FB ready for Free Basics scrutiny, open for Twitter, Google

London, Dec 29: Countering allegations of gatekeeping in website selection on its free internet platform Free Basics, Facebook on Monday said it is open to the scrutiny of the process by any third party agency like IAMAI or Nasscom.


"We are also happy to have a third party audit what apps we accept and reject and why, and we have proposed this to IAMAI and NASSCOM. For the record, we have never rejected an app that complies with the guidelines, and we have had the conversation with operators that we wouldn't reject apps at their discretion," Facebook's Internet.Org Vice President Chris Daniels said.
