Zuckerberg describes need to balance local laws and free speech
Mark Zuckerberg tackled the thorny issue of how to balance free speech with local laws at Facebook’s first international town-hall Q&A in Colombia on Wednesday.
“Most countries have laws restricting some form of speech or another,” the CEO said. If Facebook were to let users post something that would be illegal in their country, would that result in more people being able to express themselves? The best course of action is often to remove the content, he suggested.
