Changing Facebook – level 2

17-05-2019 15:00

A co-founder of Facebook wrote in a newspaper that is time for the company to break up. He said that Facebook and its CEO, Mark Zuckerberg, have too much power.

However, he added that Zuckerberg is a good person, but he chose popularity and money over security and civility.

Other people want the government to regulate Facebook after its recent problems, such as data privacy. Zuckerberg said that he would think about some control of his company.

Difficult words: co-founder (someone who helps to found – start a company), CEO (boss; a chief executive officer), civility (thinking about other people).

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