How Facebook’s Response to Whistleblower Could Make Their Crisis Worse
Ann Skeet, senior director of leadership ethics at the Markkula Center for Applied Ethics at Santa Clara University said, "Zuckerberg's response reads, in part, like one from someone on a high school debate team. He's hoping to ‘win’ an argument rather than accept responsibility for the harms inflicted by his company's products.”
“[Zuckerberg] runs a company that provides service akin to those of utilities, without the counsel of a governing board, or the regulatory oversight of a public commission. Governance at its best generates new thinking about how to approach institutional challenges. Unfortunately, there is no evidence of new thinking in the company's response,” Skeet observed.
