People at Facebook are fairly used to the press being nice to us or not nice to us.
More quotes by Mark Zuckerberg
I remember flying in, driving down 101 in a cab, and passing by all these tech companies like Yahoo! I remember thinking, ‘Maybe someday we’ll build a company. This probably isn’t it, but one day we will.’
Facebook is inherently viral. There are lots of sites that include a contact importer, and for lots of them it doesn’t really make sense. For Facebook it fits so well. It wasn’t until a few years in that we started building some tools that made it easier to import friends to the site. That was a huge thing that spiked growth.
More quotes about Media
[The New York Times] don’t write good. They have people over there, like Maggie Haberman and others, they don’t – they don’t write good. They don’t know how to write good.
You know, it really doesn’t matter what the media write as long as you’ve got a young, and beautiful, piece of ass.
If you are a little different, or a little outrageous, or if you do things that are bold or controversial, the press is going to write about you.
Arianna Huffington is unattractive both inside and out. I fully understand why her former husband left her for a man – he made a good decision.
When I hear about negative and false attacks, I really don’t invest any energy in them, because I know who I am.
I actually don’t read most of the coverage about Facebook. I try to learn from getting input from people who use our services directly more than from pundits.
What I try to keep in mind is that there are going to be a lot of articles that are going to be misrepresentative of what I’m about as a person and as a writer.
I can understand the British media and why they are doing that. It does not add up to much. I’m used in my life to not paying much attention to some things.
I notice in some of the newspapers that they have taken a bit of an interest in me. According to one headline Jeremy Corbyn welcomed the prospect of an asteroid wiping out humanity. Asteroids are pretty controversial and it is not the kind of thing I would want to rule out… without a full debate at conference and a review so can we have the debate later in the week.
One thing I’ve learned about the press is that they’re always hungry for a good story, and the more sensational the better. It’s in the nature of the job, and I understand that. The point is that if you are a little different, or a little outrageous.
It seems not more reasonable to leave the right of printing unrestrained, because writers may be afterwards censured, than it would be to sleep with doors unbolted, because by our laws we can hang a thief.
[on Megyn Kelly] You could see there was bloody coming out of her eyes. Blood coming out of her wherever.
My people keep telling me I shouldn’t write letters like this to critics. The way I see it, critics get to say what they want to about my work, so why shouldn’t I be able to say what I want to about theirs?
The most important service rendered by the press and the magazines is that of educating people to approach printed matter with distrust.
