Is Mark Zuckerberg a great leader?
Right now, there are differing opinions on the matter.
Mark's letter to shareholders before the IPO is straight forward and enlightening. He definitely knows what he wants and how he plans to make it happen.
In his letter he lays out exactly what Facebook is about; its mission, goals, and purpose. There should be no misunderstanding about Mark's vision for Facebook when you read it.
It is difficult to get on the Internet these days and not see the ever-present Twitter, LinkedIn, and Facebook logos on every web page. While people under 35 seem to be taking the world’s transformation to social networking in stride, I am finding a trend of indifference or even resentment toward social networking among my fellow Baby Boomer Generation business leaders. The Kind of Comments I Hear:“Oh this is just a passing fad - remember all those Internet startups in the 90s?”“Facebook, that’s just for kids and people who have too much time.”“All social networking is about is letting people know where you ate dinner last night and what you thought of the restaurant.”
For many of these leaders, there are more than enough things to worry about in their day-to-day work life and building out a social network just doesn't seem like a priority. And indeed it may not be a priority-- until you consider a job transition.
