Facebook's mission is to give people the power to build community and bring the world closer together. Through our family of apps and services, we're building a different kind of company that connects billions of people around the world, gives them ways to share what matters most to them, and helps bring people closer together. Whether we're creating new products or helping a small business expand its reach, people at Facebook are builders at heart. Our global teams are constantly iterating, solving problems, and working together to empower people around the world to build community and connect in meaningful ways. Together, we can help people build stronger communities — we're just getting started.

One new initiative we have is to create personalized videos to give people a delightful and easy-to-use way to share and celebrate memories. We've created Year in Review, Friendversary, Friends Day, Birthday, and other video products as part of this. Our goal is to continue to find new ways to combine creative concepts with the content people already have on Facebook to tell compelling stories.With this, we need people to help us build out more video concepts and variations.
