Mark Zuckerberg Very Upset
Facebook CEO and co-founder Mark Zuckerberg is upset with Facebook Board member Marc Andreessen coming down severely on TRAI on its decision over net neutrality. Andreessen slammed TRAI ‘s decision of saying no to Facebook ‘s Free Basics. Backlash was observed over this on micro blogging site Twitter. CEO Mark Zuckerberg posted the following:
“I want to respond to Marc Andreessen’s comments about India yesterday. I found the comments deeply upsetting, and they do not represent the way Facebook or I think at all. India has been personally important to me and Facebook. Early on in my thinking about our mission, I traveled to India and was inspired by the humanity, spirit and values of the people. It solidified my understanding that when all people have the power to share their experiences, the entire world will make progress. Facebook stands for helping to connect people and giving them voice to shape their own future. But to shape the future we need to understand the past. As our community in India has grown, I’ve gained a deeper appreciation for the need to understand India’s history and culture. I’ve been inspired by how much progress India has made in building a strong nation and the largest democracy in the world, and I look forward to strengthening my connection to the country.”
Mark Andreesen later apologized for his ill comments on Indian politics and economics.
