“In the next decade, we have the opportunity and the responsibility to connect the other two-thirds of the world…”
Founder of Multi-media social interaction platform – Facebook, Mark Zuckerberg, said he is more excited about the next ten years than the last as they now have the resources to help people across the world solve bigger problems.
“The first ten years were about bootstrapping this network. Now we have the resources to help people across the world solve even bigger and more important problems.” he wrote on his Facebook timeline, to celebrate Facebook’s 10th anniversary yesterday.
“In the next decade, we have the opportunity and the responsibility to connect the other two-thirds of the world and help you answer questions and solve complex problems.
Today, we have only a few ways to share our experiences. In the next decade, technology will enable us to create many more ways to capture and communicate new kinds of experiences.” Zuckerberg said.
The Social Networking site has also introduced another feature in commemorating “Friends Day.”
This year, the company is allowing users to commemorate the day by singling out friends and giving each friend a “Friend Award” with a variety of descriptive terms such as “Always Has My Back,” “Big-Hearted”, “Bestie,” and more.
The feature allows you to select a friend, their picture, and a template with a variety of descriptive options. The final result features the image with a bit of animation that you can post to your wall. Users can then go back and create others for other friends.
In addition to the “Friend Awards,” the company also released three friend-themed filters for its Camera feature, as well as a series of short videos that “highlight five remarkable friendships from around the world.”
“It’s been amazing to see how all of you have used our tools to build a real community. You’ve shared the happy moments and the painful ones. You’ve started new families, and kept spread out families connected. You’ve created new services and built small businesses. You’ve helped each other in so many ways.
I’m so grateful to be able to help build these tools for you. I feel a deep responsibility to make the most of my time here and serve you the best I can.” Zuckerberg revealed.
