Worth Quoting

From  letter to prospective shareholders, which is included in the IPO prospectus.

Philosophy worth quoting and emulating:

  • “Facebook was not originally created to be a company. It was built to accomplish a social mission.”
  • “We think it’s important that everyone who invests in Facebook understands what this mission means to us, how we make decisions and why we do the things we do.”
  • “We don’t build services to make money; we make money to build better services.”
  • “We don’t wake up in the morning with the primary goal of making money”
  • “We’re going public for our employees and our investors.”
