From Stocks to Talent – Today is not a good day for Facebook

facebook bad dayEveryone’s favorite social media site, Facebook, has been having a rough week. Let’s start by showing off the latest milestone that they have been able to hit which is – their stock going down to under $20 a share. At the time of this post being written it was sitting switching between $19.92 and $19.94, changing in that range after every other paragraph was g written.

No one wants to have their stock running that low as one of the largest tech companies in the world. To put that in perspective that means according to Wall Street they are now worth under $44.6 billion dollars which is what Microsoft offered to pay for Yahoo back in 2008. This may not be 100% accurate as different sites show a varied amount of outstanding shares though if the other # is correct the stock will need to fall to $16.28 to fall into the correct range.

Mark Zuckerberg talks about ‘Growing Up’ as a CEO and the history of Facebook

Mark ZuckerbergThose who had the chance to watch “The Social Network” film can remember Jesse Eisenberg playing Mark Zuckerberg; always wearing jeans, a t-shirt and regular sneakers. That’s exactly how the comedian Andy Samberg portrays him as well, especially in his skits on Saturday Night Live. Samberg was also pretended to be Zuckerberg at last year’s f8, where it took a few minutes for people to realize that it was Samberg and not Zuckerberg on stage.

What started as something small – Facebook – today can be translated to 3,200 employees and 845 million users and counting.

The problem that Zuckerberg has encountered is his age, which has contributed to him having an identity crisis. Perhaps not for himself, but for the rest of the world that saw him as a boy who could face difficulties dealing with the real world and real business. Many would point out his lack of experience since he didn’t have history of any stable jobs, and even though the internet was going strong, his actions could have destroyed Facebook.

Facebook Mark ZuckerbergMark Zuckerberg’s energies have gone into not blowing his top. Lately, he has been preening the world’s largest social network company to be transformed into a blue chip business. For eighteen months, as CEO of Facebook, Zuckerberg is reshaping the appearance and behavior.

In the second quarter of 2012 Facebook hopes to go public with its stock, with an IPO that has the potential of raising $10 billion, a valuation of $100 million or more. In light of the IPO, Zuckerberg is fighting to prep the company to look the part.

Mark Zuckerberg FacebookFacebook has had a continuous struggle with privacy and it has been painfully evident especially throughout the past few years. Due to their position they simply release stuff that clearly pushes the privacy boundaries for their users and once they get enough complaints they are quick to apologize, pull back…somewhat, and then reintroduce that same feature later on.

Take this for example; there are twenty-five posts by Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg that have been posted within the past five years however ten of those address privacy complaints while the others are about milestone celebrations and their products. Here is one of the messages he sent out to users regarding privacy concerns, the title was “Calm down. Breathe. We hear you.” (Not condescending at all right?)

Facebook Mark ZuckerbergFaceBook is probably the biggest phenomenon to happen to the Internet in recent times. Can you imagine someone claiming 50% ownership to this goldmine?

This is exactly what Paul Ceglia has been claiming for sometime now. He says he had hired Mark Zuckerberg for some projects in the past, and had financed FaceBook during its founding stages. According to the documents furnished by him, he was promised 50% of FaceBook shares. The contract dates back to 2003, when FaceBook was just making a strong emergence onto the World Wide Web.

The surrounding controversies are getting murkier, though, and a Federal judge seems to be losing his patience. The reason being, Paul has been unable to furnish the vital documents that could dilute his claims. The documents are supposedly stored in a flash drive. To worsen matters, Paul seems to have lost that flash drive which could decide the outcome of the lawsuit.
