How Facebook's Mark Zuckerberg Lost $4 Billion with One Post

How Facebook's Mark Zuckerberg Lost $4 Billion with One Post

"By making these changes, I expect the time people spend on Facebook and some measures of engagement will go down", said Zuckerberg in the post.

Zuckerberg has also resolved to do something about it.

Facebook Founder and CEO Mark Zuckerberg speaks on stage during the annual Facebook F8 developers conference in San Jose, California, U.S., April 18, 2017. The question is whether he'll actually follow through, or if his grand plan will be just another marketing exercise.

Meanwhile, investors and advertisers are likely to be anxious by a line in Zuckerberg's Facebook post announcing the changes.

"No matter how well we do on Facebook and how great our videos are, making high-quality videos itself does not bring us any profit", said Cho.

Zuckerberg says that according to research, people use social media to stay in touch with people they care about, and that can have a positive impact on their overall well-being. As investigative journalist Kashmir Hill revealed, Facebook's aggressive data-mining tactics have led to many unsettling situations.

The changes come after a tough year for Facebook that included congressional hearings on how Russian Federation used it to influence the 2016 USA elections.

Shares of Facebook slid more than 5 percent to $177.31 in premarket trading Friday after the change was unveiled. Likewise, the pet-obsessed like to post photos of their puppies and kitties.

"We're gonna sell more ads", said Ryan Kelly, CEO of Pear Analytics. You can also get notifications from Facebook when we post something, and you can find instruction on how to do that here.

Zuckerberg has at least stopped saying it's "crazy" to think none of this propaganda had any influence. "People are frustrated with the Russian Federation revelations and fake news and have taken it into their own hands and stopped engaging". "But those are the people who want to see ads". They want to believe what they're doing is good.

Mark Zuckerberg's personal goal for 2018?

New changes announced by Facebook to elevate content on its users' news feed that is shared by friends and family over that shared by news publishers could wind up exacerbating Facebook's fake news problem. And surely Facebook technology has reached the point where users should be able to personalized their News Feed and decide for themselves whether the people-centric vi. brand-inclusive content would be right for them.

Even better, he could appoint two such people-a liberal and a conservative-to help deflect accusations of political bias. Instead of seeing a selection of posts curated by a Facebook programmer, users could select for themselves exactly what they want to see. "People are fed up with the click-bait".

Facebook's shift toward promoting conversation plays to the HuffPost's existing focus, Lau said, adding that the media outlet has always tried to foster discussion among its readers.

"Facebook will continue to grow its massive global installed base in our opinion while importantly monetizing users especially on the Instagram side of the house, which remains the "core 1-2 punch" that underlies our bullish thesis on the name", Ives said in a note released late Thursday.
