Are We Seeing A Big Downturn Of Facebook Next Year?
Negative News About Facebook Is Everywhere
While reading all these negative news about Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg’s exit as among the top 10 richest technology billionaires, the slow growth of the social network after its public offering, the millions of possible fake FB accounts etc.; these are all like bringing my thoughts back to what had happened to friendster. My once favorite social networking site which happened to be the pioneer in the business.
In my own personal view, Mr. Zuckerberg is a lone man overseeing a giant company. Compared to Google’s empire which is managed and controlled by three (2 are founders, 1 is the exec chair) equally young, intelligent but monopolizer founders. 🙂 With this, we can see the disparity in terms of management. It is always, “two, three or more heads are better than one” principle that will prevail.
What I mean about monopolizer, is because Google’s like wanting to own every piece of this and that. They’re no longer into that giant search engine only, they are also into advertising (AdSense, AdWords), communication (Android to several smartphones aside their own), deals and coupons (Google Offers), photo editing (Picnik.com), social networking (Google+), video sharing (YouTube) and a lot more.
Though the company’s mission statement “to organize the world’s information and make it universally accessible and useful” is somewhat soothing to the ears, but they’ve been flooded with complaints about intrusion of privacy, censorship and copyright.
So back to FB, according to other news , some of Mr. Zuckerberg’s top execs are leaving the company. Another sad information.
With all these, especially to Google’s continues supremacy in the internet world, do you think there is a big downturn for Facebook next year? Will FB looses its grip like what happened to friendster?
Personally, I don’t want it to happen. Let there be a continuing healthy competition between social networks.
No matter how superb and wonderfully created the Apple products are, I still maintained to be a BlackBerry user. I love Steve Jobs (the person who really hated Google, and we could see why), but I don’t like the idea that everybody’s using iPhone, iPad, iPod or Mac notebooks. 🙂
Same with social network, that is why, I should stick with Facebook no matter how great the Google+ is (according to them). Again, facebook downturn? Nahhhh! Forget it.
