Facebook chief Mark Zuckerberg has called on different states to tighten laws to ban dangerous online content. Facebook’s policy on political advertising has attracted a lot of criticism. He has heard a lot of criticism. Mark Zuckerberg spoke at a security conference in Munich, Germany. In it, he said that judging whether a statement was legal and legitimate could not be the job of an organization like Facebook.
But at the same time, additional tightening of social media control will undermine freedom of expression. Zuckerberg exemplifies China in this regard. In recent years there has been increasing pressure on social media such as Facebook to stop spreading false news and rumors online.
The BBC also wrote online that Facebook introduced new policies on political advertising in the United States and worldwide the following year. One of the policies was to specify the name of the payee for the specific campaign, and a copy of that advertisement was stored in a publicly searchable database for the next seven years. But this week, Facebook announced that political posts sponsored by social media stars will no longer be stored in the organization’s database.
Moreover, according to company policy, the truthfulness of the posts of politicians is not always verified. That’s why Zuckerberg emphasized the importance of tightening the law at that conference. “We do not want private institutions to replace the democratic process,” he said. Instead, Zuckerberg called for a new law to control social media.
He thinks that the current telecommunications and media companies law may be in the mix. “We will continue to do our utmost until such a law is enacted,” he said. Zuckerberg, however, acknowledged that the company was late to identify various state-run organized information campaigns, such as Russia on Facebook. On the other hand, those who create fake and dangerous content through social media are also becoming increasingly powerful in hiding their identity, hiding their IP addresses.
Facebook has a team of around 35,000 employees, whose work is to evaluate each content and evaluate its security aspects. With the help of artificial intelligence, the company deletes more than one million fake Facebook accounts every day.
“The budget we now have for content review is higher than the company’s original income in 2012 when we were listed on the capital market,” he said. At that time, our users were like 100 billion people. Meanwhile, Facebook and its affiliate platforms, such as Messenger, WhatsApp and Instagram, are gaining popularity among various criticisms of fake news, political ads or campaigns intended to hurt opponents. Earlier this month, WhatsApp reported that their worldwide number of users was 200 million, which is one-fourth of the world’s total population.
