Facebook’s Mark Zuckerberg Considers Changing the Policy that Led Posts of Trump

After Trump posted a Facebook post following the U.S. riots stating “when the looting starts, the shooting will begin,” there has been harsh criticism against Zuckerberg for not socializing him, and the founder and CEO fearing a confrontation with the president; He now says the policy on this matter will be re-examined but noted that “I fear this approach has the risk of turning us into content editors we dislike”

Facebook founder and CEO Mark Zuckerberg said Friday that he would consider changing the policy that led the company to leave in its platform posts posted by Donald Trump during the U.S. civil protest in response to the murder of African-American civilian George Floyd by a police officer. This is in fact a partial concession to his critics.

Zuckerberg did not promise specific policy changes in the post he published, a few days after some company employees abandoned their vigil in protest about leaving the posts, claiming Zuckerberg is continuing to seek excuses to avoid a confrontation with Trump. “I know many of you think we should have labeled the president’s posts a certain way,” Zuckerberg wrote, referring to his decision not to remove Trump’s messages that included the sentence “When the looting starts, the shooting will begin.”
