Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg speaks on stage during the 2017 Facebook F8 developers conference.

Zuckerberg also briefly addressed a tragedy that took place Monday, when a man posted video of a murder on Facebook. After being pursued by law enforcement for two days, Stephens shot himself to death in Pennsylvania yesterday. However, he also has predicted that the augmented-reality platform will soon be incorporated into eyeglasses as well.

Washington to Review Iran Deal

A better way to find bots: Facebook Messenger has thousands of bots on its platform, but they are hard to find. Further, Facebook Spaces lets users pause a "Spaces" chat at any time and move into a quiet space where they can take a break away from other people. During a live streaming event, users can comment with hashtags and the broadcaster can pick one of them and show a GIF related to that hashtag during the live stream.
