Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg has praised a US-based Nigerian woman who runs a secret Facebook group where members discuss “everything from marriage and sex to health issues and work problems”.
Female IN or FIN group was founded two years ago and has more than one million members.
Mr. Zuckerberg said the group was also “helping end the culture of silence that exists for women in some parts of the world”.
He added that he was looking forward to working with Lola Omolola and see how Facebook could help her build a community.
He said in a post on his page that the move was part of Facebook plans to help people building communities “both in the physical world and online:”
For the past decade, Facebook has been focused on making the world more open and connected — and we’re always going to keep doing that. But now it’s clear we have to do more.
We also need to bring people closer together and build common understanding. One of the best ways to do that is by helping people build community, both in the physical world and online.”
