The technology could help Facebook stop being so centralised, he suggested
The technology powering bitcoin could help improve Facebook in the future, Mark Zuckerberg has said.
As part of a commitment to help fix the site over 2018, its founder said that he would look into the use of new technology to stop it being quite so centralised.
One of those technologies is bitcoin, he said, in an ambitious post that suggested Mr Zuckerberg is taking to heart the claims that Facebook is broken
In a long post on his own site, the Facebook founder said that he recognised that the problem with the internet is that it is becoming too centralised, and controlled by a few huge companies that include Facebook itself. That was in contrast to people’s vision that the web could be the perfect way of distributing and decentralising power, he said.
“A lot of us got into technology because we believe it can be a decentralizing force that puts more power in people’s hands.
