Zuckerberg to ‘Review’ Facebook Content Policies After Backlash | #facebookdating | #tinder | #pof


Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg said that he will review some of Facebook’s content policies after a backlash against his decision to leave up an incendiary post by President Donald Trump.

Writing in a Facebook post on Friday, Zuckerberg said that the company will review “policies allowing discussion and threats of state use of force to see if there are any amendments we should adopt.” Facebook  (FB) – Get Report shares closed 1.98% higher on Friday to $230.77.

Civil rights groups, as well as Facebook employees, criticized Zuckerberg sharply for the company’s inaction on a post by Trump with a reference to shooting protesters.  

The post was flagged by Twitter  (TWTR) – Get Report for glorifying violence, with critics noting that the phrase Trump used had a racist history dating back to the 1960s. Zuckerberg refused to take down the post, saying that “people need to know if the government is planning to deploy force.”

Facebook employees spoke out against the policy, with at least one engineer quitting the firm over Zuckerberg’s decision. Civil rights groups denounced Zuckerberg’s justification for the policy “incomprehensible.”
