The founder of Facebook wants to create a social infrastructure for the development of the global community.
Mark Zuckerberg intends to engage in the development of social infrastructure for the formation of a global community based on he founded the social network Facebook. “Now around the world there are people who are left behind the globalization movement, advocating for a departure from global relations,” stated the founder of Facebook in his address to the users.
Zuckerberg wants to transition from social networks for friends and family to the development of global social infrastructure. “In times such as now, the most important thing we in the Facebook can do is to create a social infrastructure to give people the opportunity to build a global community that works for all of us,” said Zuckerberg.
He singled out five main directions – the development of mutual support, security, awareness, civic engagement and involvement of representatives of different cultures and beliefs.
In particular, speaking about the dissemination of information, Zuckerberg expressed his concern about the “bubble of filters” (personalize the search and display the information in which the user sees only what he likes and fits his views. – Ed.) and spreading fake news.
According to Zuckerberg, the problem is the fact that sensational and simple messages spread faster than the others. “In the worst case, there is a simplification of important topics and their hyperbole to extremes”, – said the head of the social network. To limit the spread of screaming headlines, Facebook introduces the algorithms for the account, read the user article at the link before to share it. This circumstance affects the display of such materials in the news feed of users.
In addition, Zuckerberg said that Facebook has developed an artificial intelligence that needs to identify prohibited content. This technology will partially applied in 2017.
