A secret recording surfaced: Zuckerberg defends dealings with Trump-posts

He had declared, among other things, that the threat of violence by governments, of the Facebook-is covered in the rules, reported the "New York Times" citing a transcript of the conversation.

In the controversy, it goes to a Tweet from Trump, which was also mirrored on the Facebook profile. The U.S. President responded to the first riot in Minneapolis after the death of the African-American George Floyd by police violence.

Trump: "When the looting begin, will be shot"

The President wrote in the Tweet, you'll create the control again, and he added: "When the looting begin, will be shot" - "when the looting starts, the shooting starts". The phrase is a historically prone quote. With these words in 1967, the then chief of police of Miami had announced a tough campaign against the black population.

Twitter sided Trumps Tweet with a warning, because it violates the prohibition of glorification of violence on the platform.

Zuckerberg sees no need to act

Zuckerberg said, however, as early as last week, the post had to be settled with Facebook's consistent, even when it is personally such a "gap end and an agitator rhetoric" strut to resist. "But my responsibility is not to respond personally, but as head of an Institution dedicated to the freedom of speech," he wrote in a Facebook post. Patrick Semansky/AP/dpa

This line of reasoning he followed in the video conference with the staff. The rules that Facebook had applied to the Trump contribution, ensured that the Video of Floyd's death to stay on the platform, he told the technology website "The Verge" according to.

Facebook-employees stored work

On Monday, the work in the home office laid down some Facebook employees. It was not known how many of the approximately 48,000 employees involved in this action. Two programmers resigned in Protest, as they have said on the Internet. He had the feeling that Facebook is "standing on the wrong side of history," wrote one of them.

Facebook employees to publicly criticize the decision of Zuckerberg, unlike Twitter, is not against a controversial Statement made by US President Donald Trump to proceed. "Mark is wrong - and I'll try as loud as possible, change his mind," wrote about Ryan Freitas, the product design for the Facebook Newsfeed in charge, on Monday on Twitter.

"I'm a Facebook employee, who is not at all with the decision of Mark agree, nothing against trump's latest contributions to the company, the fuel entirely clear of violence," said product designer Jason Stirman.

Zuckerberg also spoke with representatives of some African-American organizations, which were then critically on the Facebook Position. The President of the organization Color of Change, Rashad Robinson, said, after a roughly hour-long video conference with the Facebook in-chief of the financial service Bloomberg, he got the feeling that Zuckerberg's lack of understanding of the Problem.
