Facebook as much of a threat as Huawei

The US has banned the Chinese company on the basis that it will use its hardware to spy, so it should do the same to the American social media giants, says Ngaire Woods. THE United States and some of its allies have excluded the Chinese technology company Huawei from their markets, yet they continue to ignore the similar threat posed by Facebook and other US digital giants. Democratic governments must now be equally decisive in dealing with this home-grown danger. Huawei is not only the world’s largest supplier of telecommunications equipment and its second-largest phone manufacturer; it is also the global leader in building ultra-high-speed 5G networks and, in this regard, is far ahead of any US competitor.
