Facebook has become an important part of our lives. And most of us do know who Facebook CEO is! Mark Zuckerberg has recently rejected a US lawmaker’s call to break his company. Zuckerberg said that he’s not going to sell WhatsApp or Instagram at any cost.
Senator Josh Hawley (Missouri Republican) tweeted that he met Zuckerberg during his visit to Washington, DC on Thursday, and asked him to sell Instagram and WhatsApp.
“Just finished meeting with @facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg. I had a frank conversation. Challenged him to do two things to show FB is serious about bias, privacy & competition. 1) Sell WhatsApp & Instagram 2) Submit to independent, third-party audit on censorship. He said no to both,” tweeted Hawley, one of Facebook’s biggest critics.
Zuckerberg also met President Donald Trump in the Oval Office. “Nice meeting with Mark Zuckerberg of @Facebook in the Oval Office today,” tweeted Trump. This is Facebook CEO’s first public trip to Washington since he testified before House and Senate committees in April last year over the Cambridge Analytica data scandal affecting 87 million users globally.
Several US senators have called for breaking up the social network amid repeated data breaches and privacy violations on the platform. Zuckerberg, however, rejected all the calls, saying the size of the social media giant was actually a benefit to its users and the security of the democratic process according to a report recently published by IANS.
