Mark Zuckerberg quotes on social media

 

In general, we’re a social network. I prefer that because I think it is focused on the people part of it – as opposed to some people call it social media, which I think focuses more on the content. ~Mark Zuckerberg tweet

 

Mark Zuckerberg quotes on AI

 

We’re at a point now where we’ve built AI tools to detect when terrorists are trying to spread content, and 99 percent of the terrorist content that we take down, our systems flag before any human sees them or flags them for us. ~Mark Zuckerberg tweet

 

Now the playbook is we build AI tools to go find these fake accounts, find coordinated networks of inauthentic activity, and take them down; we make it much harder for anyone to advertise in ways that they shouldn’t be. ~Mark Zuckerberg tweet

 

 

Mark Zuckerberg quotes on business, money

 

I think a simple rule of business is, if you do the things that are easier first, then you can actually make a lot of progress. ~Mark Zuckerberg tweet

 

We are a mission-driven company. In order to do this, we have to build a great team. And in order to do that, you need people to know they can make a bunch of money. So we need a business model to make a lot of money. ~Mark Zuckerberg tweet

I started the site when I was 19. I didn’t know much about business back then. ~Mark Zuckerberg tweet

 

When most people ask about a business growing, what they really mean is growing revenue, not just growing the number of people using a service. Traditional businesses would view people using your service that you don’t make money from as a cost. ~Mark Zuckerberg tweet

 

A frustration I have is that a lot of people increasingly seem to equate an advertising business model with somehow being out of alignment with your customers. I think it’s the most ridiculous concept. ~Mark Zuckerberg tweet

 

Building a mission and building a business go hand in hand. The primary thing that excites me is the mission. But we have always had a healthy understanding that we need to do both. ~Mark Zuckerberg tweet

 

Mark Zuckerberg quotes on coding

 

If we’re trying to build a world-class News Feed and a world-class messaging product and a world-class search product and a world-class ad system, and invent virtual reality and build drones, I can’t write every line of code. I can’t write any lines of code. ~Mark Zuckerberg tweet

 

We have a rule that if you check in code, you have to maintain it. So I mostly code on the side. I don’t check in code anymore. ~Mark Zuckerberg tweet

 

Mark Zuckerberg quotes on risk

 

The biggest risk is not taking any risk… In a world that changing really quickly, the only strategy that is guaranteed to fail is not taking risks. ~Mark Zuckerberg tweet

 

Mark Zuckerberg quotes about college

 

All of my friends who have younger siblings who are going to college or high school – my number one piece of advice is: You should learn how to program. ~Mark Zuckerberg tweet

 

When I was in college I did a lot of stupid things and I don’t want to make an excuse for that. Some of the things that people accuse me of are true, some of them aren’t. There are pranks, IMs. ~Mark Zuckerberg tweet

 

There’s a level of service that we could provide when we’re just at Harvard that we can’t provide for all of the colleges, and there’s a level of service that we can provide when we’re a college network that we wouldn’t be able to provide if we went to other types of things. ~Mark Zuckerberg tweet

 

Mark Zuckerberg quotes about life

 

In terms of doing work and in terms of learning and evolving as a person, you just grow more when you get more people’s perspectives… I really try and live the mission of the company and… keep everything else in my life extremely simple. ~Mark Zuckerberg tweet

 

People don’t care about what someone says about you in a movie – or even what you say, right? They care about what you build. And if you can make something that makes people’s life better, then that’s something that’s really good. ~Mark Zuckerberg tweet

 

I think that more flow of information, the ability to stay connected to more people makes people more effective as people. And I mean, that’s true socially. It makes you have more fun, right. It feels better to be more connected to all these people. You have a richer life. ~Mark Zuckerberg tweet

Mark Zuckerberg quotes about love

 

Really, who you are is defined by the people who you know – not even the people that you know, but the people you spend time with and the people that you love and the people that you work with. I guess we show your friends in your profile, but that’s kind of different from the information you put in your profile. ~Mark Zuckerberg tweet

Mark Zuckerberg quotes about Facebook

 

Facebook was not originally created to be a company. It was built to accomplish a social mission – to make the world more open and connected. ~Mark Zuckerberg tweet

 

Facebook is in a very different place than Apple, Google, Amazon, Samsung, and Microsoft. We are trying to build a community. ~Mark Zuckerberg tweet

