Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg acknowledged that connecting people through Facebook isn’t enough. He feels that FB has more responsibility to bring the world closer.
Mark launched its new mission statement “To give people the power to build community and bring the world closer together.” The Facebook original mission statement was “To give people the power to share and make the world more open and connected.”
In spite of having 1.9 billion monthly users which is growing day by day, the company has faced lot of issues in the past one year. Media around the Globe are discussing about the Fake news, Live broadcasting of murders. These issues pushed Zukerberg to think of Facebook’s new mission.
Zuckerberg said “For the last decade or so we’ve been focusing on making the world more open and connected. But I used to think that if we just give people a voice and help some people connect that would make the world a whole lot better by itself,” He continued “Look around and our society is still so divided. We have a responsibility to do more, not just to connect the world but to bring the world closer together.” The new Facebook mission statement is considered as a milestone for Facebook
