Sandberg was staunch in her support of Facebook’s efforts to prevent foreign influence. Sandberg’s comments come as the social media giant is facing additional heat from lawmakers regarding the collection of consumer data.

“Let me be clear: we are more determined than our opponents and we will keep fighting,” said Sandberg. “When bad actors try to use our site, we will block them, when content violates our policies, we will take it down, and when our opponents use new techniques, we will share them so we can strengthen our collective efforts. Everyone here knows this is an arms race and that means we need to be ever more vigilant.”

Lawmakers inquired about the social media platform’s inability to prevent influence campaigns originating from Russia.

“We were too slow to spot this and too slow to act,” said Sandberg. “That’s on us. This interference was completely unacceptable. It violated the values of our company and of the country we love.”
