Co-Founder of Facebook Now Wants Facebook to be Broken Up.

In an op-ed for ‘The New York Times,’Facebook Co-Founder Chris Hughes says regulations are needed for U.S. tech companies.

Hughes, who left the company a decade ago, helped originally start it with CEO Mark Zuckerberg 15 years ago from his Havard dorm.

Hughes says Facebook has limited competition now and requires innovation.

In the op-ed, he writes that Zuckerberg has surrounded himself with those who don’t challenge him enough.

“Mark is a good, kind person,” Hughes says, “but I’m angry that his focus on growth led him to sacrifice security and civility for clicks.”- Chris Hughes, via ‘The New York Times’

Hughes even writes that Facebook should give up control of Instagram due to its “monopoly-like” status.

He goes on to regret not noticing the effect Facebook’s news fed could have.

“I am disappointed in myself and early Facebook team for not thinking more about how the new feed  algorithm  could change our culture”-Chris Hughes, via ‘The New York Times’

Earlier this year, in his own op-ed, Zuckerberg indicated that regulations might be required.

However, Hughes says those perspectives are intended for Facebook to keep away from possible antitrust cases later on.
