VIDEO: Zuckerberg Talks Facebook's Future, Mistakes, IPO at TechCrunch Disrupt SF

POLL: Would You Buy Stock From This Man?

Facebook's CEO talked about the company's future, a possible search engine, its "disappointing" IPO and more at TechCrunch Disrupt SF on Tuesday.

Facebook is going to focus more on mobile going forward, according to the latest story on .

TechCrunch backs that up with this story on Facebook's mobile future: "We are going to make a lot more money than on desktop," Zuckerberg said. Those mobile users also are the ones Zuckerberg says will return to the site day after day.

Wondering why the Facebook app on your phone was ridiculously slow until, oh, last week? Zuckerberg talks about that too, and why it won't happen anymore—also on TechCrunch.

Huffington Post looks at the tough questions Zuckerberg faces, after Facebook's stock performed lower than expected. TechCrunch also has its take to Zuckerberg's comments on the stock price.

But Facebook still is a great place to work, Zuckerberg said. The company also will build likely a search engine; continue to break and fix things; and keep an eye on other successful start-ups.

Finally, Zuckerberg said on TechCrunch that he would rather be underestimated. On that note, Facebook's stock rose 4.6 percent in after-hours trading following his speech.

Andrew, I agree that FB connects--BIG TIME!

What this article doesn't point out is that as FB becomes a publicly traded company it becomes more dependent on profits and will continue to become more commercialized. Doesn't anyone else think that that will alienate people more than draw them in? I hate the pop ups and pictures that I accidently cursor across that take up the whole page. FB - a company that produces nothing - is worth over $100 billion because of its advertising prospects. Social Networking needs to evolve into something else, and FB will need to be in the front for whatever the next phase is.

So Cathy how do the employees get paid?
Cathy P. September 13, 2012 at 09:37 PM
@Andrew: a substantial majority of their income comes from advertising of course, I didn't mean to imply it didn't and I think at least 12% comes from their partnership with Zynga (I think it's higher than that). I read that Facebook said it made $3.71 billion last year, so almost $500 million of that came from Zynga and even that seems low to me. Employees are also paid from revenues from advertising as well as payments and fees from business development transactions and mobile providers. I'm not pretending to be an expert on this subject and could very well be wrong. What I was saying is the the ads are becoming more and more annoying and if Facebook doesn't actually produce (a product) something like Google did with Chrome, Gmail, Checkout, Google Maps, etc., they very well may become just a memory in the future.
