Mark Zuckerberg has announced his personal challenge for 2019, this years challenge is to host a series of public discussion about the future of technology in society.
He plans to make all of these discussions public either on Facebook or Instagram, you can see what he had to say below.
My challenge for 2019 is to host a series of public discussions about the future of technology in society — the opportunities, the challenges, the hopes, and the anxieties. Every few weeks I’ll talk with leaders, experts, and people in our community from different fields and I’ll try different formats to keep it interesting. These will all be public, either on my Facebook or Instagram pages or on other media.
This will be intellectually interesting, but there’s a personal challenge for me here too. I’m an engineer, and I used to just build out my ideas and hope they’d mostly speak for themselves. But given the importance of what we do, that doesn’t cut it anymore. So I’m going to put myself out there more than I’ve been comfortable with and engage more in some of these debates about the future, the tradeoffs we face, and where we want to go.
It will be interesting to see if this new challenge will help Zuckerberg improve the image people have of Facebook, after all the data scandals in 2018, we suspect it could be hard work for him.
