For nearly 13 years now, Facebook has been trying to make connections between friends. Now, co-founder and CEO Mark Zuckerberg has a new - and bigger - plan.
Facebook will focus on creating a global community.
"This is a time when many of us around the world are reflecting on how we can have the most positive impact," wrote Zuckerberg in a blog post late Thursday. "We may not have the power to create the world we want immediately, but we can all start working on the long term today. In times like these, the most important thing we at Facebook can do is develope the social infrastructure to give people the power to build a global community that works for all of us."
