After the call for the closure of Facebook by Chris Hughes, co-founder of the social media platform Facebook and Mark Zuckerberg, the first American MP of Indian origin, Kamala Harris, has now said that serious discussions should be taken to divide Facebook
Dismissing the demand to shut down the company, Chief Executive Officer of Facebook Mark Zuckerberg said that the size of Facebook is indeed beneficial to protect its users and democratic process.
In an interview with French TV channel France-2, Facebook co-founder Chris Hughes had said that the time has come to shut down Facebook because Zuckerberg is more influential than uncontrolled power and influence, private sector or government has come under pressure
Kamala Harris, who is currently a California MP in the race for the 2020 presidential election, also said on Monday that America should seriously consider sharing the information on social media by Facebook. He said that Facebook is a facility on which no regulatory system is implemented.
Harris said that Facebook has increased a lot and it has kept the growth of its business above the interests of consumers, especially their right to privacy. When you see it, it's essentially a useful public service. There are very few people who have survived. Everyone is using Facebook at some level in their community and society and in their profession. So we have to identify that which is really it. This is an essential service and it is not within the scope of regulation.
Mark Zuckerberg said that if you worry about democracy and elections, then a company like us would be able to invest billions of dollars every year, as we are trying to create modern tools to deal with electoral interference.
