Mark Zuckerberg Isn’t Getting Into the News Business

Facebook Nation: Mr. Zuckerberg Goes to Washington from The Atlantic on FORA.tv

Mark Zuckerberg will not be following Jeff Bezos. While Bezos recently expanded his empire buy purchasing The Washington Post, Zuckerberg has no interest in the news business. In a wide ranging interview with The Atlantic’s editor, James Bennet, Zuckerberg stressed that Facebook Daily isn’t going to happen.

Former journalist Terence Smith asked Zuckerberg if Facebook would one day serve as news creator, aggregator or forum, Zuckerberg said he felt the site was already the latter. “We don’t produce any content, because we try to be this neutral platform and a billion people are already generating content, so in that sense we are already an aggregator and a forum,” explained Zuckerberg.

The Facebook founder then added “I can’t see at any point us getting into producing our own content. I just think there are so many other people who produce awesome content that it’s not our place.”

However, just to be on the safe/one day hopefully profitable side, we bought FacebookDaily.com.
