  • the idea is that when you give people the stability to stay connected with all

  • the people they care about an

  • you make it so they can express new things about

  • themselves are

  • in communication with other people who take care about

  • than you just open up all these new possibilities to make it to people can

  • stay connected in ways vacant before they can

  • learn about new things whether it's

  • events there happen in the world tour

  • abode organizing things or learn about new products are new movies or music

  • that they wanna listen to

  • uh... is it opens up a lot of new possibility when you can keep

  • all these connections open to that to the people you care about so

  • obviously a big part of our mission

  • connecting all these different people on the world an

  • um... one of the things that we are really proud of is that

  • now eight hundred million people around the world are using facebook

  • every month and perhaps even

  • even crazier aidid's mind blowing from from my perspective but um... more than

  • half a billion people

  • use facebook everyday

  • yeah i i think those are all just coercion the needs and until three spoke

  • there wasn't

  • agree tool for doing that but

  • i think that a lot of that

  • and building up was the last five years i think the next five years

  • is gonna be about okay now you're connected to all these people

  • now you can have a better music listening experience you can have a

  • better movie watching experience you can

  • see we're friends a reading and learn what news uh... you should read first

  • uh...

  • all these things i think they're gonna are gonna get better and

  • that's

  • that's the thing that i must accept for the next five years and

  • if we do well i think fighter shock people really get a look back

  • and say wow over the last five years all these products in all gotten better

  • because i'm not doing this stuff alone and doing it with my friends

  • that social media's role as maybe

  • overblown in that

  • and the way that i think about is that

  • if people want change

  • they will find a way to get that change right so

  • whatever technology they may or may not have used

  • was neither a necessary nor sufficient case for forgetting to the outcome of a

  • got to

  • but having people who want to change what so

  • i i hope that

  • uh... face book and

  • other internet technologies

  • were able to tell people just like we we hope that they help them communicate

  • organized whatever they want to a personal day but you know that i don't i

  • don't pretend that in a face book didn't exist that fits the swim impossible of

  • course it

  • by literally

  • coated face book in my dorm from launch it from a dorm room

  • uh... original server for eighty five dollars a month and i find it by putting

  • and outside and we find ever since but putting ads on the side laid right then

  • but literally just starting small and growing it

  • so i think you need two things one is

  • the ability to have engineers rat ban

  • and educate

  • engineers who can just try out their own ideas that and the second is the ability

  • to try out their own ideas right in

  • and the freedom to do that an the u_s_ i think

  • historically has been extremely good at both we've led in education

  • and we've led in and freedom in supporting people trying risky things

  • uh... we have this culture where

  • we place a

  • a really big premium on moving quickly

  • one of the big here is that i had about dot

  • all technology companies and probably all companies

  • to slow down dramatically as they grow

  • but if we can focus at every step along the way and moving quicker

  • then you know maybe when where

  • whom were around twenty five hundred earth three thousand people now

  • you may be we we moved as quickly as

  • your company that only has five hundred people right because we've invested so

  • much in

  • in building up e infrastructure and tools wilson culture that tells people

  • take risks in try things out and

  • i think that that ability to uh... to build stuff quicker

  • uh... will be a big advantage for us and will help us build better products of a

