Washington: Following claims that Facebook fuels division, harms children and needs to be regulated, the social media giant’s CEO Mark Zuckerberg shot back and said that the claims of the company putting profit over safety is “just not true”.
“The argument that we deliberately push content that makes people angry for profit is deeply illogical,” Zuckerberg wrote in a note to the employees of Facebook. He then posted this on his account, several hours after a whistleblower testified before US lawmakers.
“I don’t know any tech company that sets out to build products that make people angry or depressed. The moral, business and product incentives all point in the opposite direction,” Zuckerberg was quoted as saying by news agency AFP.
