(Facebook)In a manifesto released in February, Mark Zuckerberg said Facebook hoped to eventually use artificial intelligence to vet content for things like terrorist propaganda.
It was his moment to publicly address the horrifying murder video posted on Facebook Sunday, and he went with a cursory mention.
Robert Goodwin’s murder was broadcast Sunday in a first-person Facebook video recorded by killer Steve Stephens.
LUPICA: Steve Stephens, star of his own sick show, dies famous”We have a lot more to do here,” Mark Zuckerberg said about developing new technologies to keep users connected and “safe.”
There was no explanation for why it took Facebook more than two hours to remove the grisly video Sunday after Steve Stephens posted it at 2:11 p.m. eastern.
as declared in Mark Zuckerberg has sold more than $1 billion worth of Facebook stock in the past year to help fund his new philanthropic investment vehicle, the Chan Zuckerberg Initiative.
According to documents, Zuckerberg’s pre-set trading plan means he will “sell or gift no more than $1 billion of Facebook stock each year through 2018.” Even though he has sold more than $1 billion worth of stock in the past calendar year, it was spread out over 2016 and 2017.
According to the filing, Zuckerberg had about 9.6 million fewer shares at the end of March than he did one year ago.
All of this selling has been to fund the Chan Zuckerberg Initiative, a philanthropic investment vehicle Zuckerberg and his wife Priscilla Chan announced in late 2015 after the birth of their daughter.
Even with his stock sales, Zuckerberg still controls 59.7 percent of Facebook’s voting power, according to Friday’s filing.

Facebook is for all: Mark Zuckerberg takes a jab at Snapchat
(Reuters)In an apparent reaction to Snapchat CEO Evan Spiegel’s purported disinterest in expanding business to “poor countries” like India, Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg said Facebook is for everyone and not just for “the high end”.
Snapchat’s parent company Snap Inc later denied the allegation, saying no such remark was made by CEO Spiegel.
Some users wrote, “Poor India & Spain need better than Snapchat”, “Good bye, My Snapchat Account and Snap Inc. You’ll be product of gone by era and derision”, and “Poor Evan Spiegel”.
Snapchat has more than four million users in India.
Denying the claims of Snapchat being termed as a “rich people’s app”, the attorneys termed Pompliano a “disgruntled employee fired for poor performance”.
