Why is he treated with such kid gloves? The guy is clearly a liar and I don't trust what is done with the information posted on Facebook. The company is totally overvalued, the stock release was completely overhyped. Yet he's treated like a saint in the media. Seeing him in the new phone commercials makes me ill.
I really don't know much about him. What has he lied about? That he stole the FB idea from those twins?

Get a land line and we will all be happy.
Zuckerberg has become a Republican supporter.
I understand now why Chris Hughes bailed on Facebook.
OP is just jealous. Nothing new here.
[quote]Zuckerberg has become a Republican supporter.
What a horrible thing to say about someone. Is that really true?
Well, he's a Chris Christie supporter. However, that might have developed after Zuckerberg announced his gift to Newark schools.
Zuckerberg and the worship over him is what finally convinced me of what I thought online tinhats believed the whole time... that the media and press truly do control a large portion of the public psyche.
We've been nearly brainwashed into believing this guy is a trailblazing genius who is somehow helping to save the world.
He's a smart business man who developed (ripped off?) an idea which was timed perfectly.
Like Google and it's bullshit "Do No Evil" mantra, Zuckerberg and Facebook have reasons for doing what they do, and it isn't to help the world. It's to make money and to acquire information. Information is power that can develop into awesome power.
Not saying he's outright evil, but he's not a good person.
Your embrace of Facebook enriches him. Join us, the un-Facebooked, and feel a little more free.
It has CIA ties. Part of the initial investment came from a CIA front company.
I've been a FB holdout for all these years, but now I'm feeling the urge to get a page and connect with friends and relatives I've lost contact with. I've moved a lot and just don't have many close friendships in my new city. That's why I'm looking for a little connection to my past. Thoughts?
"Oh my God. I'm back. I'm home. All the time, it was... We finally really did it ... You Maniacs! You blew it up! Ah, damn you! God damn you all to hell!"
We are switching to the new platform for The DataLounge this weekend. All of our mobile users have been using it for over a week and all first time users have been using it for about a month - which adds up to well over one million users. So we're ready to end this phase of the testing and move everybody to the new site. (more)
And yes, we've changed the look and some of how it operates.
Yes, we know you just *hate* it in well in advance.
Yes, we know we suck.
Yes, we are the biggest suckers that ever sucked.
But it was time for a change and with the huge shift to mobile it was long overdue. We've taken this opportunity not only to update the look but also make major changes under the hood (or "bonnet" if you're either British or pretentious or both). And we have to prepare for 2016 - a presidential election year where we can normally expect to see a 60% jump in traffic (yes, we've seen 5 presidential elections so far…Christ we're old).
The site has a bunch - nay, plethora - of new features which will make the site more usable: better search, the ability to ignore posters and threads, see link previews, to pick up a thread where you left off, spam and malware filtering and more.
If you want you can go explore and see for yourself, Click here.
And while running the tests we've noticed two interesting reactions to the new system - people are spending more time on the site and more people that come stay around longer and look at more stuff. Both good things. Yay!
Possibly we've not slain all the dragons and there will be issues that come up during the switchover. There's a help button in the lower right hand corner of the page which you can use to send us bug reports.
Please include as much information about the hardware (PC, Mac, Tablet, Phone etc), operating system (Windows, Mac OS, Android, iOS etc) and browser (Chrome, Safari, Opera, Internet Explorer etc) that you are using as possible to help us replicate and fix the problem.
Please note that complaints about colors, fonts, icons and the like are not "bugs" - they are design choices that we've made and we expect one or two cases of world-class bitching. But they won't actually cause headaches, scurvy, heart attacks, Restless Leg Syndrome, Morgellon's Disease or the vapors (but have your smelling salts at hand just in case).
Talking to DataLounge servers. Please wait a moment...
