Mark Zuckerberg’s co-founder wants Facebook regulated by government

Chris Hughes was once a partner of Facebook owner Mark Zuckerberg but this time his partner wants the government to regulate Facebook and stop it from monopolizing social media business.

He told CNN that Mark is good and kind person. "But I'm angry that his focus on growth led him to sacrifice security and civility for clicks," he claimed.

"I'm disappointed in myself and the early Facebook team for not thinking more about how the News Feed algorithm could change our culture, influence elections and empower nationalist leaders. And I'm worried that Mark has surrounded himself with a team that reinforces his beliefs instead of challenging them," Hughes said.

He is considered one of the latest business persons to call for regulating and breaking up Facebook because it is violating privacy protocols not only in business but as well as in personal matters of the Three Billion members of Facebook.

Hughes has accused Facebook's involvement on a wave of reported scandals as well as data privacy, spread of disinformation, including election meddling issues.

Zuckerberg, for his part said, he is open to some regulation. He even recommended vital areas where he believes regulation should start.

Hughes claimed that Zuckerberg's goal for domination has made Facebook company to control the world's social media revenue of about 80%. Zuckerberg has recently acquired Instagram and Whatsapp and Hughes wants him to reverse acquisition of both Whatsapp and Instagram.
He wants the Trump government to establish an agency that would impose regulations on tech companies including Facebook.
