Foreseeing virtual reality (VR) as a future computing platform, Mark Zuckerberg-led Facebook has decided to make a multi-billion investment in VR over the next decade.
Mr. Zuckerberg, chief executive of the popular social-networking platform, recently announced that the company has decided to invest $3 billion in VR to bring virtual reality to the masses.
Facebook founder & CEO Mark Zuckerberg and his wife Dr. Priscilla Chan, who have pledged to put their huge wealth toward philanthropic causes, have hired a top political operative to build political muscle for their philanthropic work.
In 2015, Zuckerberg and his wife set up the Chan Zuckerberg Initiative, a limited liability company to carry out charitable efforts. Now, they have hired David Plouffe, who managed President Barack Obama's 2008 presidential campaign, as president of policy and advocacy for the non-profit.
Excited to explore more of the United States, Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg has decided to visit and meet as many people as he can across the nation by the end of 2017.
In a post published on Tuesday, Zuckerberg wrote that he would travel to nearly thirty states by year's end to know how people are living, working and what they are thinking about the future.
Social network Facebook has revealed in a recent announcement that it is rolling out a new vote planning feature, in order to make it easier for its users to cast their vote in the US presidential election next month. The new feature essentially familiarizes Facebook with who and what will be on their ballot.
In a Friday announcement, social network Facebook said that it is launching a new standalone app --- the 'Events from Facebook' discovery and calendar app.
The new 'Events' app harnesses some capabilities of Facebook's Events feature, to give users the ability to browse and search for ongoing events. Moreover, since the app is also capable of pulling calendars from the users' phones, all the plans of the users show up in one place; thereby enabling the users to know when they are free.
In a move which will apparently enable Facebook to win over young users, the social network is rolling out a standalone iOS app - called 'Lifestage' - for sharing photos and videos.
The new Lifestage app is basically aimed at Facebook users aged 21 years and younger. The app allows the users to post photos and videos, and also to express their likes/dislikes, emotions, and friendships. The app opens directly to a camera screen, which is a clear indication of its focus on photos and videos.
