Washington (AFP) – Facebook chief executive Mark Zuckerberg told lawmakers Tuesday that he does not believe his company is a monopoly.
Zuckerberg rejected the suggestion in a Senate hearing that the social media giant, with over two billion users worldwide, has exclusive control over its market.
“It certainly doesn’t feel like that to me,” he said when asked if he thinks Facebook has a monopoly.
“The average American uses eight different apps to communicate with their friends and stay in touch with people. Ranging from texting apps to e-mail,” he said.
