Mark Zuckerberg Pressures Lawmakers To Scrutinize Apple

Published

on

A new report from The Wall Street Journal says Mark Zuckerberg has recently emerged as an “active political player.” The head of Facebook began to regularly communicate with senior White House adviser Jared Kushner (Jared Kushner) and President Donald Trump himself. This is because Facebook is facing new competition from TikTok, as well as scrutiny from antitrust authorities.

Zuckerberg’s new political moves are part of an effort to protect his company from pressures from antitrust controls, privacy policies and accusations of spreading disinformation and conspiracy theories, the publication said. Building relationships with political leaders, media representatives and activists is now critical to maintaining Facebook’s leading position in the global marketplace.

As for Apple, Mark Zuckerberg pressured lawmakers to take a close look at the Cupertino-based company. In addition, the Facebook CEO also demanded a thorough review of TikTok. According to sources familiar with the situation, his main complaint was that Apple is not as closely watched as Facebook, although it owns an operating system that is used by a huge number of Americans.
