Mark Zuckerberg

+ 200 Mobile is a lot closer to TV than it is to desktop. Mark Zuckerberg


+ 256 On engagement, we're already seeing that mobile users are more likely to be daily active users than desktop users. They're more likely to use Facebook six or seven days of the week. Mark Zuckerberg


+ 293 By giving people the power to share, we're making the world more transparent. Mark Zuckerberg


+ 244 The biggest risk is not taking any risk... In a world that changing really quickly, the only strategy that is guaranteed to fail is not taking risks. Mark Zuckerberg


+ 279 I just think people have a lot of fiction. But, you know, I mean, the real story of Facebook is just that we've worked so hard for all this time. I mean, the real story is actually probably pretty boring, right? I mean, we just sat at our computers for six years and coded. Mark Zuckerberg


+ 213 The thing that we are trying to do at facebook, is just help people connect and communicate more efficiently. Mark Zuckerberg


+ 245 I think a simple rule of business is, if you do the things that are easier first, then you can actually make a lot of progress. Mark Zuckerberg


+ 247 Think about what people are doing on Facebook today. They're keeping up with their friends and family, but they're also building an image and identity for themselves, which in a sense is their brand. They're connecting with the audience that they want to connect to. It's almost a disadvantage if you're not on it now. Mark Zuckerberg


+ 309 I mean, we've built a lot of products that we think are good, and will help people share photos and share videos and write messages to each other. But it's really all about how people are spreading Facebook around the world in all these different countries. And that's what's so amazing about the scale that it's at today. Mark Zuckerberg


+ 237 All of my friends who have younger siblings who are going to college or high school - my number one piece of advice is: You should learn how to program. Mark Zuckerberg


+ 286 Facebook is really about communicating and telling stories... We think that people can really help spread awareness of organ donation and that they want to participate in this to their friends. And that can be a big part of helping solve the crisis that's out there. Mark Zuckerberg


+ 235 The question isn't, 'What do we want to know about people?', It's, 'What do people want to tell about themselves?' Mark Zuckerberg


+ 234 I think that people just have this core desire to express who they are. And I think that's always existed. Mark Zuckerberg


+ 285 For the first time we're allowing developers who don't work at Facebook to develop applications just as if they were. That's a big deal because it means that all developers have a new way of doing business if they choose to take advantage of it. There are whole companies that are forming whose only product is a Facebook Platform application. Mark Zuckerberg


+ 302 The real question for me is, do people have the tools that they need in order to make those decisions well? And I think that it's actually really important that Facebook continually makes it easier and easier to make those decisions... If people feel like they don't have control over how they're sharing things, then we're failing them. Mark Zuckerberg


+ 261 At Facebook, we build tools to help people connect with the people they want and share what they want, and by doing this we are extending people's capacity to build and maintain relationships. Mark Zuckerberg


+ 230 There are people who are really good managers, people who can manage a big organization, and then there are people who are very analytic or focused on strategy. Those two types don't usually tend to be in the same person. I would put myself much more in the latter camp. Mark Zuckerberg


+ 266 I updated my grilling app, iGrill, today and it now has Facebook integration that lets you see what other people are grilling right now around the world. Awesome. Mark Zuckerberg


+ 260 This is our commitment to users and the people who use our service, is that Facebook's a free service. It's free now. It will always be free. We make money through having advertisements and things like that. Mark Zuckerberg


+ 258 I look at Google and think they have a strong academic culture. Elegant solutions to complex problems. Mark Zuckerberg


+ 218 Our goal is not to build a platform; it's to be cross all of them. Mark Zuckerberg


+ 199 Facebook was not originally created to be a company. It was built to accomplish a social mission - to make the world more open and connected. Mark Zuckerberg


+ 219 Move fast and break things. Unless you are breaking stuff, you are not moving fast enough. Mark Zuckerberg


+ 252 The basis of our partnership strategy and our partnership approach: We build the social technology. They provide the music. Mark Zuckerberg


+ 226 What really motivates people at Facebook is building stuff that they're proud of. Mark Zuckerberg


+ 267 We want Facebook to be one of the best places people can go to learn how to build stuff. If you want to build a company, nothing better than jumping in and trying to build one. But Facebook is also great for entrepreneurs/hackers. If people want to come for a few years and move on and build something great, that's something we're proud of. Mark Zuckerberg


