As the people around the world are talking about their new year resolutions, the Facebook King Mark Zuckerberg has set a personal goal for himself in the new year. He invited people’s opinions on how he can spend 2015 doing something unique and interesting.
Zuckerberg has written on his public social networking page, “Every year I take on a challenge to broaden my perspective and learn something about the world beyond my work at Facebook”. At our last town hall Q&A, someone asked me what my challenge will be for the New Year and I said I’d love ideas from our community. I have an idea of what my next challenge might be, but I’m open to more ideas before the New Year officially begins. So share your ideas here!”
Zuckerberg has done uniquely interesting things in the past years too, including learning Mandarin and going vegetarian. He also vowed to meet one person every day that does not work for his company. Hence, something similar and interesting is expected from Zuckerberg this year too with him asking people’s advice for the same.
He has already received over 47,000 suggestions and it has become an internet sensation in the last days. Most of the people have suggested Zuckerberg to learn other languages like Hindi or Arabic. There are a few others who have suggested him to read a non technical book each day or spending time in a homeless shelter.
There are a few unrealistic ideas too that demand Zuckerberg to shut Facebook for a few days. Last year too, Zuckerberg committed to write at least one thank you note each day. His inbox is open for the next year’s suggestions, so feel invited to share your thoughts on the same.
