Mark Zuckerberg Says Facebook’s Goal Is No Longer to Be ‘Liked’

Kaya Yurieff, reporting for CNN Business:

“One critique of our approach for much of the last decade was that because we wanted to be liked, we didn’t always communicate our views as clearly because we were worried about offending people,” Zuckerberg said on a call with analysts.

He said his goal for the next decade “isn’t to be liked, but to be understood.” That’s because in order to be trusted, “people need to know where you stand,” Zuckerberg said.

The more you understand Facebook, the less you like or trust them. So: mission accomplished. Congrats, Zuck.