When I started Facebook from my dorm room in 2004, the idea that my roommates and I talked about all the time was a world that was more open. ~Mark Zuckerberg tweet

What really motivates people at Facebook is building stuff that they’re proud of. ~Mark Zuckerberg tweet

 

Video is growing very quickly on Facebook. A lot of people compare that to YouTube. I think that kind of makes sense. YouTube isn’t the only video service, but I think it’s the biggest, and it probably makes more sense to compare Facebook video to YouTube rather than Netflix because that’s a completely different kind of content. ~Mark Zuckerberg tweet

 

We talk about this concept of openness and transparency as the high-level ideal that we’re moving towards at Facebook. The way that we get there is by empowering people to share and connect. The combination of those two things leads the world to become more open. ~Mark Zuckerberg tweet

 

Working with a lot of people at the same time is a task. I really like making stuff and getting stuff done. One of the things I really liked about Facebook was that I could always move so quickly. I wrote the original application in, like, nine days at the end of January. ~Mark Zuckerberg tweet

 

Facebook is uniquely positioned to answer questions that people have, like, what sushi restaurants have my friends gone to in New York lately and liked? These are queries you could potentially do with Facebook that you couldn’t do with anything else, we just have to do it. ~Mark Zuckerberg tweet

 

This is our commitment to users and the people who use our service, is that Facebook’s a free service. It’s free now. It will always be free. We make money through having advertisements and things like that.
We help Chinese companies grow their customers abroad. They use Facebook ads to find more customers. For example, Lenovo used Facebook ads to sell its new phone. In China, I also see economic growth. We admire it. ~Mark Zuckerberg tweet

 

I updated my grilling app, iGrill, today and it now has Facebook integration that lets you see what other people are grilling right now around the world. Awesome. ~Mark Zuckerberg tweet

 

My goal was never to make Facebook cool. I am not a cool person. ~Mark Zuckerberg tweet

 

Advertising works most effectively when it’s in line with what people are already trying to do. And people are trying to communicate in a certain way on Facebook – they share information with their friends, they learn about what their friends are doing – so there’s really a whole new opportunity for a new type of advertising model within that. ~Mark Zuckerberg tweet

 

When Facebook was getting started, nothing used real identity – everything was anonymous or pseudonymous – and I thought that real identity should play a bigger part than it did. ~Mark Zuckerberg tweet

 

No one has done a study on this, as far as I can tell, but I think Facebook might be the first place where a large number of people have come out. We didn’t create that – society was generally ready for that. I think this is just part of the general trend that we talked about, about society being more open, and I think that’s good. ~Mark Zuckerberg tweet

 

I literally coded Facebook in my dorm room and launched it from my dorm room. I rented a server for $85 a month, and I funded it by putting an ad on the side, and we’ve funded ever since by putting ads on the side. ~Mark Zuckerberg tweet

 

Hackathons are these things where just all of the Facebook engineers get together and stay up all night building things. And, I mean, usually at these hackathons, I code too, just alongside everyone. ~Mark Zuckerberg tweet

 

One of my big regrets is that Facebook hasn’t had a major chance to shape the mobile operating system ecosystem. ~Mark Zuckerberg tweet

 

It’s not that every single thing that happens on Facebook is gonna be good. This is humanity. People use tools for good and bad, but I think that we have a clear responsibility to make sure that the good is amplified and to do everything we can to mitigate the bad. ~Mark Zuckerberg tweet

 

Facebook is really about communicating and telling stories… We think that people can really help spread awareness of organ donation and that they want to participate in this to their friends. And that can be a big part of helping solve the crisis that’s out there. ~Mark Zuckerberg tweet

 

I mean, we’ve built a lot of products that we think are good, and will help people share photos and share videos and write messages to each other. But it’s really all about how people are spreading Facebook around the world in all these different countries. And that’s what’s so amazing about the scale that it’s at today. ~Mark Zuckerberg tweet

 

I just think people have a lot of fiction. But, you know, I mean, the real story of Facebook is just that we’ve worked so hard for all this time. I mean, the real story is actually probably pretty boring, right? I mean, we just sat at our computers for six years and coded. ~Mark Zuckerberg tweet

 

The real question for me is, do people have the tools that they need in order to make those decisions well? And I think that it’s actually really important that Facebook continually makes it easier and easier to make those decisions… If people feel like they don’t have control over how they’re sharing things, then we’re failing them. ~Mark Zuckerberg tweet

 

