Most people know the name Mark Zuckerberg, the man responsible for creating and running Facebook, the multimillion dollar social media site, but the CEO now reveals that his priorities have changed. Zuckerberg reveals that his most important meeting of the day is with the one attention seeker he’s happy to accommodate: his daughter.
Facebook’s Mark Zuckerberg On Fatherhood And His Most Precious Moments
Along with wife, Dr. Priscilla Chan, Zuckerberg is a first time parent and that means making time for Max, the couple’s new daughter, no matter how busy he may be with running his business. The Facebook CEO recently shared a picture of himself feeding Baby Max, and even without the caption, it isn’t difficult to see the devotion and love between father and daughter.
“Most important meeting of the day. #LeanInTogether,” the Facebook CEO captioned the picture.
Mark shared the picture with his Facebook friends. Sorry, Instagrammers.
Being a father has become a full time job for Zuckerberg, but he’s not complaining. The Facebook mastermind says he enjoys his parenting duties, whether he’s taking Max to her swimming lessons, teaching her all about Star Wars, or helping Priscilla create a time capsule for Max’s future.
“A few weeks before Max’s birth, Priscilla and I took a morning to reflect and record our hopes for her and all children of her generation,” Zuckerberg wrote on his social media site about the time capsule. “It will be deeply meaningful to show this to her one day.”
Zuckerberg wasn’t alone in sharing his hopes for his daughter. Chan recently expressed her own concerns that the world will evolve into a better place, as Max and other children begin to grow and mature.
“We need to make sure that there are investments and programs that ensure that the future isn’t going to be like today,” Chan said. “The future is going to be better than today.”
Mark Zuckerberg And Facebook Respond To Terror Attacks
While the recent terrorist attacks in Pakistan may have earned a response from military officials, they have also earned responses from Facebook and from Mark Zuckerberg on a personal level. Upon hearing of the attacks, Mark posted a statement to his own Facebook account the public and governments to do all that they can to “create a world where understanding and empathy can spread faster than hate.”
Following his own suggestions, Zuckerberg used the social media site at his disposal to check on the safety of Facebook users living in the areas where those attacks occurred. Unfortunately, the plan suffered from a computer glitch that caused the safety check notification to go out to those not affected by the attacks.
This is not the first time Facebook has utilized the safety check feature, nor is it the first time there has been a glitch associated with the new Facebook function. Previously, the safety check was initiated in response to the terror attacks on Paris, but the feature was not activated following later attacks in Beirut. Reacting to criticism from Facebook users in regard to this oversight, Zuckerberg pledged to use the feature more regularly in future “human disasters.”
In a post generally addressing the increase in terrorism, Mark said that he believes the only way to fight the fear and hate, which is bred by terrorist activities, is to create an atmosphere of empathy and understanding. Mr. Zuckerberg said in the Facebook post that he hopes to help create a society in which no person, adult, or child feels alone or unloved. By creating that kind of positivity in our society, the Facebook CEO believes terrorism can be defeated.
