Facebook’s mission is to make the world more open and connected, and to give everyone the power to share information. Why is it so important for people to connect? Connectedness puts information at people’s fingertips. Connectedness equals participation in the knowledge economy, which is the source of future growth, jobs and productivity. Connectedness creates opportunity. This keynote presentation will explore the role languages play in enabling Facebook’s mission.
