Mark Zuckerberg really thinks he understands people…and maybe he does. With over 2 billion active users on Facebook, plus the massive amounts of user data they collect, it’s possible that he knows more about you than you do.
But it still seems a little odd that he would liken his website, which alternates with Google as the most trafficked site in the world, to a church.
CNBC reports that later at the rally, the Facebook CEO discussed the use of Facebook as a community tool to bring it’s users closer together, “It’s so striking that for decades, membership in all kinds of groups has declined as much as one-quarter,” said Zuckerberg during the Communities Summit, “That’s a lot of people who now need to find a sense of purpose and support somewhere else.” He then seemed to liken Facebook to a church of sorts, “People who go to church are more likely to volunteer and give to charity — not just because they’re religious, but because they’re part of a community.”
What do you think? When you’re on Facebook, does it feel like a church or a community? Do you think that Zuckerberg is way off base? Let us know in the comments.
