Facebook is committed to remaining free, CEO Mark Zuckerberg said Wednesday as he defended his company's place in Silicon Valley, NBC News reported.
Facebook has helped decentralize society, Zuckerberg said in conversation with Harvard law professor Jonathan Zittrain. It's the first in a series of public discussions Zuckerberg has committed to.
"We want to give everyone a voice. We want everyone to be able to connect with who they care about," Zuckerberg said.
The discussion comes as Facebook faces scrutiny from politicians around the world over its data privacy practices.
