Facebook CEO Zuckerberg will Meet Conservatives on the Political Bias Flap
On Wednesday, some 12 ‘conservative thought leaders’ will be going to join the meeting with Mark Zuckerberg, a Facebook spokesman said. So among the invitees there will be Fox News Channel’s ‘The Five’ co-host Zac Moffatta and Dana Perino, the co-founder of the Targeted Victory i.e. a technology company that aims only to bring transparency to the media buying and media personality Glenn Beck.
Last week, Facebook came under the fire when an unnamed former employee told the technology news website Gizmodo that the workers are often omitted to conservative political stories from the company’s ‘trending’ list of the topics.
Mark Zuckerberg told that Facebook has yet found no evidence that whether this report is true or not, but they would continue to investigate. A US Senate committee has also opened the inquiry into Facebook’s practices.
Beck, a former of the Fox News host, took to Facebook early Sunday and said that he is going to the meeting in the Menlo Park in California and it would be very interesting to look in the eye of Zuckerberg as he explains.
On Friday, in the media relations section, Facebook outlined its ‘Trending Topics’ guidelines and stated that the reviewers are neither allowed nor advised to discriminate against the sources.
For more than 1 billion of daily active users, Facebook now valued at around $350 billion and it has become a bigger source of the news.
