Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg has defended the decision of the Online network, politicians, advertising to allow ads with misleading content.
“I don’t think most people want to live in a world in which the only things you can publish, of which Tech companies believe that you will agree to 100 percent,” said Zuckerberg during an appearance in the Georgetown University late Thursday. “We think that people must get the opportunity to see what politicians say.”
Facebook was in the past few days, under criticism in the United States, after the camp of US President Donald Trump released an ad in which the democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden is accused without any basis of corruption. Channels such as CNN refused to show the Clip, Facebook has left the Spot, however, on its platform spread. Senator Elizabeth Warren, another presidential candidate of the Democrats, placed thereupon in the case of Facebook, as a Protest, an ad with misleading statements about Zuckerberg. Also this Video remained at the Facebook online.
Facebook is currently the from all sides in the United States under political pressure. The Democrats accuse the Online network, still not enough against false information to the company. The Republicans complain that conservative voices would be suppressed. Trumps government launched a competition investigation into the Online network, what is the pressure intensified.
Zuckerberg pointed to China as an ascendant force in Online services. If the local rules prevail, would be the public exchange of totally different values, he said, referring to Internet censorship in the country.
In his speech, Zuckerberg also criticized the successful Chinese App Tiktok and accused operators of censorship, which was even felt in the United States. So you could find about Tiktok hardly any Videos of the protests in Hong Kong, which are in other Social Media services are ubiquitous.
