There has been global anger over the study that Facebook conducted in 2012 on the emotions of users without their knowledge. Privacy activists and regulators in some countries have alleged that Facebook manipulated feeds to try and control users' emotions.
Ms Sandberg emphatically denied this. "Facebook cannot control emotions of users. Facebook will not control emotions of users," she said.
Ms Sandberg said her company was "talking to regulators around the world."
