Zuckerberg criticises Companies that bow to China. In a speech, Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg has criticised companies that are adapting to the values of China. “Is that the internet what we want?”
During a speech at Georgetown University, Mark Zuckerberg expressed concerns about American companies censoring themselves by adapting to China.
The CEO of Facebook states that China then sets the rules for opinions and innovation in the rest of the world.
The speech was broadcast live via Facebook. The day before, Zuckerberg announced the speech: “It is an unfiltered view of how I feel about these questions.”
Possibly in response to the earlier leaked audio recordings on which an unfiltered Mark Zuckerberg could be heard.
In his speech, Zuckerberg compared the popular apps WhatsApp and TikTok. With the idea that Facebook’s WhatsApp is protected by secure encryption, which means that protesters and activists, among others, use the app. That while TikTok removes images about the protests in Hong Kong.
Facebook does not work in China because the company found no agreement with the country. “Now we have more freedom to express ourselves and stand up for what we believe in, and to fight for freedom of expression around the world.”
