There’s one thing Mark Zuckerberg can’t copy

"Picasso had a saying," Steve Jobs once told a documentary crew. "He said 'good artists copy, great artists steal'." Though Picasso himself appears to have lifted the quote from TS Eliot, it was apt enough for Jobs, who said Apple had been "shameless" about stealing great ideas. If the maxim is true, then Mark Zuckerberg is Michelangelo. Over the years, the Facebook chief executive has become famous for lifting features and formats from competitors, sometimes crushing them in the process. "Do you copy your competitors?" he was asked while testifying before the US Congress last July. "We've certainly adapted features that others have led in..." he began, before being cut off as he tried to object that others had also copied Facebook. The ruthless founder appeared to be anticipating similar criticisms on Monday when he explained Facebook's new audio features in an online Q&A with the newsletter Platformer. Users will now be able to listen to podcasts within Facebook, record and broadcast brief audio "Soundbites", and tune into live audio chatrooms. The latter in particular looks like an attempt to ride the buzz around Clubhouse, an invite-only phone chat app that has captured the hearts of celebrities and the tech elite. "You know, I think every once in a while a new medium comes along that can be adapted to a lot of different areas," said Zuckerberg. "Feeds were kind of like this initially. We built News Feed in 2006, [and] then since then almost every social product has some sort of feed. "But a feed isn't one thing: it's a format that basically takes the shape and feel of the context that it's in. Your feed on Pinterest or LinkedIn is going to feel a lot different from your feed on Facebook, for example. We've seen that a bit with Stories, too, and that's certainly going to be true with these live rooms." Read More...
