The Zuckerberg Files is an archive of all public utterances of Facebook’s founder and CEO, Mark Zuckerberg. It includes nearly 1000 transcripts and bibliographic data of all publicly-available content from 2004-2019 representing the voice and words of Zuckerberg, including blog posts, letters to shareholders, media interviews, public appearances and product presentations, and quotes in other sources. The archive also includes 250 videos of Zuckerberg’s public appearances.

The Zuckerberg Files is hosted on the University of Wisconsin Milwaukee’s Digital Commons, and consists of two digital collections. The “Transcripts” collection include full-text transcriptions of all the content in the digital archive of Zuckerberg’s public statements. The “Videos” collection represents a subset of the larger collection with archived copies of available video files documenting Zuckerberg’s appearances. The full bibliographic and metadata for The Zuckerberg Files are available to the public here, including valid URLs to the original source material. Access to the full-text transcripts and archived video files has been password-protected in adherence to the “Code of Best Practices in Fair Use for Scholarly Research in Communication“, which states:
Communication scholars often make private copies of individual copyrighted works that are the objects of scholarly inquiry to enable or facilitate their research, and they sometimes maintain organized research collections of copyrighted material for an indefinite period as their research interests evolve. In this, they are doing what scholars across disciplines do: make private archival collections of primary data to refer back to as their research interests develop. …Scholars who wish to open their collections of archived material to others should adopt policies appropriate to the medium, aimed at limiting access to scholars doing research in the relevant area and establishing appropriate limitations on the purposes to which the materials will be put.

This isn’t the first time Mark Zuckerberg’s content has mysteriously gone missing from Facebook. @JoshConstine reported in 2018 that the CEO’s sent messages were being deleted from people’s inboxes without their knowledge or consent.
Numerous public posts made by Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg (including everything from 2006 to 2007) have gone missing, obscuring details about core moments in Facebook’s history. The company blames “technical errors” — but won’t restore the posts.
Facebook’s data operation is under criminal investigation. Multiple subpoenas issued: https://www.nytimes.com/2019/03/13/technology/facebook-data-deals-investigation.html
Facebook employs thousands of the most talented engineers and spent more than $10 billion on R&D last year. But the work needed to recover Mark Zuckerberg’s mistakenly deleted old posts would be too “extensive and not guaranteed to be successful.”
Disappearances make it far more difficult to hold the company, and Zuckerberg himself, accountable to past statements — particularly during a period of intense scrutiny of the company in the wake of a string of scandals.
ALSO: Facebook quietly made changes to its archive of announcements & blogs, breaking old links and making it impossible to navigate unless you knew what you were searching for. (After I reached out today to ask about it, Facebook added a navigation tool.)
One of Zuckerberg’s vanished posts was his announcement of the Instagram acquisition — and his promise that Facebook would keep the app independent. Years later, he has walked back this commitment and its cofounders have quit. (Screenshot via TechCrunch article from the time.)
Facebook executive Andrew Bosworth is breaking Facebook’s rules on using your real name. Bosworth lists his name on his personal profile only as “Boz,” his nickname — something ordinary users can’t do. Facebook has been repeatedly criticised over its real name policy, which critics say can unfairly penalize LGBTQ users and others. But the double-standard for Bosworth suggests the company is less concerned with enforcing the rules for its own leadership team. One of Facebook’s most high-profile executives has been flouting the social network’s rules on using your own name on your profile for eight years.
Selenium script in Python that works pretty well (although it took 3 days to complete for about 12 years of FB posts to be deleted)
