‘Grand Committee’ Set To Probe Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg
It clearly seems like Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg (now owner of WhatsApp too) is in deep scrutiny.
Moreover, it appears that the UK-Canada joint ‘grand committee’ is urging Mark Zuckerberg to appear before them to answer certain questions.
According To Reports/Media
According to several reports, the Parliamentary Committees in Canada and Britain are both pleading Zuckerberg to testify. This will take place before a joint hearing of international lawmakers. The idea behind the scrutiny is to examine fake news and Internet as a whole.
Look, here’s the thing:
On Facebook, there’s a lot of news and media being shared and not all of it is true. In fact, most of what we read today is highlighted for one’s own motives and reasons. A lot of it is fake news too!
So, now, a UK-Canadian grand committee is now urging Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg to come before the court and answer their queries.
Head of the UK parliament joint committee, Damian Collins, is also joining forces with his counterparts in Canada for this motive. The idea is to pressurise the Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg to attend the hearings as he did before the European Parliament and US congress too.
The joint committee session is due to take place on November 27. It is being hosted by a grand committee. Other parliaments will also be attending it.
However, Collins did acknowledge that it is not possible for the Facebook CEO to be a part of every meeting or session. However, they feel that he is accountable for what his organisation is contributing to other countries. For that reason, they want him to be a part of it personally.
Problems With Facebook
Facebook is always under the radar for more than one reason.
This time, Mark Zuckerberg is being urged by the parliamentary forces in UK-Canada to be answerable for his actions. Moreover, and for what his site, Facebook is doing, posting and spreading.
