PALO ALTO, U.S. -- Mark Zuckerberg said there is a "coordinated effort" to misrepresent Facebook's efforts to protect its users as the U.S. social media giant's earnings figures on Monday again showed the Asia-Pacific region leading in user growth. 

Figures for the quarter ended Sept. 30 came shortly after leaked internal documents detailing the company's decision-making process on issues such as misinformation, extremism and hate speech were widely reported on Monday.
