France threat­ens new rules on Face­book

The Tribune (SLO) - - News -

France wel­comed Face­book CEO Mark Zuckerberg to Paris on Fri­day with the threat of sweep­ing new reg­u­la­tions against his so­cial me­dia be­he­moth – and Zuckerberg him­self called that pro­posal a good thing.

Zuckerberg came to France to show that Face­book is work­ing hard to limit vi­o­lent ex­trem­ism and hate speech.

Just be­fore Zuckerberg met French Pres­i­dent Em­manuel Macron in Paris, a group of of­fi­cials re­leased a report call­ing for laws al­low­ing the French gov­ern­ment to in­ves­ti­gate and fine so­cial net­works that don’t take re­spon­si­bil­ity for their con­tent.
