It’s going to be a big week for Facebook creator Mark Zuckerberg. First up is his birthday, which is today. Then later in the week, Facebook’s IPO, which is expected to be massive. But as Alistair Barr of Reuters reports, the 27-year-old tech titan isn’t slowing down — in fact, he’s aiming to better position Facebook for the future of the Internet:
Zuckerberg, 27, who started Facebook in his Harvard dorm room 8 years ago, said Facebook’s key priorities in 2012 were to improve its mobile application, to build stronger ties incorporating its social network with other online apps and to create a “transformative” advertising experience.
The company is “just getting started” with its mobile app, said Zuckerberg, who appeared on stage in a grey T-shirt and dark trousers at Palo Alto’s Crowne Plaza, flanked by Chief Operating Officer Sheryl Sandberg and finance chief David Ebersman.
