Mark Zuckerberg

2018 was a roller coaster ride for the founder of Facebook (with all the things summing up to the Facebook – Cambridge breach in data). He was held accountable when it was publicized that Cambridge Analytica had harvested the personal data of millions of people’s Facebook profiles. Fighting through all this, Zuckerberg still stands strong today.

In his long New Year Facebook post, he has spoken about how Facebook started and where it stands today. He also penned down the various changes they had to make to ensure that Facebook was a safe platform for all its users. Starting with a clean slate – a pretty good way of starting the year, right?
