Facebook Can’t Fix What It Won’t Admit To

In June 2017, Mark Zuckerberg changed Facebook’s mission. Speaking at the company’s first Community Summit in Chicago, he explained that the best part of Facebook is its “meaningful groups,” those that address a user’s passions or needs and connect them with others who share those interests. At the time, there were 100 million people in meaningful groups; he wanted to grow it to a billion. Zuckerberg believed this so much that he changed Facebook’s core goal from “connecting the world” to “giving people the power to build community and bring the world closer together.” In a post explaining this, he wrote, “Communities give us that sense that we are part of something greater than ourselves, that we are not alone, and that we have something better ahead to work for.”
