Facebook responded to the criticism of its founder Chris Hughes who asked Mark Zuckerberg to release Instagram and WhatsApp from the social media platform.

Instead of agreeing with Hughes’ input, the spokesman Nick Clegg said if the company refused the request to make WhatsApp and Instagram a separate company. Clegg said that currently, the company is focusing on cooperating with many parties to prepare internet rules.

“Facebook accepts [Hughes’s criticism] if success is often followed by accountability. But you can’t force the process of accountability by asking American companies that have succeeded in separating the company,” Clegg wrote in an official statement as reported by Reuters.

“Accountability of technology companies can only be achieved through the introduction of new rules for the internet. That’s what Mark Zuckerberg stated.”

This statement is a respond to Hughes’s writings on The New York Times. He wrote if Facebook has now transformed into a company that monopolizes due to its big power.

Hughes’ Criticism Towards Facebook

In his writing, Hughes said he was angry and disappointed to see the condition of the company which he founded with Mark Zuckerberg and Dustin Moskovitz in 2004. Now, he stated that the company has too many scandals to go.

“It’s been 15 years since I co-founded Facebook at Harvard, and I haven’t worked in the company for a decade. But I’m angry and I feel like I have my responsibility too,” Hughes wrote in his opinion.

Along with the criticism, Hughes said if the US government could create a special agency that regulates technology companies.

“[Zuckerberg] has created a giant company that mobilizes many people and gives limited choices to users. The government can make sure whether we have never lost control of their attitude,” Hughes wrote.
