On Thursday during a public Q&A session on Facebook, CEO Mark Zuckerberg took the stage for just over an hour to answer a number of questions from Facebook users. These questions ranged from why Facebook customers are forced to use the Facebook Messenger app, to why he's always spotted wearing a grey T-shirt, and more.
On the topic of his love for grey T-shirts, Zuckerberg blames his need to keep things simple in life. He doesn't want to make a lot of decisions when it comes to non-Facebook matters. Instead, he'd rather spend the energy on the social network he built.
"I'm in this really lucky position where I get to wake up every day and help serve more than a billion people, and I feel like I'm not doing my job if I spend any of my energy on things that are silly or frivolous about my life, so that way I can dedicate all of my energy towards just building the best products and services," he said.
Speaking of products and services, Zuckerberg also explained why Facebook members must install the Facebook Messenger app. He indicated that the social network would rather have one app to focus on doing one service well. Plus, it can be a pain to load up the main Facebook app and go through several steps just to send or receive a message.
During the Q&A session, Zuckerberg was asked to provide his opinion about The Social Network movie, which hit theaters back in 2010. Rotten Tomatoes gave it a 96 percent out of 100, and Metacritic shows a score of 95 percent out of 100. Needless to say, the movie did rather well at the Box Office, but Zuckerberg hasn't given the movie much thought.
Zuckerberg admitted that building a company and product isn't exactly glamorous, and that the movie studio had to make up or embellish certain elements. The plot was "overarching," he said, despite the studio going out of its way to get some details right, such as correctly reconstructing the Facebook office.
"There were pretty glaring things that were just made up about the movie that made it pretty hard to take seriously," he said. "I think the real story is just a lot of hard work."
