Zuckerberg Calls For Tighter Internet Regulations…

Says: ‘We Need More Active Role For Governments’

Spencer Kimball – CNBC March 30, 2019

  • Zuckerberg said new regulations are needed to protect society from harmful content, ensure election integrity, protect people’s privacy and to guarantee data portability.
  • The Facebook CEO also endorsed a global framework to protect people’s privacy along the lines of the European Union’s General Data Protection Regulation.
  • Facebook has faced a torrent of public criticism over its handling of Russian intervention in the 2016 U.S. presidential election through social media and policies on hate speech that many governments and users consider too lax.

Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg on Saturday called for governments to play a greater role in regulating the Internet, citing four areas where he believes better rules are needed.

Zuckerberg said new regulations are needed to protect society from harmful content, ensure election integrity, protect people’s privacy and to guarantee data portability.

Facebook has faced a torrent of public criticism over its handling of Russian intervention in the 2016 U.S. presidential election and its policies on hate speech that many governments and users consider too lax. At the same time, conservative lawmakers in the U.S. have accused Facebook of political bias and censorship.

Zuckerberg proposed regulating harmful content by setting up independent bodies to set standards for what is considered terrorist propaganda and hate speech and is therefore prohibited.

“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.”

Facebook is also creating an independent body so people can appeal its decisions. Zuckerberg said Facebook is currently working with governments, including French officials, to make sure its systems to review content are effective.

Zuckerberg also called for governments to pass legislation to regulate political ads on the Internet, saying despite Facebook’s efforts, it is difficult to determine when an ad should be considered political.

“Our systems would be more effective if regulation created common standards for verifying political actors,” Zuckerberg said.

The Facebook CEO also endorsed a global framework to protect people’s privacy along the lines of the European Union’s General Data Protection Regulation: “I believe it would be good for the internet if more countries adopted regulation such as GDPR as a common framework,” Zuckerberg said.

He also called for regulation to guarantee data portability, ensuring that users can move data between services. Zuckerberg endorsed a standard data transfer format toward this end.

“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.”

    About Censorship
    ” Fear them not therefore :
    for there is nothing covered,
    that shall not be revealed:
    and hid that shall not be known.”

    The one factor that has been responsible for maintaining the corrupt world system up to now, has been the act of censorship. Individual censorship and collective censorship. Censorship can be regarded as one of the most despicable evils perpetrated by mankind. Everyone that has practiced censorship, is guilty of protecting a system that is totally corrupt.

    I am speaking in the past tense, because censorship is no longer possible in this world. The straw that broke the camels back is the Internet. It is no longer possible to withhold information from those who seek the truth. The system is now in a process of destroying itself. Everything that is covered will now be uncovered.

  2. Dear Mr. Zuckerberg,

    May I call you Dark?

    I’m so happy to see you increase your ability to fight cyberhate!!

    I feel so good knowing you are out there fighting for the good of humanity. I am absolutely relieved to find out that facebook is up to the challenge of stamping out those offensive and inappropriate expressions of pure unadulterated hate we so often come across as we peruse the Internet.

    I commend you thoroughly for your courage, honesty and perseverance in combating the scourge of our time: hate.

    You, Facebook, Google, Twitter, YouTube, the ADL and the Southern Poverty Law Center are in a league by yourselves: no organizations remotely come close to showing such determination in the promotion of civilized moral values.

    Thank Yahweh for organizations like yours!

    I have noticed that you have many career opportunities listed on your website and it would be an immense honor for me to work for your organization. I would like to help you in every way possible, and to that end, I have listed below just a few examples among many of those truly offensive and hurtful cyberhate dispensing “news” outlets.

    Please feel free to ask me for more examples of such glaring hate. I have reams of them.

    Happy To help fight cyberhate,

    Voltman
