Mark Zuckerberg Is Hiding Behind Facebook Fall Guy Nick Clegg

Following weeks of scandals, Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg perpetuates to remain relatively mute while the company’s VP of Global Affairs and Communications, Nick Clegg, perpetuates to downplay the convivial media giant’s issues as the focus of a media onslaught.

Facebook has dealt with a number of scandals in recent weeks predicated on the “Facebook Files” series from the Wall Street Journal which made a number of damning claims about the tech giant predicated on a series of internal company documents. Shortly afterward, former Facebook employee Frances Haugen came forward as the source of these documents and testified about the company afore Congress. Amidst all of this, Facebook then suffered its longest outage in years with all accommodations going offline for over six hours.

Zuckerberg has published a single Facebook post in which he verbally expressed that the idea “that we prioritize profit over safety and well-being” is “just erroneous,” but aside from this has been relatively mute.

Instead, Facebook VP of Global Affairs and Communications Nick Clegg has been publishing blog posts and making verbal expressions to the media in an endeavor to provide reassurance about the companies standing. Clegg accommodated five years as the UK’s deputy prime minister where he learned how to handle media and PR issues with relative facileness, but without the public faces of Zuckerberg and Sandberg, few appear to be comforted by Clegg’s comments.

Speaking to MSNBC’s Meet the Press, Clegg verbalized: “With a third of the world’s population on our platforms, of course you’re going to visually perceive the good, the deplorable and the unsightly of human nature. Our job is to mitigate and abbreviate the lamentable and amplify the good.”

Steven Levy, the author of the book “Facebook:” The Inside Story recently verbalized to the Guardian about the current situation and the lack of public appearances from Zuckerberg and Sandberg, verbalizing: “When he [Clegg] appears on these Sunday shows, the question is: ‘Who is he endeavoring to convince?’ Clearly, the people who are reprehenders of Facebook aren’t going to be turned around by him verbally expressing: ‘Most of what we do is good.’ That argument doesn’t get traction. But people who work at Facebook need somebody going in to forfend the company, because Mark and Sheryl have denoted, at least at this moment, that they do not have a taste for publicly forfending the company they built.”

Levy went on to discuss how the latest scandal differs from the customary weekly “Facebook-related” outrage, verbally expressing: “Someone is now presenting a case backed up with a plethora of documents. Facebook can quite accurately verbalize: ‘That’s just a cull of documents – they’re being cherrypicked.’ But the more astronomically immense question is: ‘Is Facebook going to shift the core of its posture?’ It probably could stem the bleeding if the right words emerged from Mark or Sheryl’s mouth. But what I’m auricularly discerning from inside the company is they’ve had it with that. When Mark apologizes, people just list all the other times he’s apologized. So, at least for now, he’s brazening it out.”
