Facebook’s chief Mark Zuckerberg calls for the government’s ‘active role’ in regulating the internet. To protect people from harm, he argues the needs of new regulations of these four areas: harmful content, protection of elections, privacy, and data portability. Zuckerberg said that he would support more countries that adopt rules in line with the European union’s sweeping General Data Protection Regulation. He believes that it would be good for the internet if many countries adopted GDPR as a common framework.

Zuckerburg said that there should be an agreed standard of what is considered harmful content. A report also says that Facebook has already made significant changes in political ads. Advertisers from different countries must confirm their identities before buying political ads. He stated that the rules governing the internet give the generation of entrepreneurs to build services that changed the world and created a lot of value in people’s lives. “It is now time to update the rules to define clear responsibilities for people, companies, and governments going forward”, the Facebook chief added.
