Senator Harris tries to get answers from Facebook's Sheryl Sandberg
So are you saying that, then, the revenue generated was .004% of your annual revenue?
Because, of course, that would not be immaterial.
So, again, the ads are not attached to any piece of content, so it's a difficult [CROSSTALK]
So what metric then?
If you can just help me with that.
What metric are you using?
To calculate the revenue that was generated associated with those ads, and what is the dollar amount that is associated then with that metric?
So the reason we can't answer the question to your satisfaction is that ads are not organic content.
Ads don't run with inorganic content on our service, so there is actually no way.
To firmly ascertain how much ads are attached to how much organic content.
It's not how it works.
In trying to answer what percentage of the organic.
But what percentage of the content on Facebook is inorganic?
I don't have that specific answer, but we can come back to you with that.
Would you say that it's the majority or.
That insignificant amount?
You must know.
If you ask whether inauthentic accounts on Facebook, we believe that at any point time it's 3 to 4% of accounts, but that's not the same answer.
Is in organic content because somebody comes generate more content than others.
Iagree, so what percentage of your content is inorganic?
Again, we don't know, I can follow up with the answer to that.
Okay, please, that'd be great
