Facebook (FB) is not so evil, despite all the loud criticisms. Critics (as Mark Zuckerberg recently emphasized) are only a small part of the more than 400 millionth user base. But Facebook also generates revenue, despite the fact that Zuckerberg claims that the service is “not for the money.”

At a press conference on Wednesday, Zuckerberg said: “It may seem strange, but we are not involved in FC for the money. And this is the absolute truth for everyone within the company. A big misunderstanding is to consider that we are doing this for the sake of money. ”

Zuckerberg is not a saint or a 19 year old kid who mocks *over users who trust him with their information, but still hardly believe it. He is the CEO of the most powerful social network on the Internet. Judging by the statement on Wednesday, FB needs money from advertising to exist in order to "ensure the operation of a network serving 400 million people." Nevertheless, no one believes that FC is trying to earn enough money for existence, no one expects this from them. Mark, it’s normal to want money (a lot of money), you just don’t need to pretend that everything you do is out of love for the user.

It can be argued that Zuckerberg’s comment (“it’s not for the sake of money”) was simply and incidentally that, they say, I pay too much attention to it. However, this seems to be a salutary statement for the entire company, like Google’s “don't be evil.” His words resemble those of Chris Cox, who said that “everyone who knows Mark knows that he [FB] is not doing this for the sake of money ... All the changes we make are not based on the desire to make money.” Cox said that FB was trying to build a “great ad product,” but he noticed right away that “this is not the main motivator, there are many other things we do.”

Apparently Zuckerberg is serious about changing the world, after all the offers to buy the FB, but in addition he also intends to turn the FB into a car for making huge amounts of money.

From a translator:
The author insists on repeating that he is on a drum for the amount of money earned by FB, he just wants Zuckerberg to speak honestly. For honesty, he, in general ...

* Excerpt from the correspondence of 19-year-old Zuckerberg, who recently launched Facebook:

Zuck: If you need anything about anyone at Harvard
Zuck: Just ask
Zuck: I have more than 4000 emails, photos and addresses .
[Mark’s friend] What? Where did you get it?
Zuck: The people themselves sent
