Facebook is now taking its anti-bullying campaign in the direction of happiness.
The social network’s CEO Mark Zuckerberg has said that “we don’t need to do much” to promote people’s happiness, adding that Facebook has already become the place where people can get support and help from the company, a sentiment echoed by CEO Mark Hurd, who was recently quoted as saying that “Facebook is going to be the happiest place on Earth.”
“We don, at least as we know it today, have this huge and wonderful, wonderful, beautiful space where people feel happy,” Hurd told Business Insider.
“We just need to make sure we do the right thing with the right messages.”
Hurd and Zuckerberg, however, disagree on the exact definition of happiness and the specific nature of the message they’re promoting.
Hurd said that his company has already made it clear that it’s a place where “people can go for help and support,” but that Facebook is the one place where he and his team can do “more.”
“If people want to say ‘I want to talk about happiness,’ that’s the place that we’ve found, and that’s what we’re going to do,” Hoolan told Business Insiders.
“It’s a very simple question.
Is happiness a place we can help people?
If we don’t think it’s that easy, we’re not going to make the right choices.”
Hoolan said Facebook’s approach to happiness is to “work on the problem” rather than simply pointing to the positive aspects of the world.
“We’re not just trying to change the way people feel about their lives,” Hulman said.
“There’s lots of things that we can do to make them happy, but we’re also working on the whole problem, and it’s not just about people being happy.
It’s about creating a community that is a little bit better, a little less lonely, and more connected.””
This is a beautiful thing, and I think that people should really appreciate it,” he added.
“People are going to say, ‘That’s amazing!
I didn’t realize this was possible.’
And that’s fine.”
Hulman also acknowledged that Facebook’s current approach to its social media platform doesn’t really help the company’s employees.
“People will say that it helps them more.
But I think it hurts them, and they’ll say that they feel sad,” he said.”
If you’re a CEO, it’s hard to find people who are happy on your team.
People feel sad on your company, but that’s because you don’t care about them, you don’ want them to feel bad.
And they have to feel like, ‘Oh, that’s terrible.'”
So we’re trying to make that process a little more human-centered.
“Hull, meanwhile, said that Facebook was still working on improving the message it puts out on the platform.”
This doesn’t mean we’re putting people down or giving them bad advice, it just means that we care about what we say and we care what the message is.””
If people think that we’re telling them that it feels good, that they’re going out and having a great time, that you’re going on vacation, or that you’ve just met some new friends, then they’re missing out.”
This doesn’t mean we’re putting people down or giving them bad advice, it just means that we care about what we say and we care what the message is.
“For Hoolman, the next step is to figure out how to get people to become happier on Facebook, which will hopefully mean a more diverse group of people who share the same values and who are “a little bit more comfortable” with different ideas.”
The key thing is that people are going out there and they’re being comfortable, and the first thing we want to do is make them feel good,” Hurlan said.
