Zuckerberg releases Facebook manifesto

The TeCake

"In times like these, the most important thing we at Facebook can do is develop the social infrastructure to give people the power to build a global community that works for all of us", he wrote. But Facebook has since tried to crack down on the spread of fake news by working with fact checkers, placing warning labels on suspect information and rethinking the format of its Trending Topics feature.

Zuckerberg, who says he isn't going to run for United States president, also addresses how the world can be made safer by Facebook, how people should connect more offline and build more relationships. "When we began, this idea was not controversial".

As for what you see on your Facebook news feed, Zuckerberg said that the goal is to get to a better system, not yet fully developed, that blends personal controls, community standards, local laws and a dash of artificial intelligence.

Civic engagement. "Just as TV became the primary medium for civic communication in the 1960s, social media is becoming this in the 21st century", Zuckerberg writes, setting out plans to boost civic engagement and help hundreds of millions of people around the world register to vote.

Zuckerberg wrote that Facebook stands for "building a global community", and that recently people have been questioning whether it is possible to build a global community that works for everyone.

Since its inception Facebook has been evolving non-stop. "Today we are close to taking our next step".

Donald Trump defends Melania and insists she is being 'so unfairly maligned'
It's no secret that the first lady hasn't exactly been the most public figure since husband Donald Trump became the president. I think he got really exhausted of Trump Tower when he couldn't move, and now he's basically got another version of it.

In an epically long letter just posted to his Facebook page, Mark Zuckerberg announced a series of changes to the social network's unofficial mission statement that has been a long time coming. "Our greatest challenges also need global responses - like ending terrorism, fighting climate change, and preventing pandemics". One billion Facebook users are active members of groups, and Zuckerberg sees those as ways to help facilitate real world interactions. Although the technology is "very early" in development, Zuckerberg explains that a system that can view photos and videos, recognize what it's looking at, and flag inappropriate content, already generating about a third of all Facebook's reports already.

In a 5,700-word manifesto, Zuckerberg, founder of the world's largest social network, quoted Abraham Lincoln, the USA president during the country's 19th century Civil War known for his eloquence, and offered a philosophical sweep that was unusual for a business magnate.

Zuckerberg also talks about using artificial intelligence to keep the community safe.

Survey Shows the Majority of Americans Are Stressed AF About Politics
Rural Americans were the most serene about Trump's victory, with only 33 percent feeling stress about the election result. For example, 53 percent of those with more than a high school education reported stress caused by the election outcome.

Zuckerberg's statement is a political one, given nationalist movements that have sprung up in several countries, including the USA with the election of President Donald Trump. "Going forward, there are even more cases where our community should be able to identify risks related to mental health, disease or crime", Zuckerberg wrote.
