The 36-year-old hopes that the move will help retain workers that want to live in areas further away from offices, while attracting new talent from further afield.
Workplace from Facebook, the tech giant's communication offering for companies and employees, has more than five million paid users, up from three million in October past year. "But on a long-term basis, we're going to let people request to work permanently remotely", said Zuckerberg in an interview with The Verge.
"Facebook will be the most forward-leaning company on remote work at our scale ... we have been working on a thoughtful and responsible plan to do this".
Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg says his social network is working to prevent the spread of misinformation about the coronavirus. He said, "Even if something isn't going to lead to imminent physical harm, we don't want misinformation to be the content that is going viral".
"This is important for taxes and accounting, we're mostly going to rely on the honour code for this and you guys telling us where you're living", Mr Zuckerberg continued.
A spokesperson for Spotify said: "We announced the extension of our work-from-home arrangement for all Spotify employees globally". This is applicable in not only hiring but also in retaining some employees who just had to quit as they were relocating, he added.
"That means we have been missing out on a lot of talented people just because they live outside a major hub". Whereas, Cupertino-based Apple is bringing back its staff to stores in different phases after it shut down its retail operations amid the virus outbreak.
More than 95% of Facebook's staff are now working from home due to Covid-19 and will be able to keep their current salary until January 1 in the USA, after which employees will need to declare their location so that it can be adjusted. At the same time, employees have been able to avoid long commutes to the office, freeing them up to spend more time on their personal lives or office projects.
The social media giant is faced with finding a fine line between allowing freedom of expression while also maintaining a platform that does not spread disinformation or cause harm to its users.
The service will allow businesses - irrespective of size and budget - to list and sell products directly to consumers across Facebook's apps for free.
