Mark Zuckerberg

Facebook founder, Mark Zuckerberg is looking to fix the biggest social media, Facebook in new year resolution.

In the post on Facebook, Mark said that The world feels anxious and divided, and Facebook has a lot of work to do. The problem the Facebook CEO tends to fix was not reported or how he intends to fix them, but 2017 has showed the massive impact Facebook could have in our world.

Every year I take on a personal challenge to learn something new. I've visited every US state, run 365 miles, built an AI for my home, read 25 books, and learned Mandarin.

I started doing these challenges in 2009. That first year the economy was in a deep recession and Facebook was not yet profitable. We needed to get serious about making sure Facebook had a sustainable business model. It was a serious year, and I wore a tie every day as a reminder.

Today feels a lot like that first year. The world feels anxious and divided, and Facebook has a lot of work to do -- whether it's protecting our community from abuse and hate, defending against interference by nation states, or making sure that time spent on Facebook is time well spent.

My personal challenge for 2018 is to focus on fixing these important issues. We won't prevent all mistakes or abuse, but we currently make too many errors enforcing our policies and preventing misuse of our tools. If we're successful this year then we'll end 2018 on a much better trajectory.

This may not seem like a personal challenge on its face, but I think I'll learn more by focusing intensely on these issues than I would by doing something completely separate. These issues touch on questions of history, civics, political philosophy, media, government, and of course technology. I'm looking forward to bringing groups of experts together to discuss and help work through these topics.

For example, one of the most interesting questions in technology right now is about centralization vs decentralization. A lot of us got into technology because we believe it can be a decentralizing force that puts more power in people's hands. (The first four words of Facebook's mission have always been "give people the power".) Back in the 1990s and 2000s, most people believed technology would be a decentralizing force.

But today, many people have lost faith in that promise. With the rise of a small number of big tech companies — and governments using technology to watch their citizens — many people now believe technology only centralizes power rather than decentralizes it.

There are important counter-trends to this --like encryption and cryptocurrency -- that take power from centralized systems and put it back into people's hands. But they come with the risk of being harder to control. I'm interested to go deeper and study the positive and negative aspects of these technologies, and how best to use them in our services.

This will be a serious year of self-improvement and I'm looking forward to learning from working to fix our issues together.


Facebook CEO, Mark Zuckerberg and wife, Priscilla Chan are expecting their baby Number 2, and the new joy is a girl. 

Mark announced the news via his social media platform, Facebook, and wrote the long post on how he enjoyed being with his sisters, and the role they played in his life, and also wrote that Priscilla  also had two sisters who taught her the importance of family, caring for others and hard work.


Read his post here;

Priscilla and I are happy to share we're expecting another baby girl!

After our difficult experience having Max, we weren't sure what to expect or whether we'd be able to have another child. When Priscilla and I first found out she was pregnant again, our first hope was that the child would be healthy. My next hope was that it would be a girl. I cannot think of a greater gift than having a sister and I'm so happy Max and our new child will have each other.

I grew up with three sisters and they taught me to learn from smart, strong women. They weren't just my sisters but some of my best friends. They've gone on to write books, excel at performance, music, sports, cooking and their careers. They showed me how to compete and still laugh together afterwards.

Priscilla grew up with two sisters and they taught her the importance of family, caring for others and hard work. They supported each other as first generation college students and in their careers in medicine and business. They have so many inside jokes -- the kind only siblings can understand.

We are all better people because of the strong women in our lives -- sisters, mothers and friends. We can't wait to welcome our new little one and do our best to raise another strong woman.

The 13th richest man and the owner of the popular social network o the internet, Mark Zuckerberg took to his personal Facebook today to announce the donation both Priscillia and himself are donating to the center for disease control foundation.

The Ebola virus that had been in some part of Africa and killed more than 8,000 people find its way to the African heart, Nigeria through a Liberia man named Patrick Sawyer and killed more than 20 people before it was contained also found its way through another Liberian man to Texas, Eric Duncan.

This is a proactive measure by Mark and the wife. Please see the screenshot of the message below..
