was profoundly pregnant and she had to park very far away. And she describes herself waddling in to the founders of Google and demanding maternity parking. And they sort of shrug and say, okay. And her point. I think was you. Sometimes you have to ask for things you want. And sometimes some of these barriers aren't necessarily sort of have been eleven Lee malevolently, concocted, and some boardroom each just that there twenty four year old guys who've never had a pregnant woman working with them. What do you think about that aspect of it, Catherine this idea that sometimes it's just ignorance? It's definitely just sometimes just ignorance, and I think having people in leadership positions consider the needs of people at all stages of life with all kinds of caretaking responsibilities. Not just the idea that mothers need special treatment. But that you should be thinking about all kinds of needs for employees. I think that's important. But I mean, my feeling is that the problems facing working mothers goes so beyond getting pregnancy parking. And I think like I think that what it what green and doesn't address at all is this idea that it's not just like, oh, there should be some perks in in a few little benefits that can really help mothers. You know, if you have a baby between twenty five and thirty five which are your prime childbearing years. You're earning never recover, you know, for every child a woman every child a woman has her earnings drop and for men, they actually get a six. Percents bonus in their raise it. That's what patriarchy looks like basically, the idea that yes, it's important to have women at the top, and this sort of.

What's happening to women in Corporate America?

"My first cast. Has. Some real thoughts about what's been happening with women. In corporate America. Where we are with women in the tech industry, and she has been writing about this and talking about it for a while her book is called billions lost the American tech crisis and the road map to change in Hillary GAM, welcome. It's so nice to have you with us today. How are you? Nice to be on the show again. Hillary can I ask you to speak out because you're so softly spoken. I'm having a hard out here. Sure. Sorry. I'll talk louder. I forgot radio you need to be really loud. Yes. It's on the show again. Thank you. Thank you for having me. So Hillary I wanna go back to what happened. With Google and the walkout. Yeah. Very exciting story with all of the locations globally where women and fellow co workers walked out in protest of harassment that Google female workers were receiving. What did that walkout? You. Well, I think they're really positive thing was that brought to the forefront that women working in tech forego. Google have been harassed are being harassed many different levels. And I think that it raised awareness that it's happening, and it's not just happening to one or two people. It's happening across the board and multiple locations at various different levels within the organization. So that statement and the the CEO of Google was all in favor of it. Yes, I believe after the walkout. He's sent out an apology apologizing for the company's inability to take seriously that complaints that they had received from their workers. So I think that he promised in his comments that Google as a tech company would be more diligent and taking seriously any issues that were raised regarding harassment at the company specifically in relation to female workers. So Hillary we saw that the country elected one hundred I think it's over one hundred women were elected. Into office in the past twenty four hours. Yes. Do you see this movement in this momentum finally taking hold and please speak up a little bit? I'm sorry your voices. So it's so soft. That's so funny. Okay. I'm speaking so loudly. I guess I okay. I I'm not sure what happened because we connected earlier. Right. And I think that the gentleman that he could hear me. So I don't know what happened to me. It's okay. It's okay. Not to worry. All right. Sorry about that. I think that when you see with politics, which is really nice is that there is a threshold for people to get into politics that where they're winning votes. And so you see women over time have made. Improvements and their participation and in politics, and they're getting more critical mass and are being more of a voice within politics in the US when it comes to technology women in technology have been on the decline since the turn of the century. So we've seen women leave tech and they've been on a steady decline since the year two thousand and so where we see more and more women leaving Tak not staying intact or being pushed out of tack. We don't have that critical mass believe Sheryl Sandberg's organization leaning came out with their report about three weeks ago, which indicated that women continue not to make inroads to be on boards of US corporations or in positions of responsibility and high tech are across US corporations. And basically, you need critical mass you you can't have women rising to leadership positions. Unless you have women actually working in any position where we see women on the decline in tech. We see the biggest issues in terms of women in leadership positions in tech.

"Store. Apple shares have been falling steadily for the past few weeks. And I'm just wondering, I mean, do you view? This sort of existential threat to the business model to be similar at other big tech companies just by virtue of their size. And in fact, that regulators are kind of getting more concerned about that. I don't know if I necessarily wanna go out looking at Facebooks problem. Facebook's problems the problem with social media and the abuse of social media, and how a regulator is going to exercise appropriate and proper oversight in terms of social media companies as we look to other technology companies whether it's an apple whether it's Google whether it's microphone Microsoft, whether it's a net flicks. Where an Amazon, you know, certainly, we have to look at companies that have grown to a fairly substantial size wield substantial economic influence, and as a result, you know, are they introducing anticompetitive behaviors there has been the case being made quietly but steadily over the past six to twelve months that the next administration onto becoming back in and looking at trust busting. We ought to be going back and looking at what? Happened in earlier economic cycles. Back nearly twentieth century, you know, teddy Roosevelt came in basically as a trust BUSTER have these companies gotten to be too large. And it's interesting here with this news with respect to apples that this is something that's actually rising to review by the supreme court. David garrity. The one name we have yet to mention is Sheryl Sandberg, Sheryl Sandberg is responsible. I believe for the direct scrutiny of advertising as well as legal and policy issues at Facebook who gets thrown under the bus if anyone because of the. Perilous situation that the company faces right now. Well, one certainly has to argue that Sandberg is going to be sort of squarely in the crosshairs. And but I'll give Sandberg credit is that when it has come time for this company's management to appear before various government bodies regulatory bodies to testify. It has generally been Sandberg who's been the standup person out of management to be held accountable. Zuckerberg has tried to stay in the shadows has tried to Dutch dodge duck, Bob, we've, but it's been Sandberg who really has been the standup person here. And unfortunately, given the way things are set up in terms of the governance, we discussed earlier, it's most likely going to be Sandberg who takes the first fall, David Garrity. It's always a pleasure to have you. Thank you so much for coming. And David Garrity is chief market strategist at Laidlaw and company in New York..

