On Monday, a group of Facebook employees organized and formally requested permission as a form of protest. According to New York Times, employees created an automated email message to clarify that they do not agree with Facebook's attitude towards the posts of their President USA.
Employees did not even hesitate to judge her platform and through their personal social media accounts.
In recent days, many demonstrations and protests have erupted in the country over the killing of George Floyd by Minneapolis police. On Friday, Trump posted on SOCIAL MEDIA, threatening protesters.
The Times notes that other officials have taken similar steps to show their displeasure. However, what everyone seems to agree on is that the company's specific stance is "the most serious challenge to Mr. Zuckerberg's leadership" in Facebook history.
Mark Zuckerberg, for his part, made a post on Facebook explaining last week that they did not take any action against Donald Trump, as the company's policy is to allow as much freedom of expression as possible.
The Twitter pointed to Trump's post as contrary to the platform's policies, as it supports violence.
Trump responded directly on Twitter, even threatening to "shut down" social media.
"Unlike Twitter, it is not in our policy to warn against publications that may incite violence, because we believe that if a post incites violence, it should be removed regardless of whether it is notable, even if it comes from a political Zuckerberg wrote.
It is clear that Facebook's response did not satisfy many of its employees.
The problems of the popular social networking platform have been going on for quite some time. Facebook released new rules last year, effectively allowing politicians to talk freely about many issues, while everyone else is being monitored. Employees were still opposed to the company's decision.
With the current tense situation in the country, the balance is very delicate and certainly Facebook must be careful in its moves, since it has already received a lot of criticism from the public.
