Update: 2019 file uploads and legacy platform

We have two important updates.

First, we’re happy to share that a few hundred more records have been uploaded including most 2019 content. We now have nearly 1,000 transcript records and nearly 250 video files.

Second, while we recently announced a migration to a new platform, we have been experiencing some stability issues and also remain unhappy with the search functionality. To ensure users have the best experience accessing content, we are reverting to the legacy archive platform hosted at UW-Milwaukee. All records have been updated on that site and it will be the primary archive moving forward.

User accounts should be active on that platform. Please contact us with any issues obtaining access. Sorry for any inconveninece.

Major Update: Over 600 new records & a new platform!

Update: We have reverted to the legacy platform due to stability issues. Details here.

We are excited to finally launch our upgraded archive with over 600 new records added!

The Zuckerberg Files now has over 900 transcripts in the archive, including Zuckerberg’s own Facebook posts & videos, media interviews, event presentations, and earnings calls from through October 2018. This major update includes important content related to Zuckerberg’s response to the 2016 political advertising controversy, the Cambridge Analytica scandal, and his congressional testimonies.

We’ve also launched an entirely new platform. The Zuckerberg Files will no longer be split into two collections managed remotely; transcripts and video files are now located together in a single record. Users of the old platform will need to create a new account on the updated website here.

We are continuing to tweak the user interface and search functions, and welcome any feedback.
