Mark Zuckerberg: I need downtime ‘where I’m not ‘Mark Zuckerberg’ – CNBC

Mark Zuckerberg
For more than a decade, Mark Zuckerberg has been in the public eye, first as tech's golden boy and the genius behind Facebook and more recently as some manner of cyber villain who deceived its users. So Zuckerberg knows, perhaps better than most, that everyone needs "a space to just be ourselves and not have to worry about performing our persona, " he said in a comment on his own Facebook post about his future goals on Thursday. "I need time with family and friends where I'm not 'Mark Zuckerberg' but just me as a person, " he wrote in the comment.

Zuckerberg predicted in Thursday's post that it will take five or more years for our "digital social environments" to truly evolve. There is science to support Zuckerberg's ideas: Studies suggest that having strong social support decreases stress, lowers your risk of developing diseases and even allows you to live longer. However, researchers are still examining the role Facebook and other social networks play in fostering our relationships and well-being. For example, a 2017 study conducted by Facebook and Carnegie Mellon University suggests that "actively" using Facebook (sending messages or comments between friends) led to improvements in well‐being compared to "passively" liking or scrolling through the feed. But a 2018 study found that ....
