Mark Zuckerberg Says Facebook to Look Into Cryptocurrency

  Mark Zuckerberg Says Facebook to Look Into Cryptocurrency Facebook Inc. Chief Executive Officer Mark Zuckerberg gave cryptocurrency enthusiasts a little optimism for the new year. Zuckerberg referenced cryptocurrencies in a posting Thursday in which he laid out how he will spend 2018 trying to correct persistent problems -— including the proliferation of hate speech and misinformation -— that have dogged his wildly popular social network for the past two years.“There are important counter-trends to this -- encryption and cryptocurrency -- that take power from centralized systems and put it back into people’s hands,” Zuckerberg wrote.

"The world feels anxious and divided, and Facebook has a lot of work to do," Zuckerberg, at 33 one of the world's wealthiest people, wrote in a post on the No. 1 social media network. In past years, his New Year's resolutions have included learning Mandarin, reading two books a month and traveling to U.S. states he had not yet visited.

SAN FRANCISCO (Reuters) - Facebook Inc (FB.O) Chief Executive Mark Zuckerberg said on Thursday his goal for 2018 was to put the business he co-founded on a more solid footing, a break with his longstanding practice of setting a purely personal annual goal .

This year, his post described Facebook as standing at a crossroads that required his attention. He cited the spread of hate speech on social media, use of Facebook by Russia and other countries to disseminate propaganda and criticism that the platform can be an addictive waste of time.

A new law in Germany requires social networks such as Facebook and Twitter Inc to remove online hate speech or face fines. In the United States, lawmakers have criticized Facebook for failing to prevent Russian operatives from using its platform to meddle in the 2016 U.S. elections.

In addition, ex-Facebook executives have publicly questioned whether using the network leads to unhealthy behaviors.

Zuckerberg said his "personal challenge for 2018 is to focus on fixing these important issues." He added that the pledge "may not seem like a personal challenge on its face," but that he would learn a lot. He did not say what he would do.

SAN FRANCISCO (Reuters) – Facebook Inc President Mark Zuckerberg stated on Thursday his objective for 2018 was to put business he co-founded on a more strong footing, a break with his longstanding practice of setting a simply individual yearly objective.

"We won't prevent all mistakes or abuse," he wrote, "but we currently make too many errors enforcing our policies and preventing misuse of our tools."

The issues Zuckerberg mentioned have created public relations and regulatory challenges, but have not made much of a dent on Facebook's bottom line. The social network reported $16 billion in net income on $36 billion in sales during the 12 months that ended on Sept. 30.

Shares on Thursday traded at $184.94, up 0.1 percent.
