Social media giant Facebook arranged a community Q&A session with its founder Mark Zuckerberg on Friday. The session was arranged to listen to the users' feedbacks and vision on the website's updates.
In the exclusive session, Zuckerberg, with several other chiefs belonging to the social network, mentioned that Facebook will arrange such session every week.
In the one hour stretched session, the 30-year-old entrepreneur discussed on several strategies and future trends. He mentioned that the trend is changing towards video and thus Facebook will be mostly video in the coming five years.
Responding to a question on whether the increasing popularity of photo uploads will create a huge data load, the billionaire mentioned that the company's Data Centres have it covered, but the real challenge lies behind improving the infrastructure to allow for richer contents like videos in user's feeds.
Many were invited by for the session at Menlo Park, California headquarters and people were allowed to submit their queries online, which were later addressed by Zuckerberg.
Responding to the Facebook Messenger's requirement, he said that the dedicated Messenger app has achieved a better experience than the traditional system as people gets faster response using this.
"Asking everyone in our community to install another app is a big ask. But Facebook thought it could provide a better, faster messaging product if it split off from its own app," he mentioned.
"We really believe this is a better experience," he added.
He also talked regarding several other aspects, including his opinion on the David Fincher directorial "The Social Network" (2010). He exclaimed that the movie took on many liberties in telling the story, which he found "hurtful".
"The reality is that writing code and building a product and then building a company actually is not a glamorous enough thing to make a movie about. If they were really making a movie (of my life), it would have been of me sitting at a computer, coding for two hours straight, which probably would have not been that good of a movie," Zuckerberg said.
Answering to the question whether Facebook is losing its cool, Zuckerberg said "my goal was never to make Facebook cool". Instead, he wanted to develop a helpful service that just works.
When asked why he always appears in same Tee and hoodies, he said that he wears it every day as he wants to avoid wasting time in "things that are silly or frivolous".
