Mark Zuckerberg says regulate Facebook as something between a telco and a newspaper.

The Facebook CEO proposed a new framing for how he thinks regulators should treat his company during a speech at the Munich Security Conference in Germany today, Reuters reports.


"Right now there are two frameworks that I think people have for existing industries — there's like newspapers and existing media, and then there's the telco-type model, which is 'the data just flows through you,' but you're not going to hold a telco responsible if someone says something harmful on a phone line," he said. "I actually think where we should be is somewhere in between."
