Facebook COO Sheryl Sandberg told NBC's Savannah Guthrie that she expects Facebook will discover additional breaches in personal information when conducting audits of other third-party data providers, prompted by Cambrdige Analytica's misuse.

I’m not going to sit here and say that we’re not going to find more because we are.
— Sheryl Sandberg

Her reasoning:

“We cared about privacy all along but I think we got the balance wrong,” Sandberg told Guthrie, noting that there are good cases of data sharing for social experiences, like connecting virtually with friends or seeing their music playlists.

“I think we were very idealistic and not rigorous enough and then there’s the possible misuse. What we are focused on is making sure those possible use cases get shut down."

Online learning can be frustrating for students, teachers and parents, but some methods are working.

The big picture: Just as companies are using this era of telework to try new things, some principals, teachers and education startups are treating remote learning as a period of experimentation, too.

Sen. Elizabeth Warren and Hillary Clinton both are slated to speak on the Wednesday of the Democratic convention — Aug. 19 — four sources familiar with the planning told Axios.

Why it matters: That's the same night Joe Biden's running mate (to be revealed next week) will address the nation. Clinton and Warren represent two of the most influential wise-women of Democratic politics with the potential to turn out millions of establishment and progressive voters in November.
