Mark Zuckerberg Vows to Fix Facebook

Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg has vowed to “fix” Facebook, in what he described as his personal challenge for 2018.
In a post on his page on the social network, he said it was making too many errors enforcing policies and preventing misuse of its tools, BBC reported.
Social media firms have come under fire for allowing so-called fake news ahead of US and other elections to spread. Facebook in particular has been criticized for allowing Russia-linked political ads in the run-up to the 2016 US presidential vote.
Zuckerberg said he intended to focus on “important issues”, which he listed as “protecting our community from abuse and hate, defending against interference by nation states, or making sure that time spent on Facebook is time well spent”.
“We will not prevent all mistakes or abuse, but we currently make too many errors enforcing our policies and preventing misuse of our tools,” he wrote.
Facebook CEO said he would learn more by looking intensely at those issues than by doing something completely separate.
He said one of the issues he intended to tackle was the debate about centralization and decentralization. Technology had the promise of putting more power into people’s hands but many people had now lost faith in that promise and thought technology actually centralized power, he said.
Zuckerberg added that encryption and digital currencies had the power to counter this trend, and said he would explore how to use them at Facebook.
