We will be sure to cover Zuckerberg's second keynote address again tomorrow on the last day of the conference. The adjustments are a part of his vision for a more "active" Facebook, where users interact and engage with one another instead of simply passively watching or clicking through content.

In January, Zuckerberg pledged he'd "fix" Facebook's biggest problems this year and said he was eager to solve major issues that plague the platform, including abuse and election interference.

Facebook's other messaging tool is also getting a couple new features. "We'll share more information when this begins testing later this year", the announcement continues. "We didn't expect these coordinated information operations and the network of fake accounts".

Dominican Republic opens diplomatic ties with China, drops Taiwan
The investment includes $400 million for a freeway and $300 million for a new gas-fired power plant. In June a year ago , Panama cut ties with Taipei to open relations with Beijing.

Since mid-March, when a whistleblower exposed how the London-based firm Cambridge Analytica mishandled data culled from tens of millions of Facebook profiles, Facebook has faced a slew of bad headlines.

There were also some online rumblings that the dating feature might be open only to people who list themselves as "single" and not those who are "married" or "in a relationship", ignoring the subset of people who are in non-monogamous relationships. He did not specify when exactly the process will re-open. The company expects more than 5,000 developers to attend. Essentially, Facebook said that it plans to get into the dating business. "We're building a version of this for Facebook too", he wrote in a Facebook post.

Before going into the details around updates to WhatsApp, Zuckerberg took a moment to thank Jan Koum, the CEO of WhatsApp, and said he was deeply grateful for all Koum's work. "We need to keep building and bring people closer together".

Report says WH chief of staff called Trump an 'idiot'; Kelly denies
White House chief of staff John Kelly denied reports that he had insulted President Trump and was growing frustrated with the job. In the course of the assembly, Kelly reportedly stated that Trump "does not even perceive what DACA is".

The new feature will allow users to find dates using the information people share about themselves on the platform.

"Your Facebook won't be quite as good as it relearns your preferences", said Zuckerberg.

Spaces was announced with support for the Oculus Rift VR headset; owners of the HTC Vive headset gained Facebook Spaces compatibility in December. The feature will be opt-in, meaning you have to choose to use it. Zuckerberg also stressed that the feature was built with privacy and security in mind from the start. Their regular friends won't see these profiles.

Tristan Thompson Breaks His Silence Following Khloé Kardashian Cheating Scandal
Its a really sad situation all over. "She's so strong and she's doing the best that she can", Kardashian West continued. And, her family was said to be furious with Thompson as the news broke just a few weeks before she gave birth.

Cambridge Analytica and data privacy continued to factor into Zuckerberg's presentation even after his prepared remarks on privacy. The images will be available in the main Facebook app in the summer. "So let's say that your friend is testifying in Congress, for example", Zuckerberg said with a laugh. "They can laugh together, cry together in the channel ... but let's not do that anytime soon".
