Salesforce CEO Says Facebook Has Been A ‘Train Wreck’ For Awhile


In a new interview, Salesforce CEO Marc Benioff says Facebook was a "train wreck" even before the laundry list of scandals recently struck the social media giant. Talking with CNBC, Benioff added that Facebook's management team has made the situations even worse. According to Business Insider, Benioff attacked Facebook at the World Economic Forum in Davos, saying it needed to be regulated due to its product being addictive. Since then, Facebook has become embroiled in the giant Cambridge Analytica data scandal and is still dealing with issues such as fake news and inappropriate content.
