Video is a very big priority. News is a very big priority, because a lot of people want to share that on Facebook already, and enabling public figures, whether they are celebrities or athletes or actors or politicians or leaders in different kind of communities, to get on Facebook and use the platform to distribute the content that they want. So those are the three areas that we’re — that you’ll probably see us investing the most in over the next year or so. And we’re making a lot of progress. I shared some of the stats before, but we’re very proud of what we’re doing, and we will have more to report soon. – Mark Zuckerberg
