Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg said Wednesday that Facebook should be regulated like companies in other areas of the media.
Zuckerberg spoke to CNN about the controversy surrounding Facebook’s impact on the 2016 election, and Zuckerberg said he cannot fully assess what that impact was. He said the overall picture of the election makes it hard to assess, leading CNN’s Laurie Segall to ask whether Facebook needs to be regulated.
“Given the stakes here, why shouldn’t Facebook be regulated?” Segall asked.
“I actually am not sure we shouldn’t be regulated,” Zuckerberg replied. “I think in general, technology is an increasingly important trend in the world, and I actually think the question is more, ‘What is the right regulation?’ rather than, ‘Yes or no, should it be regulated?’”
