Facebook admits there's no 'silver bullet for connecting the world'

Facebook acknowledges there's no "silver bullet for connecting the world".

Yael Maguire, vice president of engineering for Facebook Connectivity, has claimed that in spite of the company having a long-term ambition of bringing the world closer together, there is no quick fix to the issue.

Yael explained: "There's no silver bullet for connecting the world.

"There isn't going to be a magic technology or business plan or single regulatory policy change that's going to change this. We really believe that it is a wide and diverse set of efforts that's required to do this."

Last week, meanwhile, Facebook announced it is ditching its Friend List Feeds.

The social networking site confirmed that the feature - which allowed users to create a personalised page only showing posts from a predefined list - had been shut down.

Faceook confirmed in a statement: "We'll be making these friend list feeds unavailable on Aug. 9, 2018, to focus on improving your main news feed experience.

"But don't worry -- you can still continue to create, edit and share to your friend lists."

Facebook confirmed that users will still have the ability to personalise their News Feed through the settings in News Feed preferences.
