Like? Macron, Facebook's Zuckerberg meet amid calls for tighter regulation

ROUGH CUT.

NO REPORTER NARRATION.

Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg met with President Emmanuel Macron at the Elysee Palace in Paris on Friday (May 10) - shortly after a report commissioned by the president stated that French authorities should have more access to Facebook's algorithms and greater scope to audit the social media company's internal policies against hate speech.

It comes after Facebook has been heavily criticized by politicians and the public for its failure to more rapidly remove footage of the March shooting attack in Christchurch, New Zealand from its network.

Fifty people were killed in the assault, with footage of it circulating online for days.

Macron wants France to take a leading role on tech regulation, seeking to strike a balance between what he perceives as the United States' laissez-faire stance and China's iron grip on the Internet.
