In the post, he mentions that Priscilla had been having a hard time getting proper sleep since they have had kids.

The light is visible enough to let her know when it's okay to wake up, but "faint enough that it won't wake her up if she's still sleeping", the IT whiz added.

The problem of white nationalism was magnified in March when the killer responsible for the deaths of 50 people in New Zealand posted a racist manifesto online and used the Facebook platform to stream the massacre at two mosques live. This is in line with CEO Mark Zuckerberg's message a few months ago where he said Facebook will undergo a "privacy-focused" revamp, which was prompted in large part by the security breaches and data harvesting scandals that have plagued the company recently.

With the latest update, Facebook users will see bigger icons for Stories on top followed by status update box.

He described his vision of creating a digital version of a "town square" where people can connect openly with friends, communities, and interests; and a "living room" where users can connect privately with each other.

Facebook's expansion continued with the tech giant opening its first office in Asia-Pacific. In the last three years, the number of people using Facebook's WhatsApp has nearly doubled. It also introduced the "Like" button in the same year.

Mark Zuckerberg knows he screwed up. Some praised the tech titan as a "genius".

Objectively speaking, it's a cool creation and one that we'd like to make for ourselves, even Zuckerberg thinks somebody should take the idea and run with it.

In fact, during the discussion, Harari points out that Facebook's content works like "feel-good" potion for the users - which ultimately makes them come back for more. You'll be able to invite contacts to watch the same material, and chat about it inside Messenger.

The company is also courting businesses, giving them ways to chat with customers and conduct transactions, similar to how consumers in China are already shopping on services like WeChat. This allows users to see products within a conversation.

Beyond the sheer size of the app, Facebook would also like to reduce the loading time of the app as well on mobile, down to less than two seconds from click to launch according to the blog post.
