Mark Zuckerberg pats himself on the back for a great 2018
It's the end of the year, and for many of us that means taking a moment to reflect on decisions past. For Mark Zuckerberg, however, it means taking a moment to bask in your manifold and unqualified successes.
The CEO published a roughly 1,000-word post on Dec. 28 detailing his company's various wins over the course of 2018 that, while admittedly helpfully informing the most oblivious of readers that there is still work to be done, seems completely at odds with how the rest of the world views Facebook's 2018. Namely, that it was an unmitigated disaster.
Zuckerberg starts by reminding us of the personal challenge he set at the beginning of the year: to fix Facebook. When it comes to issues like "making sure people have control of their information," and guaranteeing "[Facebook] services improve people's well-being," he writes that things are heading in the right direction.
Zuckerberg takes another moment to remind the reader that, yes, he is proud of how 2018 went down for his company — a year, need we remind you, that saw a precipitous decline in stock price and threats of regulation by U.S. lawmakers.
"I'm proud of the progress we've made in 2018 and grateful to everyone who has helped us get here," he writes. "I'm committed to continuing to make progress on these important issues as we enter the new year."
The CEO closes out his post with what, at this point, can only be read as a pleading note: "Here's to a great new year to come."
As we look back on 2018, and forward to 2019, we also hope for a great new year to come. For those of us not named Mark Zuckerberg, however, that increasing looks like a year with less Facebook in our lives. Here's hoping.
