"I think that..... The motives matter and certainly, I don't think that We Are Making Mistake By considering India to be an authoritarian country ", Mark Zuckerberg has answered to a question that why is it safe to store the Indian Citizens Data not in India but in the US.

"The intent matters, right. and I think countries can come at this which open values and still conclude that something like that could be helpful".

"But I think that you need to be very careful about one of the thing is that if you set that precedent you are making it very easy for other countries that want the data not to protect their citizens, that don't have open values and that are much more autocratic but to be able to surveil them and find dissidents and lock them up," Zukerberg Stressed.

"Many countries following the approach of autocratic regimes adopting restrict data localisation policies where governments can more easily access people's data and I am highly concerned about that future", he said.

"Our instance on data localisation is a risk. That is, if we get blocked in a major country that will hurt our community and our business. But our principles aren't new on data localisation and this always has been a risk", The Facebook CEO added.

In the conversation with Harari, he said that for detecting interference in the democratic process FB needs to build up really advanced systems and more broadly being able to identify that.

"The idea is to identify when people are standing up networks of fake accounts that are not behaving like normal people would, to be able to weed those out and work with law enforcement and election commissions and Folks all around the world and the intelligence community to be able to coordinate and be able to deal with that effectively," Zukerberg said.

It is certainly important to stopping abuse, but, Zukerberg said, "I would argue that, even more, the deeper question: Is That the intrinsic design of the systems, right?"
