For someone who hasn’t hasn’t had a very jovial 2018, it’s pretty tough wishing him a ‘happy’ birthday. But still, we at The Quint are putting our best foot forward and wishing Facebook CEO a very happy birthday!

Facebook was struck with a major blow after the whole Cambridge Analytica fiasco broke out where the social network website was accused of being careless with user’s data.

Former Cambridge University researcher, Aleksandr Kogan, created an app that was used to procure data of more than 50 million users via Facebook.

Ever since then Facebook has been caught up in a legal storm where Mark Zuckerberg has to testify in court about the whole incident and what Facebook will do to ensure this breach never happens again.

Mark has announced that Facebook is developing more stringent data sharing policies with apps and the company has also hired a team to track down such malicious apps online and delete if necessary.

In the recent Facebook Keynote a.k.a F8, Mark Zuckerberg talked about how Facebook is looking to be more responsible with user’s data and is also looking to fight against hate speech and terrorist content on Facebook.

But, apart from all of this hullabaloo, I think is fair that even Mark can have a day off and celebrate his birthday.

From giving us new ways to tell ‘Stories’, to flying a drone to provide internet to the most remote parts of the world, Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerbeg has giving the world a means to communicate and express. And that too FREE!

So, regardless of whatever has happened in the recent months with the social network website, one should not ignore Mark’s contribution to the society.

Which is why ee at the The Quint wanted to make sure he had a special day.

Happy birthday, Mark Zuckerberg!
