With an intervention on the social network, the number one for Facebook puts on black and white what are the objectives of the platform for the next decade: no longer one to do list of twelve months, but wider targets, planned between now and 2030. In the body of the article, the long post signed by Mark Zuckerberg of which we report below a summary of the most important parts.
Mark Zuckerberg and Facebook: promises for 2030
Heavy investments are expected on the augmented reality, starting from the creation of AR glasses with a project that among others also involves Luxottica.

Nonetheless, it would be unwise and short-sighted to think that one global community composed by over two and a half billion people cannot play a role of primary importance in defining the next developments in the online world and in the methods of communication. His number one, which only up to twelve months ago celebrated progress in studying Mandarin or programming AI for one's home as goals, now has broader objectives: we are finally facing a necessary hiring of awareness and responsibility?
