Mark Zuckerberg will be old enough to run for president in 2020, but already he’s talking more about the common good in a new way. He was always the connector (as in the 2010 Time cover), but now he he says he wants to build specific socially cohesive communities online. CNET has a typical story here.
Mark made his remarks at a Facebook community summit.
I’m not much on joining groups and behaving elders; I perceive this as tribalism. And I wonder how well this could work on line.
Groups are private; you have to be approved to join. That doesn’t sit well with me.
Already, some Facebook pages behave erratically online. Today I made a couple comments, and the musician owner replied, as I got an email notification, and when I went to the page, the comments had disappeared.
