Mark Zuckerberg Calls Out Chinese Social Media as a Threat to American Democracy
Are Chinese social media companies a threat to global free speech?
Facebook has drawn a lot of criticism in the past year over concerns about privacy, censorship, and political meddling on the platform.
In a speech last week at Georgetown University, CEO Mark Zuckerberg outlined Facebook’s content moderation guidelines, affirmed the platform’s dedication to free expression, and criticized Chinese social media companies for their government influenced censorship.
The ongoing Hong Kong protests have magnified concerns over Chinese censorship, especially on global social media platforms like TikTok.
Zuckerberg framed the emerging battle between American and Chinese tech giants as an ideological threat to American values.
Which nation’s values are going to determine what speech is going to be allowed for decades to come?" Zuckerberg asked. “Are we going to continue fighting to give more people a voice to be heard, or are we going to pull back from free expression?”
