500ish: “Facebook is over because they won. Because they have two billion users. Because they created a service which mirrors humanity. And humanity, as it turns out, is not great. I mean, yeah, sure, there are pockets of great. But there are also pockets of awful. And the awful will always overwhelm the great. And Facebook has created the perfect tool to enable this. At scale.”
Zuck only cares about money. Money, money, money, money, money.
He lacks empathy. If he were a more empathetic person he’d realize it’s time to step down as CEO and let someone run the show. The stock would fall, sure, but they’d eventually figure it out and Facebook could, perhaps, become a better place for people. Real flesh and blood people. As it stands now it’s a human emotion targeting system for advertisers and politicians.
Embracing some open web standards could also open Facebook to a broader audience. It could be a wonderful blogging platform and folks wouldn’t need to know what a blog is. Allow folks the option to write in public and not lock it behind Facebook login. Add RSS feeds to it while you’re in there.
It could be a really great destination on the web, instead of the cesspool we have today.
Zuck, step down so Facebook can be better. Go enjoy life, it’s short.
