Following post explanation, Mark Zuckerberg appears on camera to apologize - The Jolt Journal

The last few days have been pretty rocky for both Facebook and Mark Zuckerberg due to the Cambridge Analytica controversy. Leaders around the world have been asking Zuckerberg for an explanation and he finally provided one in a Facebook post. Following the post and release of some new rules and policy initiatives, the company CEO granted a rare on-camera interview with CNN, and spoke to others like Recode, the New York Times and Wired.

When you go through the interviews, you can see Zuckerberg showing an actual apology for what’s happened. He said to Recode, “We let the community down and I feel really bad and I’m sorry about that.”

When speaking to CNN on whether or not Facebook should be regulated, Zuckerberg said, “I actually am not sure we shouldn’t be regulated,” and referenced how the company’s reaction to “bad actors” who try to manipulate elections has changed. While the company was not proactive in the 2016 election, he said that the company used AI tools during the French election and other events around the world to detect and filter out fake accounts.
