Does Facebook care?

Mark Zuckerberg says Facebook succeeded because “we just cared more.”

For me, it begs the question of what Facebook cared more about?

I am wondering if Facebook is about to change dance partners and take the floor with a different girl to the dance? New functions such as creating a movie about your first decade of posts on Facebook is near brilliance, but the ads, spam and privacy exposure are beginning to take its toll.
