Previously, we have announced that Mark Zuckerberg was to host a public Q&A session through Facebook to answer the users’ questions in mind. Zuckerberg responded to a bunch of questions on Thursday, and here are some highlights for you in case you’ve missed it.
The questions were posted by the users on a special Facebook Page for this event and rated again by the very users. One of the most popular questions was of course the following: “Why did you force us to install Facebook Messenger?”
We know that you wonder, too!
Well, here is what he says: “Even though it was a short-term painful thing to ask folks to install a separate messaging app, we knew that we could never deliver the quality of experience as just a tab in the main Facebook app, and that if we really want to focus on serving this well, we needed to build a dedicated and focused experience.”
Another fun part was about the movie “Social Network”, based on Zuckerberg’s life and Facebook’s early years.
Zuckerberg: “I think the reality is that writing code and building a product and building a company actually is not a glamorous enough thing to make a movie about. So you can probably imagine a lot of the stuff they had to embellish.”
A little bit surprising, Zuckerberg claimed that Facebook is not cool and that was never the goal anyway!
Responding to a question about whether Facebook is getting boring and losing its initial charm, Zuckerberg answers: “My goal was never to make Facebook cool. I am not a cool person. Our model for Facebook has never been to try to make it exciting to use; we just want to make it useful.”
