Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg held the second annual Social Good Forum today in New York, at which he introduced new Facebook tools and updates to existing features.

Why it matters: Zuckerberg announced over the summer that Facebook's new mission was to "give people the power to build community to help bring the world closer together." The new tools and updates announced Wednesday are meant to expand users' communities, by connecting them with mentors or mentees, furthering donations to charities, and more.
