Even on Facebook there are cuts.
A year ago we all surprised what happened Building 8. Facebook Lab, created for the development of specific projects.
It seems that this place is the starting point for the whole future of the social network. but Mark Zuckerberg and the company has decided to set a sudden reversal; removing the project.
Fast Company's colleagues say this December 14 Facebook confirmed that it closed all issues related to building 8. as part of the new process of internal reorganization.
Mashable was lucky enough to get a broader statement on the change. And it is confirmed that all walking projects are alive.
Portal-intelligent monitors, new expanded reality and virtual programs as well as potential Brain Computer Interface. They will not be thrown away, but will remain active in other areas.
An important point for closing Bulding 8 could have been its project leader, Regina Dugan. He came to Facebook in 2016 and started it in the lab in secret.
However, in 2018 he left his position in the company and never announced his formal replacement.
So, apparently, Building 8 was probably in contravention of his departure.