"Right. So this tweet today from Lucala. He's a journalist at Bloomberg quoting the CEO of SpaceX Gwen shot. Well, is her name? She is very much the Sheryl Sandberg of of SpaceX, right? She's running basically running it the way Sandberg runs a company for soccer. Here's what she said musk is. And this is a quote as lucid and capable as he has ever been. So I would just submit as Lukava points out in this tweet that is not something you ever want to have to say about you're seeing that's no, I really liked the the first comment on that. The first comment to the tweet which says, there are some statements quotes from an article on seeking alpha saying. There are some statements that are always lies because they involve topics that never tend to arise. When the statements are true. If you have to say that is like the greatest thing like you would never say that if you were not either Heko worried about that or trying to make the opposite seem the case. Yeah, I, I mean, so I just, you know, I'm a little hung up on him a little worried about him, but but also it's tough to look away. It is tough way and yet also tough to look like so many things I spent almost all of yesterday morning on. Apologies to my bosses reading this New Yorker. Thinks you're not supposed to sail. Work. I tweeted about it. There was like Alice's, the what? Not. I was working reading this fifteen thousand word New Yorker article about Mark Zuckerberg. Mark Zuckerberg fix Facebook before it breaks democracy, and it's not as though you're gonna learn something brand new from this article, but it's sort of like sometimes things are laid out in a way that erases reasonable doubt. The reasonable doubt that Mark Zuckerberg will ever see the path that he has on as in any way erroneous or problematic. Like at a racist, any doubt that he doesn't know exactly what he's doing and he's not gonna keep on doing it. He believes that he is right. He hit, you know, his idol is a Gusta Caesar who he credits with bringing about two hundred years of peace, and that's such a great thing. Even though gusts Caesar, you know, like killed is killed his critics and. Widely believed to have assassinated. His own Neff grandson eliminating his political opponents banished as daughter. You know, like when you look at the man's idols, it's ends. It's the means justified. The ends, and this is a guy who I think really believes in in his path and believes that the experiences that he's had now so far running Facebook have ultimately justified all of his decisions which removes any reasonable doubt that he's gonna change anything about it. Yep. And then when you combine that with the fat with the article, noting that you know, Facebook is now bigger than Christianity. And if it were a country, it would be the largest country on earth. It's a hell of a read. All right. Okay. Okay. I commend you to that one and then on the Nike tip? Yes, Rolling Stone just had Abreu an absolutely brutal and great piece about the interviewed, a young black man who works in the Nike call center about the types of calls that he got after Nike announced his deal with Colin Kaepernick. Yeah, bad and how people were crying at work because we were just calling in with these absolutely terrible. Obviously, as you might imagine, terrible, racist comments. And there's a part in the piece that was just like the boast I it was a little as a little dark place, but they asked this poor guy how the buses have been handling situation, he says, yeah, no, they noticed that morale is low. It was a problem. And so as a reward for doing a good job, they thanked us and they brought in food and they bought Papa. John's pizza a dog. Gnome kidding deduct. But I know the dog that's cruzi Papa. John's in case you had forgotten. Obviously, Papa. John's CEO was. Down recently after he used the n word on a call about pizza. So that was a little like dark messed up, messed up. Here shall we own. But maybe our listeners can save Molly Woody Joan out here turn go. Hi.

"Right so that's another way to look at kind of the culture and hiring wanna i'm going to shift topics to communications within the company classically when you're at an early stage the you're on the same room communications easy almost like all hands is we just happen all be in the same room at the same time and that's the way work did you begin new to to to build an part of that is that begins the shift to everyone has a complete dialogue to be on the same page and you have to start changing the pattern of which information is being both expected in communicated and i actually found us sheryl sandberg anecdote to be particularly like it's not exactly the communications pattern but it's the kind of communications pattern that shows you like when she started at google she celebrated everyone's birthday like on the day and so everyone had this really special place because we celebrate your birthday as well then you move to a 500person organization and you're having birthday celebrations in basically every day and that begins to get too much and so and so then they moved to howling birthday celebrations per month everyone who's who's who's birthday was in april this is the birthday celebration the whole thing and kinda doing that but then the people at the first part thought this used to be special and use the personal it used to be kinda closely connected and now it's not a special anymore and so that's the kind of thing when you're planning for diners than the same thing is true in terms of corporate communications because how you as leaders in the organization speak the folks in long going to be able to talk to everyone no longer is everyone going to be able to ask you questions and you need to start figuring out and also by the way there's now a whole bunch of impression certain key risks zaki decisions are not everyone's gonna know.
