Mark Zuckerberg, chief executive officer of the company, spoke about his vision for the future of the company and its various applications and services with its new focus on privacy, prompting him to announce that Facebook will not store user data in some countries referring to “China” He said he would not back down on China’s pressure, unlike a number of other US technology companies, after China asked them to store their users’ data inside the country in private data centers.

Zuckerberg explained that the company’s new vision is to locate data centers that store sensitive user data such as images, conversations and publications, indicating that this may mean staying outside of some countries without mentioning their names.

However, Zuckerberg has differentiated between providing services to users of certain countries and storing data in them, adding that Facebook will not store data in countries with a record of violations of human rights, privacy and freedom of expression.

The dispute between Facebook and China began in 2009, which was blocked by Chinese authorities and prevented millions of users from accessing it, which prompted Facebook to make several attempts to try to restore service to work there, especially since the laws in China imposed since 2017 on any service to store user data within it.
