We have added 30 new records to The Zuckerberg Files archive, retrieved from Mark Zuckerberg’s public Facebook posts.
The majority of these new additions are individual Facebook posts by Zuckerberg, noting substantive communication related to his position as Facebook’s founder and CEO. For example, we have archived his post about the 2014 acquisition of Oculus VR, and his comments in reaction to the PRISM Internet surveillance revelations. Similar substantive posts are individually archived.
In the event that Zuckerberg posted more personal and non-professional content on Facebook — but still publicly viewable — we have aggregated those miscellaneous posts into a single archive record for each year: 2010, 2011, 2012.
Three new items have been added to The Zuckerberg Files archive:
- Interview with James Breyer at Stanford University, Oct. 26, 2005 (transcript) (video)

By all accounts, our launch has been a great success.
