Does Facebook care? Mark Zuckerberg says it does.

Even if Facebook does care, is that the reason for its success?

Mark Zuckerberg says his Facebook success is because “we just cared more.”

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

“Facebook cared about Facebook success first and foremost, like any company. But successful brands ensure their success by being all about their prospects and customers and not all about themselves.”

 

Mark ZuckerbergNow don’t take this as a criticism. Facebook cared about Facebook success first and foremost, like any company. But successful brands ensure their success by being all about their prospects and customers and not all about themselves.

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.

Hit more home runs like the “make a movie” thing may make us forget about all that because it’s about us, the user. But the bar is getting higher and the game is getting tougher.
