1. Highlights and audio from Zuckerberg's emotional Q&A on scandals

The Facebook CEO began the conference call by admitting that the company had failed to protect users' privacy: "We didn't focus enough on preventing abuse and thinking through how people could use these tools to do harm as well . . . We didn't take a broad enough view of what our responsibility is and that was a huge mistake. That was my mistake."

The discussion covered a bunch of other topics, including the impact of fake news on the U.S. presidential election, the potential reach of Cambridge Analytica's data and why Zuckerberg thinks he's still the best person to run Facebook.
