WASHINGTON - Embattled Facebook chief executive Mark Zuckerberg said Tuesday (Nov 20) he has no plans to resign, sounding defiant after a rough year for the social platform.
"That's not the plan," Mr Zuckerberg told CNN Business when asked if he would consider stepping down as chairman.
He also defended Facebook chief operating officer Sheryl Sandberg, who has drawn criticism over her handling of the social media giant's recent crises.
"Sheryl is a really important part of this company and is leading a lot of the efforts for a lot of the biggest issues we have," said Mr Zuckerberg.
"She's been an important partner to me for 10 years. I'm really proud of the work we've done together and I hope that we work together for decades more to come."