  • long term

  • we really are focused

  • on users first and for the long term right we believe that if we

  • though the product where people can connect and to express all the things

  • that they want about themselves

  • that over the very long-term will

  • will have a lot of people

  • doing that because that's a course human thing where people want to do that

  • it'll be very active in

  • will have opportunities to sell advertising and do all these things

  • build agree business but none of that is the is the leading thing that were

  • pushing for

  • or pushing for is that his mission we think that if we succeed or not they

  • want to build a great business

  • if tom

  • icelanders the score part of people

  • within one or two sparse things about themselves so the question isn't what do

  • we want to know about people it's

  • what do people want to tell about themselves

  • one of the the the court things that first of all of this is that

  • i think that

  • proved this point still the vast majority of people

  • don't want to share everything

  • joins washer anything went with with everyone publicly

  • if you give people tools that they can share with

  • just their friends or

  • just one group of friends people

  • due to learning process to where

  • when when social networks were first ramping up on the web

  • some people shared few things to probably but i think that

  • that's park the reason why i think this because groan as i think they spoke

  • largely existed

  • after that difference during the my space is a very of

  • the social web

  • at a point where people were already sophisticated enough to real estate you

  • know i wanna share different things with different people

  • of any use these parts the controls the feast because given me that this was

  • really the first company

  • but his biggest bilbies controls

  • so that you can share things with chester friends or can

  • sure vacation photos from my family deficient just family if i want her i

  • can do all these stupid things and i think that's one big enablers the real

  • question

  • for me is

  • two people

  • have the tools that they needed

  • in order to make those decisions well ban

  • i think that

  • it's actually really important that face book continually

  • makes it easier and easier to make those decisions because the demographics of

  • people who are using face book are changing as well try we started off with

  • these people in college right for you

  • use computers every single day

  • and now

  • units were up to

  • eight hundred million plus users

  • we have people using this site

  • who it's one of the only things that they do on a computer and maybe they're

  • not

  • computer savvy redder they don't

  • have they don't spend a lot of time trying to figure out

  • approxi control so what we've done

  • in the last year's we made it so anytime you go to share anything

  • the president roles now right there and it says

  • exactly here to share with

  • uh... if if you're gonna be shown publicly there's a little globin it says

  • the word public in

  • between we share with friends there's

  • this icon of the few people in it in says the worst friends you can just

  • click and you can change that really easily every time you post anything

  • back we're getting started seven years ago i don't know if that was necessary

  • because

  • college students and early adopter tech folks

  • just have this intuitive understanding of how the service worked but now

  • i think that

  • the boundaries it's getting

  • more and more important to be increasingly clear and give people those

  • controls

  • enom that's or trying to do and i don't think we're the and i think we're gonna

  • need to keep on making it easier and easier but that's our mission right and

  • we we have to do that because

  • not if people

  • feel like they don't have control over how they're sharing things then

  • then were failing and we're making it so they can share a lot of stuff that they

  • want to

  • and we're trying to build products for everyone in the world

  • you don't want to get isolated to do that

  • we have a very open culture at the company where

  • we foster a lot of interaction between

  • not just me and people but between everyone else and it's an it's an open

  • floorplan people have these desks where

  • no one really has an office uh... niver room where andy with people but it has

  • all class of everyone can see insurance see what's going on

  • how much think i think that

  • elections really connected to the mission of the company

  • i think that more

  • flow of information you go to stay connected to more people

  • makes people more effective this people uh... man

  • and that's true

  • socially it makes you have more fun credited it feels better to be more

  • connected to it all these people you have a richer life

  • how something in terms of during work

  • and terms of learning and evolving as a person

  • you just grow more when you get more people's perspectives and when you're

  • when you're more connected have more of a flow for people so

  • hello i think that that's really good i mean we we are really try to lift the

  • mission of the company

  • antibody that for the company

  • and keep everything else in my life extremely except

  • inability thinkin in some ways is more is more competitive and certainly is

  • is trying to build

  • their own little version of placement but um...

  • you know when when i look at amazon apple

  • and i see companies who were extremely aligned us britannia

  • uh... and

  • we have a lot of conversations with people at both companies

  • i'm just trying to

  • figure out ways that we can do more together and there's just a lot of

  • perception there and i mean i can't think of an apple product renowned zon

  • product if if apple or google wants

  • to build a product

  • uh... they typically go build

  • bratwurst

  • if face book wants to make it so that

  • you know we were culpa rethink the way the people listen to music or watch

  • movies

  • when we do we build a platform on top of which people cannot can act

  • and we enable

  • all these different companies dozens of companies to plug and i'm companies that

  • are big companies computer for small companies things they don't even exist

  • buying a company or sony company is necessarily a good or bad thing

  • actions of the key thing we need to realize is that

  • when you go through

  • a transaction like that

  • what you are changes

  • uh... if you're now owned by someone else

  • your goals are going to

  • your quickly or over time become their goals right so they're actually

  • but a lot of compelling reasons why someone would sell a company

  • and why would advance their mission

  • i'm i think for for example you chip might have been a good uh...

  • edited version of this artwork i mean they had this huge expanses in google

  • fun division has grown and that's that's a different i think there are really

  • good product

  • um... maybe it's it's hard to tell blending along the acquisitions that we

  • make it face book

  • you we we look it great entrepreneurs other were building things

  • and often

  • the acquisitions are given to him

  • to really by their compare what they're doing it's to get

  • the really told to keep you out there trying to build something cool and so

  • you know

  • if you join face book you could work on this completely different problem isn't

  • this a more important problem

  • for the people who answer the question yesterday joining aom

  • and also we've had much success so far

  • in all of my

  • friends who

  • you have younger siblings were going to college or high school

  • unlike number one piece of my sister schindler the program and i think that

  • in the future all kinds of jobs are not even just read engineering jobs but all
