Mark Zuckerberg, the infamous CEO of Facebook, after diabolically destroying personal privacy, allowing foreign meddling in American elections, and banning conservative speech and free speech in general, now wants government regulation.
Zuckerberg said new regulations are needed to protect society from harmful content, ensure election integrity, protect people's privacy and to guarantee data portability, reported CNBC.
"Internet companies should be accountable for enforcing standards on harmful content," Zuckerberg said. "It's impossible to remove all harmful content from the internet, but when people use dozens of different sharing services — all with their own policies and processes — we need a more standardized approach.
"Our systems would be more effective if regulation created common standards for verifying political actors.
"I believe it would be good for the internet if more countries adopted regulation such as GDPR as a common framework."
Concerning data portability Zuckerberg declared, "This is important for the internet — and for creating services people want," he said. "But this requires clear rules about who's responsible for protecting information when it moves between services."
Facebook has been busted repeatedly for banning conservative content in actions that resemble 'thought crimes' in Orwell's 1984.
