Co-Founder Chris Hughes is concerned about Zuckerberg and the path he’s headed on. He lays out a good path of why it’s good to break it up, what the effects would be, and how competition would make this all thrive. I’m not a fan of government intervention, but there might be some merit to constraint on a company that monitors so much of our lives, and might eventually turn further against us. This is his entire statement on his feelings.

“Since then, Mark’s personal reputation and the reputation of Facebook have taken a nose-dive. The company’s mistakes — the sloppy privacy practices that dropped tens of millions of users’ data into a political consulting firm’s lap; the slow response to Russian agents, violent rhetoric and fake news; and the unbounded drive to capture ever more of our time and attention — dominate the headlines. It’s been 15 years since I co-founded Facebook at Harvard, and I haven’t worked at the company in a decade. But I feel a sense of anger and responsibility.”
