Mark Zuckerberg, founder of Facebook is heading to split Facebook into two entities in order to ensure privacy.
MARK ZUCKERBERG: Zuckerberg wrote a 3,200 page blog onto Facebook stating, “My focus for the last couple of years has been understanding and addressing the biggest challenges facing Facebook. This means taking positions on important issues concerning the future of the internet. In this note, I’ll outline our vision and principles around building a privacy-focused messaging and social networking platform. There’s a lot to do here, and we’re committed to working openly and consulting with experts across society as we develop this.”
Before jumping into splitting Facebook into two, Zuckerberg wants the company to spend at least a year consulting with experts, government, and law enforcement on how best to manage the private, closed-off service they will be using.
Zuckerberg stated this process could take years to perfect.
MARK ZUCKERBERG: “There are really important safety and content issues in messaging and if we don’t have the ability to see the content, we need to make sure we have different tools in place to handle that,” he stated.
He noted, “A few years ago, we probably would’ve rolled this out and tried to deal with issues as they came up with but now part of our new approach of trying to be more proactive about social issues is trying to build in from the ground up, getting this right upfront.”
