Speaking in an interview to news site Vox, Facebook Chief Mark Zuckerberg said that it will take a few years to fix issues.
Zuckerberg also retaliated to the criticism Facebook faced by Apple CEO Tim Cook. He said that Facebook has been “idealistic’ and focusing on positive aspects of connections and didn’t think about negative side.
“We didn’t spend enough time investing in, or thinking through, some of the downside uses of the tools.”
To Tim Cook’s criticism on Facebook, he said
“I find that argument — that if you’re not paying that somehow we can’t care about you, to be extremely glib. And not at all aligned with the truth,”
Speaking about how much time it will take to fix issues, Mark said
“I think we will dig through this hole, but it will take a few years. I wish I could solve all these issues in three months or six months, but I just think the reality is that solving some of these questions is just going to take a longer period of time.”
He further said,
“The reality here is that if you want to build a service that helps connect everyone in the world, then there are a lot of people who can’t afford to pay. And therefore, as with a lot of media, having an advertising-supported model is the only rational model.”
