new Delhi. Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg (US CEO Donald Trump) US President Donald Trump ) Has expressed concern about Tiktok in front of US lawmakers months before Tiktok described the threat to the country’s security. Foreign media gave this information. On Sunday, the report said that Zuckerberg argued that TickTock, owned by the Chinese company Bytedance, is not committed to freedom of expression and is a threat to America’s technological dominance.
Mark spoke against Chinese Internet companies
The WSJ report said that in late October last year, Zuckerberg also made strong arguments against the growing penetration of Chinese Internet companies, when the US president hosted a private dinner with the CEO of Facebook at the White House. The CEO of Facebook had clearly pleaded that Washington should be more concerned about Chinese Internet companies than thinking about controlling Facebook.
Arguments were also given in front of senators
Similar arguments were also made during his meeting with several senators, after which concerns were shared with other officials and the government eventually launched a national security review of the company. Trump earlier this month issued an executive order, which gives ByteDance the option to divest from its TickTalk operation in the US within 90 days. Facebook has recently launched the Reels feature on Instagram, which has a function similar to TickTalk.
