    • QUOTE: For the past decade, Facebook has focused on connecting friends and families. …
      Facebook can help contribute to answering these five important questions:
      • How do we help people build supportive communities that strengthen traditional institutions in a world where membership in these institutions is declining?
      • How do we help people build a safe community that prevents harm, helps during crises and rebuilds afterwards in a world where anyone across the world can affect us?
      • How do we help people build an informed community that exposes us to new ideas and builds common understanding in a world where every person has a voice?
      • How do we help people build a civically-engaged community in a world where participation in voting sometimes includes less than half our population?
      • How do we help people build an inclusive community that reflects our collective values and common humanity from local to global levels, spanning cultures, nations and regions in a world with few examples of global communities?
