The founder of Facebook defends the policies of his platform: one must assert something wrong, as long as one does not deliberately make it or invoke violence.

Facebook: Mark Zuckerberg does not want to delete Holocaust denials

Facebook chief Mark Zuckerberg does not want to banish contributions from Holocaust deniers from his platform. He said that he himself was a Jew and that re were a number of people who denied genocide of Jews during World War II. He's very insulting. "But in end, I don't think that our platform should take this down because I think re are things where different people are wrong. I don't think y're intentionally wrong, "he explained.

The interviewee Kara Swisher interrupted Zuckerberg at this point. She said that in case of Holocaust deniers this might well be intentional. Zuckerberg n said that it was difficult to doubt intention and to understand intention. All people would often say wrong things, including himself.

As long as you don't try to organize or attack someone, you can put that content on his side. This also applies if ors do not agree or are offended.

The anti-Defamation league civil rights organisation criticised that Facebook had a "moral and ethical obligation". It must prohibit users from spreading Holocaust denial. In social networks too, utterances of Zuckerberg triggered critical reactions.

Zuckerberg later added in an addendum: "I personally find denial of Holocaust deeply offensive, and I absolutely did not want to defend intention of people who deny it." The goal of Facebook is not to prevent people from saying something wrong. But we want to stop spread of false news and misinformation. If a post calls for violence or hatred against individual groups, it would be removed.

In Germany, contributions to Facebook that deny Holocaust are banned. Facebook adheres to national legislation, and in Germany denial of Holocaust is prohibited.
