On the other hand, a user can also save mobile data as on connecting over the Wi-Fi the videos will be ready to download. This move will increase the more viewers of the videos and best for those who never want to waste their mobile data for videos.
With the addition of the feature it seems the social networking giant is leveraging the size of the social network by encouraging the upload of the videos. CEO Zuckerberg with his team trying to facilitate those posting the videos with a proper channel. Tech Crunch reported as:
“Facebook has been focused on helping you connect with people you already know,” he wrote. “We’ve built AI systems to recommend ‘People You May Know’. But it might be just as important to also connect you with people you should know — mentors and people outside your circle who care about you and can provide a new source of support and inspiration.
There are a number of models for how this might work. The Peace Corps creates service opportunities where people exchange culture and build new relationships. Perhaps we could build a new digital peace corps. Another model is Alcoholics Anonymous and Narcotics Anonymous, where people who have struggled with these challenges and overcome them go on to become mentors for others, with the hope of training them to one day become mentors themselves. This is something I’ve only recently started studying and working with our teams at Facebook to build.
