Mark Zuckerberg argues that Facebook will not be concerned with regulating what is said online. “I think we have a different policy than Twitter in this area,” Zuckerberg said in an interview with Fox News. “I don’t think Facebook, or internet platforms in general, should be arbitrators of the truth,” the CEO told CNBC.
Earlier, Twitter labeled tweets from US President Donald Trump as “potentially misleading information.” In response, Trump comes with a presidential order blaming Twitter, Facebook and Google for what their users say. The president says the companies are biased against conservatives.
Facebook has previously been criticized by the Democrats because the fact-checking that takes place on the platform is not applied to advertisements by politicians.
