The case against Mark Zuckerberg: Insiders say Facebook’s CEO chose growth over safety (Washington Post)

Washington Post: The case against Mark Zuckerberg: Insiders say Facebook’s CEO chose growth over safety. “Late last year, Mark Zuckerberg faced a choice: Comply with demands from Vietnam’s ruling Communist Party to censor anti-government dissidents or risk getting knocked offline in one of Facebook’s most lucrative Asian markets. In America, the tech CEO is a champion of free speech, reluctant to remove even malicious and misleading content from the platform. But in Vietnam, upholding the free speech rights of people who question government leaders could have come with a significant cost in a country where the social network earns more than $1 billion in annual revenue, according to a 2018 estimate by Amnesty International.”
