Breaking up Facebook and other applications is not a good idea- Mark Zuckerberg



Breaking up Facebook and other applications is not a good idea- Mark Zuckerberg

Facebook Chief Executing Officer, Mark Zuckerberg is feeling very betrayed now and he has ended up firing back at the co-founder Chris Hughes.

Chris Hughes has suggested for regulations to split up applications like WhatsApp, Instagram, and Facebook. In an interview with France Info in Paris Chief Executing Officer of Facebook, Mark Zuckerberg said:

 “When I read what he wrote, my main reaction was that what he’s proposing that we do isn’t going to do anything to help solve those issues. So I think that if what you care about our democracy and elections, then you want a company like us can invest billions of dollars per year like we are in building up really advanced tools to fight election interference.”

The idea of Mark Zuckerberg is that Facebook is the only application which is suffering from privacy as well as safety issues. Breaking up the company will not be the solution to any of the problems and instead of that safeguard the social network. It is expected that the other applications from Facebook will have fewer economies of scale when investing in safety technology like artificial intelligence.

Chris Hughes said:

“Mark’s power is unprecedented and un-American.”

The first President of Facebook Sean Parker and Chief Chamath Palihapitiya have earlier said that the social network will build an impact in the society and they were right all along.

Mark is still arguing about the size benefits of Facebook by saying:

“Our budget for safety this year is bigger than the whole revenue of our company was when we went public earlier this decade. A lot of that is because we can build a successful business that can now support that. You know, we invest more in safety than anyone in social media.”

According to the claims from Hughes:

“Well [Hughes] was talking about a very specific idea of breaking up the company to solve some of the social issues that we face” to which Mark said “The way that I look at this is, there are real issues. There are real issues around harmful content and finding the right balance between expression and safety, for preventing election interference, on privacy.”

It is very clear that breaking up the company will not end up doing any help. The Vice President of communications and the former Deputy Prime Minister Nick Clegg was screened by Mar by saying:

 “What matters is not the size but rather the rights and interests of consumers, and our accountability to the governments and legislators who oversee commerce and communications. Big in itself isn’t bad. Success should not be penalized.”

It is very important for a company to protect its customers. It is important for Facebook to simply scale up and fix the privacy issue rather than splitting the company up into pieces. Hughes tried to make people understand about the whole situation simply by saying:

 “Competition alone wouldn’t necessarily spur privacy protection — regulation is required to ensure accountability — but Facebook’s lock on the market guarantees that users can’t protest by moving to alternative platforms,” he writes. After Cambridge Analytica “people did not leave the company’s platforms en masse. After all, where would they go?”

Zuckerberg will come with its own support for interoperability, which is the core tenet of regulation so that users are able to switch to another social media platform without any kind of hassle. Splitting up all the applications related to Facebook like WhatsApp and Instagram should be respectfully added and maintained to avoid any kind of problem in the application.