People at Facebook are fairly used to the press being nice to us or not nice to us. ~Mark Zuckerberg tweet

For the first time we’re allowing developers who don’t work at Facebook to develop applications just as if they were. That’s a big deal because it means that all developers have a new way of doing business if they choose to take advantage of it. There are whole companies that are forming whose only product is a Facebook Platform application. ~Mark Zuckerberg tweet

 

Facebook is inherently viral. There are lots of sites that include a contact importer, and for lots of them it doesn’t really make sense. For Facebook it fits so well. It wasn’t until a few years in that we started building some tools that made it easier to import friends to the site. That was a huge thing that spiked growth. ~Mark Zuckerberg tweet

 

We want Facebook to be one of the best places people can go to learn how to build stuff. If you want to build a company, nothing better than jumping in and trying to build one. But Facebook is also great for entrepreneurs/hackers. If people want to come for a few years and move on and build something great, that’s something we’re proud of. ~Mark Zuckerberg tweet

 

I hope that Facebook and other Internet technologies were able to help people, just like we hope that we help them communicate and organize and do whatever they want to every single day, but I don’t pretend that if Facebook didn’t exist, that this wouldn’t even be possible. Of course, it would have. ~Mark Zuckerberg tweet

 

On engagement, we’re already seeing that mobile users are more likely to be daily active users than desktop users. They’re more likely to use Facebook six or seven days of the week. ~Mark Zuckerberg tweet

 

Look at the way celebrities and politicians are using Facebook already. When Ashton Kutcher posts a video, he gets hundreds of pieces of feedback. Maybe he doesn’t have time to read them all or respond to them all, but he’s getting good feedback and getting a good sense of how people are thinking about that and maybe can respond to some of it. ~Mark Zuckerberg tweet

 

There are a few other things that I built when I was at Harvard that were kind of smaller versions of Facebook. One such program was this program called Match. People could enter the different courses that they were taking, and see what other courses would be correlated with the courses they are taking. ~Mark Zuckerberg tweet

 

The main Facebook usage is so big. About 20 percent of the time people spend on their phone is on Facebook. ~Mark Zuckerberg tweet

 

One of the things that we’re trying to do with Creative Labs and all our experiences is explore things that aren’t all tied to Facebook identity. Some things will be, but not everything will have to be, because there are some sets of experiences that are just better with other identities. ~Mark Zuckerberg tweet

 

People love photos. Photos originally weren’t that big a part of the idea for Facebook, but we just found that people really like them, so we built out this functionality. ~Mark Zuckerberg tweet

 

Facebook and Instagram are both really popular with teens, both in the U.S. and globally across the world. I think what you’re starting to see is that there are all these different ways that people want to share and communicate. ~Mark Zuckerberg tweet

 

It’s, like, even in journeys like Facebook, we’ve had some very serious ups and downs. ~Mark Zuckerberg tweet

 

I actually don’t read most of the coverage about Facebook. I try to learn from getting input from people who use our services directly more than from pundits. ~Mark Zuckerberg tweet

 

We started off as this platform inside Facebook; and we were pretty clear from the beginning that that wasn’t where it was going to end up. A lot of people saw it and asked, ‘Why is Facebook trying to get all these applications inside Facebook when the web is clearly the platform?’ And we actually agreed with that. ~Mark Zuckerberg tweet

 

I think Facebook is an online directory for colleges… If I want to get information about you, I just go to TheFacebook, type in your name, and it hopefully pulls up all the information I’d care to know about you. ~Mark Zuckerberg tweet

 

A lot of times, I run a thought experiment: ‘If I were not at Facebook, what would I be doing to make the world more open?’ ~Mark Zuckerberg tweet

Mark Zuckerberg quotes about Happy

I always kind of see how I want things to be better, and I’m generally not happy with how things are or the level of service that we’re providing for people or the quality of the teams that we built. But if you look at this objectively, we’re doing so well on so many of these things. I think it’s important to have gratitude for that.~Mark Zuckerberg tweet

Mark Zuckerberg quotes about family

 

I think what we’ve found is that when you can use products with your friends and your family and the people you care about, they tend to be more engaging. I think that we’re really going to see this huge shift where a lot of industry is and products are just going to be remade to be social. ~Mark Zuckerberg tweet

 

Think about what people are doing on Facebook today. They’re keeping up with their friends and family, but they’re also building an image and identity for themselves, which in a sense is their brand.
