SP’s: During the Townhall at IIT Delhi in India, Mark Zuckerberg said that his team will try and curb the Candy Crush menace for the greater good of its users. The question was asked to him by the students at the event.
Out of the two most frequent questions raised on the Facebook platform, Mark Zuckerberg, CEO of Facebook answered one of them yesterday. After visiting the “incredible” Taj Mahal, he visited Indian Institute of Technology, Delhi, one of the top engineering colleges of India.
Zuckerberg responded to a query of stopping the annoying Candy Crush invitations while he was addressing the students. During the promotion of the event, someone posted this to his post, “I don’t want any more invitations to Candy Crush. How can I stop it?” It is not a surprise that this was the top voted question on his thread. (By the way, here’s how to stop the Candy Crush Requests)
As Zuckerberg replied,
“This is where these Town Hall Q&As are really useful because I actually saw this question, that it was the top voted question on my thread. So I sent a message to the person who runs the team in charge of our developer platform and I said by the time I do this Town Hall Q&A, I think it would be good if we had a solution to this problem.”
Millions of people who feel the same (at least I do) about the Candy Crush requests should be thankful of this student because Mark Zuckerberg has promised to find the solution for this nuisance. If you don’t know the gravity of this problem then see the pent up frustration of the public for yourself.
Zuckerberg said that his developer team did not look through into the matter as hitherto because they didn’t know Candy Crush requests were this big a problem. But seeing the response himself, he will now give it a top priority.
Addressing at the event the CEO of the world’s one of the most valuable brands reflected that he had committed every possible mistake during the early day of Facebook and advised the students to not be afraid of committing mistakes, and instead learn from them and work hard to be successful. He also talked about the net neutrality issue and why it was so important for his company to provide easy access to knowledge to everyone in this world.
Well, that being the second problem that he just addressed. The first one was the Facebook dislike or empathy button to which he obliged to the users who were so eager to have it on their web page.
King’s Candy Crush developers have not yet commented on Facebook’s plans.
So, on a personal note, I would like to thank Mr. Zuckerberg for his kind attention to both these topics and hope that his team comes up with a plan soon.
