Zuckerberg rejects allegations against Facebook

Facebook chief Mark Zuckerberg (Mark Zuckerberg) responded to a series of allegations by whistleblower Francis Hogan, denying that the social media company puts profits before user safety.

"The crux of these claims is that we put profit before safety and well-being," Zuckerberg said in an article published on his platform's personal page. this is not true.

Zuckerberg's comments came after the Wall Street Journal report relied on an internal Facebook search by Hugin, who left the social media company in May.

These stories highlight many of the issues with the Facebook service that the company is aware of. But you either ignore it or don't solve it. That includes research showing that Facebook recognizes that Instagram is bad for teens' mental health.

In all the articles published, I pay special attention to questions related to our work with children. I spend a lot of time thinking about what kind of experience I want my children and others online to have. It is very important to me that everything we build is safe and good for children.

Zuckerberg's post came after Hogan testified before senators on Capitol Hill about the problems social media companies are creating for the company.

Many of the allegations against Facebook are meaningless

Zuckerberg said, without mentioning Hugin, that many of the statements are meaningless. If we should ignore research, then why should we create a sophisticated research plan to understand these important questions. If we don't care about fighting malicious content, why do we hire more people dedicated to this purpose than any other company in our field. If we want to hide our results, why do we set industry-leading standards for the transparency and reporting we do? If social media is the cause of social polarization, why are we seeing increasing polarization in the United States while many countries that use social media widely around the world remain stable or in decline.

Zuckerberg also added that the claim that we are deliberately promoting objectionable content for profit is completely illogical. We make money from ads, and advertisers keep telling us that they don't want their ads to appear next to malicious or angry content.

Zuckerberg also called on Congress to update Internet regulations to limit the age at which young people can use Internet services. And how tech companies should verify the ages of users. And how companies need to strike a balance between protecting children's privacy and educating parents about children's online activities.

He wrote that private companies should not make all decisions alone, just as they should when balancing other social problems. For this reason, we have been committed to updating Internet regulations for many years.
