Mark Zuckerberg Quotes 1403334

Founding a company is hard. Most of it isn't smooth. You'll have to make very hard decisions. You have to fire a few people. Therefore, if you don't believe in your mission, giving up is easy. The majority of founders give up. But the best founders don't give up. — Mark Zuckerberg

Mark Zuckerberg Quotes 1419028

Health is certainly extremely important, and we've done a number of things at Facebook to help improve global health and work in that area, and I am excited to do more there, too.

When we are thinking about stuff like embeds, we are not thinking about how we are competing with YouTube. We are thinking about how are we going to make it more useful for people to share stuff on Facebook. — Mark Zuckerberg

Mark Zuckerberg Quotes 1744678

When I'm introspective about the last few years I think the biggest mistake that we made, as a company, is betting too much on HTML5 as opposed to native ... because it just wasn't there. And it's not that HTML5 is bad. I'm actually, on long-term, really excited about it. One of the things that's interesting is we actually have more people on a daily basis using mobile Web Facebook than we have using our iOS or Android apps combined. So mobile Web is a big thing for us. — Mark Zuckerberg

Mark Zuckerberg Quotes 1746065

Facebook is all about information and helping people share it. — Mark Zuckerberg

Mark Zuckerberg Quotes 1774724

Mark Zuckerberg Quotes 1785849

Openness fundamentally affects a lot of the core institutions in society - the media, the economy, how people relate to the government and just their leadership. — Mark Zuckerberg

Mark Zuckerberg Quotes 1857983

In the olden times, privacy was good. Today people want to share, people are more open. — Mark Zuckerberg

Mark Zuckerberg Quotes 1905991

There have been misperceptions that we're trying to make all the information open on Facebook, and that's completely false. There are big buckets of information that we recommend that you share with only your friends privately. Then some of the more basic information, we recommend that that's visible to everyone. — Mark Zuckerberg

Mark Zuckerberg Quotes 1919532

We know that for every 1 person who get access to the Internet, one new job gets created, and one person gets lifted out of poverty. So in theory, going and connecting everyone on the Internet is a large national and even global priority. — Mark Zuckerberg

Mark Zuckerberg Quotes 1921470

Back, you know, a few generations ago, people didn't have a way to share information and express their opinions efficiently to a lot of people. But now they do. Right now, with social networks and other tools on the Internet, all of these 500 million people have a way to say what they're thinking and have their voice be heard. — Mark Zuckerberg

Mark Zuckerberg Quotes 1931490

There are different ways to do innovation. You can plant a lot of seeds, not be committed to any particular one of them, but just see what grows. And this really isn't how we've approached this. We go mission-first, then focus on the pieces we need and go deep on them and be committed to them. — Mark Zuckerberg

Mark Zuckerberg Quotes 2057338

I'm trying to make the world a more open place. — Mark Zuckerberg

Mark Zuckerberg Quotes 2076736

When you think about it, there's no way to input things into a computer. It's all ... the holes only go out, right? Like you can plug a keyboard or a mouse in but that's a trick because the computer thinks the inputs are outputs. That's a programmer trick, basically magic. The key to the future is to make holes that go in too. — Mark Zuckerberg

Mark Zuckerberg Quotes 2082411

You grow more when you get more people's perspective. — Mark Zuckerberg

Mark Zuckerberg Quotes 2108817

Mark Zuckerberg Quotes 2126627

Our goal is to make it so there's as little friction as possible to having a social experience. — Mark Zuckerberg

Mark Zuckerberg Quotes 2129941

People wait until late in their career to give back. But why wait when there is so much to be done? — Mark Zuckerberg

Mark Zuckerberg Quotes 2151615

There are good examples of companies - Coca-Cola is one - that invested before there was a huge market in countries, and I think that ended up playing out to their benefit for decades to come. — Mark Zuckerberg

Mark Zuckerberg Quotes 2217863

We used to write this down by saying, 'move fast and break things.' And the idea was, unless you are breaking some stuff you are not moving fast enough. I think there's probably something in that for other entrepreneurs to learn which is that making mistakes is okay. At the end of the day, the goal of building something is to build something, not to not make mistakes. — Mark Zuckerberg

Mark Zuckerberg Quotes 2222030

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
