It isn't every day that a CEO tycoon like Mark Zuckerberg shares their personal resolution with the masses let alone invites them to partake in it as well, but that is exactly what he did when he launched 'A Year of Books' on Facebook. A simple social media group, it challenges people to read a new book every other week in order to expand their knowledge "about different cultures, beliefs, histories and technologies," writes Zuckerberg.

With over 140,000 likes and counting, A Year of Books begins with The End of Power by Moisés Naím, which "explores how the world is shifting to give individual people more power that was traditionally only held by large governments, militaries and other organizations," according to Zuckerberg. A Year of Books shows that humanizing social media platforms can be a great marketing tool.
