Why should I join Facebook? Where do you see yourself in 5 years?
Y'all working on anything game changing?
Why should I join Facebook? Where do you see yourself in 5 years?
- Facebook уesFacebook is the only company that has a clear dominating profit margin and actually interesting problems (not every team) that is also not yet overgrown like Google
- ^ what does that have to do with conservatives idiot? The guy pointing out IQ actually meant to say leftists instead of liberals. There are right leaning classical liberals and there are left leaning authoritarianists as well. I never said libertarian is conservative.
In general, there are 3 axis:
X: left —> right
Y: Authoritarian —> Libertarian
Z: Economic, Social
Think of it as a cube. Left leaning libertarians on social issues for example want you to have the freedom to do whatever you want in the bedroom, pro LGB+. Right leaning libertarians on economic issues want less regulation and free markets.May 16 0
- Snapchat LampostmoreRecommend you check out Snap. Solid engineering teams, growing DAU, growing revenue. Chance of doubling/tripling in the next few years.
- Facebook phplolBeen at 3/5 of the faang, and FB is incredible. Almost 6 years now and didn’t even start thinking about moving on.
- Why should you? Do it if it’s what you want, no one is begging you. It’s a job, 99% of the people do it for the money, no matter what they say about missions and shit. Touch their salary and their ideals go to the trash. So if you like the money, come.
I see myself retired in 5 years.
- Amazon allinonAs long as Snap is innovating, Facebook doesn't need to... Copy+Paste is facebook's greatest innovation 😂
- You can stay in touch with friends and family that are on Facebook. In five years, you'll get friendship anniversary reminders. That is a nice way to know what's going on with other's lives without being intrusive
- Microsoft waesrdtfmoreYes! Facebook is growing and will be the leader in areas like AR/VR which is believed to be future of computing
- Like it or not much of the world’s communication flows through us.
The dominant paradigm that FB has focused on thus far is public sharing. In the next 5 years, we will likely be focused on sharing in smaller paradigms. Zuck talks about the town square vs the living room. In doing this, the paradigm of sharing will move to be more private.
We also recognize our responsibility to the safety of people and to democratic elections. This is a massively complicated technology problem. Everybody complains rather than provides solutions. We don’t have the luxury of just pointing out what’s not working. We’re trying to fix an unprecedented problem at unprecedented scale. This has massive implications to society when it comes to free speech vs regulated speech.
Messaging will continue to dominate the way people interact with society and we have some of the most popular messaging platforms whether it’s for western markets or 2nd/3rd world markets. That model will also evolve as they move towards being more private.
We will continue to get people connected to the internet who live in areas that don’t have internet today. Increasing penetration of information will be important as mobile penetration growth tapers.
We’ll continue to push forth in AR/VR. We recently launched the Quest, which represents the next step in hardware. We still have a ways to go until VR becomes adopted by the masses.
We’ll also continue to experiment in the hardware space. We recently launched Portal and believe that hardware plays a key role in how people connect with each other.
As far as our main app goes, people will always want to connect and share with each other. Whether it’s with friends or family or support groups; whether it’s text, photos, videos, live videos, short stories, or VR spaces; sharing will always be there. We’ll continue to evolve with it.
- Wow lot of defensive responses from FB people. Honestly ask yourself if you or anyone you know uses FB much anymore. Answer is mostly no and large decrease. Yah that’s not the same as real research but it is a big trend. Obvious that people are spending less time on Facebook, posting less and overall less engagement. Those are major trends in play. So go ahead and quibble over a little data point here or there but there is an obvious huge trend in motion...
- Dude, you’re pulling random articles off the internet. How about you actually pull an authoritative source like from our quarterly earnings report.
Here’s a tidbit of wisdom that might help you in life: Not everything you read on the internet is right or accurately portrayed.
And in case you didn’t know we own Instagram.
Maybe learn about our company before trying to speak authoritatively about it.
- Facebook gEKd54Hehe :)
How is criticizing your data resources and trying to be helpful by providing the actual data being defensive?
I'm actually trying to have a real conversation and show you where you are doing some lazy research work.
And as commented above - ig is and has been a fb product for quite some time. Many of the leaders and engineers building and initiating the projects that drove ig growth are the same ones that did it in fb... this is not a split company working independently.
People need to stop conflating fb the company with fb the product. All FB employees joining after the ig acquisition (>95% of the company) joined a world that included ig and were part of making it successful. There is this made up reality in peoples minds of some small ig team that's kept separate and is winning while everyone else is losing...
There quite a few fair criticisms you could make of fb, there is no need to invent facts/trends.May 13 3
- Amazon bgoc01I’m pretty sure you are not able to do 2 whole LC medium problems in one round. Better start working on that now because in 5 years you’ll need to do 5 LC problems in a single round instead
- Uber / Eng sightmoreThe major growth years of Facebook are over. Now you just get to tinker around the edges while playing defense.
Go for a place where the core functions are still being built. It will challenge you professionally and will be more interesting. Also greater chances of growing at higher multiples.
- Indeed wofjamakzSince when do these tech companies actually work on anything “game changing”? Their own goal is to increase shareholder profits, whether it be by releasing gender-bending selfie filters or by adding the newest way to integrate your entire financial life into your iPhone. If you truly want to work on something game-changing, I would recommend higher level cs research at a public institution.
