Artists Bill Posters and Canny have created this deepfake of Mark Zuckerberg as part of an exhibition called Spectre. It is just one example of their many stunning images created since joining forces last year.
Facebook was recently under scrutiny for refusing to remove a doctored video of Nancy Pelosi that appeared slowed-down so as to give an impression of being drunk. Instead, they instead announced they would rank it down and place it alongside third party fact checkers.
The Mark Zuckerberg Interview
Mark Zuckerberg, co-founder and CEO of Facebook, has overseen its growth through controversy-ridden years to reach billions worldwide. Additionally, his focus has shifted toward immersive experiences like augmented and virtual reality – these interviews provide an inside view into this young billionaire and his vision for social media’s future.
Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg can often be viewed with suspicion and his public speaking skills have come under scrutiny. Yet last week on Joe Rogan’s podcast he let his guard down, discussing subjects ranging from metaverse theory and exercise routines, as well as his relationship with wife Priscilla Chan.
Conversation was lively between them as Zuckerberg shared stories about his childhood in White Plains, New York. At an early age he started coding, and by 12 had created ZuckNet as a messaging program to allow his family to stay in contact. Later he dropped out of Harvard after his sophomore year to focus on building what would later become Facebook.
Discussion quickly turned to the Facebook scandal that surfaced in 2018, when Cambridge Analytica, a political data firm with links to Donald Trump’s campaign, gained access to personal information for 87 million users without their consent. Investors were alarmed at this news, leading them to call on Mark Zuckerberg to testify before Congress on his response to this scandal; he addressed it head-on and pledged to limit third-party access to user data going forward.
Zuckerberg also noted his company’s plans to launch a VR headset this October – around the time they typically host their annual developer conference, Connect. This headset should feature advanced facial and eye tracking features so people’s avatars more accurately reflect their real-life expressions.
The Mark Zuckerberg Q&A
Mark Zuckerberg must take responsibility for Facebook’s Cambridge Analytica data scandal and subsequent ongoing struggles with privacy concerns. In an attempt to make things right, Zuckerberg recently held a Q&A session for employees using Facebook Live; the goal of which was reportedly for him to field difficult employee queries while creating an environment of trust and loyalty that is core to company culture.
Questions were broad-based and focused heavily on Facebook’s recent troubles. Beyond standard concerns like privacy, questions included how they plan to combat election interference and fake news proliferation as well as whether measures exist within Facebook to ensure its platform is used for good rather than evil. Zuckerberg floated the possibility of creating an independent “Supreme Court” as well as how much data should be kept private or shared.
At one point in his discussion with senator Elizabeth Warren, Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg seemed taken aback when asked whether he welcomed regulation of his company – specifically those proposed by her that would break up large tech juggernauts like Facebook. Facebook executive responded tepidly stating that having regulations in place was important but noted that companies could also self-regulate.
Other questions brought out Zuckerberg’s more animated side, such as when he criticised a senator for not understanding how his company operates or asking easy or irrelevant questions about them. When asked directly about Africa – specifically Nigeria where Free Basics allows users to access sites and information without incurring payment -, Zuckerberg stated his plan for expanding it further by including other languages including Hausa in future months.
The Mark Zuckerberg RipStick Tour
Charles Ommanney’s photo documentary gives an impression that young CEO Mark Zuckerberg is widely liked, giving the young leader an image whose values are universally supported. Unfortunately, that may not be enough to overcome public mistrust after Facebook admitted selling $100,000 of ads to Kremlin-linked entities seeking to influence American politics and sow discord among voters.
The photo shows Mark Zuckerberg sitting in a large room surrounded by employees presumably from Facebook, wearing a T-shirt featuring a heart. He begins discussing how essential it is to treat others well at work and the necessity of creating an enjoyable workplace environment by respecting one another.
He emphasizes the value of being honest at work, suggesting you tell your boss about any concerns. Furthermore, he mentions Facebook’s new policy which allows employees to go home on time every day so they can spend quality time with their families.
This photo depicts Zuckerberg with his co-founders, Moskovitz and Parker. At Harvard at the time, they were all students in their late teens or early twenties and all part of a start-up venture. Moskovitz proved an ideal teammate for Zuckerberg because of his excellent programming abilities he could utilize when creating databases or setting up any other tasks necessary. Furthermore, Moskovitz was very dedicated and often would stay up late at night in order to keep their system operating successfully.
