Mark Zuckerberg has dropped his lawsuits that would compel Hawaiians to sell their land

Source: Yahoo

Mark Zuckerberg is officially dropping the lawsuits he filed against hundreds of Hawaiians that would compel them to sell their inherited "kuleana" land.

Zuckerberg and his wife Priscilla Chan announced the news in an open letter printed in the Kauai newspaper The Garden Island on Friday.

"We've heard from many in the community and learned more about the cultural and historical significance of this land," the Facebook CEO wrote. "Over the past week, we've spoken with community leaders and shared that our intention is to achieve an outcome that preserves the environment, respects local traditions, and is fair to those with kuleana lands."

"To find a better path forward, we are dropping our quiet title actions and will work together with the community on a new approach," he continued. "We understand that for native Hawaiians, kuleana are sacred and the quiet title process can be difficult. We want to make this right, talk with the community, and find a better approach."

1. He is only doing this because he wants to run for president. Don't trust him.

6. No. Not the same way. That's the whole point, duh. It's very different.

There is the 'news feed' and the feed for 'friends'.

The simplest most obvious thing of the features that makes it so different is that it is notification driven.

Have you ever been on Facebook?

7. Thanks for the gen. I had gathered it had to be different, and you appear to

have realised that. You mean 'notification' as in blogs, when someone responds, as we are ?

Somehow I missed you remarks abiout 'feeds', which I think answers my questions. I can see the appeal of a dynamic interplay between news and gibber between pals and perhaps not so pally.

4. "We want to make this right, talk with the community, and find a better approach."

So, he still wants to go ahead with it, just convince them that he can be charming and friendly while he's doing it ? Or am I reading this wrong ?

5. Yes better approach

Translation: behind the scenes, quietly.
Over 690 acres in Hawaii is not enough. That should tell you a lot about him.
