Changing Facebook – level 1

17-05-2019 15:00

A co-founder of Facebook writes in a newspaper. He says that is time for the company to get smaller. He says that Facebook has too much power. He says that its boss, Mark Zuckerberg, has too much power, too.

He says that Zuckerberg is a good man. However, he chooses money over safety. He lets Facebook get less and less safe.

Facebook has problems. One of the problems is people’s privacy. Some people want the government to control Facebook. Zuckerberg says that this can happen.

Difficult words: co-founder (someone who helps to found – start a company), privacy (if you have privacy on the Internet, nobody can see information about you), government (the bosses of a country).

You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.
