Facebook could block content in some countries, a Washington lobbyist for the company has said, adding that it has faced uncomfortable positions over “too much, maybe, free speech”.
The comments come amid increasing speculation that the company plans to enter the Chinese market, probably in collaboration with a local partner.
“Maybe we will block content in some countries, but not others,” Adam Conner told the Wall Street Journal (WSJ).”We are occasionally held in uncomfortable positions because now we’re allowing too much, maybe, free speech in countries that haven’t experienced it before.”
Asked whether Facebook stood by the remarks, a spokeswoman confirmed Conner, 25, worked for the company but said she could not offer further comment.
