Those who want to use social media as a real form of influence will need to bring passion, perseverance and cultural insights based on anthropological underpinnings into play as they learn to use it as the personal communications tool it was meant to be.
Through anonymous connections at Facebook, Banner Ad Confidential has gotten exclusive access to Mark Zuckerberg's holiday wishlist. He was apparently reluctant to ask for anything, but when pressed, he sent these items to his assistant Anikka.
The suit claims, because of Facebook's insatiable desire to break into the still untapped Chinese marketplace, it has aligned itself with a Chinese marketing firm that has been repeatedly accused of doing business with counterfeit entities in numerous countries across the globe.
We need to refocus our attention on school and its importance. We have to create a culture where education is of utmost significance and that it is the key to economic freedom and success in this country.
From privacy concerns to a botched IPO to "Winkle-gate," Facebook has faced a slew of naysayers, some of whom have predicted the company's demise from day one. But Zuck is one of the greatest business leaders of our time. Wall Street just doesn't know it yet.
Facebook appeared unprepared to launch, and its IPO was wildly overvalued. The question investors should ask themselves now is whether they should bail out, as many insiders and early investors did, when Facebook first went public, because there's a larger wave of potential selling before year-end.
This week, I turn 28-years-old, which means it's time to reevaluate life and consider how everything's going to change in my maturity.
Amazing -- I beat Mark Zuckerberg at something. In 2011, the billionaire Facebook creator made a one-year pledge to consume meat only from animals he had killed or slaughtered himself. He posted his kills on his Facebook page, of course. But then he caved on his promise after only a few months. I'm sure Zuckerberg made his pledge in good faith. Turns out writing code and raking in millions is easy for him. Killing dinner is hard. I suspect it'd be hard for most of us.
Are American citizens really expected to feel guilty about not paying enough tax? When we see such incredible government waste, should we be eager to fork over more money to see it so much of it squandered?
For the first time ever at TechCrunch Disrupt SF, where Zuckerberg gave his speech, an entire pavilion was reserved to startups creating social change.
When you hand over your hard-earned cash for a Mac or iPhone or iPad, or when you log into Facebook.com to check up on your fourth-grade crush, you pr...
The founder and CEO of a company that encourages more than 900 million users to share every detail of what goes on in their minds, is unwilling to share what's going on in his. I'm asking for Zuckerberg to act on the very ideology he describes as being core to Facebook.
While the empires of Facebook and Apple may never see eye-to-eye, their founders are kindred spirits. What does this mean for you, if you are Zuck? Be "like" Jobs and continue to invest in the undeniable power of vision.
Little stories are scattered througout the media suggesting inquiries into the methods used to determine the pre-IPO valuation of Facebook. But the real surprise is that nobody is outraged over the big cash-outs that investors and former founders are taking.
If you, Facebook, are fortunate to have your community give you a second chance, be transparent about your mission and values. People might be disappointed, but at least they'll see that you are telling the truth.
When dealing with people's thoughts and free speech, Facebook needs to be more flexible. By blindly applying policies, Facebook is inadvertently harming the very users whose lives it seeks to enrich.
