FROM VINCE: With all we’ve gained in this course, can we expect Zuckerberg to sustain his preeminence without concern for money, respect for traditional corporate personas, or willingness to ask for help?Talk about transformational leadership.
FROM VINCE: I think it would be good to show his profile page, or news feed, and number/ detail the chronological advancements here.You know the interface so well, I think you should map this out.Then, I’ll talk about each stage in brief, when it came out and which values it speaks to.Potential question: What makes FB capable of operating this way? Do you think the implement, then gauge response and readdress works?
Is it fair to attack FB for providing the outlet?Where does personal responsibility lie here?

We should do our best to use words from the class when discussing leadership. Check in the paper I tried to put some stuff in there about action logic and transformational leadership. At least when speaking I think you can relate it back to this stuff…
One critic has said, “Facebook is not driven by the leadership style of Mark Zuckerberg,” says Pace’s Kurnit. “It has become a runaway success function of Zuckerberg’s tremendous insight into what people want, how they relate and what socializing means online, kind of a ‘build it and get out of the way’ idea.” Do you believe as many have claimed that Zuckerberg is in fact an “accidental billionaire?” Or has his vision, and understanding of when to maintain control and when to share translated into a $50BN success. From the beginning, Zuckerberg has expressed a mission of making the world a more open place and early this year addressed the aforementioned revolutions as personal interest on his Facebook profile. What can Zuckerberg do to cope with the increasing censorship on Facebook in other regions due to its significance in the previously mentioned social revolution? There are 610,736,920 Facebook users, that is one account for every 11 people on the planet. Every month, more than 250 million people engage with Facebook on external websites through Facebook Connect. With a user base of this size, does Zuckerberg still have control over Facebook? Will his vision affect the way we use the site, or will the way we use the site affect how Facebook grows functionality? We’ve heard about their server problems in our MIST class. Recently Facebook launched the “Open Compute Project.” In which, through open source (sharing) they have built a data center that 38% more efficient and 24% less expensive to build and run than other state-of-the-art data centers. Is Facebook about to move into Hardware products? Where do you see growth opportunities for the website? For the company?
