On stage at Samsung’s event a day before his own keynote, Mr Zuckerberg called virtual reality technology “the next platform”, and explained his belief that VR headsets will become the social hubs of the future, with users gathering around them in order to connect to friends around the world.

Mr Zuckerberg also waded into the ongoing battle between Apple and the FBI over security, telling attendees that adding backdoor device access to prevent terrorism was not “effective” and not “the right thing to do.”

“We’re sympathetic with Apple on this one. We believe in encryption,” he said. “I expect it’s not the right thing to try to block that from the mainstream products people want to use. And I think it’s not going to be the right regulatory or economic policy to put in place.”
