Mark Zuckerberg's Personal Challenge For 2018 Is Doing His Job

Mark Zuckerberg reveals his New Year's Resolution and it doesn't involve killing animals

Mark Zuckerberg reveals his New Year's Resolution and it doesn't involve killing animals

Mark Zuckerberg today posted his annual New Year's resolution post on Facebook, and this time he's using it to address the elephant in the room - namely, Facebook's bad publicity in 2017.

Mark Zuckerberg wants you to know that he's not just the guy running a social network that knows way too much about you and has an unbridled misinformation problem.

ESPN officially parts ways with Donovan McNabb, amid sexual harassment allegations
An amended complaint, which was first reported by Bloomberg, was filed in December and detailed the specific acts of harassment. She alleges when she once slapped his hand away he aggressively told her never to push his hand away again.

Zuckerberg then vowed to do a better job in enforcing Facebook's policies in the new year saying, "My personal challenge for 2018 is to focus on fixing these important issues". He said Facebook makes "too many errors" and admitted that people have "lost faith" in technology as it becomes increasingly dominated by a handful of giant companies.

Zuckerberg acknowledged that many people's opinion on the power of technology had changed. "(The first four words of Facebook's mission have always been "give people the power".) Back in the 1990s and 2000s, most people believed technology would be a decentralizing force".

The final bid at the silent auction at Sean Penn's annual gala for Haiti was United States dollars 160,000. And that's when Pitt raised his own bid to $120,000.

As a counterpoint to the public perception that technology has risen up to centralize power, the social media mogul asserts that decentralized systems like cryptocurrencies "take power from centralized systems and put it back people's hands".

Zuckerberg also points out looming questions in the field - like whether technology is a decentralizing or centralizing force, and the positive and negative aspects of trendy technology such as encryption and cryptocurrency - and says he's interested in going deeper and studying these issues. "I'm looking forward to bringing groups of experts together to discuss and help work through these topics", he wrote.

Zuckerberg is not the only Facebook executive expressing interest in the space.
