The couple met while queuing for the bathroom at a college party while attending Harvard, before Mark stopped to pursue the Facebook adventure.

A few dates came in quickly, and while Priscilla liked Mark, she was shocked at his lack of interest in rules and regulations.

“I’m not a rule-breaker…I literally clawed my way to Harvard,” she said, before adding, “To the straightforward Priscilla, he was a bit of a rebel.”

Until she met her future husband, Priscilla, who attended Harvard on a scholarship, had struggled to fit in, she said, explaining that she didn’t understand the other richer girls who went to college and all looked the same. .

Priscilla’s comments come as Facebook’s inner workings will once again be exposed by a whistleblower on Monday, as MPs in the UK prepare to gather evidence.

Former Facebook employee Frances Haugen has made numerous scorching claims about the tech giant since she released thousands of pages of internal investigative documents that she secretly copied before quitting her job with the company’s civil integrity department.

She has already spoken out about the social network across the pond on television and in front of politicians, claiming that Facebook platforms “harm children, fuel division and weaken our democracy,” and that it refuses to change its products because executives prioritize profit over safety.

Ms Haugen also accused the tech giant of being aware of the apparent damage Instagram could do to some teens and their body image, saying the company had been dishonest in its public fight against hate content and misinformation by hiding research. showing that it has such content.

On Monday afternoon, she will face questions from a UK parliamentary committee examining the draft online safety law as the government works out how to tackle the regulation of tech companies and social media.

Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg has dismissed Ms. Haugen’s claims, saying her attacks on the company “misrepresented” the work it does.

He said the company “cares deeply about things like safety, wellness and mental health” and that Ms. Haugen’s recent evidence before a US congressional committee “just doesn’t reflect the company we know.”

At the heart of these allegations is the idea that profit is more important to us than safety and well-being. That’s just not true,” he added.

Facebook is reportedly planning to rename its company name in an apparent effort to distance its wider company from the many controversies of recent years.

However, when asked about her thoughts on the impact Instagram is having on young teens, Priscilla said parents should talk to their kids and encourage them to share their feelings.

Elsewhere, Priscilla revealed that the couple is raising their two daughters as Jewish, but also incorporating elements of Chinese culture into their upbringing, with Mark saying a Jewish prayer in Mandarin with his children before bed.

Priscilla grew up speaking both Mandarin and Cantonese but said her two daughters are not bilingual even though she has tried, adding that she and Mark made sure they are “multicultural”.

The family has a Shabbat dinner with their friends on Friday, where Priscilla serves Chinese delicacies in addition to kosher food.

Priscilla reflected on the couple’s decision to donate their Facebook shares to charity through their CZI (Chan Zuckerberg Initiative).

She said her husband has always known that giving back is Priscilla’s “life mission” and chose to give back the money he earned from Facebook back in 2005.

The mother-of-two also said she didn’t care about the accusation that Facebook makes money — money used by CZI — by providing a platform for hate speech and other divisive rhetoric.

She also admitted that she found claims that Facebook upsets racial hatred and said that Facebook and her husband are trying to deal with these questions of racism and added that there is no cure for racism and that the issue is something that society needs. collectively should consider.

When asked whether tech giants should pay their taxes, Priscilla agreed that reforms needed to be made so that everyone could give their share, but emphasized that no one could escape the IRS.

She added that she felt a great responsibility to give back, telling how CZI donated $350 million (£253,810,200) to the Just Trust to help them reform the US justice system.

She said she saw with her own eyes the consequences that prison terms have for the loved ones of convicts.
