How Mark Zuckerberg defines ‘technology’

What defines a technological tool — one historical definition — is something that takes a human’s sense or ability and augments it and makes it more powerful. So, for example, I wear contact lenses or glasses; that is a technology that enhances my human ability of vision and makes it better.

The point of facebook is to “extend this really fundamental human capacity for maintaining social relationships with many more people (more people than Dunbar’s Number (150)).

Giving everyone a voice is relatively new in the world. Only in the past 10 years has the internet enabled billions of people to widely share their views and experiences. I believe that giving everyone this power is fundamental to creating more worldwide understanding.

A greater diversity of perspectives is also important for creating understanding. Before the Internet, we might have only gotten our news from a few TV stations or newspapers. Now we get updates from many more people and sources.

Facebook could help resolve the ongoing issues of racial tension and police brutality (by connecting so many people).
