Mark Zuckerberg, FB CEO defended Facebook and will not delay live stream feeds to reduce the reach of troubling content. He said a delay might have reduced the number of views in the NZ attacks live-streamed video, but it essentially breaks what live streaming is for people. Live streaming is more than broadcasting; it's communicating as people comment real time, and so a delay will break it. He condemned the NZ attacks.
