Why we build. We build because we see potential. Because we see problems. Because we want to see what happens next. We build because we are changing the world. And that can’t be taken lightly. Because the opportunity to change things for the better comes with the risk of making it worse. We build because this last year was a hard… Facebook…. Facebook under fire… the FTC opening… we saw what happens when things go wrong. Privacy, security, data ownership… and learn how important it is to get it right.

We build because the most difficult problems require us to solve them together. Because together is where progress can happen. Where support is found. Where we understand overthrow and fall in much. Because together is where our world gets better. That’s why we keep building. Because this journey is still one percent finished. … – Video concludes.]

Mark Zuckerberg – CEO, Facebook

Hi everyone. Welcome to F8!

This has been an intense year. I can’t believe we’re only four months in.

Before we get started, I just want to take a moment to say how much it means to us that you’re all here with us today. Now I know that it hasn’t been easy being a developer these last couple of months, and that’s probably an understatement. But what I can assure you is that we’re hard at work making sure that people don’t misuse this platform so you can all keep building things that people love. And today I’m happy to share that we are reopening our previews so you can all keep moving forward.

Now I am looking out, and I see a lot of people that we’ve worked with for a long time here, and a lot of people have traveled to be here from around the world and a lot of you are building great tools that help people connect in new ways. And I just want to take a moment upfront to thank each and every one of you for all that you are doing to help bring the world closer together. Thank you so much.

Now we’re all here because we’re optimistic about the future. We have real challenges to address, but we have to keep that sense of optimism too. And what I’ve learned this year is that we need to take a broader view of our responsibility; it’s not enough to just build powerful tools. We need to make sure that they’re used for good and we will.

And we’re idealistic and we’ve always focused on all the good that connecting people can bring and there’s a lot of it. Just since the last F8, we’ve seen the me-too movement on the march for our lives organized at least part on Facebook. We’ve seen people come together after Hurricane Harvey to raise more than $20 million for relief, and we’ve seen more than 80 million small businesses use these tools to grow and create jobs.
