10 ani de Facebook

Azi se implinesc 10 ani de Facebook. Cu aceasta ocazie, Mark Zuckerberg a postat un mesaj pe contul sau de Facebook in care vorbeste despre primii 10 ani si despre miza urmatorilor 10 – sa conectreze si celelalte 2 treimi ale populatiei.

Am citit un mesaj interesant, postat de un om care a ajuns intr-o pozitie de putere pe aceasta planeta.

Si totusi, cred ca este un mesaj din care putem invata foarte multe.

Stiu, multi il injura, multi critica Facebook-ul, multi inteleg cum pot si vor utilitatea acestui serviciu, cati oameni… atatea pareri.

Eu doar ma intreb – daca nu exista Facebook cum as fi putut cunoaste atatia oameni?

Cum as fi putut interactiona cu ei zi de zi? Cum as fi putut sa-mi fac cunoscute ideile, cum as fi putut pune la cale aceste dezbateri de idei zilnice care se invart in jurul ideilor postate aici pe blog?

Cum as fi putut invata atat de multe lucruri despre oameni? Sa citesti nu e suficient… interactiunea directa – fie ea si online – completeaza perfect informatia din carti.

Cum as fi putut sa aflu atat de multe lucruri, atat de repede?

Lasati superficialitatea, lasati discutiile despre substanta… incercati sa priviti partea buna a ceea ce inseamna Facebook – o inventie extraordinara din punctul meu de vedere.

Zuckerberg nu a facut altceva decat sa ofere o platforma, oamenii sunt cei care au populat-o dupa bunul plac.

Eu nu am de ce sa injur aceasta retea de socializare – pentru mine este foarte utila – sunt un animal social si deci socializez, impart si caut informatie, iar Facebook e numai bun pentru asta. Fara Facebook, cu siguranta nu v-as fi cunoscut sau ar fi fost mult mai greu.

Iata si mesajul postat de Mark Zuckerberg – mi se pare interesant:

“It’s been an amazing journey so far, and I’m so grateful to be a part of it. It’s rare to be able to touch so many people’s lives, and I try to remind myself to make the most of every day and have the biggest impact I can.

People often ask if I always knew that Facebook would become what it is today. No way.

I remember getting pizza with my friends one night in college shortly after opening Facebook. I told them I was excited to help connect our school community, but one day someone needed to connect the whole world.

I always thought this was important — giving people the power to share and stay connected, empowering people to build their own communities themselves.

When I reflect on the last 10 years, one question I ask myself is: why were we the ones to build this? We were just students. We had way fewer resources than big companies. If they had focused on this problem, they could have done it.

The only answer I can think of is: we just cared more.

While some doubted that connecting the world was actually important, we were building. While others doubted that this would be sustainable, you were forming lasting connections.

We just cared more about connecting the world than anyone else. And we still do today.

That’s why I’m even more excited about the next ten years than the last. 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.

Today, only one-third of the world’s population has access to the internet. In the next decade, we have the opportunity and the responsibility to connect the other two-thirds.

Today, social networks are mostly about sharing moments. In the next decade, they’ll also 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.

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.

Thank you for letting me be a part of this journey.”
