Why should he care? He's a billionaire (or close enough to it).

And when he cashes out, Facebook will hire an executive team to start data mining (more than they do now) and that will kill the company. I'm still convinced Facebook is the AOL of this decade.

"Kidiot" remains the best word I've ever heard used to describe Mark Zuckerberg and his business acumen.

And yet, he's rich beyond the dreams of avarice. That's all that matters.

He's demonstrating the "Fark you, I got mine" business (and political) acumen that's currently driving the country (into the ground.)

Kahabut: FishyFred: JackieRabbit: Bill Gates and Paul Allen understood that their forte was in technology, so they hired real business men to help them operate and grow Microsoft.

It's funny you should say that, since Bill Gates is arguably the greatest salesperson of the 20th century.

Or luckiest, depending on how you look at it.

/Steve Jobs = Greatest salesperson of the 21st century

The difference between Gates, Jobs and Zuckerberg is simply this. Zuckerberg is enjoying his money. He is by far the smartest of the group, because he saw ahead of time that the business model was not sustainable.

MS has office and windows and Xbox in every office, home, living-room in the USA and a good chunk around the world.
Apple has a totally un-explainable fan base, and insane profits, on a dwindling platform.
Facebook has shiat all and knew it right from the start.

MS will still be around long after both of the other two are gone.

Facebook will not survive, and Zuckerberg farking well knew it when he went IPO. It was a cash grab and you are a fool if you didn't know it.


FB has been so brutally datamined that I'm not seeing where it ould be worth more in the future. IMHO people that bought stock were just caught up in the frenzy.

I've been saying that this is history repeating itself. Geocities, AOL, MySpace - things that are popular transition to 'less relevant' to 'not relevant anymore' to 'gone'. Unless someone comes up with a real game-changer for Facebook, I expect the same thing will happen to them.

Zuckerberg has iron fisted control of the company. If you bought Facebook stock for more than $15 a share, you're a stupid person and you should feel bad about yourself.

clyph: L.D. Ablo: Remember when everyone was on AOL?

Have you ever seen a hot nightclub become uncool and go under?

THIS.

I've been saying for the past 5 years that, like AOL and Myspace before it, the only reason people use Facebook is because everyone else does. The value of any communication product lies in it's ubiquity.


This. Everybody biatches about Facebook. About it's layout, about frequent changes, about bizarre design decisions.

Facebook continues to exist because of it's installed base. Not because it is any better.

Google+ has some really cool features. Circles and hangouts make a lot of sense. But there are virtual tumbleweeds rolling through Google+, so why bother.

Allowing the owner of a company to cash in on 100 years worth of forecasted profits all at once with no real consequences is not a good idea? The DEVIL you say!

I must be missing something. The company hasn't changed. The "problems" are not new. The only thing new is that some smart stock market types got everyone to pay WAY too much for the stock. Now that the booze/ honeymoon effect is over, people realize they got swindled by paying too much. Just another day on Wall Street. This is a manufactured problem and if people are calling for more Wall Street types to come in, they will only find ways to screw everyone worse.

Facebook is basically Tay Zonday.

Became very popular and exposed on the internet, but was a one trick pony that would never see any money for it.

Fixed that for ya. If you bought facebook share at all, you're a stupid person for not reading where they basically acknowledge that they will not be able to sustain their business.

In other words, Zuckerberg is an incompetent CEO... and he's the only thing keeping the company from being crushed under the pressure to profit in the short-term.
