In addition to preaching to developers, Facebook’s CEO has long used the annual F8 developer conference to communicate more broadly about the company’s future direction. Last year, he publicly retired the word “hack” as its rallying cry, introducing a phase in which Facebook invested more in listening to both users and developers and shoring up its network of products and services.
