The Verge: Facebook just changed its mission, because the old one was broken

The Verge: Facebook just changed its mission, because the old one was broken. “Facebook used to repeat its mission statement so often that most tech reporters could recite it from memory: ‘To give people the power to share and make the world more open and connected.’ And it’s still the mission you see when you visit the company’s Facebook page. But in a remarkable letter published today, CEO Mark Zuckerberg acknowledged the severe shortcomings and blind spots that his company’s mission created. Going forward, he said, the company will consider what happens after it connects people — and try to manage those effects for the better.”
