Hillary Clinton wants to be Facebook’s next CEO
GB news 24 desk//
Hillary Clinton has a new career path in mind and it is miles away from the world of politics.
On last Friday, Clinton stopped by Harvard to receive the Radcliffe Medal, which is given to people who have “had a transformative impact on society,” reports CNET. When Clinton was asked by Attorney General Maura Healey which company she would like to be CEO of if she were given the opportunity, she had a quick and interesting response: Facebook.
“It’s the biggest news platform in the world,” she explained. “Most people in our country get their news — true or not — from Facebook.”
Clinton recognized Facebook for handling some of the “unexpected consequences of their business model” which “is critical to our democracy that people get accurate information on which to make decisions.”
Not unlike Clinton, Facebook’s Mark Zuckerburg is no stranger to controversy. The company is working on earning its user’s trust back after the Cambridge Analytica incident. In the first three months of the year, Facebook has closed 583 million fake accounts.
The company has also cleared off 2.5 million hate speech posts, 1.9 million terroristic propaganda posts, 3.4 million posts including graphic violence, and 21 million posts featuring nudity or sexual activity. Earlier in the week, the social media platform announced an expansion of efforts to prevent revenge porn. Unfortunately, users would first have to upload the photos they fear will be shared, and then Facebook would stop the images from going up on the site.
