Zuckerberg says Facebook is going to 'stand up for free expression' and allow people

Mark Zuckerberg declares Facebook is going to 'stand up for free expression' and allow people to post what they want - but the CEO admits the new move will 'p**s off a lot of people'

Mark Zuckerberg has declared that Facebook is 'going to stand up for free expression' in spite of the fact it will 'piss off a lot of people'.

The controversial CEO, 35, made the claim during a fiery appearance at the Silicon Slopes Tech Summit in Utah on Friday.

Zuckerberg told the audience that Facebook had previously tried to resist moves that would be branded as 'too offensive' - but says he now believes he is being asked to partake in 'excessive censorship'.

'Increasingly we're getting called to censor a lot of different kinds of content that makes me really uncomfortable,' he claimed.

'We're going to take down the content that's really harmful, but the line needs to be held at some point'.

The Facebook founder went on to bemoan: 'It kind of feels like the list of things that you're not allowed to say socially keeps on growing, and I'm not really okay with that'.

He then declared: 'This is the new approach [free expression], and I think it's going to p**s off a lot of people. But frankly the old approach was p**sing off a lot of people too, so let's try something different'.

Zuckerberg has been in the hot seat in recent months for refusing to ban political ads from Facebook - despite the fact fellow social media giant Twitter declared that they would stop sharing political advertisements.

The tech guru has also stated that Facebook will not fact-check political ads, resulting in a highly publicized showdown on Capitol Hill with Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.

Meanwhile, Zuckerberg's defiant appearance at the Utah tech summit came after Facebook disappointed Wall Street's expectations of fourth quarter growth earlier this week.

The results, revealed on Wednesday, raised concerns that Facebook's days of astronomical growth were firmly in the rearview mirror, and shares of the world's biggest social network dropped 7.2 per cent in extended trading.

Facebook reported its slowest-ever revenue growth for the fourth quarter, at 25 per cent.

Elsewhere on Wednesday, the company pledged better protections for Facebook users after the social media giant agreed to pay a $550 million settlement Wednesday over a lawsuit that claimed it illegally collected millions of users' biometric data without their consent.

Facebook did not admit wrongdoing in agreeing to the settlement, which requires court approval.

Zuckerberg has promised Facebook users privacy upgrades in light of the outcome of the suit, as the founder seeks to address the ongoing privacy concerns that have dogged the social media company

The Editors at Hareetz have been preemptively upset since last year:


"
There were a lot of interesting, and frustrating, details in Zuckerberg’s performance, but I was struck by the fact that a century after what would soon become known as the Nazi party was founded in in Germany, the most prolific purveyor of Nazi ideology today, and indeed of anti-Semitism in general and other forms of racism, is not the spawn of Josef Goebbels or Julius Streicher - but a 35 year-old American Jew. Indeed, for the conspiratorial minded, the richest Jew in the world.

I’m not about to embark on a "Mark Zuckerberg is the devil" column. There are others, much better qualified to assess his contribution to the degradation of humanity.

I doubt it very much.

First we had the staged smack talk between Soros and Zuckerberg, this was to set the scene. Now we have Zuckerberg claiming that he's against wokeness and censorship and that people can say whatever they want to.

Forgive my skepticism.


I do find it interesting that Facebook's popularity has dropped off since they started censoring conservative views, which has resulted in the share price dropping. It just shows how wokeness is not being accepted by the people as much as TPTB would have hoped for by now. The same thing has happened with Hollywood movies, Late night talk shows, and news outlets that push a one sided progressive agenda. But it is not the real reason for FB apparently relaxing their rules, that is an unrelated agenda.

This stunt by Zuckerberg is more about creating the perception that FB is now for everyone again so that all the people who are leaving or have left by their own choice, might reconsider and give FB another chance.

I never understood why they would ban so many conservative minded people, because it means that FB can no longer get data from them, and surely they want that.

I'm just trying to figure this shit out like you are.

this is why Soros is attacking Zuckerberg

I suspect Zuck is pro-Zionist to some extent and in a lot of ways the Pro-Zionist /Anglo camp is more in support of free speech rights these days.

I actually don't think ANY of these companies wanted to engage in censorship...

THE SHIT POSTING IS GOOD FOR BUSINESS

TWITTER is a shell of its former self now after all the bannings.. no one cares about it anymore except to read the orange man's tweets

Also the more they BAN the more CREDIBILITY they give the BANNED.

ridiculous shit is ignored or laughed at like flat earth.. shit that HITS HARD gets banned.. cuz the truth hurts.

Booty Judge is the chosen one, I guess.

Maybe all the other candidates were just propped up, to keep him under the radar long enough to convince a tiny minority of people that he had a chance.

So you could attack Elizabeth Warren and Biden and Sanders and Kamala Harris all you wanted, no one took Booty Judge serious, so no one even cracked a joke at his expense.

that's a great strategy, to let the dissident lefties go after other establishment candidates during early primaries. Then Booty emerges as the front man when it's too late to dig any dirt and do damage to his credibility. I'm guessing Biden is in it too as he's trying really hard to self destruct.

I mean, I definitely thought they would push Corey Booker and Kamala Harris harder, and that Pete the Cheat would be one of the first to fall by the way side.

I know E Michael Jones really doesn't like him. I think they are both from South Bend?

Rush Limbaugh thinks that the DNC is hesitant to give Bootyjuice the nomination.

"They're looking at Mayor Pete, 37-year-old gay guy, mayor of South Bend, loves to kiss his husband on the debate stage," Limbaugh said. "And they're saying, OK, how's this going to look, 37-year-old gay guy kissing his husband on stage next to Mr. Man Donald Trump? What's going to happen there?"

If the DNC runs him, it will be a walkover for Trump.
