Facebook may not be polarizing in general

I was recently informed by a friend that when presented with the argument that Facebook increases polarization, Mark Zuckerberg replied with the following argument: while the United States becomes very polarized, other countries with more traffic on Facebook and Instagram are getting less polarized or stay at similar levels of polarization. I have not done enough research to verify this, but I thought it might be helpful information for readers.
