It was a rare case of high-level employees publicly taking their CEO to task, with at least three of the dozen critical posts seen by Reuters coming from people who identified themselves as senior managers.
Ryan Freitas, who leads Facebook's News Feed design team, said in a tweet: "Mark is wrong, and I will endeavor in the loudest possible way to change his mind". "I focused on organising 50+ like-minded folks into something that looks like internal change".
"I work at Facebook and I am not proud of how we're showing up", tweeted Jason Toff, director of product management.
In an interview with Bloomberg News immediately after the call, Robinson said that "the problem with my ongoing conversations with Mark, is that I feel like I spent a lot of time, and my colleagues spent a lot of time, explaining to him why these things are a problem, and I think he just very much lacks the ability to understand it".
"We hear you, we see you and we are with you", the company said on social media. "Don't turn your back on racism", the company said in a video that has over six millions views and was shared by celebrities and rival Adidas AG.
Since then, however, more Facebook employees have come forward to complain. Many employees also took their frustration to Twitter where they openly disagreed with Zuckerberg's no take-down policy. "As we face additional hard decisions around content ahead, we'll continue seeking their honest feedback", a spokesperson said. The company didn't take the tweets down, however, saying it was "in the public's interest" for the president's posts to remain accessible.
Twitter had placed a warning over the content, which it said "glorified violence", but Facebook said it did not violate its company policy. Employees at the social media giant have been less outspoken than their counterparts at other tech companies such as Google and Twitter. I categorically disagree with any policy that does otherwise.
On Sunday, Zuckerberg revealed that Facebook is donating $10 million to groups working to fight racial injustice. Twitter opted to append a label to his tweets, directing users to news stories that fact checked Trump's claims. I've got outreach from some of them. Trump responded by lashing out, accusing Twitter of interfering with the election and promising retribution.
President Donald Trump walks across the South Lawn of the White House in Washington. For the first time ever, Twitter added a warning to two of the president's tweets saying he violated the platform's rules of glorifying violence.
In a post last week, the U.S. president warned protesters that he would be willing to send in the USA military to quell demonstrations if there was "any difficulty". He felt the statement warned protestors that police would shoot them, as opposed to Trump encouraging police to shoot at protestors.
The lawsuit says the order "seeks to curtail and chill the constitutionally protected speech of all online platforms and individuals- by demonstrating the willingness to use government authority to retaliate against those who criticize the government".
Facebook Inc. Chief Executive Officer Mark Zuckerberg hosted a almost hour-long video call with USA civil rights leaders to discuss ongoing issues around his company's policies as they relate to race, elections and other topics.
