New Delhi: Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg on Tuesday broke his silence, hit back a whistleblower’s allegation that the giant company priorities profits over safety, as “just not true”.
Facebook has around 3 billion monthly users across the globe. The company is going through one of its worst crises due to revelations by a whistleblower.
“The argument that we deliberately push content that makes people angry for profit is deeply illogical,” Zuckerberg wrote in a note to Facebook employees that he then posted on his account, 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.”
