Mired in several privacy scandals, Facebook must hire Microsoft President Brad Smith as its new CEO as it is right time for Mark Zuckerberg to step down, a former Facebook security chief has stressed.
"There is a legitimate argument that he has too much power. He needs to give up some of that power," Stamos was quoted as saying.
"Facebook needs to have an internal revolution on the culture of how products are built. If I was him, I would go hire a new CEO for the company," Stamos said, adding Smith could be a good fit as an "adult who has been through this before".
In a recent opinion piece in The New York Times, Facebook Co-founder Chris Hughes said the government must hold Mark (Zuckerberg) accountable, adding that it is time to break up the social networking giant.
"You could break us up, you could break other tech companies up, but you actually don't address the underlying issues people are concerned about," Sandberg told CNBC.
Democratic presidential candidate Senator Kamala Harris has stressed that authorities should take a serious look at breaking up Facebook as the social network platform is a "utility that has gone unregulated".