+ 206 I do everything on my phone as a lot of people do. Mark Zuckerberg


+ 197 People at Facebook are fairly used to the press being nice to us or not nice to us. Mark Zuckerberg


+ 183 The companies that work are the ones that people really care about and have a vision for the world so do something you like. Mark Zuckerberg


+ 241 We're running the company to serve more people. Mark Zuckerberg


+ 248 My goal was never to just create a company. A lot of people misinterpret that, as if I don't care about revenue or profit or any of those things. But what not being just a company means to me is not being just that - building something that actually makes a really big change in the world. Mark Zuckerberg


+ 288 There are a few other things that I built when I was at Harvard that were kind of smaller versions of Facebook. One such program was this program called Match. People could enter the different courses that they were taking, and see what other courses would be correlated with the courses they are taking. Mark Zuckerberg


+ 261 When you give everyone a voice and give people power, the system usually ends up in a really good place. So, what we view our role as, is giving people that power. Mark Zuckerberg


+ 287 Advertising works most effectively when it's in line with what people are already trying to do. And people are trying to communicate in a certain way on Facebook - they share information with their friends, they learn about what their friends are doing - so there's really a whole new opportunity for a new type of advertising model within that. Mark Zuckerberg


+ 293 I actually do think you're seeing this trend towards organizations just caring more about their brand and engaging. And so I think Home Depot will want to humanize itself. I think that's a lot of why companies are starting blogs, are just giving more insight into what's going on with them. Mark Zuckerberg


+ 257 I got my first computer in the 6th grade or so. As soon as I got it, I was interested in finding out how it worked and how the programs worked and then figuring out how to write programs at just deeper and deeper levels within the system. Mark Zuckerberg


+ 305 I hope that Facebook and other Internet technologies were able to help people, just like we hope that we help them communicate and organize and do whatever they want to every single day, but I don't pretend that if Facebook didn't exist, that this wouldn't even be possible. Of course, it would have. Mark Zuckerberg


+ 258 I literally coded Facebook in my dorm room and launched it from my dorm room. I rented a server for $85 a month, and I funded it by putting an ad on the side, and we've funded ever since by putting ads on the side. Mark Zuckerberg


+ 258 I think that more flow of information, the ability to stay connected to more people makes people more effective as people. And I mean, that's true socially. It makes you have more fun, right. It feels better to be more connected to all these people. You have a richer life. Mark Zuckerberg


+ 307 In addition to building better products, a more open world will also encourage businesses to engage with their customers directly and authentically. More than four million businesses have Pages on Facebook that they use to have a dialogue with their customers. We expect this trend to grow as well. Mark Zuckerberg


+ 259 In terms of doing work and in terms of learning and evolving as a person, you just grow more when you get more people's perspectives... I really try and live the mission of the company and... keep everything else in my life extremely simple. Mark Zuckerberg


+ 282 It used to be the case, like you'd switch jobs, and then maybe you wouldn't keep in touch with all the people that you knew from that old job, just because it was too hard. But one of the things that Facebook does is it makes it really easy to just stay in touch with all these people. Mark Zuckerberg


+ 306 Look at the way celebrities and politicians are using Facebook already. When Ashton Kutcher posts a video, he gets hundreds of pieces of feedback. Maybe he doesn't have time to read them all or respond to them all, but he's getting good feedback and getting a good sense of how people are thinking about that and maybe can respond to some of it. Mark Zuckerberg


+ 288 My friends are people who like building cool stuff. We always have this joke about people who want to just start companies without making something valuable. There's a lot of that in Silicon Valley. Mark Zuckerberg


+ 306 No one has done a study on this, as far as I can tell, but I think Facebook might be the first place where a large number of people have come out. We didn't create that - society was generally ready for that. I think this is just part of the general trend that we talked about, about society being more open, and I think that's good. Mark Zuckerberg


+ 263 When I was in college I did a lot of stupid things and I don't want to make an excuse for that. Some of the things that people accuse me of are true, some of them aren't. There are pranks, IMs. Mark Zuckerberg


+ 209 I don't have an alarm clock. If someone needs to wake me up, then I have my BlackBerry next to me. Mark Zuckerberg


+ 219 Facebook generated $3.7B in 2011. Mark Zuckerberg
