What does it feel like to be Mark Zuckerberg?

October 25, 2007

As everyone knows by now, Microsoft paid $240 million for less than 2 percent of the online social networking site.

Of course many were rooting for Google to take a piece of the ever growing Facebook monster. Many people argued that the philosophy of Google & Facebook just meshed well.

For Microsoft obviously this is perfect. Google dominates mostly all of the ad space we are staring at for 10 hours a day. This will allow for Microsoft to take a nice chunk of this market. And with Facebook’s 50 million daily users, it is a wonderful place to sell ad space.

But here is what I am wondering:

What does it feel like to be Mark Zuckerberg?

He is a 23 year old, speckled face, Jewish boy from New York who just happened to create a software that would rate his friends, making him the CEO of Facebook.

But is he lucky? or genius?

The billionaire is seen only in Adidas flip flops … in ever single picture taken of him. Surely he can afford better flip flops.

But really how does it feel knowing that you have created something that has changed the world?


The official news from CNET states, “Facebook has invited some of its closest advertisers to an event on November 6 in New York,” a statement from the company read. “As part of it, Facebook executives will discuss new approaches for advertising online. We are not sharing any further details.”

This refers to Ad:Tech at the NYC Hilton, and guess who just received her press pass?!!
