Facebook knows it has hard work to do, says COO Sheryl Sandberg.

Facebook is doing the hard work necessary to protect elections and your privacy. That’s the message from Sheryl Sandberg in interviews with CBS This Morning and CNBC on Friday.

Sandberg, the social network’s chief operating officer, told CBS This Morning that earning back people’s trust will be hard, but that she and CEO Mark Zuckerberg will do «whatever it takes» to keep people safe on Facebook. (Editor’s note: CNET is owned by CBS.)

Sandberg also responded to a recent op-ed from Facebook co-founder Chris Hughes, who said Zuckerberg had too much power and that the company should be broken up.

«You could break us up, you could break other tech companies up, but you actually don’t address the underlying issues people are concerned about,» Sandberg told CNBC.

Sandberg said that users are concerned about privacy, but added that every one of Facebook’s engineering and product teams now have systems in place focused on protecting people’s privacy, according to CNBC.

When it comes to elections, Sandberg said Facebook is ready for 2020.

«We never foresaw Russian interference in the 2016 election … and that’s on us,» she told CBS This Morning. «Going into the 2020 election, we have war rooms in place. We have a working relationship with the FBI and Homeland Security … and we’re all working together.»
