Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg sat down with Recode's Kara Swisher for an in-depth and wide-ranging interview, including about Cambridge Analytica, misinformation, regulation of social media, the role Russia played on Facebook during the 2016 presidential election, and user privacy. Zuckerberg also discussed the EU General Data Protection Regulation. "During the GDPR flows, and rolling that out, one of the specific things that we needed to do was get specific opt-in permission from people to use information from the websites that they used and apps in order to help target ads," he said. "And the vast, vast majority of people chose explicitly to opt into that, which goes in line with everything that I've seen on the research from what people want, which is that when faced with the decision of do you want more relevant ads or less relevant ads ... people want better ads."
