File photo of Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg during a town hall at Facebook's headquarters in Menlo Park, CaliforniaGerman prosecutors are again considering whether to press charges against Mark Zuckerberg and other Facebook executives for failing to staunch a tide of racist and threatening posts on the social network during an influx of migrants into Europe.
