This is how it feels to lead Meta
Zuckerberg starts each day by checking the messages on his cell phone. There are “millions of notifications”, and they would rarely mean a good thing. Zuckerberg: “People save the good news to tell me personally.”

Zuckerberg via competitor Twitter

Better cuts in Zuckerberg’s eyes – how could it be otherwise – Instagram subsidiary of Meta. “Instagram is a super positive place. Some users even criticize that the content is too positive in a way. It’s easy to spend time there and soak up some of that positivity.”

About Elon Musk’s Neuralink project
Zuckerberg was also quite wary of eccentric billionaire tech pioneer Elon Musk (51) and his Neuralink project.
Background: The company Neuralink is investigating a way to connect the human brain and a computing device. This is meant to improve the performance of the human body.
In the near future, for example, neurological diseases of the brain should be able to be better treated, and in a few years the technology should also be available to healthy people.
Zuckerberg: “It’s very difficult to get information from a computer directly into the brain. My guess is that in the next 10 to 15 years, healthy people won’t just want something planted in their brains for fun.”
Because: People want a sophisticated product and not a brain chip that has to be replaced by a newer model in the next one.
