CNET – Facebook CEO and co-founder Mark Zuckerberg addressed an adoring crowd at Y Combinator’s startup school today, speaking confidently about Facebook’s future and describing a world in which people will share a whole lot more than they do now via Facebook and other social companies.
“It’s sort of a social-networking version of Moore’s Law,” said Zuckerberg, who was interviewed by Y Combinator co-founder Paul Graham. “We expect this rate [of sharing] will double every 10 years. So in 10 years from now, people will be sharing about 1,000 times as many things as they do today.”
That, of course, is what Zuckerberg and the newly public Facebook are banking on: That the company’s 1 billion plus users will keep using Facebook for not just keeping in touch with friends but for interacting with brands as well.
Zuckerberg also thinks entrepreneurs need to focus on big, meaningful problems that they’re passionate about. And while he didn’t take a shot at Silicon Valley, as he did last year, he did complain that startups are generally tackling small issues.
