Mark Zuckerberg

And yet another Monday liveblog from Mobile World Congress where Faceook CEO Mark Zuckerberg is scheduled to give a keynote address on, well, whatever he wants. Zuckerberg's actually a fairly compelling speaker, and this should be a good one.

What to expect? Probably not any new Facebook phone announcements, folks. Instead, look broader topics that have to do with the Internet, social connectivity and the world in general.

We're liveblogging this one starting at 6 p.m. CET — that's noon in New York and 9 a.m. on the West Coast. Join us!

Watch the Zucknote along with us.

Really? Not interested at all in hearing what the individual who killed HUMAN interactions. And has made it perfectly acceptable messaging (as communication) instead of talking on the phone. Or "how are you"? "Just look me up on Facebook". Facebook is full of fake people.

I don't use, or acknowledge the word ""troll"".

I don't think Facebook killed human interaction. And, I don't think messaging killed talking on the phone. It's unfair to blame those two things, when people are the real culprit.

I text my girlfriend all the time, while she is at work. She can't always call me or pick up the phone. Being able to text is awesome: we can still communicate, and she can still get her work done. When she is on her lunch break or getting off of work, then we talk over the phone.

As for Facebook, I think it's an amazing tool to communicate with people, especially people that you don't necessarily communicate with on a regular basis. I don't use Facebook very often, but I keep a profile so that people that I haven't talked to in a while have an easy way to search for and find me.

I think, people are ultimately to blame for becoming communication deviant. I see more and more people lacking the ability or the will to want to communicate on more personal levels, unless it's a very close-knit circle. If you ask me, text messaging and social networking applications have only shown people's true colors: that they don't like to communicate, unless they have some degree of space that phone conversations don't provide; or that people nowadays are busier than before.

As always, this is MY opinion. Feel free to disagree.

Welcome to the world where there is always going to be a bunch of fake people man. Facebook, G+, Instagram, and the other thousands of social networks out there haven't changed anything. There are good people on social media.

I know there are good people on social media, a few, there are various ones I chat with on a regular basis in different states. Friends I know in person, I think of differently though.

I understand, brother. Trust me, I understand.

Not only is that a broad generalization, it's not even accurate. Blaming the tools for how they're used is backwards thinking. As a conservative, I guess you're used to doing that. And you have a FB account, hypocrite.

I hate Zuck as much but he didn't forced anyone to use it.

You should be mad at the general population, not at him (for this point specifically)

WhatsApp has new features when it comes to "privacy" in the app they have on their official website (Not Play Store). Worth looking at.

Why the hell does this jerk think anyone cares what he has to say anymore?? The guy had one great idea, and it made him a fortune....great! It's not going to happen again, so please just stop paying attention to this guy, everyone!

Not giving attention to the man who made a service which connects over 1 billion people all around the world might be quite hard.

Can we maybe get that new Paper app for Android? It seems to be a vast improvement over the standard Facebook App.

Facebook is full of fake people? I see more fake people in real life than i do on Facebook.

Facebook never killed human interaction...humans did. Just because the technology is there, doesn't mean it has to be used. People CHOOSE to use Facebook.
