Google opposes Facebook-backed proposal for self-regulatory body in India: Report

Quick Summary

Google has grave reservations about developing a self-regulatory body for the social media sector in India to hear user complaints even though the proposal has support from Facebook and Twitter.

Self-regulatory bodies to police content in the social media sector are rare, though there have been instances of cooperation.

Such directives from a self-regulatory body could set a dangerous precedent, the sources also quoted the Google executive as saying.
