It’s not unusual for tech CEOs to make political commentary – with this year’s F8 opener, Mark Zuckerberg kicks off the keynote with a dig at Donald Trump’s “wall building” comments. He believes now more than ever, we need to connect people together to help build a future – but hopefully a future that lives on Facebook, of course.
Zuckerberg also shared a 10-year roadmap for the company that basically consists of lasers, Virtual Reality, and bots. Zuck foresees the company making VR headsets small enough to look like ordinary glasses.
But before this all takes place, it’s important for Facebook to connect the world to the Web, and it’s doing so with a variety of projects such as drones and antennas. It plans to test in developing countries and smaller cities before implementing them on larger scales should they prove successful.
The roadmap seemed more like a preview of this F8 than the future, but it’s interesting to think about what exactly Facebook might be building 10 years from now that aren’t those three things.
