Mark Zuckerberg is known for a number of things: Founder and big cheese of Facebook, his anti-dress sense, how rude he was to Andrew Garfield in that Social Network movie, and, of course, his personal challenges he sets himself each year (starting way back in 2009).
Since introducing the personal challenge, Zuckerberg has taught himself a new language, build a personal assistant, meet a lot of new people etc.
But now, Mark has two new focusses and they partially restore my faith in the social network and the future of cryptocurrency.
Mark has acknowledged that Facebook has a number of fundamental flaws and has dedicated his 2018 to fix those flaws. He also has his sites set on learning as much as possible about crypto-currency. As a fellow crypto enthusiast, this has me excited about the possibility of a Facebook ICO by the year-end.
So what are the Facebook flaws he talks about?
Here is his direct quote:
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.
