When asked about who he seeks out for mentorship, Zuckerberg had a response that got a round of applause from the Utah audience.
“The last few years have been really humbling for me,” Zuckerberg said. “I’ve become more religious.”
Zuckerberg also offered some insight into where he sees the world of social media evolving in the coming years. He noted that while tools like Facebook and Instagram — which his company also owns — are great at creating digital public spaces that he likened to virtual “town squares,” it’s the private communications arenas that are ripe for further evolution.
“When I look at our private social apps today, it’s pretty much just texting,” Zuckerberg said. “And, I think when you fast-forward, it’s not how it’s going to be in the future.”
