MENLO PARK, U.S. -- After a string of bruising scandals that eroded trust in Facebook, the company famed for its "move fast and break things" ethos is taking a look-before-you-leap approach with new technologies such as virtual reality and cryptocurrency, according to CEO Mark Zuckerberg.

"In the last few years, there are a lot of important social issues that Facebook and the other big internet companies are really at the center of in society," Zuckerberg said in an exclusive interview with Nikkei at Facebook's headquarters here in Silicon Valley.
