The founder gets named as "an amoral, Asperger’s-like entrepreneur" by the founder of Mahalo.com
The Big Game, Zuckerberg and Overplaying your Hand | The Jason Calacanis
Last year, when I realized that Zuckerberg was an amoral,
Asperger’s-like entrepreneur, I told Zynga CEO Mark Pincus that
Zuckerberg would try and slit his throat. I knew this because I
watched Zuckerberg screw over his users again and again in terms of
privacy, and I heard about the stories of him screwing over his former
employers at ConnectU and his early partners at Facebook.
The money quote from Business Insider’s scoop comes from Zuckerberg
himself: “they made a mistake haha. They asked me to make it for them.
So I’m like delaying it so it won’t be ready until after the facebook
thing comes out.” He stalled and sandbagged ConnectU–then
Zuckerpunched them! Of course, the person he said this to was his
partner–Eduardo Saverin–who he reportedly screwed as well.
Another author Kim_Mai Cutler at venturebeat writes about facebook's founder Mark Zuckerberg:
He believes that people should have a single identity
He’s a proponent of ‘radical transparency’ or that transparency will overtake modern life:
But he is deeply conscious of the fact that most people don’t ascribe to that idea:
He believes that transparency has the power to create more empathy and tolerance:
He’s afraid that if the company doesn’t gradually open up, it will fail:
He believes that Facebook’s approach to privacy, in which users explicitly share their interests, is more ethically sound than Google’s data collection approach:
All very strong beliefs and in some ways odd with the mainstream idea of privacy.
Finally does this confrontation is going to hurt facebook? Not in the short term. The recently released data shows that Facebook is heading towards 500 milllion monthly active users. It has gained 10 million users since its F8 meeting.
ComScore reported that Facebook had 484 million users in March. The advertising tool showed 436 million users in its advertising tool a couple weeks ago, which we think reflects its numbers from sometime around that time frame. From here, the monthly worldwide growth rate gets harder to determine. ComScore showed 472 million uniques in January, then a drop 463 million in February before rising by 21 million in March. We tracked 373 million at the end of January, then 394 million at the end of February before going up by 42 million in March.
The facebook keeps on growing. May be some people will leave, some will be angry but they will stay on Facebook.
