Facebook's new mission statement is more than a philosophy—it's a goal.

“Look around and our society is still so divided. We have a responsibility to do more, not just to connect the world but to bring the world closer together.”—Mark Zuckerberg

It is always inspiring to me when companies (especially hugely influential ones like Facebook) look at their business through the lens of service and not just profit. I truly believe visionary leaders have the ability to use business to help change the world for the better. Nice work Mark Z !!! I love your new mission statement and am rooting for you to reach your goal!  “Give people the power to build community and bring the world closer together.”  “For the last decade or so we’ve been focusing on making the world more open and connected. But I used to think that if we just give people a voice and help some people connect that that would make the world a whole lot better by itself,” Zuckerberg admits. “Look around and our society is still so divided. We have a responsibility to do more, not just to connect the world but to bring the world closer together.”  Catalyzed by the fake news scandals surrounding the U.S. presidential election, Zuckerberg first laid the groundwork with his  6,000-word community letter  on  “Building Community,”  which focused on what Facebook could do to help.   “We want to help 1 billion people join meaningful communities. If we can do this it will not only reverse the whole decline in community membership we’ve seen around the world… but it will also strengthen our social fabric and bring the world closer together.”  TO READ THE COMPLETE ARTICLE GO TO:   https://techcrunch.com/2017/06/22/bring-the-world-closer-together/
