Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg outlined the restrictions to employees on Thursday and details will be released next week, Facebook spokesman Joe Osborne said. < / P > < p > “what we hear from our employees is that they want to be able to choose to participate in discussions about social and political issues, rather than accidentally hearing such discussions at work.” Osborne said in a statement. “We are updating our staff policies and work tools to ensure that our culture remains respectful and inclusive.” Mr Osborne said the new rules would apply to employees discussing how executives deal with politically sensitive content on Facebook, the subject of intense debate within the company this summer. Facebook’s goal, he said, is to ensure that discussions about such decisions can still take place in “appropriate channels” and not impede other work-related discussions. In addition, Osborne said the company is also strengthening its anti harassment policy, which aims to maintain mutual respect among employees in dialogue and to protect employees who are not fully represented. < / P > < p > like other technology companies, Facebook prides itself on promoting open discussions within the company, while taking a tough stance on publicly disclosing such conversations. < / P > < p > on workplace, an internal social network similar to Facebook platform, employee dialogue can be freely conducted, and Zuckerberg will accept questions from employees in weekly Q & A activities. But as employees increasingly speak out about their differences with Zuckerberg, the content of the workplace conversation has leaked to the media, becoming a headache for Facebook. < / P > < p > the discussion became particularly heated after June, when Zuckerberg decided not to take action on a post by US President Donald Trump, which used a phrase related to apartheid and police violence.
