Facebook For 'Everyone' And Not Just High End, Says Mark Zuckerberg

Facebook For 'Everyone' And Not Just High End, Says Mark Zuckerberg

But Facebook and Zuckerberg have found themselves at the center of some highly charged debates in recent weeks, and it's not clear whether those will be addressed at F8. However, the topics won't go beyond Messenger and Augmented Reality. He brought it up while making remarks at F8, Facebook's annual developer conference.

While Facebook says it is quick to take such content down, these incidents are reminders of how much has changed for the company from a year ago, when only celebrities had access to the Live feature.

Facebook's camera will use object recognition to suggest effects based on the object. The social platform could announce new features for Messenger, WhatsApp and Instagram.

That's also why it's opening up the Camera Effects platform to everyone, so they can create tools Facebook doesn't have the manpower or imagination to create.

Now in its 13th year, Facebook has held just 10 developer conferences and this is one of the largest in its history, with 4,000 people said to be in attendance. His intention of using technology to completely transform the world will find more sound footing this year as well as the issues that are plaguing the platform. While developers and investors will look to the Facebook CEO for guidance on where the company's heading, there are others who wonder how he'll deal with the growth problems. "This is an important time to build community", Zuckerberg said. "I think the bigger part of the solution is social as well". "We have a lot more to do here", he said, per the BBC, offering sympathy to the family of victim of Robert Godwin.

"We have a lot of work and we will keep doing all we can to prevent tragedies like this from happening", Mr Zuckerberg said.
