Mark Zuckerberg (yeah, that guy) on the future of video:

On Facebook’s strategic and aggressive dive into video: “We hope to not get it wrong twice before getting it right,” Zuckerberg said, a nod to his company’s late and somewhat painful plan to bring Facebook from desktop to mobile four years ago. “Most of the content ten years ago was text, and then photos, and now it’s quickly becoming videos. I just think that we’re going to be in a world a few years from now where the vast majority of the content that people consume online will be video.”

On why he likes Facebook live video, the company’s Periscope-like live streaming video product:“There’s this increasing pressure to do well [on social media],” he said. “In 2016, if you’re sharing a photo you want it to be a good photo. What is really powerful about messaging platforms … and live video now, too, is it gives people more intimate environments and more raw environments where you have a reason to just be yourself. It doesn’t need to feel like it’s super curated.”

Text from Re/Code. Zuck had some things to say about Apple, encryption and AI as well. Check it out.
